Catver.ini and other support files

Postby battlecat » Tue Apr 08, 2008 6:48 pm

I was sitting here thinking that it would be a real bonus to have a built in default catver.ini and other support files with Wah!Cade.

I realize that it would first off make the download bigger (but much more easy to startup with) and that it would also require the coder to update the catver.ini file once in a blue moon with the newest release of Wah!Cade. But lets face how often do you really need a bleeding edge catver.ini and if you do well then download it and re-direct the option in the Wah!Cade setup is how I feel about it.

But for those users who don't need bleeding edge just having some version of those files installed by default would make life a lot easier.

I agree. All those support files are downloadable from somewhere - why can't they just automatically be downloaded and installed as part of the .deb? The .deb files do that for all other dependencies after all. Where the these files are zipped, surely the package installer could just invoke the "unzip" command?

I really think that while it might mean a bit of bloat for the filesize it would make life much easier to just have them in the .deb file.

thanks

As long as we could get permission from whoever "owns" the files then I don't see why not...

I am not sure who "Owns" them but I think that we could ask the people who now maintain them. I can do that with an email tonight. Hows that sound?
