[Solved] linux generic binaries error
on: November 13, 2011, 13:05

I’d like to report an issue with the latest generic binaries. There’s no readme available telling what to do run the game, but launching M.A.R.S. or marsshooter 64 results in errors.
shakaz:~$ /home/shakaz/mars_linux_0.7.4/M.A.R.S.
/home/shakaz/mars_linux_0.7.4/M.A.R.S.: line 20: ./marsshooter64: No such file or directory
shakaz:~$ /home/shakaz/mars_linux_0.7.4/marsshooter64
/home/shakaz/mars_linux_0.7.4/marsshooter64: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Installing libsfml-audio1.6 doesn’t fix the issue.

The fix is described at the end of this email from Felix :

Note that runnig ./marsshooter64 directly requires to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH manually. This is handled by the M.A.R.S.-script. I don’t know why it isn’t capable of finding the executable. Did you move it anywhere or is the self-containing directory left untouched?

If you keep trying to run ./marsshooter64, make sure to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH correctly. Therefore it is necessary to install SFML-2.0 (not 1.6). Because this version of the library is not stable yet, I would recommend using the shared object files located in mars_linux_0.7.4/lib64/ .
The resulting execution command would be something like

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=”./lib64″:”$LD_LIBRARY_PATH” ./marsshooter64 -cfg ./ -data ./data/
