Dependencies

Dependencies for fetching latest source-code

If you want to get the source-code from the mercurial repository, you'll need these.

Name Homepage
Mercurial http://mercurial.selenic.com/

Build-only dependencies

You need these packages to build Hedgewars, but not afterwards.

Name Version (Latest Release) Version (Unstable) Homepage
CMake 2.6 2.6 http://www.cmake.org/
QMake 4.7 4.7 http://www.qt.io/

Core dependencies

You need these programs and libraries to build and run hedgewars. Note: You will need the development headers of the libraries for building only.

Name Version (Latest Release) Version (Unstable) Homepage
Qt 4.7.0 4.7.0 http://www.qt.io/
SDL 1.2 1.2 http://libsdl.org/
SDL_net 1.2 1.2 http://libsdl.org/

SDL_TTF 2.0 2.0 http://libsdl.org/
FPC (Free Pascal Compiler) 2.2.4 or higher ??? http://freepascal.org/

Bundled dependencies

You can build/run hedgewars using these packages from your system or use those that come with the hedgewars source

Name Version (Latest Release) Version (Unstable) Homepage
Lua 5.1 (not 5.2) 5.1 (not 5.2) http://www.lua.org/
Physics FS a.k.a. PhysFS 2.0.3 2.1.0 https://icculus.org/physfs/

Bundled Fonts:

Name Homepage Comment
DejaVu Sans Bold http://dejavu-fonts.org/
Zen Hei http://wenq.org/ From the WenQuanYi project. Font is internally known as “wgy-zenhei”

Optional dependencies

You don’t need to install these packages to build Hedgewars, but if you don’t, some features will be missing.

For PNG screenshots:

Name Version Homepage
libpng 1.2 http://www.libpng.org/pub/png/libpng.html

For video recording:

Name Version Homepage
libavcodec ??? http://ffmpeg.org/libavcodec.html
libavformat ??? http://ffmpeg.org/libavformat.html
FreeGLUT 3.0 http://freeglut.sourceforge.net/

Note: See also VideoRecorder for detailed instructions to build the video recorder.

If you want to build the server you need a couple of Haskell-related packages. First you need GHC:

Name Version Homepage
GHC (Glasgow Haskell Compiler) 6.10 https://www.haskell.org/ghc/

Then you need a couple of Haskell software. Note that package names for Haskell software varies wildly between Linux distributions. When in doubt, check your distribution’s documentation about any naming conventions they may have about Haskell packages.
