Glob2 on FreeBSD - preferences.txt

Post by Tinloaf » Wed Jul 05, 2006 6:23 pm


I am trying to get Globulation2 running on a FreeBSD (6.0). I used the ports collection to install.

When starting glob2, it complains about a missing "preferences.txt" and a fatal error while loading "data/texts.list.txt".

What's the solution of this?

The preferences.txt is normal. The fatal error on the other hand, we need more information.

I have experienced a similar problem.
After make, the game ran well, but after install and clean, it no longer could find data/texts.list.txt.
ktrace revealed that it was searching in

The second place is where I built the game, the third is obviously the one that should have worked and which should have been replaced by the value $PREFIX/share/glob2 at configure time.
I traced back the problem to the generation of config.h. Correcting it locally was not difficult, but I could not correct what caused the bug since I find autotools is quite difficult.
