Glest 3.2.1 for Linux (update: loki installer available)
« on: 13 February 2009, 17:04:38 »
Download binaries and data. Source code also available (but we recommend the official binaries, compiled by me ).

Or simply use this Installer (official binary is included!):
http://liflg.org/?catid=7&gameid=87

The official binary was compiled on an old ubuntu 6.06 to be as comptible as possible (glibc 2.38).

Update:
If you have a very up to date debian/ubuntu system, you might get in trouble with
libopenal.so.0 which is not available on these systems. Try this workaround:

Code: [Select]
ln -s /usr/lib/libopenal.so.1 <PathToGlestInstallation>/lib/libopenal.so.0
Update2:

There was a bad multiplayer bug, more see here:

Thanks Titi.

Will you release a repackaged source tarball too, as you did for 3.2.0 ?

Wine is completly useless for multiplayer! It will get out of sync everytime you play!
And multiplayer is the only reason for this official binary.
