The development of Glaxium is finished. There are problems with new Linux distribution
but I won't support Glaxium anymore.
So take it as it is...
Now my main hobby (MUSIC !!) is here.
2002/10/24 - Makefile.in (optional)
New Makefile.in. Relaunch ./configure after having downloaded it.
Thanks to Tuukka, it will test and eventually create directories before installing Glaxium.
Thanks to Pit, 'make install prefix=/YOUR_DIR_HERE' overload all the 'configure' directories.
2002/10/23 - Bug work around
After launching Galxium if the only thing you see is :
> Couldn't set 800x600 GL video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual
You have 2 solutions:
1 - remove line 148 in main.cpp: "SDL_GL_SetAttribute(SDL_GL_STENCIL_SIZE,8);" and stay in 16 bpp - you won't have any shadows :-(
2 - set 32 bpp in your X config and you'll enjoy all Glaxium special effects !
2002/10/21 - V0.5 Notes
Working on Glaxium is a hobby. I do it at home during my free time. Please keep that in mind when you report problems ;-)
Supporting all (Linux) plateform and all hardware is impossible, but i really try to support as many
as i can.
I need help: If you make a .rpm or a .deb (or any other package) that work for your plateform, i'll be happy to add it (or a link) in this page.
If you modify the code and make it work better on your system, i'll be more than happy to include your patch in the next release.
Call to Linux vendor: put an up-to-date glext.h in the distros !!!
Today with a Mandrake 9.0 or a Redhat 8.0 (don't know about the others) you cannot compile Glaxium without updating your glext.h file
although the minimum version it requires is more than one year old !!! (I've made the choice of refusing compiling
without that file because i don't want NVidia 3D cards owners to have the binary without nVidia extension in it.)
Thanks and I hope you'll like this FREE game !
