Title: teacher fails
Post by: ichnaton on October 05, 2016, 03:26:06 pm
Hi
I'm an IT teacher (that does not mean God) and I have a class of kids (12-13y) who want to learn to code. Thanks to the supertux IRC I got to find Unknown Horizons and this project. The idea is that the kids will learn python by hacking on an actual game.

Currently got stuck, because fifechan does not build on this linux mint box at the moment, so, well take another breath then. Should I submit a report somewhere or is this a known issue ?

Code: [Select]
barry@MintBook ~/Code/fifechan $ cmake  .
<..>
== Building FIFECHAN version 0.1.2 using build type ''.
--     Source directory is '/home/barry/Code/fifechan'.
--     Build  directory is '/home/barry/Code/fifechan'.
--     Installation path is '/usr/local' (set -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=<path> to change).

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:75 (message):
  #Please build outside of the source tree!

                         
                         Make a separate folder for building and run CMake there:

 

                         mkdir _build; cd _build; cmake ..

 

                         Before that, cleanup:

  rm -rf CMakeCache.txt CMakeFiles


-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

Excute this commands in the fifechan folder before build: mkdir _build; cd _build; cmake ..

I wrote updated installation manuals in Dutch (which is easy for the German neighbors) with newly refreshed commands for Linux Mint 18 at
