just spent all of last night compiling, ogre, openmw and all other things required.
and after i think about 8-9 hours(i compiled ogre like 20 times), i got an executable
for openmw. i am using Ubuntu 10.04 + kde.

and im on a high right now :D

all i have left to do is get all the assets for it to see if it will run.
I get a graphic configuration screen, and then it stops because it can't find morrowind BSA. :P

anyway, i look forward to running through the code and possibly help in someway with coding.
i have some (fairly minimalistic) experience with C# and Java and i wouldn't mind helping out with the UI and inventory stuff. :)

i have a decent experience with Linux(im no expert, but am comfortable with it).

cheers,
Hircine.

EDIT:

done and it loads the beshara cell and thats about it.

I've got the latest git revision to compile on Windows. Linking the executable fails because the precompiled boost libraries I downloaded are wrong.
