hi i was tring to install FreeOrion on fedora afte reading the article on the subject but the problem here is not FreeOrion installation spicificlly its that a problem accurs every time i try to install aprogramm or a pachage using the terminal. Now

First i ran

sudo dnf install python-devel cmake libvorbis-devel boost-devel zlib-static freetype-devel mesa-libGL-devel mesa-libGLU-devel SDL2-devel glew-devel openal-soft-devel
sudo dnf groupinstall "C Development Tools and Libraries"

it ran smoothly

then i ran

git clone


mkdir freeorion_build
cd freeorion_build/

every thing went will

but when i ran

#$ cmake ../freeorion
-- Build type CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE set to Release
-- Building tests BUILD_TESTS set to OFF
-- Not building Tests

sudo dnf install python-devel

I corrected the article and this should resolve your issue.

Read CMake output and you will see cmake is complaining about missing python-libs.

I know :) How do I solve it? simply trying to install the missing packages by names given isn't working
