Step-by-step install instructions for 64-bit Ubuntu (14.04 LTS or other)?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

The FAQ for getting TDM running on 64-bit Linux (which is now very common)

http://wiki.thedarkmod.com/index.php?title=FAQ#Does_it_run_in_64_Bit_Linux.3F

simply says: "Install the ia32 package". However, that package hasn't been part of Ubuntu for many years now.

 

Having scoured the forums, it seems that the actual answer for how to do it on modern Ubuntus starts with:

 

sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386

 

sudo apt-get update

 

sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libncurses5:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386

 

But then I get stick with an "Unable to initialize OpenGL" error, and I can't figure out which package to install to make it go away.

 

Can someone please post, and add to the FAQ, a step-by-step set of instructions for getting TDM running on a stock copy of both the latest LTS and the latest normal 64-bit Ubuntu?

Thanks :-)

Gerv

When a package is missing it should say something like "error while loading shared libraries...". Since this is not the case here you may not be lacking a package but instead have a problem with your configuration. What GPU and video driver are you using?

I had the same problem as you. I installed the libglew2.0:i386* package on my 64-bit debian (testing) to fix that. If you're still having this problem and if libglew2.0:i386* package exists in your ubuntu repositories, try installing it. Thank you for posting this question, it was very helpful to me.
