Journal bejiitas_wrath's Journal: Zdoom Compilation.

I have managed to compile Zdoom. I deleted the whole directory & started from scratch, and applied the patch and I managed to get it working.

I must have made some error with the source code but I have got it to compile perfectly, and the sound works using ALSA as well on my system, but I have set it up with the OSS sound output, as it runs a little faster with this option enabled. I have got it to work with ALSA as I said, but the performance of the sound is a bit hit & miss.

But I am very happy with the performance, running on a Pentium ][ 450 MMX 192MB, and 2MB video. I also love how the Nautilus file browser shows thumbnail image previews of the save games as well, this really will help when you have a few of them and you cannot decide which one you want to load!

I am happy to package up a binary distribution for those who want it, but not everyone runs Mandrake and it maynot work on a Debian machine. I do not know that much about the different library files on different distro's but I doubt it would work as well. I just thought Randy might appreciate a report of how well I got it to run with my hardware.

My Processor. Not too fast, I know but it is a fast reliable server!
