• Building on the Pi

    From Dave Vandermeer@1:229/275 to All on Sat Sep 1 13:00:27 2018
    Could someone please steer me in the right direction as to getting the proper source code to get this to build on a Raspberry Pi running Raspbian. Every readme and tutorial I come across results in failure lol

    MBSE's internal FSED has some quirks that I don't like .. mainly with keyboard controls (movement, etc)

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    lol
    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    The one I built from current source in April of 2017 can be downloaded from:

    http://cmech.dynip.com/gedrpi.zip

    I don't recall any problems building it {shrug} though everything has it's quirks here and there lol :) If you just want to build it yourself I can look some more and probably find the source code I used on an SD card somewhere.

    lol

    I compiled it some time ago without any issues.
    What exact problem do you see?
    (see next post ... where somebody sent you a link ... I used the official source and had no issue to compile on rpi and odroid)

    Here's what I did to make it running without any problems.

    Make sure you have all the necessery packages installed.
    sudo apt install build-essential git libncurses5-dev zip

    Git is not required, but I just prefer to git clone golded from github repo. Which is:
    https://github.com/golded-plus/golded-plus

    From the directory where you would like to store source files run this
    git clone https://github.com/golded-plus/golded-plus.git

    Cd into golded-plus and run ./dist-gpl.sh, just make sure that it is flagged as
    executable.
    If not "chmod +x dist-gpl.sh" it first.

    That's it. You'll have binaries in the "bin" directory and zipped dist in the sources root dir.
    I copy binaries to /usr/local/bin, where my husky binaries resides.
    You would probably need to copy gedlnx, gnlnx and rddtlnx (if you need it) binaries.
    There also will be a "golded" bash script which supposed to be some kind of launcher
    that suppose to fix issues with CP866 charset, it requires "screen" package to be installed to run,
    but I don't use it. I just start golded with gedlnx.

    Don't forget to place configs into ~/.golded, you will find config samples in the golded-plus dir
    you cloned earlier. There is also a ways to change the default config file location.

    Please note that golded won't start without proper config (golded.cfg) in the right place.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear enouht, I'm lousy at explaining stuff :)

    It doesn't seem to understand cursor control codes when someone is using an Amiga telnet client (DCTelnet) .. and when using standard telnet client it doesn't seems to recognize them properly either, it either prints strange characters, or does nothing at all .. I might have to resort to using Joe until
    I can get this GoldEd+ problem figured out..

    *THAT* was the reason my golded wasn't working!

    For basic configuration

    gedlnx -INSTALL

    could be used. For more options start "gedlnx -?". Most interesting for first install would be

    -C<configfile> Use a different configuration file.
    -D Disable old obsolete configuration keywords.
    -INSTALL[=path] Start the quick install procedure. Look in path, if given.
    -V or -VV Verbose or Very verbose (-VV) config compile.
    Use -VV to debug.

    If anyone wants to master golded configuration i would recommend the seperate documentation archive.

    Regards

    Kai

    Well, that shows nothing, and that's why I thought that my compilation
    failed. In windows and os/2 the is a proper "golded.cfg not found" error message.

    No. Same here if i start without golded.cfg in correct place.

    Same here.
