[SOLVED] Minetest Server Version 0.4.13?

by octacian » Post

I am currently running a Minetest Server on version 0.4.12, and would like to update it to 0.4.13. However, I cannot seem to find anywhere to download the newer version as my package manager (apt-get) still does not have it.

Thanks.

You can compile Minetest from sources. See the GitHub project for instructions.

You can also try this, it can be used on servers as well: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=3837

So the

Code: Select all

minetestserver
command is part of Minetest itself? I thought it was a separate package meaning I would need to download and compile it too.

Thanks Calinou. That worked for my computer, now for the server though. I didn't realize I was missing so much by running 0.4.12! Only problem I had was Minetest didn't recognize I game I had created called testing_game for testing mods. I assume Minetest still uses /usr/share/games/minetest? It showed up that it did in the install log anyway, so I guess I'll just recreate my testing_game.

Thanks again!

I did this on my server, but it didn't seem to update. I will try purging old minetest (v0.4.12) and running your script again.

Upon purging and running your script after removing .minetest and .../games/minetest I cannot run minetestserver. Ideas?

Thx for your help!

Run minetest --server

It does the same thing.

BUILD_SERVER is off by default in the CMake configuration for some reason. Try turning it on and compiling again.

Figured it out. Just used Calinou's one line installation script than ran minetest --server then added all my normal arguments. Thanks.
