Ubuntu & MechVM

Post by arclight » Sun Sep 09, 2012 6:00 pm

So I know there is a very brief set of instructions in the MechVM FAQ for ubuntu but I'm pretty new to ubuntu.

The instruction:

"Then cd to the src directory in MechVM and type:

is where I stumble.

I cant find a mechvm directory or a src directory under that. The search function in the file manager never finds a "mechvm" directory.

Can someone point me to the right location?

Did you download and unpack the MechVM source code? You will also require several development packages, probably SDL-devel and qt-devel - not sure how these are named in Ubuntu.

Why do you want to use MechVM under Linux? You can configure MW2 for DosBox without MechVM.

If you have problems with MechVM, please attach the files MechVM.cfg and install-report.txt from the folder where MechVM installed your game.
