[22:43:26] --> archjun has joined #gemrb
[22:44:44] <archjun> Hello GemRB devs!
[22:45:09] <archjun> The last time I built from source was at the end of April 2013...
[22:45:18] <archjun> version number was 0.8.0
[22:45:53] <archjun> cloned from github today, 2013.10.29~30, but version is still 0.8.0
[22:46:01] <archjun> although there have been TONS of improvements
[22:47:15] <Lightkey> 환영합니다
[22:47:27] <archjun> 와우!
[22:47:32] <Lightkey> yes, there has not been a new release since then
[22:47:57] <archjun> back in April Watcher's Keep was unplayable...
[22:47:59] <lynxlynxlynx> activity quieted down during the late summer
[22:48:04] <archjun> but now I can move from room to room!
[22:48:08] <archjun> it's awesome!
[22:48:24] <lynxlynxlynx> that's odd, i've played it with older gemrb too
[22:48:34] <archjun> really?
[22:48:49] <lynxlynxlynx> anyway, currently we have some loose ends, so master is not in releasable state
[22:48:58] <archjun> ic
[22:49:20] <archjun> the reason I'm asking is that I would like a way to version new builds from github
[22:49:31] <lynxlynxlynx> git describe?
[22:50:10] <archjun> oh -- I'm not planning to submit a pull request or anything...
[22:50:31] <archjun> I'm the new package maintainer for gemrb-git on AUR (Archlinux User Repo)
[22:50:48] <lynxlynxlynx> aha
[22:51:01] <lynxlynxlynx> well that command can be used to get a unique version
[22:51:38] <archjun> ok -- so I would do a git clone <URL> and then run git describe from the CLI?
[22:52:42] <lynxlynxlynx> aren't you doing that already?
[22:52:57] <lynxlynxlynx> also, i have no idea about arch's versioning policy
[22:53:06] <archjun> hmm...I tried 'git describe' on another local repo (not gemrb-git) and the following:
[22:53:20] <archjun> fatal: No names found, cannot describe anything.
[22:54:21] <archjun> reading git describe --help right now
[22:55:37] <archjun> the version I gave to gemrb-git is 20131030, but I don't think it's appropriate
[22:56:00] <archjun> after all, when gemrb loads a game it clearly reads, "GemRB v.0.8.0"
[22:57:58] <archjun> When I built from source today I had an issue with default directories,
[22:58:14] <archjun> so I added some symbolic links to the PKGBUILD on AUR
[22:58:38] <archjun> namely,
[22:58:41] <archjun> ln -s /usr/lib/gemrb/plugins ~/.gemrb
[22:58:42] <lynxlynxlynx> for a git build, it will say v0.8.0-git right now
[22:58:44] <archjun> ln -s /usr/share/gemrb/override ~/.gemrb
[22:58:46] <archjun> ln -s /usr/share/gemrb/unhardcoded ~/.gemrb
[22:58:48] <archjun> ln -s /usr/share/gemrb/GUIScripts ~/.gemrb
[22:58:55] <archjun> right
[22:59:16] <lynxlynxlynx> for the paths just pass the right ones to cmake
[22:59:22] <lynxlynxlynx> these hacks are horrible
[22:59:27] <archjun> i know
[22:59:28] <archjun> sorry
[22:59:49] <Lightkey> :-D
[22:59:50] <lynxlynxlynx> maybe a repo requires at least one tag for describe to work
[22:59:57] <archjun> my first time maintaining a pkg...
[23:01:07] <archjun> ok - I'll try running 'git describe' on the gemrb-git repo
[23:01:58] <tomprince> You might need 'git describe --tags'
[23:02:22] <tomprince> Since gemrb only has lightweight tags.
[23:02:32] <lynxlynxlynx> works here without
[23:04:44] <archjun> oh sweet -- v0.8.0-289-g88bbd16
[23:05:15] <archjun> I'll use this to version the gemrb-git packages on AUR
[23:05:21] <archjun> from now on
[23:05:58] <archjun> also I'll work on getting rid of the hacks from package() {} in the PKGBUILD
[23:06:47] <archjun> currently the flag being passed to CMAKE is
[23:07:08] <archjun> cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr -DINSOURCEBUILD=1
[23:08:05] <archjun> BG2_gemrb.cfg allows the user to change where gemrb looks for files,
[23:08:10] <lynxlynxlynx> sounds ok, though i would just make a build dir
[23:08:26] <lynxlynxlynx> do you recompress everything?
[23:09:06] <archjun> well, as a regular user on AUR, I'm not allowed to upload binaries
[23:09:18] <archjun> I can only upload a PKGBUILD (textfile)
[23:09:34] <archjun> which other Archlinux users can then use to build binaries on their local machines
[23:09:54] <archjun> using the Arch Build System command 'makepkg'
[23:20:37] <archjun> ok -- now the package version has been renamed using 'git describe'
[23:20:40] <archjun> https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/gemrb-git/
[23:21:11] <archjun> now I just need to figure out how to pass the appropriate flags to cmake
[23:21:58] <archjun> so that gemrb doesn't look for files in ~/.gemrb
[23:22:07] <archjun> instead of in /usr/share/...
[23:26:38] <lynxlynxlynx> i meant the git archive - i know it's not redownloaded from scratch all the time
[23:30:25] <lynxlynxlynx> gemrb looks in several places by default
[23:30:39] <lynxlynxlynx> no need for the symlinks, really
[23:30:45] <archjun> oh...
[23:31:03] <archjun> I added the symlinks because of error msgs I was getting
[23:32:42] <archjun> i even tried explicitly setting the paths in BG2_gemrb.cfg, but no dice
[23:32:52] <archjun> hence the ugly hack
[23:33:54] <lynxlynxlynx> you did remember to uncomment them?
[23:34:24] <lynxlynxlynx> and for what you're passing, /usr/share is the default
[23:35:13] <lynxlynxlynx> good night
[23:36:26] <-- lynxlynxlynx has left IRC (Remote host closed the connection)
[23:37:20] <archjun> yup -- uncommented the appropriate lines in the .cfg
[23:37:50] <archjun> but for some reason it didn't work-- that's why I went with the symlinks
[23:38:07] <archjun> I will check back in regularly on this channel
[23:38:22] <archjun> good night
[23:38:46] <-- archjun has left #gemrb ("WeeChat 0.4.2")
[23:39:28] <tomprince> -DLAYOUT=fhs maybe
