I just saw your promising project and wants to give it a try. However, I was not able to manage to compile this game on fedora core 5. Configure complains about missing the lua dependencies, however lua should be installed on my system.
checking for lua_open in -llua50... no
checking for lua_open in -llua... no
Could not find the lua library. Check that it is properly installed on your system
rpm -qa | grep lua
ls -la /usr/lib/liblua*
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 195824 3. Okt 18:39 /usr/lib/liblua5.1.a
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 168736 8. Jun 04:32 /usr/lib/liblua-5.1.so
-rwxrwxr-x 1 root root 155199 3. Okt 18:39 /usr/lib/liblua5.1.so
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 238132 8. Jun 04:31 /usr/lib/liblua.a
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 13 3. Okt 18:45 /usr/lib/liblua.so -> liblua-5.1.so
I am even able to use the "lua" interpret. So anyone with an good idea, why configure is not able to detect the lua dependency?
