Jedi Outcast ported to Linux in 10 days.

It hasn't been that long since Jedi Outcast was open sourced for everyone to view, edit and tinker with.

Here is a link to a developer who has ported it to Linux in 10 days and it is fully playable.  Below is the GIT repository.

Re: Jedi Outcast ported to Linux in 10 days.

Does it also contain the resource files or just the launcher like with Quake 3 and we will have to copy some stuff from CD?

I think you have to own the game in order to play it:

In order to start Jedi Outcast, the "base" folder from your original game has to be copied into the folder of the Linux binary files.

strace -e trace=file yourgameexe will probably help to show what files it expects wink

Re: Jedi Outcast ported to Linux in 10 days.

Ok, lib32-openal and lib32-nouveau-dri are needed. But now I get:

./jk2sp: error while loading shared libraries: libXxf86dga.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

The package libxxf86dga is installed and it seems as if there is no package like lib32-libxxf86dga. So what to do?

Booting with apg Openrc, NOT systemd.
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Ahhh!!!! It must be PKGBUILT! Also, I wonder if the porter will also port Academy (would be awesome)…

Anyone think this might lead there to be a steam version?

All the best,

It's running. Sadly, I can only run it in Gnome Shells "Save Graphics Mode". When I start it regular, the Mousepointer is stuck in the top-left corner and I'm not able to use controls or quit Jedi Outcast.

Re: Jedi Outcast ported to Linux in 10 days.

I can't get it work.

To build a package from AUR for lib32-libxxf86dga i need gcc-multilib installed.
Installing gcc-multilib aborts with a conflict between gcc-libs-multilib and gcc-libs.
Can't see the error at the moment.

Any ideas?


Sorry for my bad English.

Re: Jedi Outcast ported to Linux in 10 days.

Install gcc-libs-multilib too, simple enough?
