0.89 on Linux?

Post by Pithikos »

When will I be able to upgrade Spring to 0.89? Haven't been able to play for the last days.

On "Linux" is way too broad. The answer then must be "once you've compiled it".

what koshi means it depends on the distribution
arch and ubuntu already have it from what i understood, and you can try the portable version that's posted somewhere here: http://zero-k.info/Forum/Thread/2887, but it may not work for you

I am running Ubuntu 12.10 and added the repo and it seems we only have .88, is there a chance we can get .89?

12.04 has 0.89, you sure you added the repo and did apt-get update/upgrade?

After some search I just found out that I had to manually update the repository for Spring. Then I could just upgrade from apt-get.

as exactly described in the linux install guide for ubuntu i am guessing?

did you not find it? or just search the software center and assume that version was ok?

not asking to troll you i am asking to see if instructions can be improved.

Yes. However the instructions at http://springrts.com/wiki/Ubuntu_install are making me a bit dizzy to be honest. Would prefer if the instructions were shown in a much more minimal way.

I would like to see the "Updating to newer releases" paragraph shown in a bulleting list with numbers alone as the default install/update way.

Example:

Code: Select all

Install
1. Launch your favorite package manager (ex. Synaptic)
2. Add "ppa:spring/ppa" to the repository and update
3. Search for "spring" and install
The rest should be shown by clicking on a link "..more" or "advanced install/update" as if the user is advanced he will be having the brain to look a bit deeper..

Just throwing some ideas 8)
