Update linux nightly?
« on: January 27, 2016, 04:50:26 am »
Hello,

I'm trying to update my linux nightly build using these instructions:

Code: [Select]
cd ~/OpenXcom_dev/src
git pull
make -f Makefile.simple clean
make -f Makefile.simple

Unfortunately, when I do the "git pull" I get the following error:
Code: [Select]
error: Your local changes to the following files would be overwritten by merge:
bin/standard/xcom1/soldiers.rul
Please, commit your changes or stash them before you can merge.
Aborting

Does anyone know how I can fix this and continue with my update? Are these instructions correct?

Thanks!
Matt

According to compile with make you are doing it correct (even more than strictly required). And kudo's for using pull, instead of clone for updating.

Personally i prefer Cmake as build system. In that case an update would be (assuming your already inside OpenXcom_dev, and using out-of-source builds )
Code: [Select]
git pull
cd build
cmake -L .. # Enforces updating of git-version string and displays current build settings.
make

Now back to the actual problem at hand. I suspect you made some manual changes to "soldiers.rul". In that case you probably want to keep those changes. The easiest solution would be:
Code: [Select]
git stash
git pull
git stash pop  # And hope no merge conflicts arise
The smart solution would be to move those changes to a personal-mod after which you can (forcefully) reset the local repository with
Code: [Select]
git reset --hard
Please note this command will throw away all personal modifications not committed to a git-branch of your own.

Good luck

Thanks so much! It says it is offline for maintenance but as soon as it is back up I'll give it a try.

Hmm, it looked like it was going to work and then I got this:

You were probably unlucky, it looks like it is fixed in commit a55d90b.

As a sidenode, it might be handy if you mention the commit when such a problem arises. It makes it a lot easier to check if it still needs attention.

No problem, we all have to learn.

Glad it works. Enjoy
