|0004146||Dwarf Fortress||Technical -- General||public||2011-03-06 12:37||2014-09-23 12:08|
|Status||resolved||Resolution||no change required|
|Platform||Debian 'Sid' 64Bit x86||OS||Debian Linux||OS Version||Sid amd64|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0004146: Game unable to start due to "main index file missing/corrupted"|
|Description||This bug originates in 0.31.19; .18 worked fine. |
When trying to start the game, after it loads the keybindings from data/init/interface.txt it exits with the following dialog message:
Main index file missing/corrupted. The file "index" must be in the "data" folder. Make sure DF decompressed into its folders properly.
|Steps To Reproduce||1) Install Dwarf Fortress on a 64-bit linux system|
2) copy over 32-bit variants of the libraries it needs into df_linux/lib until it no longer fails on missing libraries.
3) Attempt to launch the game.
According to MD5 checksums, the index file is identical to one on a different 32-bit linux install which works fine.

Reminder sent to: kaosdrachen
Did you unzip a new version of the game on top of a previous installation?
|No, I explicitly renamed the existing (working) version to df_old before unpacking the new version to its own directory.|
|Have you tried installing the libraries on your system instead of copying them into df_linux/lib? I don't know if copying libraries into there is recommended.|
The libraries aren't the problem. If they were the binary wouldn't be able to even execute because of missing/incompatible symbols.
The game starts, reads its config files, tries to read data/index and throws up the above error.
|I didn't mean that libraries are executing incorrectly, I meant that the index file seems to function as a manifest and you may be throwing it off by including new files in the lib folder. Try installing them with your system libs instead.|
|If it's a manifest, is there a way to rebuild it in situ?|
|Copying the index file from the old DF seems to have worked, although it is complaining a lot about missing keybinds and the escape key doesn't seem to interrupt the intro movie anymore.|
