[00:35:30] --> kaboo has joined #exult
[00:36:13] <kaboo> alright im not sure if anyone will respond but im trying to get exult working in linux but i have no idea where to place the game data so it will see it
[00:37:01] <sh4rm4> let me check...
[00:37:05] <kaboo> ok
[00:37:54] <sh4rm4> /usr/local/share/exult
[00:38:13] <kaboo> so just place the ultima 7 folder there and it should work?
[00:38:47] <sh4rm4> in folders blackgate , serpenisle
[00:38:52] <sh4rm4> *serpentisle
[00:40:00] <sh4rm4> $ la /usr/local/share/exult/blackgate/
[00:40:18] <kaboo> im still getting the error about not being able to find the static data
[00:40:23] <sh4rm4> drwxr-xr-x 2 rofl users 4096 May 29 2004 STATIC
[00:41:40] <sh4rm4> so what you have *inside* your ultima7 archive (e.g. static dir), put that into blackgate

[00:44:09] <sh4rm4> kaboo, working now ?
[00:44:27] <kaboo> no but i think its because i got an orphaned package from the AUR
[00:44:38] <kaboo> so im bulding the svn version
[00:45:11] <sh4rm4> is your static dir uppercased ?
[00:45:17] <sh4rm4> maybe that makes a difference
[00:45:25] <kaboo> yes its uppercased
[00:48:13] <sh4rm4> /usr/local/share/exult is the default location
[00:48:28] <sh4rm4> i found that out myself the hard way by stracing the exult binary
[00:48:39] <kaboo> well im installing the svn version right now i thik it might have been that it was an old version
[00:48:53] <sh4rm4> that's possible
[00:49:07] <sh4rm4> do you have an ~/.exult.cfg ?
[00:49:28] <kaboo> yes but its extreemly sparse
[00:50:09] <sh4rm4> http://sprunge.us/bPRi
[00:50:11] <sh4rm4> this is mine
[00:50:28] <kaboo> yes mine has almost none of that
[00:51:13] <kaboo> it seems to be building now so we will see
[00:51:29] <sh4rm4> http://sprunge.us/NGDW
[00:51:48] <sh4rm4> this is the stuff i have in the /usr/local/share/exult/ dir
[00:52:00] <sh4rm4> some sound packs and such
[00:52:21] <kaboo> looks all standard to me
[00:52:26] <sh4rm4> all with default filenames so exult picks them up with a minimum of XML config mess
[00:56:12] <sh4rm4> still building ?
[00:56:20] <kaboo> the build failed
[00:56:28] <sh4rm4> you should use make -j5 if you have multiple cores
[00:56:37] <sh4rm4> s/multiple/4
[00:56:58] <sh4rm4> what's wrong ?
[00:57:48] <kaboo> *** No rule to make target `ucparse.h', needed by `uclex.o'. Stop. that apparently
[01:00:30] <sh4rm4> try --enable-compiler=no
[01:00:34] <sh4rm4> at configure
[01:02:11] <sh4rm4> or --disable-tools
[01:03:19] <sh4rm4> ~/mount/git-mirror/exult[master]$ find . -name ucparse.h
[01:03:19] <sh4rm4> ./usecode/compiler/ucparse.h
[01:04:21] <sh4rm4> that file is not in the version control, so it must be generated by something
[01:04:32] <sh4rm4> do you have flex/bison installed?
[01:04:45] <sh4rm4> /* A Bison parser, made by GNU Bison 2.4.1. */
[01:04:50] <kaboo> im pretty sure i do
[01:08:04] <sh4rm4> find . -name Makefile | xargs grep ucparse
[01:08:04] <sh4rm4> ./usecode/compiler/Makefile: ucparse.cc ucparse.h
[01:08:26] <kaboo> i think ill just keep playing it on doxbox till i get some form of windows installed
[01:08:41] <sh4rm4> you can --disable-tools
[01:08:47] <sh4rm4> you dont need the usecode compiler
[01:09:43] <sh4rm4> ~/mount/git-mirror/exult[master]$ ./configure --help | grep disable-too
[01:09:43] <sh4rm4> --disable-tools Only build the main program
[01:10:20] <sh4rm4> oh btw
[01:10:46] <sh4rm4> /usr/local/share/exult/ is probably the default dir when prefix is /usr/local
[01:11:18] <sh4rm4> so in the archlinux package, it's probably /usr/share/exult or even /share/exult
