Description vitor 2009-01-31 13:49:45 UTC
Quake 1 linux can't load data files if they are uppercase.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. # echo 'games-fps/ezquake cdinstall' >> /etc/portage/package.use
2. # emerge ezquake-bin
3. $ ezquake-gl.glx
Error: W_LoadWadFile: couldn't load gfx.wad
Actual Results:  
The game won't load until you rename the files.

Just rename every file in game's dir to lowercase.
for name in `find /usr/share/games/quake1/id1/*`; do
    mv $name `echo $name | tr '[A-Z]' '[a-z]'`
