Compiling version 1.4.7...

Post by Dragon of Flame »

I'm having issues compiling the code. I've already untared it, but when I give the configure command, it runs smooth until I get this:

checking boost/iostreams/device/file_descriptor.hpp usability... no
checking boost/iostreams/device/file_descriptor.hpp presence... no
checking for boost/iostreams/device/file_descriptor.hpp... no
configure: error: cannot find boost/iostreams/device/file_descriptor.hpp


If anyone can help me out, I would greatly appreciate it.

Well, install boost iostreams. The wiki has instructions on how to get the needed dependencies for many distributions.

Ok, sorry if I seem noobish, but you will probably have to treat me as if I am clueless, it will be easier. My dad usually handles this kind of thing, but he's sick, so I'm trying to take care of this myself. Can you be more specific as to what I am supposed to do?

You need to install boost development package(s) in order to compile (should be "boost-devel" or something similar).
You might need to install some other dependencies as well, see http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/CompilingWesnoth

Following the instructions on the compiling page, I tried to install the package you pointed me to, and it asked for a sudo password. I'm guessing I may just have to wait for my dad anyway.

Ok, my dad got better and installed the package along with several others and the new install works. The only problem i'm having now is that there is no sound. I went into the preferences menu and under sound I clicked the music button several times. I dunno whats going on. Anyone else having this problem? Any suggestions as to what I should do?

You have yet to mention the distribution you use... but I dare guess it is debian based and the wesnoth-music package is not installed.

I have Kubunto 8.04 if that helps anything.

My dad just tried to install wesnoth-music and it said that we have the latest version...

Something else I felt I should say...do the attack sounds work on a separate package than the music? I say this because I have grabbed the music from the music folder and put them in an Amarok playlist to play while I play Wesnoth, but without the attack sounds, it's still a bit "silent."


Anyone have any ideas?

No.

Can you start Wesnoth in a text console (KDE: Konsole; GNOME: their homonym Terminal emulator), e.g. "wesnoth", and paste the text output here? It sounds like a sound driver issue.

Also, what version of the packages containing "SDL" in their names, are you using? What are their names?
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+).

Anybody got anything?

I apologize if I seem impatient. I also apologize if I have put anyone off for any reason with my noobishness. :oops:
