« on: June 01, 2020, 20:10:23 »
Hi everyone
First of all excuse me for my english.
I just installed odamex in Linux Mint 19.3 using the Repository of the "DRD Team Debian" (you cand fin the instructions in this link: http://debian.drdteam.org/)
However, after installing odamex and timidity, i cant run it (odamex)
I get this error message in the terminal:  "Illegal instruction (core dumped)"
What can i do?
Thanks to you all

My best guess is that you're running a build that isn't compatible with your system architecture like a 64-bit build on a 32-bit system. Also, it looks like the most recent Odamex version that drdteam offers is 0.8.1: http://debian.drdteam.org/pool/multiverse/o/odamex/

You'll need Odamex 0.8.3 to connect to servers so you will want to compile the binary from the source. We have pretty good instructions here: https://odamex.net/wiki/Compiling_using_CMake#Linux
By building the binary yourself, you'll be assured that the binary is compatible with your system architecture.

Good luck!

Sorry i just found it.
I having no problem with client. It runned doom2 just fine. Very interesting source port, the music sounds great.

But im still having problem with odamex launcher. Whenever i try to join to game nothing happens.
This the result of the terminal:
execvp(/home/camilo/Downloads/odamex-0.8.3/build/odalaunch/odamex, -connect, 74.91.112.85:10671, -waddir, /home/camilo/Downloads/odamex-0.8.3/build/odalaunch:) failed with error 2!

-waddir is telling odamex that your wads are located in the /build/odalaunch directory. You might want to look at your paths in the configuration menu to make sure the wad paths are pointing to the appropriate locations
