Description BT 2020-04-10 09:03:27 UTC
I have a Quake 2 disc that is part of the Ultimate Quake collection. Attempting to install games-fps/quake2-data results in the following error:

>>> Emerging (1 of 1) games-fps/quake2-data-3.20::gentoo
 * q2-3.20-x86-full-ctf.exe BLAKE2B SHA512 size ;-) ...                                                                                               [ ok ]
>>> Unpacking source...
 * This ebuild will need the CD for quake2-data

 * If you do not have the CD, but have the data files
 * mounted somewhere on your filesystem, just export
 * the variable CD_ROOT so that it points to the
 * directory containing the files.

 * For example:
 * export CD_ROOT=/mnt/cdrom

 * Found CD #1 root at /mnt/cdrom

 * QA Notice: file does not exist:
 *      dohtml: /mnt/cdrom/Install/Docs/quake2_manual/* does not exist

I examined the disc contents and noticed that the 'Docs' directory is located at '/mnt/cdrom/Install/Data/Docs' and not '/mnt/cdrom/Install/Docs' that the ebuild was expecting.

Changing the following line in the ebuild

1) dohtml -r "${CDROM_ROOT}"/Install/Docs/quake2_manual/* ;;


1) dohtml -r "${CDROM_ROOT}"/Install/Data/Docs/quake2_manual/* ;;

allows games-fps/quake2-data to install successfully.

Based on the discussion at, the MD5 hash of the data track is d211a2aaa73688af44f21c88f68e5224. The hash matches the Ultimate Quake version 3.20 at[1]. It also matches 3 other entries[2][3][4] that are version 3.20.
