Building Einstein on Linux Systems
Einstein currently only runs correctly on 32-bit platforms. So you need to build a 32-bit binary. This is a problem in 2018, because most systems are now 64-bit native. Until all of the code is updated, you will need to install some 32-bit native development and shared libraries on your system. They will be part of the "i386" or "i686" architecture, depending on your distribution.
- libc and libstdc++
- libX11 and libXau
- Sound libraries, depending on your target:
Once you have installed 32-bit libraries from your distribution,
to be able to tell the compiler to build 32-bit objects, as well as search for
and link against those 32-bit libraries. This is done by telling
build Einstein as if we were cross-compiling for another platform - which we
are, in a way.
Stop typing and tell me what to do!
- Check out the Einstein repository to a location, we'll call it
./build.sh && make install
If all goes well, an
einstein program will end up in
If you want a debug build - because you like running emulators slower, or
you like cryptic debugging logs, or you are an Einstein developer - pass the
debug argument to
build.sh. This will end up in
