Note:These packages have not necessarily been created by any of the developers of Minetest. Contact the authors of the packages in case of problems (at first).
NOTE: If you use daily/unstable versions on servers or persistent worlds, make sure to back them up periodically.
If your distribution is not listed here, you can get the source code and compile Minetest yourself.
If you have packaged Minetest for some other distribution, contact me so I can link to it.
Note:It is known to compile relatively easily on OpenBSD at least. It should work quite fine on all platforms on which Irrlicht works.
Note:You need 'minetest' and 'minetest_game'.
Note: minetest_game goes in the games/ directory of minetest. Rename it as minetest_game (instead of the long name in the package).
