override.txt issue

override.txt issue

Postby kestral » Wed Mar 27, 2019 6:50 pm

I was having problems using the LessDirt texture pack with MineClone2.

It turns out that the Linux version of Minetest (tag: 5.0.0) seems to have problems with the dos-format override.txt file LessDirt uses. It has CR+LF (\r\n) line termination.

ERROR[Main]: generateImage(): Could not load image "mcldefault_grass_side.png
ERROR[Main]: " while building texture; Creating a dummy image

When I run dos2unix on this override.txt file, it works just fine.

I also tried running on Windows, and the override.txt file seems to work equally well with either dos- or unix-format line termination.

Is this a bug in how Minetest reads override.txt files in Linux, or is there an undocumented requirement that they need to be formatted as unix-style files?

There's a similar bug in the parsing of settingstypes.txt when running under Linux (#7912).

I'll upload the LF workaround to LessDirt.
