Installing on Ubuntu 8.04

Hello,
I'm trying to install the newest version of LOVE from source code in an "old" Ubuntu 8.04.
I would like to disable the sound in compile time, as I don't want to install libmpg123.
Is it possible?
Something like:
./configure --disable-sound
Or whatever...
Thanks,
Francisco

Re: [ANN] LuaGravity 0.5

With callbacks one must deal with inversion of control (no control of flow) and stack ripping (no locals). In the other hand, coroutines by themselves do not behave reactively---the programmer must explicitly call and resume them. Callbacks and coroutines are preconditions to a system such as LuaGra...

Re: [ANN] LuaGravity 0.5

LuaGravity is *not* deterministic (see http://www.lua.inf.puc-rio.br/luagravity/#section_determinism, there are other examples of non-determinism). Your reasoning is perfect, you cannot be sure about the value of `a`. Locking does not guarantee determinism, but only safe access to memory in critical...

Re: [ANN] LuaGravity 0.5

Concurrency (for me) is an abstract idea in which two things (processes, reactors, etc) happen at the same time and you (as an external viewer) cannot be sure about the exact order they execute. In *asynchronous* concurrency, which most languages follow, these things (processes, actors, etc) are by ...

[ANN] LuaGravity 0.5

I'm pleased to announce the release of LuaGravity 0.5. LuaGravity is a reactive language that implements the synchronous approach for concurrency. It is roughly based on Esterel and FrTime, two synchronous languages, the former having an imperative style, the latter being functional. LuaGravity is i...
