I just want to start off saying that it's great to see netpanzer under active development again. I used to play it a lot on my windows computer, and the random crashes near drove me crazy...
Anyway, I use linux now. I am attempting to compile netpanzer, and when I run ./configure it fails:
checking for SDL - version >= 1.2.5... yes
checking for SDL_mixer >= 1.2... found
checking for SDL_image >= 1.2... not found
configure: error: Please install SDLImage >= 1.2.1
I'm not quite sure, but isn't SDLImage the same as SDL_image?
BTW, I have some experience developing with C/C++, sockets on both Windows and Linux, and SDL. Let me know if I can help somehow :)
