Request: Static builds for FreeBSD And GNU/Linux
« on: January 11, 2008, 04:16 »

Is it possible to make static builds for future versions?

Both the FreeBSD and GNU/Linux builds of DoomRL are shared builds (Same for AlienRL).
Unfortunately, neither of them seem to work for me on FreeBSD, the lua5.1 port doesn't seem to install a shared library (ugh?!), and there is no linux-smpeg port (yet).
Both problems can be fixed ... But a better fix is to provide static builds for DoomRL and AlienRL or to include the required shared libraries with the download.

Thank you.

As far as Lua goes, I'll do as you say -- it'll be statically compiled into DoomRL. However, I can't statically compile SDL into DoomRL because SDL is LGPL-licensed.

As for the moment I don't know how to statically bind libraries anyway -_-.

-static to gcc

I think you can still include SDL by placing the shared lib in the doomrl directory ... But I'm not 100% sure about this..

O checked -- you can't. BTW, I'm not using GCC. Nor C at all -- DoomRL is written in FreePascal xP.

Just list lua.a alnongside your .o files when linking.

You'll also need to have LD_LIBRARY_PATH pointing to the location. But SDL is not a problem anyway.

BTW, I can port to anything that you find me a VMWare image file of. So if you want it ported to FreeBSD or 64 bit linux, please provide me with a link to a VMWare image :)

Let me rephrase:

"I *MAY* port to other systems, as long as you provide the VMWare image" xP
