Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

When building Next you may see build errors: Update whole section
==== When building Next you may see build errors ====
 Keeping in mind that this script compiles sometimes bleeding edge software versions, using latest Debian derived distributions, it can happen that the program that what was successfully compiling last week, today does notcompile anymore today. Building the stable version should always work , unless there is a problem with the script. That said, don't be too afraid of building the development version (called ''next''): this is the one developers use all the time, so kindly asking on the flightgear-devel [[Mailing_lists|mailing list]] in case a problem popped up<ref name="what-to-provide-when-asking-for-help">Don't forget in this case to precisely tell what you did and include the <tt>compilation_log.txt<BR/tt>file written by <tt>download_and_compile.sh</tt>.</ref> should allow you to find good advice and get the problem quickly fixed, if it's a new one. Conversely, probably not many people (in 2019) build themselves the “stable” version of FlightGear. People who want the stable version can usually have it from their distribution, this is generally easier. On the other hand, those running <tt>download_and_compile.sh</tt> typically want to build the latest code that FlightGear developers are working on; this is useful when you want to contribute feedback, code, aircraft or scenery based on recent technology, or just want to enjoy the latest features and bugs. ;-)
