Running on Debian "Squeeze" (Linux) :: Jul 28, 2012 @ 6:39am

I cant seem to get this game work in it. this is what i type in terminal

root@****:/****/****/gfusion# ./run_me

basically './run_me'

This is what it gives me

./sdlapp: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL_image-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Now i've installed libsdl-image1.2, libsdl-mixer1.2 & libstdc++6-4.4-dev

I still get the same error. Any ideas?

(I can't tell if you are asking in general or this case specifically. (I'm confused because your main OS is apparently linux...) Assuming it was a general question. Ignore if this is obvious)

You don't really want to be root very much. The idea is to be root only when you absolutely need it and then drop back to the normal user. Using root when it's not needed eliminates most of the advantages of having a root account in the first place.

( http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=842738 says mostly the same thing)

i asked in this particular case (not being root to play galcon), so asked why? but i know it's adviced to only use the admin account to do tasks that requires it, and to use the pass when prompted for privileges. thx anyways marky.

That's all he meant. Galcon doesn't represent any particular threat as root.

True !

I didnt mean "dont run galcon as root", but "dont run anything as root (unless you really need to)".

It's cool how it even runs under TinyCore linux without many packages installed (basically all you need is a GPU package)
