07:38<simon444>alex_, is that when you poop in your sleep?
07:39<Noldo>simon444: can you remember when was the lastime you had an on-topic and meaningfull contribution to this channel?
07:39<simon444>Noldo, yes. However, I don't think alex_'s comment was any more offtopic than me.
07:44<YOYO-NL>anyone has an idea which package works on Suse linux?
07:45<+glx>source should
07:45|-|skidd13|uni [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
07:45<+glx>but you need to compile it
07:45<YOYO-NL>lawl that could be fun never have done that :)
07:51|-|Leif_ [] has joined #openttd
07:51<Eddi|zuHause>iirc celestar did attempt to create suse packages once... might have been for the nightlies...
07:51|-|Leif_ changed nick to Zuu
07:51|-|Ammller [] has joined #openttd
07:51<Eddi|zuHause>but compiling should work fine... remember to install the -devel versions of sdl and stuff...
07:51<YOYO-NL>yeah im reading the wiki
07:51<YOYO-NL>says i need quite a lot
07:51<YOYO-NL>sure i need that in order to maka a server?
07:51<+glx>you don't need sd for a server
07:51<+glx>you can build a dedicated only version
07:52<Noldo>./configure will tell
07:52<YOYO-NL>thats what i want :) so if i understand correctly i dont need a sd package then?
07:52<Eddi|zuHause>yeah, but zlib at least :)
07:52<YOYO-NL>hmmm k
07:52<+glx>zlib is a must :) else the savegames will be very big
07:52|-|Ammler [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
07:56<YOYO-NL>hmmm you need to do this with every update of Openttd>?
07:56<Noldo>if you use the source package,yes
07:57<Maedhros>well, you only need to install the libraries / headers once
08:01|-|Eddi|zuHause [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
08:01|-|Eddi|zuHause [] has joined #openttd
08:02<YOYO-NL>k when the packages are in then open a terminal and type $ ./configure
08:02<YOYO-NL>does it give me a choise on where i can put it?
08:02<+glx>./configure --dedicated
08:02<+glx>./configure --help qill show you the options
08:05<simon444>you don't need to compile
08:06<simon444>just use the precompiled tarballs for your libc
08:07<+glx>simon444: these files just don't exist
08:08<YOYO-NL>ah crap my HD doenst want again
08:09<YOYO-NL>need to fix that first
08:10<simon444>glx, I'm to old then\
08:11<simon444>much simplier in the unix days
08:32|-|Zuu [] has quit [Quit: Leaving]
08:43<YOYO-NL>ok it does something strang
08:43<YOYO-NL>i placed the zip on the disk im gonna use for it
08:43<YOYO-NL>unpacked it
08:43<YOYO-NL>went to terminal
08:44<YOYO-NL>moved to the according map
08:44<YOYO-NL>said /configure --help
08:44<YOYO-NL>then it says no such file
08:44<YOYO-NL>but it is in the list :s
08:45<svip>:) He forgot the dot.
08:45<+glx>you used zip or tar to get the source?
08:45<Eddi|zuHause>not /configure
08:45<YOYO-NL>recieved back: bash: ./configure: /bin/sh: bad interpreter: Permission denied
08:45<svip>:/ what did you download it as?
08:46<YOYO-NL>tar file
08:46<svip>I meant user.
08:46<YOYO-NL>as normal
08:46<YOYO-NL>install using root
08:46<svip>You haven't even configured it yet.
08:47<YOYO-NL>yeah lol :) i explain better
08:47<svip>No need to use root though.
08:47<svip>You only have to use root for "make install".
08:47<YOYO-NL>i downloaded the file as tar.bz2 as the normal user called YOYO
08:47<svip>In capital letters? :|
08:47<YOYO-NL>then i switchd to root in order to prevent
08:48<svip>Prevent what?
08:48<YOYO-NL>wrong permissions ect
08:48<YOYO-NL>then i start the terminal
08:48<YOYO-NL>go to the according map
08:48<ln->don't use your system as root.
08:48<YOYO-NL>where i unpacked the tar.bz2
08:48<svip>Indeed, ln-.
08:48<YOYO-NL>root only used in order to do things to the system
08:48<YOYO-NL>its not in use for common tasks
08:49|-|RamboRonny [] has joined #openttd
08:49<Eddi|zuHause>unpacking and compiling are "common tasks"
08:49<svip>That is not true.
08:49<Eddi|zuHause>just "make install" should require root
08:50<YOYO-NL>ok but why do i get permission denied
08:50<+glx>what are the rights of configure?
08:50<svip>Try unpacking it again as your usual user.
08:50<Maedhros>have you got the partition you're trying to compile on mounted noexec?
08:50<svip>ls -lh configure
08:50<svip>Better check his mtab.
08:51<svip>Meh, that doesn't say it.
08:51<YOYO-NL>ok i need to add to my story that Suse is running on a small disk wich has the original partition type and that OpenTTD is on a NTFS disk
08:51<svip>:] NTFS?
08:51<YOYO-NL>yeah :)
08:51<YOYO-NL>there is a program that coupels those 2 systems
08:51<YOYO-NL>although not bug free yet
08:52<svip>No wonder it won't work.
08:52<Maedhros>you could try `sh configure`, instead of ./configure
08:52<svip>Yeah, try that.
08:52<YOYO-NL>@swip well it works i can read write ect only from the oudside is a bit problemmatic
08:52<svip>"w" and "v" are quite far apart on the keyboard.
08:53<YOYO-NL>ah works
08:53<YOYO-NL>oops :)
08:54<YOYO-NL>then again a lot of errors saying command not found
08:54<YOYO-NL>but says its completed
08:55<Eddi|zuHause>your system configuration is probably fishy...
08:55<Maedhros>depending on what hasn't been found, the result might not be very useful...
08:55<YOYO-NL>hmmm all the errors are syntax errors
08:56<YOYO-NL>saying syntax means to me that there is a big chance it wont work. as the same goes for PLC's
08:56<Maedhros>can you put the output on ?
08:57<YOYO-NL>uhhm yes one moment
08:59<+glx>paste the url :)
09:00<+glx>ok do you have gcc installed?
09:00<YOYO-NL>srry (A)
09:00<+glx>gcc --version
09:01<YOYO-NL>bash: gcc: cmd not found
09:01<YOYO-NL>meanss no
09:01<+glx>you need to install it
09:01<+glx>it's the compiler
09:01<YOYO-NL>makes sense
09:05<YOYO-NL>ok when she is done retry that cmd?
09:11<YOYO-NL>k errors have been cleared
09:11<ln->are you root?
09:12<ln->don't be
09:12<YOYO-NL>k whats the reason for that?
09:12<YOYO-NL>would like to know :)
09:13<Maedhros>it makes it far too easy to accidentally destroy your system
09:14<YOYO-NL>k so the lesson of the day when you make a compile never do that again as root right?
09:14<Maedhros>not just that; don't log in as root unless you really need to
09:16<YOYO-NL>but for the next step root is needed right>?
09:16<ln->depends what is your next step
09:16<YOYO-NL>according to the wikki use make cmd
09:16<ln->"make" doesn't need rootness either.
09:17<YOYO-NL>k then i move out root
09:17<ln->before you do, do a "chmod -R youraccount openttdDir"
09:17<ln->instead of chmod
09:18<YOYO-NL>this makes youraccount the owner of openttdDir
09:18<ln->although.. if you're still on NTFS, i don't know what happens.

09:21<YOYO-NL>k sh make ends in cannot execute binary file
09:22<YOYO-NL>nvm make seems to be
09:22<YOYO-NL>the sollution
09:22<YOYO-NL>but again returns errors
09:22<YOYO-NL>Permisson Denied
09:23<Maedhros>your user doesn't have the permissions to write to the current directory, presumably
09:24<YOYO-NL>hmmm strange so root is the only one who can
09:31|-|OJ [] has left #openttd []
09:34<YOYO-NL>both root and normal user are giving Permission Denied
09:34|-|mikk36 [] has joined #openttd
09:41<YOYO-NL>why is it all denied :S doenst make sense all permission set to 777 to test it but still no response
09:42<+glx>ntfs is not the best filesystem for linux
09:43<YOYO-NL>i know
09:44<Priski>i heard that on linux you should not write to NTFS filesystem since it propably cause broblems
09:44<YOYO-NL>but the disk contains things i cant trow away
09:44<YOYO-NL>well a set of programmers is working on it
09:44<Priski>well convert to FAT-32 somehow?
09:44<YOYO-NL>and they have come a far way but still its buggy
09:45<YOYO-NL>hmmm is that possibel? as far as i know when you change file type it resets youre disk losing all data
09:46<Maedhros>fat32 doesn't support permissions at all
09:46<ln->Priski: there's a safe NTFS implementation nowadays.
09:46<Maedhros>so apart from the fact that reading and writing is well supported, it's even worse than ntfs
09:47<ln->YOYO-NL: buy a cheap 1 GB usb stick and format it as ext3.
09:47<Priski>ln-, there is? thats good.
09:47<ln->YOYO-NL: if you cannot format your hard disk partitions.
09:48<YOYO-NL>well it needs to offer support to 125 GB of music (A)
09:48<Maedhros>ln-: i though ext3 was a bad idea for flash disks?
09:48<YOYO-NL>not a single HD in my network has even close to that capacity
09:48<hylje>journaling is bad for flash disks
09:49<hylje>YOYO-NL: i suggest resizing the ntfs partition to be just enough for the priceless data you have there, and use the rest of the space for the real stuff
09:49<hylje>*OR* get a new disk
09:50<ln->Maedhros: could be, but shouldn't be a big loss on a 10€ stick.
09:51<YOYO-NL>so basicly you will need to lose all the data and then reform the disk and put it back.... will that work without loss of save capacity... i know win aint verry pleased when you change back to FAT 32
09:54<hylje>generally you dont need to reformat for resizing
09:58[~]YOYO-NL thinks that permissions that came with the mounting arnt correct

10:24<@Belugas>do it right, or not at all
10:24<@Belugas>and it wold not be a small hack, by the way

12:40<Maedhros>no, the conversion between currencies is done in the string drawing code

13:24<Mark>probably was alt+enter, but i cant get it back

15:17<Nickman>Hmm, in the NoAI Branch when you make a Pathfinder yo u need to supply the function "FindRoute" wich returns "internal structure about how to make the route, or NULL if no route was found."
15:18<Nickman>So I have to return for example an array of point to connect with straight lines or something?
15:18<Nickman>(I know, I can choose...)
15:22<+glx>svip: add the string in english.txt after the strings of the menu and update main_gui.cpp:980
15:23<svip>I did that.
15:23<+glx>it should show it
15:23<Rubidium>Nickman: you have to return a pointer to whatever data structure you need for to be able to build the route
15:24<Nickman>so that means I need to store my route in between the operations ;)
15:24<Nickman>how do i return a pointer in Squirrel? :)
15:24<Nickman>with the * like C++?
15:25<nckomodo>hello, I was wondering if anyone had a good knowledge of both luasocket/lua and the protocol etc used in OpenTTD. I'm looking to make a script that gets the basic information for a specified server. I'm sort of a noob when it comes to network stuff (I've written an lua IRC bot and thats about it)
15:25<Rubidium>Nickman: good question; I wouldn't know, maybe TrueBrain knows
15:26<Zuu>Nickman: Maybe, maybe not... :) Squirrel is not like the most documented language out there. :)
15:26<svip>Awesome, glx. Now it works.
15:26<Nickman>glx, do you know how to return a pointer in Squirrel? :)
15:26<+glx>Nickman: no
15:27<Nickman>hmmmm :)
15:27<Zuu>Nickman: Have you checked the official documentation?
15:27<Nickman>nope, don't even know where to find it ;)
15:27<Nickman>found it :D
15:27<Nickman>I'll be looking around :)
15:27<Zuu>On the official website of squirrel, which requires basic google skills to find.
15:29<Rubidium>nckomodo: the basic protocol for the "basic" information is described in src/network/core/udp.h. The implementation in C(++) is in src/network/core/udp.cpp line 200 and further. There is a PHP implementation that reads the data too (somewhere on the forum). But I know absolutely nothing about lua

15:36<Nickman>I can't seem to find the pointer thingie...
15:36<DaleStan>But Rubidium's right; you can just as easily use a pure-graphics GRF, since it's going to be an Open-only thing.

15:40<Zuu>I guess you should keep as much as possible of your functionality in seperate functions and then it don't matter that much which way you go. The functions can easily be moved to/from landscape.cpp.
15:41<svip>I just need to find out where it draws the tiles.
15:42<svip>And then check if zoning is on, then call the "zone-drawer" function if true for that tile, and continue onward to the next tile.

20:00<Sacro>Eddi|zuHause: no, i figured it
20:00<Svish>loading doesnt help :S
20:01<Sacro>Eddi|zuHause: oh, i meant powers
20:01<Sacro>does a raised to the power b
20:01<Eddi|zuHause>Svish: take you head off the ↓ button
20:01<Sacro>equal b rasied to the a'th power
20:01<Eddi|zuHause>Sacro: of course not...
20:01<Svish>hm, helped to restart the game...
20:01<Svish>but what I really came here for was:
20:01<Eddi|zuHause>2*2*2 (=2^3) is something entirely different than 3*3 (=3^2)
20:02<Svish>is there a reason why that replace function doesnt work for trains later than tgv?
20:02<Eddi|zuHause>there are very rare exceptions... (like 2^4=4^2) but they are purely coincidental
20:03<Svish>I have TGV and Eurostar trains, but I can only auto-replace them with that post train BR'IC125'
20:03<Sacro>Eddi|zuHause: well that was the first one i thoguht of
20:03<Sacro>and it worked
20:03<Sacro>hence i just assumed it applied to all others
20:03<Eddi|zuHause>Svish: on the bottom, select "electric"

20:05<Svish>doh... I have replaced all the tgv and eurostars manually :S
20:06<Svish>Any advice when it comes to switching your whole rail system to monorail?
20:07<Eddi|zuHause>don't :p

21:07<magda>hello everybody
21:09|-|Greyscale [] has joined #openttd
21:09<Greyscale>I have some aircraft plying a few routes
21:09<Greyscale>but they don't appear to be making any aircraft income
21:09<magda>i have some problems with my ttd
21:10<Greyscale>regardless of everything else says that they made a large quantity of money
21:10<Greyscale>but I'm not getting the money
21:10<magda>when i build any station, nothing waits there
21:10<magda>i'm not sure what the problem is
21:11<magda>but i don't find people to be too helpful
21:11<magda>they don't even respond
21:11<Greyscale>magda, you need to set trains up so that they go to that station
21:11<Greyscale>you need to set the train's orders.
21:11<magda>i know
21:11<Greyscale>magda, you have to wait a bit on IRC to get a responce.
21:11<Greyscale>they're not watching this screen like vultures
21:12<magda>but usually when u build a station, even before u set the trains to go there, it shows u how much of the stuff waits there
21:12<magda>in my case there is nothing on any station i have built
21:13<magda>i had a different version of ttd before, and it worked fine
21:13<magda>then i had to reinstall my windows and i forgot to back up my ttd
21:14<Smoovious>magda... that's what TTDX did... OpenTTD doesn't
21:14<magda>the version i have got is not working properly
21:14<Smoovious>OpenTTD, you won't see cargoes show up at a station until there is a demand for it
21:14<magda>plus i set the option for the computer players as well
21:15<magda>and they didn't appear at all
21:15<Smoovious>computer players won't come out at exactly the time in the o ptions
21:15<Smoovious>that's just the minimum
21:15<magda>even if they were supposed to start half a year after me
21:15<Smoovious>they aren't "supposed' to start thten... only not supposed to start earlier than t hen
21:16<Greyscale>Smoovious, any idea about my no aircraft income issue?
21:17<magda>smoovious, is this some new version of ttd that works that way with this cargoes?
21:17<Smoovious>Greyscale... not really... look at your finances window... see what is costing you as much a s your aircraft is making
21:17<Smoovious>this isn't TTDX... this is OpenTTD
21:17<Greyscale>Smoovious, the aircraft says it has made 120000 this year
21:17<Greyscale>I've not seen a penny of it
21:17<Smoovious>look at the finances window...
21:17|-|Eddi|zuHause2 [] has quit [Remote host closed the connection]
21:17<Greyscale>I am.
21:17<Greyscale>about 3000 going out.
21:17<Greyscale>and NOTHING coming in
21:18<Smoovious>no minuses for contruction, new vehicles, etc?
21:18<Greyscale>its just flying from A to B, claiming to make money, then not.
21:18<Smoovious>dunno then
21:18<Greyscale>And I'm now broke.
21:19<Smoovious>just have to wait for one o f the devs...
21:19<Smoovious>whichh may be a while... most seem to be on EU time
21:19<Greyscale>actually, I'm not getting *any* money in now
21:19<Greyscale>not even my busses
21:19<Greyscale>which claim to be pulling lots of dough too
21:20<Smoovious>which version?
21:21<Smoovious>try 0.5.3-RC2... that's more current
21:21<Greyscale>here we go again!
21:22<Smoovious>magda... this isn't TTD... but sorta a next-generation of TTD... with a lot of changes... expansions... features... etc... you can't expect everything to work exactly lilke TTDX... the whole point of OpenTTD was to improve it...
21:24<Smoovious>well, maybe not the _whole_ point... but most of the point
21:24<magda>i did what u have suggested, i sent a train to some newly built station, and as soon as the train arrived, the station started to fill in with goods
21:25<magda>is there anything else that is so different from the old version, that i should be avare of?
21:25|-|Eddi|zuHause [] has joined #openttd
21:25<Smoovious>probably... too many to answer here... check the manual wiki on the website... it pretty much shows what's different there
21:27<magda>ok, sure i will
21:27<@Belugas>Greyscale, you should make sure you are nor using tranfers in your vehicl orders

21:29<Greyscale>another question
21:29<Greyscale>can I rotate the view ALA Sim City?
21:29<Greyscale>Smoovious, not quiet
21:30<Greyscale>thats a damn pain :|
21:31<@Belugas>no, it is TTD
21:31<@Belugas>any flavor of TTD has that
21:31<@Belugas>it would be way too much of a burden codewise-graphicswise to do so
21:33<@Belugas>don't sad-face me...
21:33<@Belugas>it is normal
21:33<Greyscale>no, this is a sad face: :<
21:33<Greyscale>this is a blank face: :|
21:33<Greyscale>this is a happy face :>
21:33<@Belugas>either way
21:33<Greyscale>it was a bit of a blank stare
21:33<Greyscale>anyway, I think this is because I am a moron
21:34<@Belugas>this is not Sim City. You have to change your perception of waht the game is
21:34<Greyscale>I know, Its just a pain to see around things some times
21:36<Greyscale>is the smoke pluming from my aircraft fatal?
21:36<Greyscale>now *thats* a quote...
21:37<Eddi|zuHause>it's only fatal if you see a red dot transforming into a mushroom cloud :)
21:37<Eddi|zuHause>the "normal" smoke just means the aircraft broke down and is moving at lower speed
21:37<Greyscale>hurruh, it works
21:37<Greyscale>Eddi|zuHause, thanks
21:38<Greyscale>also: How can I stop the popups from, youknow, popping..

22:09<Fang>a ping timeout?
22:10<Fang>dare I ask if that's like a 'linkloss' or 'idling out'?
22:12<@Belugas>totally dunno
22:12<Fang>oh well... I'll find out some day
22:20<Eddi|zuHause>in most cases it's the remnants of an unclean disconnection
22:21<Eddi|zuHause>(also called 'ghost')
22:21<Fang>so a link loss rather than idling out, gotcha
22:25<Fang>is this a normal state of this channel btw? or is it sometimes bustling with activity? (I'm not complaining, just wondering if I caught everyone busy at work or fast asleep)
22:27[~]Belugas is busy at debugging, and falling asleep at the same time
22:28<Fang>do I smell some funky typos and errors on the horizon? :P
