Sear is not using media files from system dir

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
WorldForge: Sear
sear (Fedora)
Fix Released

Bug Description

I have installed sear from fedora packages. After starting sear it downloaded media files update and put it in ~/.sear.
After that it was starting and complain about "File not found '/home/alex/.sear//sear-media-0.6//settler//skeleton.csf'".
I had to copy media files from system dir /usr/share/sear/sear-media-0.6 to my local ~/.sear/sear-media-0.6 to get rid of this error.

Changed in sear:
status: Unknown → Confirmed

This bug has been fixed in CVS for sometime now.
It is caused by early evaluation of a path string in the cal3d model definition file which it then used to find the files that make up the model.

Please try the cvs version of Sear, or I can potentially put together a patch against version 0.6.3.

Thanks. I'm unsure is it how to compile sear, because I already updated to eris-1.3.13 to make ember, but sear seems to still requiring eris-1.3.12.

You can try changing the ERIS_VERSION number in to the required value, then re-run, configure etc.

I have not tried compiling Sear with this version, so there may be some problems if the api has changed.

I'll just try it now myself.

Sear compiles and runs fine with eris 1.3.13.

A patch against sear 0.6.3 would be appreciated. I can add this patch to the Fedora package and push out an update rather quickly.
