Linux support

Apr 28, 2010 by DX-MON
Good news on the Linux support front: libAudio now works on Linux, both libAudio and libImage have had their compilation stages cleaned up, fixing a few bugs and generally improving the code-quality of the libraries.

The server for the in-game chat system is now stable and has had it's Linux dæmon mode built. I have had the server running on a test Linux box for over a week without crashes now, and memory usage has decreased since when it was a console application. No memory leaks found, so I think it's safe to say that the server is now at release quality/level.

As a final item: bugs have been filed about the issues with glGenericWindow and odd behaviours arising from the second main loop that starts and handling quits, etc, and I have a feeling they affect Windows too (though due to the generally more buggy code running in the OS itself, it's more difficult to fix and far more difficult to work out if I'm actually seeing a bug in my code when running the multi-level looping code on Windows.)

Signing off for the moment with loads more Linux-based stuff working and fully fixed,
