For the exhaustive change log, see Ahruman's post:

http://aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=5196

You can get the Linux autopackage installer from the following places:

https://developer.berlios.de/project/sh ... se_id=7424 (scroll to the bottom of the list)

ftp://ftp.alioth.net/oolite/oolite-1.72.x86.package

Or you can bring your current install up to date using rsync, by going into the directory where Oolite is installed (usually, /usr/lib/Oolite if you installed as root):
Code:
rsync -a rsync://rsync.alioth.net/oolite/dev/Linux-x86 .
(note the dot at the end!)

@Winston I went to the dir where my current copy of Oolite lives - c&p your rsync line from your post into my command line - waited for ages and ages and ages and when it finished oolite appears (from file size and date) to be unchanged. Have I done something wrong?
Code:
john@new-ubuntu:~/Oolite-dev/1.71-maintenance/oolite.app$ ls -la

Autobuild package working fine on Ubuntu 8.04. To upgrade from the 1.65 version in the repositories:
Code:
sudo apt-get remove oolite oolite-data
chmod +x oolite-1.72.x86.package
sudo ./oolite-1.72.x86.package
The shortcut may break, or not appear in the Menu at all. To run, use /usr/bin/oolite, which is different to Ubuntu/Debian's /usr/games/oolite.

I'm still struggling to get 1.72 onto my system.

Having downloaded this: http://prdownload.berlios.de/oolite-lin ... 86.package

onto my Ubuntu 7.10 Gutsy Gibbon system - what do I actually do with it?!

:oops:

Run it with the terminal, it's a shell script.

It wasn’t obvious to me either. :-)

(As I recall, what it does is install an installer. After that, you can open .packages with the installer. Recursive bootstrappy fun!)

:oops: Help! Fired up a terminal but how do I get the *.package to run under Ubuntu - I made it executable but that hasn't made any difference.

Being terminally dumb this week. :?

I’ve only done it once, a while ago, but I’m pretty sure I just went ./whatever.package and got a bunch of scrolling text and flashing windows in the approved movie-like fashion.

@Ahruman - I thought that's what you'd say and it didn't do that for me. :( nuts!

I installed it on Ubuntu 8.10 without a hitch. The only thing now is that it doesn't know where my OXPs are. Where should I move them to?

That seems to work except it won't load my trusty Imperial Courier. It says
Quote:
could not find ship type "impcourier-player" - please reinstall the appropriate oxp
However, there is definitely the line impcourier-player in the shipdata.plist file.

I may be running an old version of the oxp (I have impcourier2) but the wiki seems to be down so I can't check if that's the case.

Even more strange. In the afternoon even a whois and a ping wasn't working. Now whois and ping/tracert works, but the side is still not shown. Nowbody has reported the same problem and I already thought that Winston banned me, because he wanted to get rid of my updates - paranoia :-)
