Fedora yum repo for OpenMW now available

Post by artorius » 12 Mar 2012, 21:35

Updated for OpenMW 0.13.0

If you currently have openmw installed from the previous repo, just remove it with:

Code: Select all

yum remove openmw
There are now both 32 and 64 bit RPM files available for Fedora.

First, make sure that you have the RPMFusion repository available on your system (you will need this for the libmpg123 and Cg dependencies). Follow the instructions here http://rpmfusion.org/Configuration/ on getting that set up for yourself.

Next, download the openmw-repo RPM to set up the OpenMW Fedora Yum repository on your system:

Code: Select all

yum localinstall http://artorius.us/projects/openmw/builds/fedora/16/noarch/openmw-f16-repo-1.0-1.fc16.noarch.rpm
Once you have both of these repos set up, just run:

Code: Select all

yum install openmw
to get just the engine, or

Code: Select all

yum install openmw-launcher
to get the graphical launcher along with the engine.

Thanks to lgro for providing the space to host the repository, and of course to the whole OpenMW team for bringing back to life one of the best games ever!

27 Mar 2012: Edited to include new instructions.

Nice job artorius!

I would like to add that paths with spaces must be encapsulated in quotes.

For example:

Code: Select all

data="/home/username/Morrowind/Data Files"

Also, the resources line should not be needed in the user cfg file since it is already set in the global cfg file.
