Stella Upgrade To Newest Version

Tue Feb 20, 2018 2:04 pm

I found a Atari 2600 homebrew game I had to play. But, the Stella in Solus was at version 4.7.3. To be able to play Draconian the Atari 2600 homebrew game. I needed Stella 5.0.2 or better. The newest stable version of Stella is 5.1. So I download the source, extract it. Before compiling. You need one thing, at least I did. That was a package call sdl2-devel. So get that before running the commands. Which are

./configure
make
sudo make install

This will not rewrite over the older Stella version. To run the newest version of Stella. Just go to the file Stella where you compile this at. And run this command at that location.

./stella

Now enjoy the game Draconian

If you want to know where to download Draconian. Go here.

So far no bugs or anything to report bad. So this should get release soon.

I just live the moment. I don't wait, I do. But, this is good to know for others. That aren't comfortable compiling from source.

Keep up the good work.
