Principia—Build Your Own

I thought there wasn't a MacOS build available... I keep an eye on the thread and github.

Wait, you have pre-built packages available somewhere? I could find no evidence of this in the original OP (the release names are links to Wikipedia articles and the github releases only have links to download the source code). I was trying to build it because I thought that was the only way.

... OK, finally found it. Might want to make that a bit more prominent.

There is a MacOS version build by lamont-granquist on github here.  His builds lag a few days behind ours but he is keeping up with the changes we make.

Well, the README file on github is a good starting point... :)

If you have to tell me that, then there's a problem with the forum thread. Please take my comments here as constructive feedback.

From the main thread:

I've been running through the Dockerfile, actually - just running the commands in a normal shell instead of letting Docker f uck up. I can get to the part where I make, but then.... I get a bunch of things telling me that they want things that are in a 'build' folder that doesn't exist. Changing 'BUILD_DIRECTORY :=' from 'build/' to './' gives a whole bunch of different things it claims doesn't exist, seemingly the same files that are actually there, but ending with '.d'. I'm starting to think that we don't have enough of the things for it to work properly.

Notice that I was talking about Vagrantfile, not Dockerfile.  We have not used the Dockerfile for 2 years, so it's probably awfully out of date.  Anyway, I just removed it as it was only causing confusion.

If you want to build on a Linux, you need to execute by hand all the commands in the Vagrantfile (from "echo Provisioning Principia" to the marker "SCRIPT".  Then you need to make sure that you have the KSP assemblies in a directory named "KSP Assemblies" next to the "principia" directory.

Don't go modifying the Makefile unless you really understand what it is doing (and what you are doing).

Ah, good point, fixing it now.

I Dled the Mac build, and there is no Principia.dll in there that I can find.

It appears as if it's not installed in testing. I'll have to work on this, it's on my most-wanted mods to install!

Principia isn't C# its C++ so it complies to a native shared library on Mac OSX and not a windows-style cross-platform dll.   On windows you do get a principia.dll but on Mac and Linux you get a principia.so (although technically on Mac you get a dylib which is incorrectly named principia.so instead of principia.dylib because of mono-related $REASONS).

GameData/Principia/ksp_plugin_adapter.dll.config documents which platform gets which kind of file and where it goes.

GameData/Principia/MacOS64/principia.so is where the shared library is on a Mac.

The thread OP has links to the binaries. Before it had links it explicitly stated that one was to ask in IRC. At no time was the process of obtaining an available build obfuscated.

If you were trying the prior one it had a bit of a concatenated gzipfile hot mess going on.

If you were downloading the windows build off of the main principia release page, then you need to download from there instead (note the URL is my fork and not the main page).

Oh, I DLed the latest release, then decided to check the first one. None had that :) . I have not DLed any windows version. Note that the the source zip and gz files for download (that version #2 you just linked) also do not contain that directory at all.

The thread OP is 5214 words long. The paragraph with the link is 391 words in. It has no visual hierarchy changes such as bold or a header to draw the eye when skimming such a very long post for the first thing most readers want to find. The link text is "here." There's a version history, but it has no links to the versions it references. There's a Github page with releases, but they only have source code links.

I'm not going to debate the definition of "obfuscated," since that's your word and not mine. The above are problems regardless of the wording you want to use to describe them.

the source zip isn't built, its just source, you need the principia_Darwin-2017062403-Cauchy-3-g07ff83f6dc739bda4e3d4950e4121466be5b8110.zip file

I had DLed that in another couple of builds and it was nothing more than a navball png (which I had no idea where to put), I didn't realize it was supposed to contain anything else as a result.

Woot!

Yeah, the other versions are fubar I guess. Works great... now I need to relearn everything about KSP (yay!).

Still doesn't actually work. Still complaining about the .d folders.

The .d files (not folders) are created automatically by make early in the construction and contain dependencies between the units.  Are you sure that you have write access to the directory/ies where you downloaded Principia?  I have seen problems with the .d files when I had forgotten to run sudo.

I always thought they were folders - Linux configuration folders are often 'config.conf.d'. Anyway, using sudo still complains about .d, but it then proceeds to make.

 

EDIT: and then it spits out 'ERROR 1' at the end. Progress is being made, but I still have a ways to go.
