DIABLO on Linux
Avehicle7887 commented on 27 September 2019 at 5:15 pm UTC

legluondunetI'm curious to know if it works on others Linux distributions.
Avehicle my build is not Debian 9 compatible?

I tried your build and even though I can link it to a modern version of glibc (built from source too), it just keeps giving me a segmentation fault. To put it plainly, it doesn't work on vanilla Debian 9.

Getting devilution to compile on old distros (inc Debian 9) requires a bit of effort as it requires some newer version libraries (libsodium for starters). TBH it's not really worth spending time on getting it to work on older distros unless you have a very good reason to do so (in my case it's my main OS).

I even managed to run the same Debian 9 build on Ubuntu 14.04 (I have a fetish for running new stuff on old distros don't ask). Something I hadn't discovered before though is a crash when attempting to play in multiplayer, I'll play around with the code in hopes of getting it working. Singleplayer works nicely

Found and fixed the cause of the crashes. It's late but I will give it a small test tomorrow and re-upload it.

So here it is:

Devilutionx for Debian 9 (and older distros):
Tested on:
Debian 9
Ubuntu 16.04
Ubuntu 14.04

Built from official v0.5.0 -

The build will probably even work with newer distros but I haven't tested this.

@legluondunet: Nice job. I'm gonna try your build on Debian/Unstable soon
