Anyone built Alex 4 for linux ? Wanting to play it but since I've jumped ship to linux I can't use the available build.

Why don't you build it yourself, since the source is available?

I think I did at some point, but I can't remember. It's been a while.

Fedora has a package for alex 4 in their main repo.

For ubuntu: there is an alex 4 package for hardy in my PPA: https://edge.launchpad.net/~martijn-vaniersel/+archive . I believe the upcoming intrepid has alex 4 in the main repo as well.

I installed alex4_1.00-0ubuntu2_i386.deb and got this.

alex4: symbol lookup error: /usr/local/lib/liballeg.so.4.2: undefined symbol: _blender_trans24

Unfortunately Debian Allegro packages don't respect the Allegro ABI, because we do something wrong with non-position independent code or something (I never understood it fully).

Indeed, that package works only if your allegro is from the repo as well.

However, you can download and compile from source package easily, something like this should work (untested)

# Add this line to your apt/sources.list:
deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/martijn-vaniersel/ubuntu hardy main
# then
apt-get source alex4
cd alex4-1.00
# this will create the deb package from source
debuild -b -us -uc
cd ..
sudo dpkg -i alex4*.deb
