gcc-g++ package needed

I had to install one additional package in order to get SuperTux to compile -- the MinGW gcc-g++ package for compiling C++ code, found [hxxp://prdownloads.sf.net/mingw/gcc-g++-3.4.2-20040916-1.tar.gz?download here]. - Sik0fewl

libcurl missing?

When I want to compile SuperTux on windows xp, i get an error because the sourcefile addon_manager.cpp needs LIBCURL... but i don't know where i can find the right LIBCURL-package for windows and how to install it (with MSYS ...) please update this page.. - TowelieDasTuch

By the way - libcurl shouldn't be needed to compile SuperTux. You can safely remove the check for libcurl from the autoconf scripts (just go back a few SVN revisions) and SuperTux should build just fine. Send us a patch if you can change the autoconf scripts to make it truly optional. --Sommer 21:37, 29 January 2007 (UTC)

DLLs needed

SuperTux seems to run fine with only the following DLLs in place

  • libogg-0.dll
  • libphysfs-1-0-0.dll
  • SDL.dll
  • SDL_image.dll

Further investigation necessary
