    GPL Quake 3


    Anyone had any luck with this??

    I downloaded the zip file, extracted it, and read the README.txt file.

    In there (there's VERY LITTLE on how to install) It says from within the "code" dir to run:

    Code:
    ./unix/cons -- gcc=gcc-2.95 g++=g++-2.95
    I assume u need to change 2.95 for the relevent version of gcc. I'm running 3.3.5, so i ran:

    Code:
    ./unix/cons -- gcc=gcc-3.3.5 g++=g++-3.3.5
    and i get this:

    sdousley@homer:~/documents/programs/quake/quake3-1.32b/code> ./unix/cons -- gcc=gcc-3.3.5 g++=g++-3.3.5
    : No such file or directory
    sdousley@homer:~/documents/programs/quake/quake3-1.32b/code>
    the unix/cons file IS there......

    Anyone got this to work properly?

    this may be too late but I've gotten further (no success yet) by ignoring the #! and doing it manually:
    $ env gcc=etc g++=etc perl ./unix/cons

    I still get a build error further down the line, but this at least gets you started

    I'm curious as to why you are mucking about trying to compile a version of quake 3 for linux instead of just using the linux q3 installer ?

    ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/qua....32b-3.x86.run

    is there some advantag to the GPL version I don't know about ?

    Well, I can't speak from experience (since I just use the Id-provided client) but Icculus mentioned some improved sound support for folks who have AC97 sound cards. Other than that, I agree. Just sounds like an awful lot of work for very litle gain.
