Linux Setup Guide < FreeBSD install
FreeBSD-STABLE and FreeBSD-CURRENT
These are the development branches of FreeBSD.
As root, just type:
pkg_add -r springlobby
If you only want the spring engine:
pkg_add -r spring
As of 08 October 2011, this will install 82.7.1.
8.2-RELEASE and 7.4-RLEASE
These are the production releases. The FreeBSD production releases currently have outdated binary packages for spring (spring 82.5.1,) therefore if the above method of installation is used, online play will not be possible. To play online, use the FreeBSD ports collection instead. If you have not already installed the ports collection, detailed instructions are available in the FreeBSD Handbook . Once you have the ports collection, you can install the latest version of spring like any other port.
cd /usr/ports/games/springlobby make install clean
If you only want the spring engine without the lobby, replace springlobby with spring.
