July 16th, 2004, 07:19 AM
Besdies Mouse Button Control feeling lagged on my main system.
I can host games, but I cant join them with the linux lsdldoom client. I run it in a terminal and it says it cannont create $$$.sav. Most likley permissions. Is it a save file? Its deathmatch. Do I need a save file?
I run it as root and everything works.
What do I need to chmod etc?

maybe chmodding the legacy dir might solve your problem. Also, be sure you have rwx access in /tmp.
I'll look tonight (if I don't forget) if it might be a bug in Legacy (I don't remember where Legacy try to create file)

Does it save any files in /temp?
I should probably just chown the whole /usr/local/games directory to the group games?
I quess in the back of my mind of knew/plannign I was going to do that, but I quess I forgot.
I dont know why I started this thread, I could have fixed it myself. I blame my cat.

Well, no. If you had the problem it's probably because of a Legacy bug. What if you run the game from a CD-Rom? You would probably have the same problem.
When you start a net game, Legacy do a savegame and send it to all the players. Legacy should create it in the /tmp directory.
But what I said should fix the problem until we release a new version without that issue.
