linux installation

#1 Post by ShiraiJunichi » Sun Jun 18, 2006 11:17 pm

Linux novice here, so please bear with me...

I recently installed Fedora Core 5 on my desktop, and would like to work on my project from there- but I can't get Ren'Py to run.

I downloaded the tarball and untarred it to /home/junichi/py4renpy-2.3.5-5.5.0
I downloaded Ren'Py 5.5.2b and extracted it to /home/junichi/Desktop

I then typed
/home/junichi/py4renpy-2.3.5-5.5.0/python /home/junichi/Desktop/renpy-5.5.2b/run_game.py
and got the following output
Linux Terminal wrote:Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/junichi/Desktop/renpy-5.5.2b/run_game.py", line 42, in ?
renpy.bootstrap.bootstrap(renpy_base)

from pygame.base import *
ImportError: /home/junichi/py4renpy-2.3.5-5.5.0/lib/libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot restore segment prot after reloc: Permission denied
When I saw the "Permission denied" I tried logging in as root, and issuing the same command, but I had the same problem. Any help?

A quick google search of the problem makes it seem selinux related. Read some of the hits at:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=ca ... gle+Search

to see how to fix it.

Well, I disabled SElinux, but still get the error. Maybe a reboot would resolve it.
EDIT: Nope- still not working... maybe I'll try some more after I get some sleep...

Is it possible to get source code for renpy? I can't find it.

I downloaded:
py4renpy-2.3.5-5.5.0.tar.gz

and I see it contains x86 binaries for sdl, python, pygame, renpy. I am amd64 user so they are useless to me.
(I don't know how to build that _renpy.so)

P.S I think, you don't need supply sdl, python, pygame with renpy for linux since anyone can install them from distributive. Package that install like: "python setup.py install" and readme that specify dependancies will be perfect. So it will be possible to write ebuild, build deb, rpm.

The source for Ren'Py is part of the Ren'Py tarball, you can try compiling the dependencies yourself by downloading them from:

http://www.bishoujo.us/renpy/dl/lgpl/

The reason I provide all the libraries is that many of them need to be complied with specific options. (To ensure games remain identical on all three supported platforms.)

Specific options??? I installed all the dependancies myself without knowledge of those specific options.. are there some important ones I should know about?
"python setup.py install"
I believe that's what you do in the modules/ directory after you install all the dependancies. You also need to specify the RENPY_DEPS_INSTALL variable to where the dependancies are installed (i.e. /usr). Thereafter you should be able to run games with just the standard python command.

Yes. For example, SDL_sound needs to use a specific mod player library (of the two it supports), because only that one is reentrant. The options to freetype can change the look of the fonts a little. And so on.

Remember, my goal is pixel-correct output on 3 platforms.
