Subject: Quick Heads-up on installation
I recently compiled 1.3.8-test1, and it went swimmingly. However, there was one minor hitch: the file setup_linux.sh was non-existent. This is a problem for linux users, and should be rectified ASAP. The only fix was to transfer the file over from 1.3.7, but if you only have the new version, this will be an issue.

    Hmm, I had no issues here... weird. Btw. nothing has changed in this regard from 1.3.7. Did you install according the instructions (configure, make, make install, make datainstall?

    Edit: beware, the file gets generated during "make" if I remember correct, you cannot find it beforehand.

    Kind regards

          No problems here. The file is generated automatically.

            I did make, did not generate automatically. Something, somewhere, is a teensy bit wrong.

              Did you do the:
              # apt-get build-dep torcs

              Maybe something is missing that make needs?
