Contrary to popular belief, we are not all-knowing-all-seeing magical beings!

If you want help you're going to have to provide lots of info. Like what is your hardware, what is your operating system, what version of GZDoom/LZDoom/whatever you're using, what mods you're loading, how you're loading it, what you've already tried for fixing the problem, and anything else that is even remotely relevant to the problem.

We can't magically figure out what it is if you're going to be vague, and if we feel like you're just wasting our time with guessing games we will act like that's what you're really doing and won't help you.

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
