Binary Plus A Data Directory Full Of Files -> Ipk
« on: October 18, 2007, 01:09:43 pm »
Hello,

I've been chatting with Capn_Fish about this...

What is the standard (or perhaps the best standard) to follow when creating a package that has a binary with a data directory full of files.
If it's a game is it best to put the binary in:
/usr/local/gamename
and then put the 'data' folder in there too, then create a script (in /usr/local/bin) that cd's into /usr/local/gamename and runs the binary?

I ended up using /usr/local/share/games/gamename
...as I saw the bomberclone directory in there.
