MaNGOSOne - Debian



Hey everyone

I wanted to start installing MangosOne on a fresh debian install. The MangosZero install is easy enough but on giving MangosOne a go, the instructions are to install Libace, quite early in the install process. I have no clue what to do here. I feel a little ashamed as the guide says "pretty straight-forward" but I have no clue what to do next ... Can someone dumb it down for me please. I feel like such an idiot ...

It may be just simple to compile the project yourself instead of following anything else explicitly.
I want the getmangos.sh script to take care of everything for Linux OSes at least, but I always hear it's in a state of repair.

More notes:

From the guide you link:
"You also need to grab and compile libace. You can get it from here. Extract it and read the instructions.They're pretty straight-forward. It should be named 'ACE-INSTALL.html' or something similar.


Maybe you can find a download from that link, but instead I looked through the GitHub repository:

Following deps I see acelite, and since it is bundled with the Mangos source code, I think it's important to use that version specifically.  That leads to this linked module repo and directory, where I did find that "ACE-INSTALL.html" file: https://github.com/mangos/mangosDeps/tree/1228d504656d73a3a7eaf1fe5e2b594c9e48a8a0/acelite

I think UNIX build instructions would make the most sense from that list, since it does not have "Linux", and GNU Make/Configure is pretty common for Linux packages.

I was hoping for an existing Ace(Lite) package in the Debian repos but did not see anything quickly from here: https://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=ace&searchon=names&suite=stable&section=all
Those usually have scripts that aid with compiling yourself automatically.
