Having Several Wesnoth versions on Linux (Ubuntu)?

Post by Blitzmerker »

Hi all,

How can I have more than one Wesnoth installation on Linux (Ubuntu 7.10),
e.g. Wesnoth 1.4 and Wesnoth 1.5+svn?

when compiling, you can give the ./configure script an option to tell it where to install. (and which directory to use as userdata)

Yeah, I basically compile with:

Code: Select all

./configure --enable-editor --with-preferences-dir=.wesnoth-1.x.x --program-suffix=-1.x.x --with-datadir-name=wesnoth-1.x.x && make
This allows a lot of installations at once, especially handy if you want to use the development versions. Then follow it with "make install" as superuser.

I haven't installed Wesnoth since 1.0.2.
Author of the unofficial UtBS sequels Invasion from the Unknown and After the Storm (now available for Wesnoth 1.14.x and 1.15.4+).
