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

Building FlightGear - Debian

22 bytes removed, 16:20, 11 November 2013
corrected link to fgdata
<u>2.12</u> only: Please have a look at the [http://www.flightgear.org/download/mirror/ mirror list] for a server close to your location.
wget http://mirrorswww.ibiblioflightgear.org/pub/mirrors/flightgear/ftpwo0t.de/Shared/FlightGear-data-2.12.0.tar.bz2bz tar xjf FlightGear-data-2.12.0.tar.bz2bz
<u>GIT</u> only:
For slow/unstable internet connections it is recommended to download the [[FlightGear_Git:_data_developers#Bundle|fgdata.bundle]] instead of cloning the data.<br />
git clone git://mapserver.flightgear.org/fgdata datafgdata
When all the builds are done and the data download has finished it is time for a test run:
$FG_INSTALL_DIR/bin/fgfs --fg-root=$FG_INSTALL_DIR/datafgdata
: The <code>fgfs</code> binary needs to find our self compiled libraries at runtime and therefore we have to tell the linker (ld) where to find them. That is what the first line here does. You might want to add this line to your <code>$HOME/.bashrc</code> to have this as a persistent setting (may cause problems, if one has installed more than one version of FlightGear!).
: Have in mind, the <code>$FG_INSTALL_DIR</code> and <code>$FG_SRC_DIR</code> variables are available for this session only. For future use of these lines, replace them by the real paths.
