    The problem is distributing the thing, it depends on alot of
    libary code, so just the executable probably wont work for
    most people.

    Why don't you just make Redhat/Debian (etc.) packages?
    Just add requirements and wa-la; Everyone can play. ;-)

    I don't really know to make redhat/debian packages. :)

    Then learn. I'm sure that there are many sites that tell you
    how to make them.

    Ouch, harsh. If you want this so badly, Lucas, submit
    patches yourself. Sphere is an unfunded project, and the
    developers work on it in their spare time. You can't make
    them do anything.

    It was only a suggestion, I know that there are some people
    out there with don't use Sphere as it's not Linux compatible.

    You don't need to make this high priority but it is worth noting.

    Sphere is Linux compatible.
    engine and wxeditor both work.

    Regarding making packages, every spec file I've seen so far
    goes on having the sources in a tar.gz file, where with sphere
    it's more likely that there should be a binary package with the
    revelant libraries (there's alot -_-)

    I could upload binaries and you could try to run them (and
    then tell me what libraries you need...)

    It's not much, but it's a start. tar'ed and gzip'ed with everything you need to run.

    The problem with wrapping Sphere up in a package is that everything it depends on also has to be in a package AND available in a repository. But this problem only really applies to Corona and Audiere, so packaging Sphere is still a possibility in the future.
