I have bought CTP2 on GOG.com today, wanting to install on Linux.
Everything compiled without problems. To install the data files I adapted the instructions on README.linux, basically copying everything from the GOG Windows Install (installed with wine) and making the required changes.
It starts well, but when I try to run, I get a "Please make sure the Call to Power 2 CD-ROM is in your CD-ROM drive" error.
According to this thread the new version disabled the CD-ROM check, but apparently not in the linux branch.
Could the patch from trunk be applied in the linux branch? I could give it a try, even if it is necessary to make small modifications, but I don't know where to start...
Any help is appreciated.
P.S.: Instead of creating a FAT partition as recommended by README.linux, I used ciopfs. It seems much cleaner as it does exactly what is needed: mount a directory in a case insensitive fashion. Seems to work well.
P.P.S.: Another problem that I had is that the intro movie don't show. I'm not sure if this is related. I'm almost sure that while running ./configure I had some complaint about SDL_ffmpeg, even tough I think it's installed...
