XONOTIC on Raspberry Pi - AJ_Gaming - 05-12-2018

I was on my Raspberry Pi and I was looking at games that run on Linux, so I decided to download this game on my Pi. I have played Quake before. The problem that I have is when I try opening XONOTIC what happens is I get an error message saying exec file error or something like that even though Raspberry Pi runs on Linux. Can someone help me?

Hi!
Raspberry Pi runs Linux but on a different hardware than traditional PC, the executable you downloaded is built for x86 processors (by Intel or AMD for example) and will not run on a Raspberry Pi which has an ARM processor. Sadly, unless someone or yourself rebuild the game for ARM (I even don't know if it's possible), you can't run Xonotic on a Pi, and I really don't know if a Pi is powerful enough.

ok, I guess I will just play on my Linux computer then thanks

I think you should be able to compile/build xonotic on linux runnin on arm just like on any other processor using the linux guide to build the game. You might not even run into dependency issues like me on win.

I'm really curious if it works as I have similar plans but I haven't even a raspberry pi nor other sbc to try out. :c
