The nightly build provides a way to be on the bleeding edge without needing the development kit (all the dev libraries etc.) Nightly builds currnently can ONLY be downloaded with rsync.
How to get it:
Go into the top level Oolite directory for your installation. This will be one of the following locations -
If you used the Autopackage:
Installed as root - /usr/lib/Oolite
Installed as a normal user - $HOME/.local/lib/Oolite
If you used the tarball:
Installed as root - /usr/local/Oolite
Installed as a normal user: $HOME/Oolite
Then run the following command - note the trailing dot (which might be hard to see if you are using a very small font with your web browser):
Code: Select all
rsync -rl rsync://rsync.alioth.net/oolite/nightly/Linux-x86/* .
There are some useful files that appear in is directory:
release.txt - The version number of the game (for nightlies - it's ooliteversion-minornumber-svnrevision, for example 1.64-dev1-310)
buildinfo.txt - Build info. IMPORTANT - Please include the contents of this file when making a bug report! Just 'cat buildinfo.txt' and paste the result. (Future versions of the oolite startup script will show this information when the game crashes).
changelog.txt - The change log, as extracted from Subversion
Also, I'm hoping to shortly have the nightly build also update a small web page which will show the status of the build, when it was last built etc.
