Update 26/03/2012:
Step 3 is no longer required as the port as a specific dependency on linux-f10-xorg-libs.
Update 25/05/2012:
Ever since EvenBalance stopped supporting Enemy Territory step 5 should be ignored. Please refer to HowTo: Get etkey and Punbuster files on Enemy Territory.
________________________________________________________________________

Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is a free multiplayer FPS that takes place in the World World II pitting two teams (Allies and Axis) against each other for victory.

The game was originally going to be a retail expansion pack for Return To Castle Wolfenstein but the project was canceled, Activision however decided to release it during 2003 for free.

In this post I'll detail the steps required to install and update Enemy Territory, the ET Pro mod, PunkBuster and XQF on FreeBSD.

1) Install and update Enemy Territory

Become the superuser:

Code:
% su
And install the required port:

Code:
# cd /usr/ports/games/linux-enemyterritory
# make install clean
This will pull Enemy Territory's installer from the web. If any port options pop up stick with the defaults and choose OK to continue.

If you don't have the Linux Compatibility Environment proceed to step 2, otherwise jump to step 3.

2) Enable the Linux Compatibility Environment

Enemy Territory needs both FreeBSD's Linux kernel module and near-minimal installation of a Linux distribution. By default, FreeBSD 7.x uses Fedora Core Linux 4.

The games/linux-enemyterritory pulls in emulators/linux_base-fc4 so we just need to load the Linux kernel module at boot time. To do so run:

Code:
# echo 'linux_enable="YES"' >> /etc/rc.conf
3) Fixing library issues

It was verified that at times library issue crop up upon starting the game.

To check if you have a library issue run:

Code:
# ldd /usr/local/lib/enemyterritory/et.x86
If the output is:

Code:
# ldd /usr/local/lib/enemyterritory/et.x86
/usr/local/lib/enemyterritory/et.x86:
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x281e4000)
        libX11.so.6 => not found
        libXext.so.6 => not found
        libm.so.6 => /lib/obsolete/linuxthreads/libm.so.6 (0x281e9000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/obsolete/linuxthreads/libc.so.6 (0x2820f000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x281c7000)
You have library issues and need to install x11/linux-xorg-libs:

Code:
# cd /usr/ports/x11/linux-xorg-libs ; make install clean
Re-run [cmd=]ldd[/cmd] and you should have the following output:

Code:
# ldd /usr/local/lib/enemyterritory/et.x86
/usr/local/lib/enemyterritory/et.x86:
        libdl.so.2 => /lib/libdl.so.2 (0x281e6000)
        libX11.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libX11.so.6 (0x281eb000)
        libXext.so.6 => /usr/X11R6/lib/libXext.so.6 (0x282be000)
        libm.so.6 => /lib/obsolete/linuxthreads/libm.so.6 (0x282cd000)
        libc.so.6 => /lib/obsolete/linuxthreads/libc.so.6 (0x282f3000)
        /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x281c7000)
4) Install the ET Pro mod

Next let's install Enemy Territory's best mod: ET Pro.

Code:
# cd /usr/ports/games/linux-enemyterritory-etpro
# make install clean
Now ET Pro will show under the Mods options in the games' main menu.

5) Update PunkBuster

Now start the game, create a player profile and quit. By doing so a .etwolf directory will be created in your home directory which includes a folder containing PunkBuster.

Point to http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php scroll down and follow the Linux download to download PunkBuster update application.

Change directory to where you've downloaded the pbsetup.run and:

Code:
# su
# chmod +x pbsetup.run
# exit
% cp pbsetup.run ~/.etwolf/pb
% ./pbsetup.run
PunkBuster will ask to fetch updates and prompt for a License Agreement. Afterwards point to "Add a Game option", choose Enemy Territory and its installation path.

On the main PunkBuster window click on Enemy Territory to select it and press "Check for Updates". Quit PunkBuster after updating it.

6) Install XQF

One can use the in game browser to search for server. However I recommend installing and using the XQF Game Server Browser as it a lot more flexible and complete:

Code:
# cd /usr/ports/games/xqf
# make install clean
XQF should identify the installed Enemy Territory so select the game and press "Update" to have XQF pull an updated server list.

7) Fix sound issues

ET uses Linux's OSS sound infrastructure so you might come across issues. Here's how to enable sound on Enemy Territory under FreeBSD 7.x:

Code:
% su
# sysctl hw.snd.compat_linux_mmap=1
# echo "hw.snd.compat_linux_mmap=1" >> /etc/sysctl.conf
# exit
With the above commands sound will be enabled immediately and also at boot time.

And we're done!

Can anyone tell me why when I try to launch et I get the following error?

Code:
 et
./et.x86: error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
I love the writeup! I just cant seem to get past this error. I am running FreeBSD 7.2-RELEASE

What is the brand of your gpu?
If nvidia, are you using a linux_base different than fc4 and/or compat.linux.osrelease > than 2.4.2?

I've also ran into this issue once. At the time I rebuild all my ports through # portmaster -af and didn't pin point the exact source of the issue.

Mind you that I use linux_base-fc4.

@ neurosis

Run the same commands and post the results.

Of course it is (else I wouldn't post the HOWTO).

I did say that I once ran into the same problem and that I've since fixed it. At the time I fixed it by running # portmaster -af (yeah... I killed the fly with a cannon) and ET is running ever since.

The commands I've posted should help neurosis troubleshooting ;).

Gosh, sorry!
I got confused twice. Probably I'm doing too many things together.

Do you have Load "glx" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, in the Section "Module" part?
What is the brand of your gpu?
What is the output of glxinfo | grep vendor and glxinfo | grep render ?

I have the glx line in my xorg.conf

My gpu is nvidia. I am running the nvidia drivers "i believe" not sure how to make sure but I have the line
Driver "nvidia"

in my xorg.conf as well. There is no splash screen as I am used to seeing however.

I have no command glxinfo.. I get command now found.

Can you try starting X with $ startx -- -logverbose 6 and add as attachment /var/log/Xorg.0.log ?

This could be a problem:
Code:
(II) LoadModule: "glx"
(II) Loading /usr/local/lib/xorg/modules/extensions//libglx.so
(II) Module glx: vendor="X.Org Foundation"
        compiled for 1.6.1, module version = 1.0.0
        ABI class: X.Org Server Extension, version 2.0
(==) AIGLX disabled
If you installed the nvidia driver, the vendor should be NVIDIA.
In fact you have an error about that.

Maybe your driver is not correctly installed and/or your xorg.conf is not configured correctly.
I'd try removing the driver with kldunload nvidia && pkg_delete -ix nvidia-driver and reinstalling again with cd /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver && make install clean && kldload nvidia.

Then read
/usr/local/share/doc/NVIDIA_GLX-1.0/html/chapter-04-section-02.html
to check is xorg.conf is configured correctly or install and run x11/nvidia-xconfig.

I installed the nvidia driver from nvidia's site. Is it as simple to remove? Ive tried to remove it in the past with no luck unfortunately as I dont believe it comes with an uninstall option.

This is IMHO, one of the reasons why the port should be used.
If you want to remove it, try looking at [thread=2171]this thread[/thread].
Maybe another option could be reinstalling the same version again.

@tangram
sorry for polluting you howto with posts about xorg and driver configuration, hopefully a moderator could help moving them to a new thread

yes.. very sorry as well. maybe if someone has this issue they can find it useful.

(I figured this part out ;))

Can we move this conversation somewhere else? Maybe to that other thread?

No problem. We just need to solve this issue. It also happened to me a few months ago, now to neurosis and on the PC-BSD forum there are some posts stating the same kind of problems.

But yeah... hopefully a moderator can move slice and dice this thread ;).

@neurosis
That crash on ET as it starts up is most likely due to graphic drivers not being well installed. Try to deinstall NVIDIA's drivers and reinstall. There's an HOWTO on this forum subsection.

I've just installed a fresh copy of FreeBSD with the X distribution to simulate the problem.

I've started with # pkg_add -r linux-enemyterritory, enabled Linux compatibility layer and ran # ldd /usr/local/lib/enemyterritory/et.x86 which gave me the same results as neurosis.

A simple # pkg_add -r linux-xorg-libs fixed the library problem.

Thanks tangram and ale! I Was able to get it working! I found that I did have a very bad Nvidia driver install and they were not working properly. The driver was difficult to get rid of but is working now.

Tangram, I found the same. Once I installed the linux-xorg-libs the issue of the missing library went away. Maybe that should be added to the HOWTO. :) Ive installed ET in past versions of FreeBSD and did not have this same issue. I am not sure what has changed.

Thanks again. Too bad we cant get a moderator to clean the fat out of this thread now. Sorry for making a mess in here.
