./openmw stops without any message

swick wrote: Hey all!
I have troubles starting openmw. I pulled the latest version form github, build it successfully but it just stops.

$ ./openmw
Using global config file: openmw.cfg
Using user config file: /home/sebastian/.config/openmw/openmw.cfg
No master file given. Assuming Morrowind.esm

...and then nothing and I dont understand why. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04.

PS: when it is running I want to help developing

swick wrote: You mean /openmw --debug? Same thing here...
Zini wrote: No. Run it through the debugger (gdb).

The --debug option is needed during debugging, because else the GUI can lock up.

well, never needed the debugger yet but I am hoping this is what you want ;)
Zini wrote: Unfortunately that doesn't get us anywhere. Okay, another try. Lets look at the OGRE log (Ogre.log). Depending on the version of OpenMW this can either be found in alongside the OpenMW executable or in ~/.config/openmw.

Any error messages? If not, can you please post the last couple of lines?

Zini wrote: Okay. That helps some. Apparently OpenMW dies during the OGRE initialisation. I can't make much sense of it yet, but there is probably something wrong with your OGRE installation.
swick wrote: You're right! Purged all ogre and boost packages, installed them again and now it works like a charm. Well, now I am (hopefully) ready to help you. Which task a beginner should take?
Zini wrote: Depends on your definition of beginner. Can you give a bit more information about your skills regarding the tools and languages we are using (C++, OGRE, boost, MyGUI, Bullet, cmake)?

I suggest to get the organisational parts out of the way first. From what I see you haven't forked OpenMW on github yet. You definitely need to familiarize yourself with git and github first.

Also, you need an account on our issue tracker tracker: http://bugs.openmw.org/
swick wrote: Forked on github and registered on bug tracker. Never worked on a real c++ project and never touched one of these libs but I am sure that I can help you on easy task... ;)
Zini wrote: We are kinda running out of entry level tasks. I have only one left. Well, first come, first served.

It's kinda boring. But if you want it, you can have it.

Did I already point you to our developer documentation? Sorry, so many newcomer in such a short timespan that I am losing track.

See especially the page marked as "must read".

I imagine there has to be a setting.

Nope - program, not project. :(

Eclipse has this feature, though. Eclipse isn't my choice for anything but generating classes in C++. MSVC is defaulted to #pragma once and looks terrible, while Eclipse uses #ifndef and does more generation.
best regards,
