Bug in 0.95.6: 'drop n whatever reports "Nothing to drop"
Over the last day or so I completely(?) removed all traces of CF 0.95.x
(other than the tar files) from my Linux system, re-loaded the 0.95.6
client, server, and maps files, re-configured, and re-installed, This
time I installed as a normal user, as opposed to my initial installation
of 0.95.6 which was done as 'root'.
Recreation: I create a new character ('Dave the human'), enable
scrolling, and try to drop one of some object I have multiple copies of.
For example, if I have 23 silver coins, I enter:
'drop 1 silver and the system responds with
Nothing to drop
Is anyone else seeing this problem?
Not only is this frequently inconvenient, I would _swear_ that it was
working correctly the first time I installed CF 0.95.6. There is, as
with all "bugs", the chance I didn't clear out _something_ that I should
have, so here are the steps I followed:
Note: On both installs, I set --prefix=/var/games/crossfire
- Exit client
- Kill currently running server
- su root
rm -R crossfire
rm -R maps (had a copy sitting there)
rm -R crossfire-*
rm -R sounds
- Exiting 'su', back as 'frank'
mv .crossfire old2.crossfire (just in case)
This _looked_ like it ought to have removed all traces of my previous
installation. Is there anything else I might have overlooked in my
server: SuSE Linux 6.4, 486DX4-100, 32 Mb RAM
client: same machine (X11 client)
Crossfire 0.95.6 public release.
Tried to report this to 'bugzilla', but it's not aware of 0.95.6 yet.
