Hi,
I'm trying to install openttd from the feed (openttd-0.4.0-r0). I added the missing files from the original ttd, but when I try to run it, i get:

Error: No available language packs
Your sample.cat file is corrupted or missing!

any ideas?
YoG
got it... some missing files in the package, and ill-defined path.

first, the missing files:
autorail.grf
canalsw.grf
dosdummy.grf
openttd.grf
opentitle.dat
signalsw.grf
trkfoundw.grf

Apperantly openttd searches for the "data" folder in "usr/share/games/openttd/data" and not "/usr/share/games/openttd/data". So the game has to be ran from the root ("/") directory or else the game won't find the "data" folder.

p.s.
You must have these files from the original ttd game:
trg1r.grf
trgcr.grf
trghr.grf
trgir.grf
trgtr.grf
sample.cat

Glad you got it sorted out.

Are the missing files ones that are required from the game, or are they freely available (and therefore should be added to the ipk)?

Also, does the path thing affect running the program from the desktop icon?

Now that you mention that, I think that the files that are in the package are the copywrited ones... I'm not sure though, this should be verified.

what desktop icon? I didn't have any desktop icon installed, after working around the bug I wrote one myself.
