I'm having trouble with DLPB's installers.
I'd like to know if it's possible to release the mod package without the installer.
ie, just a zip file with all the modifications so I could write my own install script using lgp & unlgp
The reason being that I am trying to install in linux through WINE, and I don't think that will ever work.
Apparently, when run in WINE, the installer attempts to open an a great many file descriptors (lots of little files in lgp archives?) along with numerous X clients (multiple instances of cmd.exe); thousands of each.
In Ubuntu, file descriptors are limited to 1024 by default, and in X11 clients are limited to 255.
I was able to work around the file limit through some config file hacking, but I don't even know if it's possible to change X11's client limit.
I poked around in the dlpb-mods folder and found something interesting: most of the patchers can be run directly on linux.
In fact lgp.exe and unlgp.exe can also be run directly on linux.
If I could make a shell script to do what the installer does, there may not be any need to modify the other executables and I could probably get around WINE's difficulties.
