Compiling Angband
« on: January 11, 2008, 05:47:34 AM »
has anyone ever actually tried to do it? it seems like every variant ive looked at so far has the same compiling instructions. me being new to *nix i cant seem to figure them out. it says to edit the makefile before you do "make install" how am i supposed to know what to edit in what makefile? theres like 13 makefiles in the steamband sources alone.

I'd like to help you, but I would need some more information about your system, the particular variant you are trying to complie, etc.

Usually you just need to do
$make -fmakefilenameforyoursystem
and then if you want the game to be installed on the system. You can play only with compiling, though.
$make install
or maybe
$sudo make install
if you are on a Debian-based distro.
Also,
$make -fmakefilenameforyoursystem clean
deletes all compiled archives if you wish to remove them or recompile them.

The makeflie usually is Makefile.std, Makefile.unix or something like that. If you happen to miss some libraries, and you are on Debian or Ubuntu, you can always install them with a few clicks from the repositories.

Howdy!

Can't help you directly, but here's a really simple tutorial (seems longer than it is, just check the size of each part) that might help you: http://www.eng.hawaii.edu/Tutor/Make/

Plus, it's in Hawaii!

see the compile for vanilla goes perfect. is it really hard or something to make this process work like vanilla does?

You are missing the -f ;). Try:

$make -fMakefile.gtk

And let's see what happens.

I don't think -f is necessary. What's that option? (not currently in linux)

I usually just type "make", and if there's a file named "Makefile", without extension, it compiles.

I usually just type "make", and if there's a file named "Makefile", without extension, it compiles.

Exactly, that works if there is a file named Makefile or makefile (I don't know if MAKEFILE applies too), but if there are several makefiles to choose from, the -f option lets you specify which one to use. In Angband and variants, if I remember correctly, there are several makefiles, but all have a extension, so you have to select which one to use that way.

Hope that cleared it up ;)

Alright the -f option was a step in the right direction but now i get a bunch of errors. im assuming theres something thats either not installed or not installed correctly thats needed to compile but im not sure what it is.

Well, the error seems to be GTK related: it can't find gtk-config

I ran a google search on "gtk-config ubuntu", and here's one of the first links: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=54308

It's a bit old, so I suggesting using the package manager to find out the latest version of the library they're suggesting! Googling and ubuntuforums.org is the way to go! ;)

Googling and ubuntuforums.org is the way to go! ;)

Quoted for truth, really.

You should be able to install gtk-config via synaptic or adept. But be aware that Steamband comes with lots of errors, I recall having a hard time compiling it. Other variants present no problems, though.

you see what i mean though? vanilla angband is ready with a configure file and compiles perfect. do the devs of variants just not care or is it really hard to set this up? infact they all just copy paste the same help file on compiling.

Maybe Vanilla doesn't use GTK, and it's a library the variant added, without bothering to update the config and makefile files? I find that odd though, GTK is a graphical library... why would they use a different one?

Sometimes they care so little I have had to edit their makefiles to *add all the source objects that were mising*. I mean, sometimes they just, as you say, copy/paste the original and not change whatever is needed to compile their new variant.

Since I understand little from makefiles and all that, I usually check the sources part and see if something is missing, then add it, and remove the sources which are not used in the variant. If there are more compilation errors I usually don't bother.

You can always try to either a) wine the variant or b) compile with another makefile. I think it is Makefile.std which sometimes works.
