Schwa & Howard have a croquet disto -> http://www.croquetcollaborative.org/
Take the following with a grain of salt:
Some of the issues have been resolved;
Some of my reactions were misguided.
How I fixed v0.1 to work under linux (Fedora Core 4; YMMV):
[NOTICE that v0.2 is now published]
- Download my version of this file ->
. Theirs had a wrong image name, and was DOS format --
Linux really doesn't like the ControlMs (Carriage Returns).
Actually, that script breaks when done-digit version numbers end the image filename,
unless you specify the image name yourself.
- Change this one method ->
(remove the .bin extension).
That masks around needing OpenAL to *work*.
You still need it to be loadable, it seems,
so that's what the next three items are about:
in the bin/i686* directory
- Make sure you have libopenal: [FedoraCore]
yum install openal
- Make a link in /usr/local/lib to libopenal without the .so number:
ln -s /usr/lib/libopenal.so.0 /usr/local/lib/libopenal.so
- chmod +x Croquet.sh bin/i686-pc-linux-gnu/*
- The instructions say to change the interactivity server hostname to
for testing your local system. That does not seem to work
for me. However leaving the default (
) does work for me, after a pause.
Be patient for a minute or so.
What was really wrong:
my box's "hostname" (according to the OS), looked up in /etc/hosts , did not match the IP address that
the box got from DHCP. Suggestion for running all on one node: set hostname to 'localhost'.
For running a server for other clients: make sure hostname, /etc/hosts, and ifconfig all agree.
I did that, before I learned how to update with Monticello.

click the item, and click <Open> at top right, and...
- In the new "Repository" window, for each
in the left column (if any), click on the item, and...
- In the right column, for each
above the underlined item, from the bottom one to the to one, click the item
and clock <Load> at the top.
