Summary0003232: Doomseeker installs architecture-dependent engine libraries to arch-independent directory
DescriptionDoomseeker installs and looks for engine libraries from architecture independent directory /usr/share/doomseeker/engines.

/usr/share is reserved for architecture-independent files in the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. The engine libraries currently in /usr/share/doomseeker/engines are architecture dependent ELF binary objects and should be under /usr/lib structure instead.

Lintian tag: arch-dependent-file-in-usr-share (severity serious, certainty certain)
Steps To Reproduce

  • Compile Doomseeker from source, following instructions in the <code>COPYING</code> file. Build at least one of the supported engines (Zandronum, Chocolate Doom, Odamex, SRB2). (All engines are built by default.)

  • Install to a desired prefix (root path). Check /usr/share/doomseeker/engines in that root path.

  • Alternatively, remove or move engines directory from $HOME/.doomseeker/engines, current build directory and current relative directory. Then run Doomseeker from a terminal. Check the stdout for "Attempting to load plugins from directory" messages.

Additional Information [^]

$ ./doomseeker                                                                                                     

[13:08:43] Starting Doomseeker. Hello World! :)
[13:08:43] Attempting to load plugins from directory: /home/wub/.doomseeker/engines
[13:08:43] Attempting to load plugins from directory: /home/wub/.local/src/doomseeker/doomseeker-1.1/obj-x86_64-linux-gnu/engines

[13:08:43] Attempting to load plugins from directory: engines
[13:08:43] Attempting to load plugins from directory: /usr/share/doomseeker/engines
[13:08:43] Attempting to load plugins from directory: :/engines

(Reproducible on vanilla 1.1 sources, my DFSG build removes unused Windows binary objects which is what I now had. I removed ./obj-x86_64-linux-gnu/engines here.)

$ file /usr/share/doomseeker/engines/
