Description mephinet 2007-02-26 09:57:03 UTC
Hi gamers,

when emerging sturmbahnfahrer-1.3, the game's data files get stored in 

if I start the program, I get:

Cannot load '/usr/games/share/games/sturmbahnfahrer/sounds/rpm_graph.txt'
sturmbahnfahrer: intro.cxx:89: Intro::Intro(SoundEngineAlsa*, const std::string&): Assertion `f' failed.

notice the extra "games" in the path.

Comment 1 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-26 18:08:24 UTC
run strace -o out /usr/games/bin/sturmbahnfahrer and attach the out file as text/plain please.

strace output

strace output attached.
doesn't contain anything useful, imho, though.

open("/usr/games/share/games/sturmbahnfahrer/sounds/rpm_graph.txt", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
Comment 3 mephinet 2007-02-27 14:28:00 UTC
When I debug into the main function, what happens is this:

(gdb) p (char *) argv [0]
$15 = 0xbfb6a74a "/usr/games/bin/sturmbahnfahrer"

but after the line
 char *bindirname  = dirname(argv[0]);
(gdb) p (char *) argv [0]
$16 = 0xbfb6a74a "/usr/games/bin"

which means that argv has been modified, which is according to the man page of dirname:

> Both  dirname() and basename() may modify the contents of path, 
> so copies should be passed to these functions. 

then, in the else clause of if (!strcmp(bindirname,".")),
dirname is called again,

dirprefix = dirname(bindirname) + ...

so bindirname is modified too, and the dirprefix is set to "/usr/games". then, "share/games/..." is appended to it, resulting in

(gdb) p dirprefix->_M_dataplus->_M_p
$21 = 0x83e30f4 "/usr/games/share/games/sturmbahnfahrer"

which is wrong...
Comment 4 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-28 17:36:26 UTC
How about the output from "emerge -evp games-sports/sturmbahnfahrer"

See, it works fine here with all stable x86 packages so I'm trying to figure out what's different about your stuff.

output of "emerge -evp games-sports/sturmbahnfahrer"

output attached.
Reading the code, things would work if sys.argv [0] is a file in a 2nd level directory. So, if you create e.g a symlink in /usr/bin, then the code would strip
/usr/bin/sturmbahnfahrer down to /usr, and the generated string would be OK. But for a 3rd level directory like /usr/games/bin, the code won't work, imho.

what does "which sturmbahnfahrer" return on your box?
Comment 6 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-28 22:26:52 UTC
$ which sturmbahnfahrer 

It's something on your system.  The stock stuff in portage should work fine.

Maybe try remerging ode and plib.
Comment 7 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-28 22:29:00 UTC
Ah... so, don't specify the exact path.  Try just running it as "sturmbahnfahrer".  I bet that works.
Comment 8 Mr. Bones. (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-02-28 22:42:03 UTC
Ok... yeah, the whacking with argv is silly.  I "fixed" it with a sed hammer.  sleep 30m ; emerge --sync ; emerge -v sturmbahnfahrer to get the fix.
Comment 9 mephinet 2007-03-01 10:07:55 UTC
works fine, thanks.
