Linux? 7 years 2 months ago #4280

short question, maybe long answer? I use linux for many years, but whats the point of that .diff?
either there is a package to compile for the client or not?
btw, are even Linuxers around here?

Hi Jomann,

Indeed, the DIFF can be used to "patch" the original source of openttd. So what you need to do on Linux is to download the source of 1.5.0 and apply the DIFF to that source. Please google a bit for a manual on how to patch the source with the DIFF.

Afterwards you just compile the openttd code by using this guide:


and it should compile it with all the fancy BTPro stuff in it.

Good luck!

Best regards,

frank said all, but I'll add some easy steps, just to make sure you don't try apply the diff on the OpenTTD trunk version ^^

so, after follow the steps told on the wiki link (to install necessary libraries, depending on your linux version), use this steps:
- goto a folder where you want to download the OpenTTD source, open a console window there (Terminal;
- download the source, with
svn checkout svn://svn.openttd.org/tags/1.5.0
- will create a 1.5.0 new folder, where is the source. Enter it;
- download diff file, example with
wget http://openttd.btpro.nl/OpenTTD_versions/BTPro_Client_1.5.0_A_15001.diff
- now you have the source and the diff file, lets apply the patch with
patch -p0 < BTPro_Client_1.5.0_A_15001.diff
- if all goes well, next step is type in terminal
- when configuration complete, lets compile it. I suggest the usage of
make bundle
- previous step takes some time but when complete will create a new folder, called bundle where all files needed to run OpenTTD are placed. Since I'm not a Linux user no idea what "make install" command will do, I always use the bundle option and after copy the created files/folders to the desired location. Not sure if the correct way but meh, it works xD
