content problems - Mandrake 10.0 community
« on: September 10, 2005, 05:09:34 pm »

Hi all,

I've been a huge fan of SC2 ever since 93 or 94 when I first played it.  Anyhow, I had no problems getting uqm 0.4.0 to build correctly.  But when I try to run it, I get this message:

The Ur-Quan Masters v0.4.0 (compiled Sep 10 2005 10:17:39)
This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY;
for details see the included 'COPYING' file.

Initializing base SDL functionality.
Using SDL version 1.2.9 (compiled with 1.2.9)
Using '/usr/local/games/share/uqm/content' as base content dir.
Saved games are kept in /home/jcd/.uqm/save/.
Initializing Pure-SDL graphics.
SDL driver used: x11
SDL initialized.
Initializing Screen.
Set the resolution to: 640x480x32
0 joysticks were found.
Error: Could not copy default key config to user config dir: No such file or directory.

[jcd@CPE0010b5caac72-CM0014e825d0f4 jcd]$ ls /usr/local/games/share/uqm/content
uqm-0.4.0-3domusic.uqm  uqm-0.4.0-content.uqm  version
[jcd@CPE0010b5caac72-CM0014e825d0f4 jcd]$

I checked a previous thread on the matter, and the admin suggested that the content directory was empty.  At first, mine was too, so I copied the .uqm files into the content directory, and did a re-install.  I still get this problem.

Any ideas?

The .uqm files should be in a directory "packages" in the content base dir.

when at last there is no Void, no Non
