Included is an updated patch for building on FreeBSD. Everything nows
works using the sdlquake2 executable including glx support. Due to some
mmap issues, sound won't work with the regular quake2 executable as well
as glx support is broken on my system because of some linker issues.
I'll send a patch if I figure out either. In theory all these changes
should be portable to Net/OpenBSD but I don't have a machine to test
them. All that would be needed would be to change all the #if defined
__FreeBSD__'s to #if defined __BSD__
For the guy who wanted to port to Solaris: it should be relatively
simple. You will need to do is search all the source for __linux__ &
__FreeBSD__ and make changes to get solaris working. In some cases no
changes would be necessary other than something like:
#if defined __linux__ || defined __FreeBSD__
-> #if defined __linux || defined __FreeBSD__ || defined __solaristag__
Others will require you to rewrite the ioctl arguments to use the
appropriate structs for Solaris. If you look at all the FreeBSD
specific changes, you'll get the idea. I found the source for FreeBSD's
linux compatibility layer extremely helpful, getting a copy of the
Solaris source (if still available) would be a good start. I was able
to do this without having any experience with the source or knowledge of
porting to FreeBSD. Feel free to email me with questions.
Which brings me to another point. I would recommend folding all the
unix files into the linux tree. If Solaris/Irix/etc. are at all similar
to Linux & FreeBSD this would be quite simple and make updating the
source a one-stop endevour.
