0011635: DF can't be launched at all
I don't actually know if such a thing can be called a bug, but... I just can't launch the game :(

I downloaded the official .bz2 file from the bay12, tried to run 'df' file.
That's what I got:
./Dwarf_Fortress: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

After installing a ton of random libs and dlls I proceeded to:
./libs/Dwarf_Fortress: /home/kctf/Games/df_linux/libs/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.8' not found (required by /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGLU.so.1)
./libs/Dwarf_Fortress: /home/kctf/Games/df_linux/libs/libstdc++.so.6: version `CXXABI_1.3.9' not found (required by /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libGLU.so.1)

None stackverflow answers helped me, an hour of googling leads to nothing, so I now consider this to be a bug. Again, I'm very sorry for taking your time, if it's not.
No tags attached.

Renaming libstdc++.so.6 to anything else helped!
Now it only gives me 'Dynamically loading the OpenAL library failed, disabling sound' error. Sad, but at least I can enjoy DF from now on

Marking this as a duplicate for 0009893 (for the libstdc++ part). I didn't find an existing issue related to SDL and other dependencies, but they're already documented in README.linux and at https://dwarffortresswiki.org/index.php/Installation [^] .
