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 HW release) Version (Unstable) Homepage
Lua 5.1 (exactly) 5.1 (exactly) https://www.lua.org/
PhysFS 2.1.0 2.1.0 https://icculus.org/physfs/

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

Video recording

For the video recorder, you need either FFmpeg or Libav. And FreeGLUT.

Name Version Homepage
FFmpeg ??? https://ffmpeg.org/
Libav ??? https://libav.org/
FreeGLUT 3.0 http://freeglut.sourceforge.net/

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

Server

The server is built seperately. 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.
