First of all, many compliments for the good work on this game! It's very cool and it's nice to see that old good games never die!
Then, the bitter part... I'm using Debian testing, I've followed the instructions as per this thread but seems at the very end something goes wrong:
rm -rf oolite.app
/usr/share/GNUstep/Makefiles/mkinstalldirs oolite.app /Resources
cp -r Resources oolite.app
cp -r Schemata oolite.app /Resources
cp src/Cocoa/Info-Oolite.plist oolite.app /Resources/Info-gnustep.plist
cp: target `/Resources/Info-gnustep.plist' is not a directory
make: *** [after-all] Error 1
Seems it creates a /Resouces dir in the main root, which I believe is not what is supposed to happen.
The prg is compiled and I found it in obj/oolite so I put Schemata and Resources into oolite.app dir, together with the binary. Seems working but I haven't had time to test it, yet, so dunno if there's something else missing (it may be working using the data installed by the stable deb package I've on my system).
Maybe you're already aware of this but I thought that I would find a reason to win my lazyness and post my appreciation for your efforts!
Keep up the good work!
EDIT: actually, I found http://www.alioth.net/oolite/status.html
which depicts how things should go. Modified it to match the location of mkinstalldirs for Debian and now I think I'm good to go!
Hopefully this will help anyone else in trouble compiling the game from src.
