[Solved] Command line option -nosplash fails in Arch Linux?

Post by Getafix » Sun Jul 10, 2011 11:40 pm

Having read Enverex's post here, I tried executing

Code: Select all

# oolite -nosplash
and

Code: Select all

# oolite --nosplash
in Ubuntu8.04, OpenSuSE11.1, Mandriva2009, Fedora11, LinuxMint10 and Debian5.03,
to check if somehow we lost this option in Linux. Well... it worked. :?
Unfortunately I don't have an Arch Linux installation handy (yet :wink: ),
so if any Arch Linux user out there can post some feedback,
it would help identify a possible script incompatibility. Thanx!

the archlinux package places the following script in /usr/bin/ :

Code: Select all

#!/bin/bash
source /usr/share/GNUstep/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh
if [ ! -d ~/.Oolite/AddOns ]; then
      mkdir -p ~/.Oolite/AddOns
fi
/usr/share/oolite/oolite

OK, I see. If I got this right, then the last line should be

Code: Select all

/usr/share/oolite/oolite $@
In that way you take the arguments used at the command line and you pass them in the script.

I've informed the maintainer of the archlinux package, and that change will be implemented in the 1.75.3 package.
