I tested the el.ini on another PC as well. My sons play eternal lands on my desktop, which is also running karmic 64. I'm sure there is something with the laptop that is causing this as my wife's laptop, my desktop and my laptop are all running karmic and have eternal lands installed the same way. Only my laptop is having the trouble.

 

Thanks again for all your hard work!

OK, doubled checked the patch applied. :)

wget http://twinmoons.org.uk/el/el.showmess.karmic.64_3
chmod +x el.showmess.karmic.64_3
./el.showmess.karmic.64_3

None of the log files is any different. However, here is the terminal output.

None of the log files is any different. However, here is the terminal output.

...

OK. That looks like it's going to be useful. It may take me a few days to investigate further....

.... But not useful enough. I can't find anything amiss in that code. I'll put in a lot more targeted debug in another version if you're still game to resolve this. I might not get the chance to prepare the next version for a day or so.

I'm always game. If I knew more about SVN I'd download it and try it myself, but I'm only familiar with CVS. (I think thats the right one. One you only need a single command to get the latest full tree).

The client uses CVS so you're in luck! ;)

The thread here has some CVS checkout and build instructions for Ubuntu.

OK, I've followed the instructions. Everything compiles and runs. Still cannot see chat messages. I guess I can play with the make.defaults and try the different debug options. :D

 

Thanks!

OK, I've followed the instructions. Everything compiles and runs. Still cannot see chat messages. I guess I can play with the make.defaults and try the different debug options. :D

I'll make a patch file full of the debug I was planning. Then may be you could apply the patch and give it a whirl.....

Until then, I've uploaded a patch for the last debug we tried to my web site. Just apply/remove the patch while you're in the elc directory and rebuild the code. No point posting any output but it shows you were the code is misbehaving.

 

Apply the patch with:

wget -O - http://www.twinmoons.org.uk/el/raw_text_debug_2a | patch

 

Remove the patch with:

wget -O - http://www.twinmoons.org.uk/el/raw_text_debug_2a | patch -R

OK, I have some debug that you could use to patch and run the client. Hopefully, this time, we'll get somewhere....

 

If you have applied the other patch, make sure you undo the change before applying this patch. Either user the patch -R command as above or delete the changed files and do a "cvs update".

 

wget -O - http://www.twinmoons.org.uk/el/raw_text_debug_3a | patch
make -f Makefile.linux
./el.x86.linux.bin

 

The patch will only produce output from a single message, the monster count. You can repeat the debug by using the "#il" console command.

 

Edit: I modified the patch (3 -> 3a) but hopefully before you saw this message.

A couple of other files seem to have been 'touched' but not changed in any way I can see. They are connection_log.txt, counters_greydesk.dat, el.cfg, el.ini, infos.log, recipes_greydesk.dat and spells_greydesk.dat

 

Thanks again for all your hard work!

OK, finally had time to try this out on the laptop. Here is the output from the terminal.....

Well, that clearly points the finger at the safe_snprintf() function of asc.c which is basically just a call to the c library function vsnprintf(). The parameters passed into the function look perfectly fine and exactly the same as on my system which works. I'm going to be busy with personal stuff until Wednesday but after that I'll investigate further.

Any word yet? I still have the same trouble. Is it possible my compiler version or something is wrong? A system environmental setting?

Sorry I didn't get back to you. I still have no further ideas. I had forgotten about this recently so I'll have another think. You were running versions I compiled that worked fine for me so it can't be the compiler. Your environment? May be. Have you tried running from a live CD? Have you tried the lasted release candidate build (eternallands-rc package or the static binary + data)?
