Cannot find gzdoom.pk3

Post by tmy »

I've packaged gzdoom on OpenBSD but starting the gzdoom fails with simple error:

Code: Select all

 $ gzdoom
GZDoom <unknown version> -  - SDL version
Compiled on Jul 10 2022


Cannot find gzdoom.pk3
 $ 
The gzdoom.pk3 exists in path /usr/local/share/games/doom. The ktrace utility shows that the gzdoom is trying to stat ./gzdoom.pk3. This is evident as changing current directory to /usr/local/share/games/doom makes gzdoom start as expected.
Any ideas why it is not finding the gzdoom.pk3 itself, I'd expect it to iterate the common locations for it.

I have following defined in my ~/.config/zdoom/zdoom.ini:

Code: Select all

# This file was generated by GZDoom <unknown version> on 2019-05-25 16:51:47

Path=.
Path=$DOOMWADDIR
Path=$HOME/.config/gzdoom

Path=/usr/local/share/games/doom
Path=/usr/share/doom
