Curago, I don't seem to get any errors and your extension is converting to a unc ok.

I'm just doing

Code Sample
# ./dsl2unc grub-splash.dsl

as root with both script and extension in /home/dsl
(I use an older dsl while on the web so dsl2unc is in my home directory).

EDIT: Which reminds me I need to update this to try to preserve perms.

Ah-ha! Let me guess - you're running it something like

Code Sample
./dsl2unc somedir/grub-splash.dsl

That does go haywire.  The problem is I got lazy on sorting out the relative paths.  What's worse, I wrote a v3 that fixed this months ago and forgot about it.  Mea culpa.

Try this:



# dsl2unc v0.3

# Just automates Robert's instructions for making a unc extension from a dsl.
# WDef Mar 2007

# Changelog  v0.3

# Relative paths handled
# Added checks for work dir and filesystem
# Run as root to keep perms

# Changelog v0.2

# Handles symlinks, opt and empty directories in user.tar.gz.
# Current working directory is assumed if path to argument extension is not given.
# Runs in batch mode: converts all argument .dsls to .uncs
#- eg to process somedirectory full of extensions, if dsl2unc is in PATH:
#- cd somedirectory; dsl2unc *
# Directory $DIR for $WORK and output is now settable.
# Even more lurid coloring.

#==========================// USER SETTING//===============================

# Put DIR on a hard drive _linux_ partition if insufficient room in /ramdisk/home/dsl

#==========================// FNS //========================================

I also changed the working dir from /home/dsl to /temp/temp and ran it as root.. That directory did exist before trying it...

If you wish, just post the unc you made of it, I don't feel like messing with that for now.

But yea, I think I did something like that.. BTW, WDef, ever played Final Fantasy? It's curaga

EDIT: yea, but that was with v2

There's no such thing as life. Those mean little jocks invented it ;)

Not a big games person myself. I'll aim to get your nic right in future, typos notwithstanding.

I'm emailing you the unc so you can test it and post it.

EDIT:  /temp/temp works.
