This page explains how to build and test globulation2 for windows on a Debian GNU/Linux operating system.

For any problems or suggestions, don't hesitate to contact me. Ion bidon

Remark: if you use another mingw compiler than the one requested to download in this page, compilation might fail.

Compile globulation2 for windows on Debian using mingw

  1. install mingw :
    apt-get install mingw32 mingw32-binutils mingw32-runtime
  2. install wine from the wine repository :
    Change the file /etc/apt/sources.list and add
    deb binary/
    apt-get update && apt-get install wine && ln -s /usr/bin/wine /usr/bin/wine-auto
  3. create the following directory :
    mkdir libs
  4. download glob2_required_libs_mingw.tar.bz2 :
  5. untar the libraries like this :
    tar jxf glob2_required_libs_mingw.tar.bz2 -C ./libs
  6. download boost c++ precompiled libraries :
  7. manually install boost c++ with the following commands :
    tar zxf boost-1.33.1-mingw-bin.tar.gz
    mv boost/include/boost-1_33_1/boost ./libs/include
    mv boost/lib/* ./libs/lib
  8. Download a mingw compiler that works :
  9. As root, unpack the compiler (it will create a mingw directory in /usr/local) :
    tar jxf mingw-gcc3.3.1-linux-crosscompiler.tar.bz2 -C /
  10. Type the following :
    export CC="i586-mingw32msvc-gcc"
    export CXX="i586-mingw32msvc-g++"
    export CFLAGS="-I$PWD/libs/include $CFLAGS"
    export CXXFLAGS="-I$PWD/libs/include -I$PWD/libs/include/freetype2 $CXXFLAGS"
    export LDFLAGS="-L$PWD/libs/lib $LDFLAGS"
    export PATH=/usr/local/mingw/bin:/usr/i586-mingw32msvc/bin:$PWD/libs/bin:$PATH
    rm ./libs/bin/auto*
  11. download glob2 cvs (as anonymous for example) :
    export CVS_RSH="ssh"
    cvs -z3 co glob2
    cd glob2
    cp ../libs/bin/SDL.dll ../libs/bin/libvorbis-0.dll ../libs/bin/libogg-0.dll ../libs/bin/libvorbisenc-2.dll ../libs/bin/libfreetype-6.dll .
    change in :
    LDFLAGS="$LDFLAGS `sdl-config --libs` -lSDL_ttf"
  12. compiling glob2 :
    ./configure --host=i586-mingw32msvc
  13. To make the executable smaller :
    strip ./src/glob2.exe

Test globulation2 for windows on Debian

  1. download glob2_windows_runtime.tar.bz2
  2. extract it with :
    tar jxf glob2_windows_runtime.tar.bz2
  3. go in the glob2 directory where you have compiled glob2 and type
  4. copy the content of glob2/data/ to glob2_runtime/data/
  5. copy the content of glob2/maps/ to glob2_runtime/maps/
  6. copy glob2.exe which is in the src directory (glob2/src/) to glob2_runtime/
  7. run wine glob2.exe from the glob2_runtime directory and play :)
