I am running a Debian Buster Linux system. I have installed and played Boswars using the Debian package. I decided to try the source code.

Using the source downloaded (10 July 2020) with the link on https://www.boswars.org/development.shtml (svn ...) and running make.py starts compiling, but then gives a few errors:

 1) I got various errors as I did not have all the packages required ('subversion', 'liblua5.1-0-dev', 'mesa-common-dev' and 'libsdl1.2-dev' were added).

 2) I get an error "GL_GLEXT_VERSION redefined". This was defined in SDL/SDL_opengl.h and GL/glext.h. I found a post on the internet suggesting this was a problem with the SDL1 library, so I edited its SDL_opengl.h file and commented out the definition of GL_GLEXT_VERSION.

It would be useful to know which packages are required, and confirmation on using SDL or SDL2. The 'fix' that I applied may not be correct.
