Update December 2016: The new package jsoncpp is now needed to display the ingame server browser.
Update June 2016: New versions of “Rigs of Rods” are being built regularly now, see more. The instructions below are still valid.
I was able to build Rigs of Rods 0.4.0.7 and all of its dependencies on Slackware64-current. Generating packages out of them wasn’t that easy, but I managed it, too.
If you want to try out this game, follow these basic instructions:
First, you’ll have to install the packages from my repository. I use slapt-get, so I added this to my slapt-getrc:
and issued the following command to install all needed packages:
slapt-get --update && slapt-get --install FreeImage MyGUI MySocketW OpenAL angelscript nvidia-cg-toolkit jsoncpp ogre ogre-caelum ogre-pagedgeometry ois rigsofrods wxGTK3 zziplib
This also works with slackpkgplus – open up /etc/slackpkg/slackpkgplus.conf and make sure you ALTER REPOPLUS and ADD MIRRORPLUS:
REPOPLUS=( slackpkgplus slackror ) MIRRORPLUS['slackror']=http://schmatzler.de/my_slackbuilds/rigsofrods/
After that, install everything:
slackpkg update gpg slackpkg install slackror
Before starting the game, you’ll have to set up the basic directory and add content like vehicles, terrains etc.:
wget https://schmatzler.de/my_slackbuilds/rigsofrods/contentpacks/pack_contentpack04.zip mkdir $HOME/.rigsofrods/packs/ unzip pack_contentpack04.zip -d $HOME/.rigsofrods/packs/
Now you can run
to start the game. Have fun!
