Description Alexey Torkhov 2007-12-15 10:32:39 UTC
Description of problem:
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 message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
sear-0.6.3-5.fc8

How reproducible:
Always.

Steps to Reproduce:
Run sear from console. Login to server.

Actual results:
Error message "File not found
'/home/alex/.sear//sear-media-0.6//settler//skeleton.csf'". It continues to run
but in-game I don't see myself (my char).

Expected results:
Sear load files also from /usr/share/sear/sear-media-0.6

Additional info:
I reported also to their bugtracker https://bugs.launchpad.net/sear/+bug/176514.
But I'm unsure if this is not but of packaging.

Comment 1 Wart 2007-12-19 05:16:40 UTC
Indeed, sear does seem to be ignoring the previously installed media files. 
Removing the sear-media package and letting sear download all media files to
~/.sear works, that is, the game runs and you see the characters and objects in
the game.

Thanks for the link to the bug report.  I've added a comment asking for the
patch against 0.6.3.  I'll also make sure that sear is using the latest version
of eris.
