Summary0003091: Problems when specifying different directory for binary in Config
DescriptionWhen specifying a different directory for the binary you receive a error such as this...

(courtesy of Neronix)
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/r3b0rn3/Unreal3.2/src/modules'
make[2]: Nothing to be done for `all'.
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/r3b0rn3/Unreal3.2/src/modules'
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/r3b0rn3/Unreal3.2/src'
| Compile is now complete. |
| You should now read the documentation and learn |
| how to configure your IRCd. |

| read the Unreal.nfo file. |
/usr/bin/install -m 0700 -d /home/r3b0rn3/eliptex
/usr/bin/install -m 0700 src/ircd /home/r3b0rn3/eliptex/src/ircd
/usr/bin/install: cannot create regular file `/home/r3b0rn3/eliptex/src/ircd': No such file or directory
make: *** [install] Error 1

This can be resolved easily with a patch to Config,,, (provided on this page), or simply creating the directory manually.

This patch however will not permit you to change the name of the ircd binary file itself
Steps To ReproduceSpecify a path to the Unreal binary with at least 1 directory deeper than DATADIR, or to a path which does not already exist.
Additional InformationTo use the patch, put Unreal.patch into you Unreal3.2 directory (adjacent to Config), and type patch -p0 <Unreal.patch
TagsNo tags attached.

Some people (like me and another bug reporter a few days ago) like to give different binary names, though :p.

But I like the reminder at the rephrasing of certain text in ./Config (I know, offtopic).

As for the "directory is not created" thing, I *think* this is already in the bugtracker, aquanight was having a look at it at least...
(I know, horrible bugs navigation atm :P)

I'll keep this bug open till I get the rewording done ("What directory *do you want to install* ...".

On another side note, I never understood why people wanted their ircd in 'src/ircd' and not just 'ircd' :P. But I agree Unreal should create the directory if it doesn't exist, like for situations when 'bin/ircd' is used.
