Installation Fails
« on: September 18, 2011, 05:27:34 PM »
I tried installing Cogs from HIB3 (cogs-installer-build4) and after I set it to executable and try running I get the following:
Code: [Select]
bash: ./cogs-installer-build4: No such file or directory
What am I missing?

If you your visual finder to browse to the download folder, you should just be able to double-click the file to make it do the right thing.  If it's giving you trouble, you may need to make the file executable before you run it.

> chmod 777 cogs-installer-build4

I set it to executable, and nothing happens when double clicking on it. So I tried running it from term, and above is what happens.

Advice from Ryan Gordon, who created the Linux version...

This extremely unhelpful error usually means that there's a system library that couldn't be found by the dynamic loader (although it makes it look like it couldn't find the app itself).

The installer only links against three things:
libdl.so.2, libm.so.6, and libc.so.6...all of which are part of glibc, and your system just wouldn't boot without them.

My guess would be that you're on a 64-bit system and doesn't have 32-bit libraries installed...the game itself can be 64-bit, but the installer is always 32.

If you're on Ubuntu or Debian, you can try running "apt-get install ia32-libs"

If you gets desperate, the installer is just a self-extracting zip, so you could do:

    mkdir cogs
    cd cogs
    unzip ../cogs-installer-build4
    cd data
    ./Cogs

...and it'll run the 64-bit version of the game.

Should have thought to install ia32-libs. I just did a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 and forgot to install that package. Thanks.
