Errors when trying to connect to multiplayer on ubuntu 11.04

Postby CRU143 » Thu Jun 23, 2011 7:55 pm

when i run:
fgfs --callsign=CRU143 --multiplay=in,10,192.168.15.100,5000 --multiplay=out,10,mpserver05.flightgear.org,500 --airport=KSFO --aircraft=A380

i get:

Cannot connect to server socket err = No such file or directory

But when flightgear starts, the Network option in the menubar is not ghosted out. I can't receive or send any data.

Multiplayer doesnt work... Any way to fix this?

Shouldn't both multiplayer in and multiplayer out be on the same port; default seems to be 5000.

That 'callsign' message looks like a problem I saw, the multiplayer message symptom is the same. Thorsten posted a patch at the end of this thread ( it requires a re - compile ) or you can get the same fix by doing a rebuild with optimisation switched off.

No bother ! I think someone else saw the same issue when moving to a newer Ubuntu, the root cause is between some code in Simgear and whatever version if the gcc compiler is in use. Did you install FlightGear as a pre-built package or did you build from source, using the .configure .. make commands ? If you did .configure and make, then
the proper commands are in the thread I mentioned. Otherwise, tell where you got the package and hopefully someone can tell us how to get an update.
