^1Error: file ui/pregame.menu, line 1: file ui/menddef.h not found

Classic bug - anyone has some ideas?

@OK100: well you'll have to apply the patch anyway. I explain the whole procedure here: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=137208 and still plan to provide a PKGFILE when I find a little time.

I have the same issue as @santodelaespada, but I'm on 32bit arch

I can confirm that the patch given at https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4331 allows RTCW to run correctly on x86_64 (you need to apply it to iortcw sources, note the path of the files is a bit different from ioquake). I think that the wolf binaries are now broken on 64 bit platforms (there is also a crash specific to 64 bit with the flamethrowing monsters in the catacomb) and the only way is to use iortcw sources. There is a good attempt to revive rtcw there: http://code.google.com/p/bzzwolfsp/. It works properly on my machine and has sound. You need to compile it as a 32 bit app though (as explained in http://code.google.com/p/bzzwolfsp/issues/detail?id=3).

It seems this is a problem with x86_64 and the new glibc, as discussed there:

https://bugzilla.icculus.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4331

Funny this was reported in 2010 but I did not notice the problem until after you reported it (have not played it for a while). I have tried recompilig iortcw with the same issue. So maybe it is time to patch the iortcw source and use that one only.

------- sound initialization -------
/dev/dsp: No such file or directory
Could not open /dev/dsp
I get the following error

------------------------------------
Sound memory manager started
Sys_LoadDll(/opt/wolf/main/uii386.so)... ok
Sys_LoadDll(ui) found **vmMain** at 0xae5e3778
Sys_LoadDll(ui) succeeded!
Parsing menu file:ui/mai..menu
Parsing menu file:ui/setup.menu
^1Error: file ui/setup.menu, line 1: file ui/menddef.h not found <--- All like this one
Parsing menu file:ui/controls.menu
^1Error: file ui/controls.menu, line 1: file ui/menddef.h not found <--- Here is another one
... and so on

I get the id software animation and afterwards just the console displaying the errors related to "ui/menddef.h"

when I look inside "sp_pak1.pk3" there is a file named "ui/menudef.h". Could it be a typo ?
I unzipped "sp_pak1.pk3";
did "cp ui/menudef.h ui/menddef.h";
rezipped and replaced sp_pak1.pk3 and the GUI attempts to launch. I get a cursor over the background.

hello,
the download link for "wolf-linux-1.41b.x86.run" is broken.
please update
thanks

Hi Slash, yes that would be my aim. However, I will not be able to work on it before the next week. My only concern is that the executable CRC is not the same than the original. Firstly, wolfsp-sdl-sound does not work so there is no soun d at the moment. My second concern is Punkbuster: will it work with the recompiled binaries? If not, multiplayer would be unplayable.
