Hi All,

I installed the new SpiderWeb 2.2.2 on Fienix today. It works on my X1000 but it doesn't start on my X5000. I tried Wicknix's package as well but it doesn't work on my X5000 with Fienix either. The strange thing is, that the new SpiderWeb 2.2.2 works on ubuntu MATE 16.04.6 on my X5000 without any problems.

The new InterWeb works on both AmigaOnes with Fienix.

Cheers,
Christian

Does the new SpiderWeb 2.2.2 work on your Fienix?

Hi Christian,
It's working for me. Could you try removing your SpiderWeb config directory from ~/wicknix and see if it will launch?
Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

Minetest 5.2 and several mods are now available in the Fienix software repositories. Minetest is an open-world voxel sandbox game similar to Minecraft. The mod "Skyblock" gives a good introduction to the game and crafting.

I created a tutorial video for the Fienix Open-Source Gaming series: Minetest Tutorial

Additionally, some games were recently updated to their most recent release including Blobwars, PRBoom+ and xmoto.

Please let me know if you run into any issues.

Hi Casey,

I removed the SpiderWeb config directory today and it works again! Thanks for the hint! :-)

@All
The old version of ViewTube doesn't work with YouTube in SpiderWeb anymore. It isn't possible to install the new version with SpiderWeb. You have to install it manually.

Installation instructions:
  1. Download the ViewTube v2 script
  2. Decompress the package and copy the folder gm_scripts to /home/<your user directory>/.wicknix/spiderweb/<profile directory>
    For example:

    Code: Select all

    cp -R gm_scripts /home/amigaone/.wicknix/spiderweb/xa4ue3g6.default/
  3. Restart SpiderWeb
Cheers,
Christian
