Re: Science Fiction Trivia

I'll take a quick chance at this. I think there is a word that always sets the robots (and AIs in SF, to a wider scale) to always promptly answer "I was not programmed to do this". The word in this case would be "guess". Whenever they are pressured to overcome this part of their "programming", they ...

Yup, changing an working executable with yours is the safest way ... as long as it compiles :-D

Hah, old dinosaurs up, and alive! Drew, DaddyHoggy, and they also mentioned Selezen, but didn't see his name in the chat. I guess we can now be sure, if there ever was any doubt, that Drew betrayed Oolite for E:D :twisted: Quite candid to see him not recalling most "elementary" keys, and the fact th...

Re: Help Install on MX Linux, please

Yup, 1.9.14 is the version I have installed here. I cannot say I know too much of the inner works of the software, but it seems it has somehow been revamped from what they call "JACK1 design" (see their README.rst ). Although I didn't compile it myself, the way Slackware (my Linux distribution) prov...

Re: Help Install on MX Linux, please

I installed MX Linux in a VM (quite the struggle!), and my first launch gave me a similar message with yours, and an almost identical Latest.log file (besides the detection of graphics, and timestamps, of course). It turns that the fix is to "switch" the espeak library from the OSS/ALSA/Jack (?) ena...

Re: Help Install on MX Linux, please

[...] However, I don't quite understand what you mean by "picking what's needed/expected from the installation"...? That mainly means that Oolite installation provides for libraries your system might either not have, or not have the adequate versions, and the listing confirms it (the ./oolite-deps/...

Re: Help Install on MX Linux, please

Well, from the looks of it, you should be picking what's needed/expected from the installation.
Did you have the chance to check if OpenGL works on your system? E.g. what happens if you run "glxgears" (as the player user) in your terminal, do you see them munching in their window?

[...] Oolite was not installed when I ran the "find" command last night, and posted the results here above.[...] Oh, at least you ran it (unnecessarily ;) ) after you installed it as the player user into your home folder.
