I am trying to compile freedoom 0.6.4 on a debian based distribution...

I tried the "make" command, and I think that the job is done....

so... how can I start up the game?

I tried ./freedoom and nothing happend... am I missing something?

sudo apt-get install prboom

Freedoom is not an engine, it's a collection of data files that run in a Doom engine port (actually, a Doom port based off Boom)

Also, the compiled IWADs will appear under the wads/ directory, if everything went properly.

Or, the easy way: Freedoom 0.6.4 is in Debian testing and unstable repositories. It's only a WAD file, so there isn't any worry about installing the package on other distributions.
http://packages.debian.org/squeeze/freedoom

I've downloaded the 11mb file from here:
http://download.savannah.gnu.org/re...reedoom/source/

I checked out the wads directory and in there is some files like:
doom1.wad, doom2.wad, freedoom_textures.wad, freedoom.wad and etc..

What should I do now?

doom.wad and doom2.wad are the important full iwads. The rest are specialty wads.

There are tons of ways to use them. Easiest would be to put both iwads into /usr/local/share/games/doom/

freedoom.wad is not an IWAD. You want doom2.wad.

Some distros dont agree.

But with a compiled repo, doom2.wad or doom.wad is definitely the right choice.
