The base of Mint 17.x is Ubuntu 14.04. The broken 0 A.D. build is one of the release blockers that the developers decided to skip when releasing Alpha 21.

Upgrading Mint is the most recommended solution. I didn't think that this particular defect would raise its ugly horns like this. I even had to address a similar complaint in the Mint Forums.

Thanks for the reply sphyrth...

When you sat "Upgrading Mint is the most recommended solution" do you mean the Mint maintainers or is it something you recommend I could do?

I have noted that zzippy suggest building 0ad from the source files might be an option. is that easy to do? are there any special paramenters I'd need to include (zzippy suggested using "--with-system-mozjs38" as an option. Is there a sticky note that you could point me to on building the game from the source files.

Thanks in advance for any help you can supply.

[UPDATE - I've looked at the Buildinstructions page (http://trac.wildfiregames.com/wiki/BuildInstructions#Linux) and it might as well be in martian - I got lost very early and would need much more guidance than the page provides. I've never done anything like that before...]

If you do not want to update your  os  and alpha21 on 14.04 you have to build it yourself without that suggested --with-system-mozjs38

option, then it runs.



I tried building this way in a PPA but it still fails:
