#8850 closed patch

Missing directory in dists/debian/scummvm.dirs fix

Reported by: SF/develop7 Owned by: fingolfin

A little story. I've downloaded sources of ScummVM.v0.11.1.stable, compiled it on my Ubuntu box, ran make deb - and when i've tried to install that deb, i've got message saying "this deb wants to replace whole directory usr/share/pixmaps with single file icons/scummvm.svg". Well, installing of deb was failed, of course.

So, after some research, i've got that mentioned dir is missing in scummvm.dirs, so it is not created during packaging, so install under fakeroot treats aforesaid dir as a regular file.

Well, nuff blabber, here is a patch. It was not tested though, so feel free to edit them as you wish.

Thanks, added to SVN.

I also suppose that someone could rerelease source tarballs with patched scummvm.dirs inside.

comment:4 by fingolfin, 16 years ago

Nope, "releasing" source tarballs after the release was already made is a bad idea. This will for example change the MD5 checksum of the source tarball.

However, I guess debs made from the buggy scummvm.dirs could be updated. And of course the next release will include the fix, too.
