Hi. I am the author of this tutorial which explains how to use ZeroRadiant
on Debian-based Linux: http://daffy.nerius.com/radiant/ .
The tutorial applies to games other than Urban Terror, but uses Urban Terror
as an example.
Recently, I have been getting several people from Europe emailing me
regarding various issues with ZeroRadiant.
I guess this both good and bad; it's good because people are actually using
my tutorial, even for games other than UrT.
Two days ago, I installed VirtualBox on my Debian Squeeze system. This is
my first time using a virtual machine. Wow,
it's so great to be able to install any version of Linux and test things
like ZeroRadiant on these.
So far, I have tested my tutorial with two new systems that I had not
previously tested. Ubuntu 10.04 and Ubuntu 10.10, using both
i386 and amd64. I have run into "issues" when running ZeroRadiant on the 64
bit flavors of these operating systems. I have
"issues" in quotes because I'm not sure whether it's a problem in Radiant or
a problem in Ubuntu.
The issue that happens on 64 bit Ubuntus is described here:
In short, q3map2 fails when -threads is greater than one.
I worry a little bit when I see that no SVN commits to ZeroRadiant have
happened in the past year. I might volunteer to look
into this pthread issue with q3map2, but if I manage to find a fix, will my
patch be committed?
Or does anyone already know what the problem and/or fix are? I do mention a
workaround in my tutorial.
