03:23 OldCoder rickmcfarley, I have no plans to visit Florida in the short term though this could change
03:24 OldCoder Texas is more likely
03:24 OldCoder What is more of an issue is that he or others will join IRC as 0ldcoder
03:24 OldCoder Note the 0 as opposed to the O
03:25 VanessaE easily solved - use nickserv to group that nick now while you're thinking about it.
03:41 rickmcfarley Yeah Florida seems nice now. I'm in New Hampshire

10:48 whtemple1959 hello room, I am looking for ver 4.12 for Linux but seem to be misdirected from the download page. can any one point me inthe right direction?
11:21 theTroy joined #minetest
11:27 msantana whtemple1959: which linux distribution do you use?
11:38 msantana whtemple1959: anyway http://www.minetest.net/download#linux
11:40 CWz_ joined #minetest
11:41 whtemple1959 msantana: I use mint 17 and the links on those pages go to vers 4.10 not 4.12
11:55 msantana whtemple1959: I understand, but do you really need the latest version?
11:56 ElectronLibre Having the latest version is important.
11:57 whtemple1959 msantana: I am exploring this game  and one of the mods requires vers 4.12 as a new guy to Liux I am having trouble reconciling why there is a win vers 4.12 but not a Linux vers 4.12. seems to me the OS community would support Linux first and win tertiary
11:57 ElectronLibre The devs themselves advise to upgrade quickly, especially because there will probably be a protocol break in the next release and servers needs to send special informations to masterserver (public servers) to avoid incompatibility with future clients.
11:58 ElectronLibre If there is no way you can get 0.4.12 binaries for you distribution... you have to compile it by yourself.
12:02 ElectronLibre Try this => http://dev.minetest.net/Compil​ing_Minetest#Compiling_on_GNU.2FLinux
12:04 msantana ElectronLibre: Thanks for your information. I didn't know that was so important to use the latest version.
12:04 whtemple1959 ElectronLibre: you will laugh and mumble many things but I have ratrely been successful at compliing anything so I try to stay away from that task. the question remains though why does the OpenSource community seem to be more interested in supporting windows rather than Linux?
12:06 ElectronLibre I think it's maybe because they compile more often and simply on Linux, it doesn't bother them. But on Windows, compiling is like hell, so the binaries are given on minetest.net .
12:07 msantana whtemple1959: The packaging maintenance is a task supported by distributions not by minetest or other application
12:07 ElectronLibre But if you're bothered by compiling, there are scripts very well made to do this automatically.
12:08 ElectronLibre ^ Yes and there is also what msantana says.
12:08 whtemple1959 ElectronLibre: to be honest this is only the beginning of my many questions. but you statement bring up the basic issue of Linux "coders" and their arogance at not considering those of use who cannot programm but desire a better option than windows
12:09 whtemple1959 EL & Msantana: but then as an accountant I do tend to see the world in black and red
12:14 whtemple1959 msantana &EL I have to get ready to take my son to school I will be back later...I have so many questions
12:15 ElectronLibre Ok no problem, we are here to answer them as well as we can.
12:17 whtemple1959 EL: I will be back at 9am est
12:20 msantana whtemple1959: see you later :)

16:26 Neolink2 I/m sorry
16:27 Neolink2 2 last report is invalid
16:27 VanessaE Neolink2: anyway, go to a pastebin and put the debug.txt there if it has crash messages in it.
16:27 VanessaE then give us the link to it

16:30 ElectronLibre https://pastebin.ubuntu.com <= paste the last lines in that, you don't need to send the whole file, just the end.
16:31 ElectronLibre That's all? 7 lines?
16:31 Neolink2 yes
16:33 ElectronLibre Ok... ._. You're using Windows right?
16:33 Neolink2 yes
16:33 ImQ009 joined #minetest
16:33 ElectronLibre Are you using 0.4.12 release?
16:33 Neolink2 v.0.4.9 and 0.4.10 work well.
16:34 Pest joined #minetest
16:34 ElectronLibre Yes but are these lines from 0.4.12?
16:35 Neolink2 yes
16:35 Neolink2 And it in 0.4.11
16:36 VanessaE if you were running 0.4.12, there should have been a "mini crash dump" somewhere
16:36 ElectronLibre VanessaE: Please help me I have no idea about what happened to him ._.
16:36 VanessaE either in youre debug.txt or in a separate file
16:37 VanessaE open your debug.txt in a good text editor (something that can handle hundreds-of-megabyte files, just in case), and pastebin the last 100 lines
16:37 VanessaE there's no way that there was only 7 lines written to it
16:38 VanessaE your*
16:39 Neolink2 The whole file is composed of repetitive messages.
16:41 VanessaE that's fine
16:41 VanessaE just give us the last 100 lines

16:53 Calinou hi
16:53 VanessaE Neolink2: please use an english pastebin.
16:53 VanessaE not something that demands us to "download" the paste
16:54 CaveJohnson yeah not really a pastebin at all, just a file sharing site

16:56 Neolink2 https://gist.github.com/ano​nymous/05158c6aa78abfb4b239
16:56 ElectronLibre O_o
16:56 ElectronLibre Ok, so indeed, only seven lines.
16:57 VanessaE Neolink2:  please look at the dump file it points to
16:57 VanessaE is it in binary or text?
16:57 Neolink2 2 last lines turned out because of lack of memory.
16:57 VanessaE it should be in the same directory as the debug.txt
16:58 VanessaE lack of memory??
16:58 VanessaE what subgame are you playing?
16:58 VanessaE (minetest_game, dreambuilder, carbone, BFD, ...?)
16:58 Neolink2 C:\Games\minetest-0.4.12\bin\minetest.exe
16:59 Neolink2 i mean i have a little memory
16:59 VanessaE that's the engine.  I meant the subgame i.e. what's in C:\Games\minetest-0.4.12\games
16:59 VanessaE how much memory do you have?
17:01 Neolink2 500 Mb
17:01 VanessaE Ok, try this:  open  C:\Games\minetest-0.4.12\minetest.conf  in notepad or so, go to the end of the file and add:  enable_mesh_cache = false   save the file and run the engine/game again.
17:02 Neolink2 i have not a mineyest.conf
17:02 VanessaE find it.
17:02 VanessaE well, no
17:02 Neolink2 only minetest.conf.example
17:02 VanessaE it may not have been created.
17:02 VanessaE make a new one.
17:02 VanessaE create a new file,  C:\Games\minetest-0.4.12\minetest.conf
17:03 VanessaE add that one option to it,  enable_mesh_cache = false
17:03 VanessaE save the file
17:03 VanessaE run the engine/game again

17:05 Calinou Windows XP is not supported, Neolink2
17:05 Neolink2 i don't belive u
17:07 ElectronLibre RIP XP.
17:07 Calinou well, Microsoft says it is not supported since April 2014
17:08 VanessaE officially, minetest supports it though
17:08 Neolink2 I from Russia
17:08 VanessaE but Windows XP has been at end-of-life since last year
17:08 Neolink2 We only use pirated copies and never let them update
17:08 VanessaE meanwhile, 512MB of RAM is insufficient.
17:08 rubenwardy joined #minetest
17:08 VanessaE so then switch to something other than Windows that you don't have to pirate.
17:09 VanessaE we will not help you with your OS.
17:09 VanessaE but we can try to help with Minetest maybe.
17:09 VanessaE now about the configuration change I gave you, did it help at all?
17:09 Neolink2 No
17:09 VanessaE still out of memory?
17:12 VanessaE Neolink2: more timely answers are required.
17:12 VanessaE Also which minetest build are you using?
17:12 VanessaE there are four on the website.
17:12 VanessaE http://minetest.net/download
17:12 Neolink2 Memory missing. After all, there is still file swap
17:13 Neolink2 I use recomended build
17:13 VanessaE which is?
17:13 VanessaE there are two "recommended" builds.
17:14 VanessaE as for swap, that only works if no single program tries to allocate more memory than you have physical RAM.
17:14 rubenwardy Linux might free up some more RAM#
17:15 Calinou wrong, rubenwardy
17:15 Calinou except if you use really lightweight distribution
17:15 Calinou XP uses almost no RAM
17:15 rubenwardy Yeah, I did mean that
17:15 rubenwardy Really?
17:15 Calinou yep
17:15 Calinou it can function with 256 MB of RAM
17:15 rubenwardy Impressive
17:15 STHGOM joined #minetest
17:15 Neolink2 andMSVC builds
17:16 Calinou try that with Lubuntu or such
17:16 Neolink2 And this line on a lable
17:16 VanessaE Neolink2: you tried all four of the builds listed there?
17:16 Neolink2 http://hostingkartinok.com/show-image.p​hp?id=c19bb99f06b508476cfd57c2b15e8d10
17:17 VanessaE that looks like a corrupted copy to me
17:17 Neolink2 I had tried 2 build i have x86
17:17 exio4 Calinou: I've used debian+kde3 with 196mb of ram, and debian+xfce with 256mb without (more than XP) problems here
17:17 VanessaE it's no wonder it doesn't run
17:17 VanessaE Neolink2: you got bigger problems
17:18 VanessaE minetest only uses 60 or so megs at startup
17:18 VanessaE if you can't even run the menu without corruption, there's something wrong with the copy you downloaded
17:18 VanessaE you are using a pirated OS
17:18 VanessaE sorry, Neolink2.  you're fucked.
17:19 rubenwardy Get a new computer, basically.
17:19 Calinou might be too old graphics card too
17:19 VanessaE Calinou: too old to display a PNG image?
17:19 VanessaE I doubt it
17:20 VanessaE (besides, that would have thrown an irrlicht error at least)
17:20 VanessaE (I mean when trying to create a directx visual)
17:20 rubenwardy Maybe try software rendering? Would that make a difference?
17:21 VanessaE rubenwardy: not in the main menu?
17:21 rubenwardy The main menu still does 3D rendering
17:21 rubenwardy Clouds
17:21 VanessaE for the clouds yeah
17:21 VanessaE but that doesn't explain the header image being corrupted
17:21 rubenwardy True
17:27 Krock joined #minetest
17:29 Neolink2 well i'ii play on the 0.4.10
17:31 Krock Neolink2, I use Windows XP aswell - no problems here
17:31 ElectronLibre (But are you using a pirated copy?)
17:32 VanessaE Neolink2: 0.4.10 is obsolete, many servers very soon won't let you connect
17:32 Krock ElectronLibre, I used WPAkill
17:32 VanessaE three of mine for example
17:32 Neolink2 I from Russia
17:32 VanessaE I don't care if you're from Cucamonga.
17:32 VanessaE Pirating windows is stupid.
17:33 VanessaE use a free OS, or pay for a proper one, or gtfo
17:33 Calinou “pirating”
17:33 VanessaE there's no excuse to pirate windows.
17:33 Calinou Publishers often refer to copying they don't approve of as “piracy.” In this way, they imply that it is ethically equivalent to attacking ships on the high seas, kidnapping and murdering the people on them. Based on such propaganda, they have procured laws in most of the world to forbid copying in most (or sometimes all) circumstances. (They are still pressuring to make these prohibitions more complete.)
17:33 Calinou If you don't believe that copying not approved by the publisher is just like kidnapping and murder, you might prefer not to use the word “piracy” to describe it. Neutral terms such as “unauthorized copying” (or “prohibited copying” for the situation where it is illegal) are available for use instead. Some of us might even prefer to use a positive term such as “sharing information with your neighbor.”
17:33 ElectronLibre There is no use to pirate windows.
17:33 Krock holy text
17:33 Krock Neolink2, are you using the newest video driver? What's the output in your debug.txt with a log level of 3 or 4?
17:34 Neolink2 Krock:  no
17:34 VanessaE I don't even care about the copyright infringement as XP is abandonware now, but the fact that he chooses to pirate it instead of going with a good quality free OS is where I have the problem.
17:35 Neolink2 Kray: what is level 3...?
17:35 VanessaE debug_log_level = 4
17:35 VanessaE in minetest.conf
17:35 Krock tab error - level 3 is #    0 = none, 1 = errors and debug, 2 = action, 3 = info, 4 = verbose.

18:34 LazyJ How does Minetest's cache handle nodes from different versions of the same mod from different servers, i.e. one server has an old version of the mod where the node uses nodeboxes and another server uses the newer version that uses mesh nodes? Is a new file created in the cache for each or is the existing file over written each time when joining the other servers?

18:43 VanessaE no new what?
18:43 farfadet46 sorry for minetest 0.5 ;)
18:44 VanessaE LazyJ: the cache only keeps images and I think .obj etc models and yeah, it differentiates from one mod version to another by way of hashing the files
18:44 VanessaE farfadet46: 0.5 is coming sometime or another soon, meanwhile 0.4.12 is out.
18:45 farfadet46 yep i aldready have the 0.4.12 ;)

18:48 VanessaE he's working on the network protocol but I have no idea of the timeline for it because he hasn't been around when I am lately.
18:48 farfadet46 ok no problem ;)
18:49 farfadet46 i'm a french teacher for children age 7-12 year old
18:49 farfadet46 and i think the exe in the bin folder isn't easy for him
18:50 VanessaE when I was 12 I was already coding
18:50 farfadet46 have you an idea to make it easier ?
18:50 VanessaE your kids are smarter than you think.  if you're a teacher, teach them.
18:51 VanessaE the trick of course is breaking through their resistance to learning.  you know, "this is stupid!" "why do I have to do it THAT way" etc etc even when it isn't stupid.
18:51 VanessaE they all think their tablets/phones are the pinnacle of computing.
18:52 farfadet46 yes you are right !
18:53 LazyJ Ok, thanks, VanessaE ;)
18:53 farfadet46 in my contry ( poor french city ) the parent are allergic to computer :(
18:53 farfadet46 country*
18:54 VanessaE farfadet46: it's the same in the US
18:54 VanessaE parents are lazy when it comes to computers
18:54 farfadet46 yes and i try my best to the parent to clear her idea about the computer
18:54 VanessaE (I recognize that people have limited time, but I also recognize when people are just fucking lazy about it)
18:55 farfadet46 but the media are not our friend about computer
18:55 VanessaE the media aren't our friends about anything :)
18:55 farfadet46 Yes ;)
18:55 farfadet46 ok i need to go ...
18:56 farfadet46 bye and thank for your time :)
18:56 VanessaE ok, see you later then.  good luck with your students
18:56 farfadet46 thanks
18:56 farfadet46 and you do nice mods ;) thanks for all that :)

21:10 Miner_48er whtemple1959 did you install all of the dependencies in the readme?
21:11 ripdisk uh

21:13 whtemple1959 Miner: I am sorry but the deb file I downloaded did not come with a redme. but on a side note if a person is going to the trouble to create a deb file why would they choose to leave out dependencies? that is sort of building a car and leaving out the transmission don't ya think?
21:14 Miner_48er where did you download the deb file from?
21:15 fz72 joined #minetest
21:16 ripdisk yeah
21:16 ripdisk i have no idea what's going on. i"Ve never touched sqllite
21:16 ripdisk it's installed, but when i try to cmake it's just not working
21:18 LazyJ I'm trying out this new F8 "cinematic view" but I can't figure out what is supposed to be different. What is it supposed to do?
21:18 Miner_48er ripdisk error?
21:22 LazyJ ripdisk, download the engine and game from GitHub either as clones or as zip files. Then use the README's "sudo apt-get" line that includes all the dependencies. After that run the cmake with the server build option instead of the client.
21:22 LazyJ The cmake build options are listed in the README too.
21:27 LazyJ Hm. So far the cinematic view make the display lag behind the mouse movement. This is supposed to be an improvement?
21:32 whtemple1959 Miner: https://packages.debian.org​/sid/i386/minetest/download
21:35 ripdisk LazyJ: , i just did all that.
21:35 ripdisk same errors.
21:36 LazyJ Hmm...
21:36 LazyJ Scrolling back through the chat.... You said you couldn't find Minetest?
21:38 LazyJ I use the zip files. After extracting, rename "minetest-master" and "minetest_game-master" to just "minetest" and "minetest_game". Then move "minetest_game" into the /minetest/games/ directory.
21:39 LazyJ Then I go back to the /minetest directory and open a terminal there.
21:40 LazyJ In the terminal I do the "sudo apt-get <stuff>" to make sure my dependencies are up-to-date.
21:40 LazyJ Then I run this cmake for *client** build:
21:40 LazyJ cmake . -DRUN_IN_PLACE=1 -DENABLE_FREETYPE=ON -DENABLE_CURL=ON -DBUILD_CLIENT=1 -DENABLE_GLES=1 -DENABLE_SOUND=ON -DENABLE_GETTEXT=1 -DENABLE_LEVELDB=1
21:41 LazyJ The "-DENABLE_LEVELDB=1" won't work if you don't have LevelDB installed.
21:42 LazyJ "-DBUILD_SERVER=1" is what to use for a server setup instead of "-DBUILD_CLIENT=1".
21:43 LazyJ The "-DRUN_IN_PLAC=1" will build Minetest in that directory and not spread it out in various places in your system.
21:44 LazyJ No "/usr/share/some_parts_here", no "./hidden_folder_of_minetest",... everything stays together with RUN_IN_PLACE making it easier to keep an eye on Minetest things.
21:45 LazyJ Ok, done typing that wall-o-text. ;)-

23:08 whtemple1959 LadyJ: I am sorry I am so knew I must be blind I have been to this site and have not seena repository that I can put into my sources.list to install the server from
23:10 LazyJ This isn't an apt or yum repository. You have to compile it from the source code.
23:10 Miner_48er whtemple1959 ^
23:10 LazyJ Minetest isn't in all linux distributions' repositories and several of those that do have it are out-of-date.
23:11 VanessaE whtemple1959: if you can't spell "new" and figure out the difference between a git repository and an apt repository, I'm not sure you are ready to run a server.
23:11 whtemple1959 LazyJ: sorry chubby fingers...that is why I hate command line procedures... I ahve gone back to here https://packages.debian.org/sid/minetest-server and although it will take all night to insure all dependencies are met I will work through them all and then install the server
23:11 Neolink2 joined #minetest
23:11 whtemple1959 Vanessa: yea your right
23:12 VanessaE whtemple1959: just follow the README, from this spot:  https://github.com/minetest/mine​test/blob/master/README.txt#L102
23:12 VanessaE it's just copy&paste.
23:12 LazyJ There is also a "sticky" post or two on forum.minetest.net -> "Servers" forum that will contain more bits of info.
23:12 VanessaE except that someone wasn't paying attention to line lengths in that doc, so make sure that line 106 is copied in full
23:16 whtemple1959 VanessaE: I just wanted to enjoy a common game with my son without him sitting in my lap and silly me thought that putting a mintest server on my file server so he and I could play together on cold winter days was a good idea. of cours as always Linux throws too many curves for this old dog to understand
23:18 VanessaE you don't need to compile the server for that
23:19 VanessaE you can use the client to launch a local server also
23:19 est31 compiling the server is only neccessary if you need to execute it on a box that doesn't have Xorg dependencies installed
23:22 STHGOM joined #minetest
23:23 LazyJ Start Minetest as usual on your strongest computer, then click on the "Server" tab, select the world you wish to run (you might have to start one first in client mode if you don't have one already), fill in your player name and password in the appropriate fields (to the left), then click on the "Start Game" button.
23:23 NekoGloop joined #minetest
23:23 whtemple1959 VanessaE: please do not laugh. I did try that from the start but our old broken down PCs just could not handle running a server and a client at the same time. I do hope that Santa will be able to bring us newer PCs for Yule.. if I were a character i the game you would see me banging my head aganst some blocks.
23:24 VanessaE whtemple1959: then you did it wrong :)  because that's exactly how Minetest already runs in "singleplayer" mode.
23:25 VanessaE when you launch the client, go to the "server" tab and plug in a username and password for yourself to use as the admin, give a port number to run the server on.  select a world to run, click "start game".
23:25 LazyJ From that point start Minetest on another computer that is connected to your home network. On *that* computer go to the "Client" tab, enter a different playername and password then in the "Address" field enter "localhost" and the Port should be 30000 (default).
23:25 VanessaE tell your kid to connect to your machine's LAN IP at that port
23:25 VanessaE tell him to sign in with his own name and a password you two can remember.
23:25 VanessaE done.
23:27 whtemple1959 VanessaE: it does not surprise me...in the least. let me step away and re-attempt to make it work I will take notes and come back. Thank you VanessaE and LazyJ...to be continued.
23:27 LazyJ Good luck  ;)
23:28 LazyJ Ah, crud.
23:28 LazyJ Not "localhost" but the IP of the computer you want to connect to.
23:29 LazyJ "localhost" is for testing two Minetests running on the same machine (useful for testing mods in a server setup).
23:30 LazyJ whtemple1959, it will take several tries to get things figured out. Minetest is a bit convoluted.
23:31 LazyJ and too sparce in the useful documentation department for most of us.

23:41 iio7 I have tested with vanilla, is this a known issue?
23:44 LazyJ iio7, try enabling TNT in your minetest.conf. From the /minetest/game/minetest_game/minetest.conf.example (different from the engine's "minetest.conf.example"):
23:44 est31 TNT is disabled by default iio7
23:44 LazyJ # Whether the TNT mod should be enabled
23:44 LazyJ #enable_tnt = <true in singleplayer, false in multiplayer>
23:44 est31 so turn off minetest edit the file LazyJ mentioned and start minetest again
23:45 iio7 Ah, of course, thank you very much!
