eDuke32 APT repository is down

Hi,

eDuke32 APT repository is currently down. I presume it is because of site change in 2016 at duke4.net. Therefore, instructions at http://wiki.eduke32..../APT_repository are obsolete. Will the repo revived? Thanks.

Regards.

We're currently in need of a package maintainer. Last guy quit with no notice, so I took the repo down as the packages were obsolete.

EDuke32 ? wiki ? svn builds ? bugs

Is it possible that you upload the lastest 32 bit and 64 bit deb files? Cause I have compiled the source for Linux Mint; could not make it work... Thanks. :-)

No, but I can probably help you with your problem compiling it. What's your issue?

Well...

I got the source code via subversion repo. After installing the required distro packages I compiled the game with simple "make" command in the dir of the source; it succesfully compiled source, gave me eduke32 and mapster32 executables. I moved DUKE3D.GRP and DUKE.RTS files that I extracted from Steam to the dir of eduke32 executable. When I launch eduke32, it recognizes DUKE3D.GRP but fails to launch the game itself and crashes. Here is the message.

I tried to move DUKE3D.GRP and DUKE.RTS files to ~/.eduke32 dir that eduke32 created; no change at all. So, what would be the problem?

You could try these:
- Uncheck the Polymer button on startup.
- Build a debug version:> make veryclean && make RELEASE=0 (Since your build exited 'gracefully' already, this probably won't help much.)
- Try:> make SDL_TARGET=1 This has helped elsewhere on Linux.
- Use a more reliable source revision:> svn revert -R . && svn update -r 5267 && make

Try svn revert -R . && svn update && make -B RELEASE=0 first.

Hey again,

My problem is solved after more than half a year. The problem was actually the localization; just like some other examples, compiled version of EDuke32 fails to launch the game with unsupported localizations (ie Turkish) on GNU/Linux. Interestingly enough, .deb version of EDuke32 does not have such issue. The workaround is to launch the game with LC_ALL=C pre-argument.

LC_ALL=C ./eduke32


Not just Duke Nukem 3D, now I could launch even launch BloodCM mod on Linux!

Regards.
