Building Chocolate Doom on Fedora
The following are instructions for building Chocolate Doom under Fedora Linux; they may also work on distributions derived from Fedora, but this has not been tested.
The first step is to install the necessary dependencies for building Chocolate Doom. The easiest way to do this is to use the yum package manager. Run this command as root:
yum install SDL-devel SDL_mixer-devel SDL_net-devel gcc make python-imaging
Several packages will be installed.
Download the source package from the Downloads page. Extract the package: for example,
tar xzf chocolate-doom-2.0.0.tar.gz
Then build the package:
cd chocolate-doom-2.0.0 ./configure make make install
The final "make install" command should be run as root.
