[16:03:32] <jan_here> evening
[16:03:45] <armav> hi jan_here
[16:04:15] <jan_here> could someone lend me a hand with ucxt again?
[16:05:12] <jan_here> I had to reinstall my stuff and now I don't get it to decompile my usecode file..
[16:05:43] <jan_here> hey armav, also from Germany?
[16:08:26] <armav> true
[16:15:43] <jan_here> I haven't heard your nick before, are you also a programmer on the team?
[16:15:56] <armav> no, i'm just a fanboy :)
[16:16:26] <jan_here> shame on you ;)
[16:22:56] <jan_here> why does ucxt ignore my data_path?
[16:23:59] * jan_here is frustrated..
[16:24:20] <armav> jan_here: what os?
[16:24:27] <jan_here> linux
[16:25:06] <armav> did you compile it yourself or did you download the rpm?
[16:25:16] <jan_here> compiled myself
[16:25:40] <jan_here> it should look for data_path in the exult.cfg file AFAIK
[16:25:44] * armav is puzzled
[16:25:58] <jan_here> set to: <config>
[16:25:58] <jan_here> <disk>
[16:25:58] <jan_here> <data_path>
[16:25:58] <jan_here> /home/lars/exult-1.1beta3/data
[16:25:58] <jan_here> </data_path>
[16:26:12] <armav> but in linux it's something like .exult.cfg or .exultrc, right?
[16:26:17] <jan_here> but it always says: Parameters parsed...
[16:26:17] <jan_here> Loading exult configuration file...
[16:26:17] <jan_here> Initing runtime tables...
[16:26:17] <jan_here> datadir: /usr/local/share/exult/
[16:26:27] <jan_here> yes, .exult.cfg
[16:27:10] <armav> that sounds like a bug
[16:28:14] <jan_here> this programm is sometimes more trouble than use..
[16:28:23] <Dark-Star> looks like maybe it loads the wrong config file
[16:28:31] <jan_here> exult itself quite happily uses the variable
[16:28:40] <Dark-Star> just add a line in the source code to print out the name of the config file used and check
[16:29:05] <jan_here> easier said than done...
[16:30:27] <armav> Dark-Star: which source file would you have to modify?
[16:34:30] <jan_here> if I read the source of ucxt correctly he should have loaded the right file, I check for parsing
[16:39:02] <jan_here> hmm.. different data dir.. ucxt wants a separate variable for its _own_ data path
[16:39:11] <jan_here> no wonder I hit the wall..
[16:40:20] <jan_here> <ucxt>
[16:40:20] <jan_here> <root>
[16:40:20] <jan_here> /home/guest/exult-1.1beta3/usecode/ucxt/data
[16:40:20] <jan_here> </root>
[16:40:20] <jan_here> </ucxt>
[16:45:14] <armav> does the documentation mention any of this?
[16:55:09] <jan_here> there is mentioning of these tags exult/usecode/ucxt/Docs but the described error did not match my problem so I had to guess a little
[16:55:29] <jan_here> in ucxtread.txt
