I compiled SDL with iconv support and all is compiling fine.
Now I'm facing the save path trouble again.
in config.h I defined this :
#define FREECIV_PATH "~/Documents/Freeciv/saves", "/Applications/
Freeciv", "~/Documents/Freeciv/data", "~/Documents/Freeciv/share"
when doing this got no errors but can't load or save games.
So I hacked shared.c as I did in previous beta4 (that was why, I
guess, load games didn't work, because I hacked shared.c in client
but not in server, now I'm working with same files so it's unlikely
same mistake will occur).
at line 856 :
path = "~/Documents/Freeciv/saves"; /* getenv("FREECIV_PATH"); */
but while this is working with beta4, in beta6 an error pops :
1: Could not find home directory (HOME is not set)
So here are my questions :
-How does Freeciv get the $HOME environment variable (through which
lib or header?)
-Why is getenv not taking my multiple FREECIV_PATH ? or why is path
not defined by getenv("FREECIV_PATH")?
