Compiling and running RunUO on Ubuntu 9.10 Information: I intended to write a complete 'tutorial', step by step how to compile RunUO successfully in Ubuntu 9.10, but due the lack of time I have to post only the summary. These were the threads I've read to get it working: I built RunUO 2.0 svn181 on Ubuntu Linux What Version of mono did you use to compile it? RunUO 2.0 SVN 313 Package This is how you do it: The easiest way to do this without needing to use the terminal, is to make a executable file with the right commands: Create a new empty file, wherever you want. Open it and paste the commands below: Code (text): sudo apt-get install mono-gmcs libmono-winforms2.0-cil subversion svn export http://svn.runuo.com/repos/runuo/devel/ mv devel runuo cd runuo gmcs -optimize -unsafe -d:MONO -out:RunUO.exe -win32icon:Server/runuo.ico -recurse:Server/*.cs echo "<configuration>" >> RunUO.exe.config echo " <dllmap dll=\"libz\" target=\"libz.so.188.8.131.52\"/>" >> RunUO.exe.config echo "</configuration>" >> RunUO.exe.config Save and close. Now right-click it and change its properties/permissions to enable to be an executable file. (I don't what's the name of the option in english, as my Ubuntu is in portuguese.) Now you just need to double-click the file and click Run in Terminal. After a while you will see a 'runuo' folder in the same folder of this file. Inside you should see this files: If it's ok, your RunUO is ready! Running the server: This is quite easy. Just create a new empty file on RunUO folder with the following command: mono RunUO.exe Save, close and set it as an executable, as done previously. You can rename it to RunUO, for example, and create a shortcut on desktop. Now you can execute RunUO double-cliking the file you just created. Select 'Run in Terminal', when prompted, to see the server console in action. What does each one of those commands do? sudo apt-get install mono-gmcs libmono-winforms2.0-cil subversion Check if you have gmcs, windows forms and subeversion installed. If not, it will install for you. You will need to enter you password and allow it to download extra necessary packages. You can remove this lines if you know you have them installed. svn export http://svn.runuo.com/repos/runuo/devel/ Exports the latest runuo files to a local folder named 'devel'. mv devel runuo Renames the folder 'devel' to 'runuo'. cd runuo Enters the folder. gmcs -optimize -unsafe -d:MONO -out:RunUO.exe -win32icon:Server/runuo.ico -recurse:Server/*.cs Use gmcs to compile all the .cs files on Server folder to create RunUO.exe. echo "..." >> RunUO.exe.config The sequence writes 3 lines on a file named RunUO.exe.config and saves it on the same folder as RunUO.exe. This is needed as explained here (link). mono RunUO.exe Execute RunUO using MONO, that provides the necessary software to develop and run .NET applications. Commands that maybe useful: Type mono -V on terminal to see what version of mono you have. Type locate libz on terminal to find libz installed on your system. Some notes: You can ignore the 169, 219, 414 and 618 warnings while compiling the core, as explained here (link). I prefer to use Export instead Checkout the svn, but it's up to you. I used Ubuntu 32-Bit and Mono 184.108.40.206. I hope it helps some people I've seen around with the same doubts. Please, if I wrote something wrong, tell me, and feel free to ask your questions or give suggestions.
