Subject description: Software for Xenial64
 

Hello
It looks like that Xenial64-7.5 is the operating system we have to work with in the near future. Therefor it makes sense to make our favourite software 64bit compatible and runable under Xenial64.
To facilitate their usage, a bare Xenial64 installation as the target should be assumed so all additional libs are included in the package.
What have you recently compiled for Xenial64 ?
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Uploaded so far:

eDuke3D (no game content)
QBasic64
VMware Player 14.1.1
Unreal Tournament 2004 (no game content)
Unreal Tournament 4
SuperTuxKart 0.9.3


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I would like to start with one of the most played first-person shoooters: Duke3D.

A linux-port of eduke32 exists. I compiled the last source code using Xenial 64 bit V7.5. Due to the fact that multiplayer is still an issue with the regular eduke32 I have added the last eduke32-oldmp version 12 of Striker because eduke32 makes most fun in a multiplayer game.

Download: http://www.mediafire.com/file/xh16mdm86wn9ynn/eDuke32_no_game_content_Xenial64.sfs

Some additional information:
The game content is not included. You might download the DUKE3D.GRP file elsewere: http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?search_id=1351193065&t=80513
The file has to be placed in root/.eduke32
Newer texture files like duke3d_lrp.zip or duke3d_hrp.zip can be placed in root/.eduke32/autoload.

The start of an eduke32-oldmp multiplayer-game is not easy and differs from the newer versions. A good help can be found here:
http://static.jonof.id.au/modsuppt/jfduke3d/releasenotes.html

shortend (3 players, Master-Slave game):
Host name IP address (assumption, replace with correct values)
Server 192.168.1.5
Player1 192.168.1.2
Player2 192.168.1.6

Commands in terminal for Master-Slave game play with 3 players:
Server ./eduke32-oldmp -net -n0:3
Player1 ./eduke32-oldmp -net -n0 192.168.1.5
Player2 ./eduke32-oldmp -net -n0 192.168.1.5

Tested with bare frugal installation of Xenial64 7.5 but might run also on older 64bit puppies.

Good luck and a lot of fun.

Interesting. I loved Duke3d, especially multiplayer tying up the phone lines with friends and cousins all night long haha. Smile

Hello
Next program I use regularly with Xenial64 is QBasic64, a Basic compiler with the full instruction set of the first Commodore Basic plus many more extensions.
I am not sure whether QBasic64 is suitable to develop complex programs but it can be used to breathe new life into our old Basic programs of the 80's.

Needs installed devx (C++).

Have fun.

PostPosted: Sun 11 Feb 2018, 06:38    Post subject: VMware Player  

Hello
This time I would like to share my installation of the latest VMware Player 14.1.1. It is freeware, so I could share it completely as a SFS-file.
I took a long time to figure out how to install the Player and get the USB-sticks recognized by the Virtual Machines... Nevertheless, the VMware-Installer copies a lot of libs to the system which are already part of Xenial. Maybe in the future I will remove them from the actual package.

The VMware Player needs 2 Kernel modules which are generated during the loading of the SFS-package. For this, you need have installed
devx_xenialpup64_7.5.sfs
kernel_sources-4.9.58-xenialpup64.sfs

I am unsure whether the modules can be generated/installed on a secure boot system. That's the reason why I decided to let VMware generate and install these drivers itself. In case they need to be signed, then this has to be done afterwards.

For the installation you should use "SFS-load on the fly" to add the package. After adding the SFS when you are asked to run, skip or end, you should click on the run button. Then the compilation of the modules starts. The progress indicator ticks the closed activities. VMware Player starts after the compilation.
I recommend to stop the Player and reboot the computer the first time only.
Then you will find the Player Icon in the System menu.
Good luck with your experiments with the VMware Player under Linux,

Good luck.

Hello
Did you play Unreal Tournament in the past ? We played this so many hours, especially in multiplayer mode. I think it can't be run/installed on Windows 10.
Therefor I decide to make it playable under Linux. The last patch offers a stable 64 bit binary which could be used for it.

My SFS-file contains the binaries but not the game content (textures, maps, sounds, etc.) for license reasons. I you have the game DVD at home you should be able to add the missing files easily.

http://www.mediafire.com/file/n2k6z39afokfvdj/UT2004-3369_Xenial_no_game_content_x86_64.sfs

Have fun with it.

Christian

P.S. More about Unreal Tournament with game content in the next post.

Hello
This is something for the younger Puppy-users.
It's SuperTuxKart (latest version 0.9.3). I made the package for my nephew.
