When you download the source and extract it there is a README.txt file, and that should tell you what you need and how to get it if I'm not mistaken. Happy compiling :)

I am no help with Windows as we haven't owned it for years. But this link seems to do a good job outlining what the steps are. http://dev.minetest.net/Compiling_Minet ... on_Windows

And that's why most of us run Linux. It's a lot easier to compile it (for Linux or Windows) from there. It might even be worthwhile to set up a Linux VM and use the buildbot instead of compiling on Windows.

Looks like the replies didn't answer your question, so I'll do this now.
The wiki page tells you what libraries you need in addition to the Visual Studio and CMake.
I compiled some libraries with MSVC 2010. You can use them to compile your game but I don't know if they work for 64-bit builds, so try the 32-bit first to make sure it works.

Un7zip the archive into your working directory and fill in the paths into cmake-gui like the dev wiki article says. To make sure you have selected the right file name, you can look at my setup here.

When you compiled the stuff, create a new directory where you can copypaste all the dll files and Minetest directories in.

azekill_DIABLO,

If you use Windows, then Microsoft Community Visual studio should work fine. Mac, I'm not sure, and from what I have seen here, you don't use Linux.

I don't even know if you even use this any more, but I'm just sayin.

On the bright side, You can use the most shiny Windows compiler there is 8D

I would like to approach the question from the other way..

Of those of you who use Linux, what distribution do you or others use to compile it with?

Ubuntu doesn't want to play along, and I'm not surprised considering Ubuntu installs with nearly everything missing by default. Ubuntu doesn't even install make (let along cmake) by default and it's all uphill after that. I've managed to get it to be a decent LAMP server but the writings on the wall, I should be using something else...

I use Linux Mint, there is really no reason why Ubuntu shouldn't work, just follow these instructions.

I record Minetest videos, Mod reviews, Modding tutorials, and Lets plays.

...it dies at installing the dependencies. Don't know why this Ubuntu is FUBAR, but it just is. Oh well.
Code: Select all
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree       
Reading state information... Done
Note, selecting 'libcurl4-openssl-dev' instead of 'libcurl3-dev'
Package libpng12-dev is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source

E: Package 'libpng12-dev' has no installation candidate


I see garbage like that a lot with this install and I'm 99% sure its Ubuntu's GUI garbage conflicting with the way apt normally handles things. It has a very annoying graphic update thing that pops up at the worst of times.

I don't have a lot of experience with these kinds of problems, but you could try "sudo apt-get update", "sudo apt-get upgrade", and then "sudo apt-get install -f". If it still doesn't work, try restarting the computer. If it still doesn't work then, paste your errors here again. Sorry I'm not much help. :P

Although it may seem like it, I doubt a lot of this is actually Ubuntu's fault and could easily be fixed

Before doing any other apt or apt-get commands, you should fix any broken packages with the following command (also mentioned in another post):
Code: Select all
sudo apt install -f


Why do you want to spend time compiling Minetest when you can install the latest version with a few commands? You can nicely install and upgrade Minetest without compiling by either using the official PPA or my snap.

To install via the PPA:

Code: Select all
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:minetestdevs/stable && sudo apt update && sudo apt install minetest -y


To install my snap:

Stable (currently 0.4):
Code: Select all
sudo snap install minetest-luk3yx


Recent development (currently 5.0) builds:
Code: Select all
sudo snap install minetest-luk3yx-dev


If that doesn't work, you can always blame Ubuntu and go posting on the forums about how bad Ubuntu is.

HI Guys

This is the first time I can contribute to something in this amazing project.

There is a nice trick to easy compile in any Debian-derivative distro, I'll put every command with a short explanation,

1-Update package list, if you don't do this you could get error like "package XXXX could not be installed" because you have the filename of an old packave. The -y option say "yes" to every question automatically.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update -y

2-Install most of the dependencies
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get build-dep minetest

The "build-dep" command instruct to apt to get every package needed to compile a given package, you need the source repos for run this command, in general they are active by default, the only exception I know is Deepin OS, you need to activate by hand on it.
3-Additional dependencies (optionals)
3.1-Luajit
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libluajit* luajit

3.2-Ncurse for "minetestserver --terminal" support
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libncurses5 libncurses5-dev libncursesw5 libncursesw5-dev

3.3- Ccmake -> this is not a compile dependencies but is a nice addon to switch the cmake options with a ncurse based UI.
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install cmake-curses-gui

3.4 - git
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install git

4- Get the source code (this is extracted from the github Readme), you will get the 0.5-dev source code.
Code: Select all
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/minetest/minetest.git
cd minetest
git clone --depth 1 https://github.com/minetest/minetest_game.git games/minetest_game

4.1 (Optional) if you want the to compile the 0.4.17.1 (or any other), you need to do this, you need to run this command twice, the first in the minetest directory and the second in the game/minetest_game directory
Code: Select all
git fetch --tags
git checkout tags/0.4.17.1


From here you can follow the with on github.

I hope this help somebody.

Best Regards
Trungus

Yeah that's what I'm used to for other debian stuff. Turns out that confuses ubuntu's graphic based update system, which needed to catch up. It's compiling now. With lots of interesting warnings, like:

Code: Select all
/home/zaphraud/Games/minetest-master/lib/lua/src/ltablib.c: In function ‘addfield’:
/home/zaphraud/Games/minetest-master/lib/lua/src/ltablib.c:137:3: warning: this ‘if’ clause does not guard... [-Wmisleading-indentation]
   if (!lua_isstring(L, -1))
   ^~
/home/zaphraud/Games/minetest-master/lib/lua/src/ltablib.c:140:5: note: ...this statement, but the latter is misleadingly indented as if it were guarded by the ‘if’
     luaL_addvalue(b);


There's more than one warning about a botched if statement in there.. g++ wasn't that helpful before. Heh.

43% and still chugging thru it... compiling on a celeron laptop. But hey it runs for twelve hours and doesn't make any fan noise and is smol. Just not a very fast compiler.
45% now...

There are indeed warnings when compiling MT, this is normal, however there aren't (or at least shouldn't) be any errors.

Ubuntu's "graphics based update system" uses apt (or an apt library) internally, it should never "lag behind" what you see in the terminal.

If they aren't bugs, then the code isn't using proper indenting. That's essentially what its complaining about. Which is kind of lol, like its a professor or something.
