That’s how OALD7’s Successfully Installed on amd64!!

😀 Well.. . as crazy as if sounds .. . I finally managed to Break the Code! 😛

🙂

oops!
END IF;
// Yeah Some PL/SQL *HIT I’m into these days.  Sucks?

Anyway! Coming to the point. I looked for answers like almost everywhere and couldn’t really find even one…! Finally I went deep and mined some stuff, similar issues that the gamers were facing. Hail Loki.

ISSUES:
#1 (regular usage)

$ ./installation.sh
Verifying archive integrity… All good.
Uncompressing ……………………..
This installation doesn’t support glibc-2.1 on Linux / x86_64

#2 (using x86 emulation)

$ linux32 ./installation.sh
Verifying archive integrity… All good.
Uncompressing ……………………..
/home/nikunj/.setup5913: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn’t load ‘atal’
The setup program seems to have failed on x86/glibc-2.1

Both the times it said:
Please contact Loki Technical Support at support@lokigames.com
The program returned an error code (1).

Anyway. ‘linux32’ should’ve ideally worked but .. . . there was more.

WHAT I DID TO MAKE OALD7 run:

#1. To run 32-bit apps on 64-bit Linux, you first need to install these prerequisite packages:

$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk ia32-libs-sdl dpkg-dev


#2. Then I downloaded the i386 package from the Ubuntu site.
libGTK1.2: http://packages.ubuntu.com/jaunty/i386/libgtk1.2/download

#3. Deflate (Unzip/Un… hmm… Deb?) the libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_i386.deb (right-click and extract) and then go inside the folder hence created. Deflate data.tar.gz and go inside ./usr,

$ cd libgtk1.2_1.2.10-18.1build2_i386/usr/lib (in short)


#4. Now we need to copy the files (lib? Modules?) to the location where OALD7 desires to find it!

$ sudo cp -v -i * /usr/lib32

#5. Try installation now. [ERROR. still?]
(Even after that another library was required)

$ linux32 ./installation.sh

Verifying archive integrity… All good.
Uncompressing ……………………..
/home/nikunj/.setup6372: error while loading shared libraries: libgmodule-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Couldn’t load ‘atal’
The setup program seems to have failed on x86/glibc-2.1

#6. Then I downloaded two i386 packages for the Ubuntu site.


Follow the same procedure (#3-5) for libglib1.2ldbl_1.2.10-19build1_i386.deb

😀 and voilà .. . 😛 this is what you get! Don’t kill me 😛

Looks Kinda…  hmm….Nude!!

I don’t know why but just couldn’t see any TEXT 😐 I closed my eyes, trusted my senses and from the last time I installed it without this ‘Chick Chick’. Pushing the third Check-Box would save all the Sounds etc and makes it offline! 🙂 DO THAT.

Finally 😀 ….. Legen — wait for it —- Dary!!!

Update:
OALD8 installation is like so easy. Works Great! But I like the UI of v7 better! 🙂

OALD8 looks Light W8! (Rhyme?)

Update (2012-09-19):

For OALD8 on Ubuntu 12.04 Amd64

#1 Dependencies

$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk ia32-libs-sdl dpkg-dev

#2 Mount the ISO/CD

using Furious ISO Mount Tool, etc!

#3 Begin Installation

Go to the mount directory

$ cd linux

$ linux32 ./setup.sh

Tweaks:

#1

No Sound?

Try padsp – PulseAudio OSS Wrapper:

padsp starts the specified program and redirects its access to OSS compatible audio devices (/dev/dsp and auxiliary devices) to a PulseAudio sound server.

$ padsp path-to-the-oald8

eg:

$ padsp ‘/home/nikunj/oald8/oald8’

#2

Create a Shell-Script on the Desktop

#!/bin/sh

padsp ‘/home/nikunj/oald8/oald8’

Make it executable. Also, optionally set the ICON from: /home/nikunj/oald8/chrome/icons/default/main-window.xpm

#3 (adjust)

Annoying Dialog: Click OK to download Plugin

Click Cancel. Yeah! Adjust! 😛

 
Update (2012-09-20)

Just copied and pasted it to my brand new Linux Mint.

It didn’t work by default.

/run-oald8.sh: 166: ./run-oald8.sh: ./oald8-bin: not found

So all I had to do was install the libraries.

$ sudo apt-get install ia32-libs ia32-libs-gtk ia32-libs-sdl dpkg-dev

Where have I been.. . .?

alright…!! Well … Oops .. this is my Techn-Blog.. not the usual . .ME-*hit! . .. which I post at mrdigerati.blogspot.com

Nonetheless we’ll turn this thing .. surely embracing technology towards the end.

🙂 Well these past couple of days I’ve not been really… spending much time with my PC, was reading etc.

I’ve read Love Story recently. 😛 Yeah I know it sucks and didn’t come up to the HYPE . .. but I liked the way they communicated ..  Jenny and Ollie .. that was good. I didn’t really liked the part where he was talking about her illness and impending death. I personally felt that could’ve been more Intense… but funny. Anyway… after like a lot of time .. .by ‘lot’ I really mean a LOT… I finished a book. Lets for just a minute ignore the fact that it was hardly a 100 pages and smallest possible size a novel could be so that I can have my Victory Laugh!! [okay … I’ve heard we can attach music and videos with the post but not for this cause] ….! I’m now reading A Brief History Of Time. I know I don’t have to mention the author’s name. The book came out when I was like in my Diapers..! 😉 Physics really amazes me sometimes. Have you seen FlashForward? Such a loss .. it got cancelled. Mathematics, Quantum Physics and what not. Hey then there is Numb3rs. Another ‘marvel’…! Talking of which “Spider Man 4” is going to come in 2012 and its going to be a REBOOT… (go wiki … not a sequel. .remake or a prequel). Hehe! I’ve digressed enough for the paragraph I guess. Hello??

Meanwhile, in the college I used to read a lot of RSS Feeds. Akregator was in!! .. .openSUSE I liked. Now in my Awesome Ubuntu 10.04, I have Liferea (Linux Feed Reader). Its simple its strong. Its nice.

RSS makes your life simple. Even when I didn’t have access to internet, I could read the news feeds offline. The updates are made in a fashion that network resources be used intelligently.  Good thing.

Interesting Thing of the Day & Techcrunch are my top Favorites.

The Linux Feed Reader - RSS 🙂

Ciao.
