I suspect that your problem is related with Red/Blue pill mode. Try to activate Red pill mode:
Activating Red Pill mode
- Go to "Tools > Application catalogue",
- click "New",
- enter "matrix" into the "Web Address" field,
- click "Cancel".
- Choosing the red pill will activate the red pill mode, obviously, and choosing the blue one will deactivate it.
thanks, that allowed me to install teh pre-req's but I can't install / find libsdlttf-2.0_0
I turned to Convergents distribution, but this install just hung, so I will try again later.
