How to compile this Blake Stone source port?

Recommended Posts

There is a source port for "Blake Stone: Planet Strike", but I lack knowledge to compile it. The source is here:


There are no official instructions except for requirements (CMake and SDL v2 or higher). When I enter the source folder and type "make" I get an error saying that there is no makefile present. There is a file called "Makefile.pandora", but apparently that's not what the compiler is looking for.

I use Linux Mint 17.

Does anyone know the solution and can share the knowledge?

There is a CMakeList.txt in the sources, so I assume you have to run cmake before.

I ran cmake and received the following error:

-- Could NOT find Threads (missing:  Threads_FOUND) 
CMake Error at /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:108 (message):
  Could NOT find SDL: Found unsuitable version "1.2.15", but required is at
  least "2" (found
Call Stack (most recent call first):

  /usr/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/FindSDL.cmake:176 (FIND_PACKAGE_HANDLE_STANDARD_ARGS)
  CMakeLists.txt:4 (find_package)

-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!
I tried installing SDL 2 by issuing the following command:

sudo apt-get install libsdl2-dev

But after the installation and a reboot nothing has changed - I still get the same error.
