[00:32:48] <-- Baastuul has left IRC ("Quatsch!")
[00:36:58] --> Zerothis has joined #exult
[00:37:14] <Zerothis> hello
[00:38:20] <Zerothis> I'm a fairly competent exult user on windows. but I'm having trouble getting exult to run on linux. is the the right place to ask?
[00:39:18] <wjp> hi
[00:39:22] <wjp> sure
[00:40:26] --> Baastuul has joined #exult
[00:43:09] <Zerothis> I'm using Mandriva 2006, and KDE, i installed using exult-1.2-1.i386.rpm, i have a DOS installed version of U7 in /home/zerothis/MyROMs/dos/Ultima7/ (where is works great for DosBox) and I've edited the .exult.cfg to point to this directory. but when I run exult it can't find it
[00:44:24] <wjp> if you start Exult from a terminal, does it say which file exactly it can't find?
[00:45:39] <Zerothis> oh, lemy check
[00:46:28] <Zerothis> Black Gate : not found (./static/endgame.dat)
[00:46:28] <Zerothis> exult_bg.flx : found
[00:46:28] <Zerothis> Serpent Isle : not found (./static/sispeech.spc)
[00:46:28] <Zerothis> exult_si.flx : found
[00:46:50] <wjp> then you either have the paths setup wrong in .exult.cfg or .exult.cfg is in the wrong place
[00:47:00] <wjp> (it thinks "." is the game path for both BG and SI)
[00:47:09] <wjp> .exult.cfg should be in your home directory
[00:47:11] <Zerothis> it never ocured to me to run it from terminal, i'm not that adept at linux yet
[00:48:35] <Zerothis> .exult.cfg is in /home/zerothis/ should it be in /home ?
[00:48:48] <wjp> no, that sounds fine
[00:49:21] <wjp> the /home/zerothis/ directory is what's commonly knows as "your home directory" or "your homedir"
[00:49:44] <Zerothis> though so, just checking
[00:51:22] <Zerothis> could it be a permissions thing? do I have to chmod something?
[00:51:41] <wjp> can you show me your .exult.cfg?
[00:52:12] <Zerothis> probably best to send the file instead of post in chat, right?
[00:52:15] <wjp> yes
[00:52:33] <Zerothis> i'll attempt that soon
[00:55:21] <Zerothis> here it comes i hope
[00:55:49] <wjp> you're using some form of NAT and it's not handling IRC DCC transfers
[00:55:50] <Zerothis> this is a copy with a preceeding dot
[00:56:51] <Zerothis> hmm, I'm using gaim. i also have kopete, will that work?
[00:57:08] <wjp> no, it needs changes on whatever is doing the NAT
[00:57:50] <wjp> try something like http://pastebin.com/
[00:58:14] <Zerothis> oh NAT, duh! a firewall thind
[00:58:35] * wjp nods
[01:00:19] <Zerothis> ok, i pasted the text and sent it at pastebin
[01:00:36] <Zerothis> http://pastebin.com/562005
[01:00:41] <wjp> you need to set path instead of gamedat_path
[01:00:58] <Zerothis> oic
[01:01:52] * Zerothis dances
[01:02:00] <Zerothis> it work, thank you
[01:02:06] <wjp> you're welcome
[01:02:36] <Zerothis> now, i've elmininated all need of windows
[01:03:10] <wjp> I have to go; good night
[01:03:20] <Zerothis> gn, thanks again
[01:06:43] <Zerothis> that pastebin is pretty cool, world wide clipboard
