I think you're looking for reticent or reluctant, not resilient.

Why, thank you for the correction. Seems I had a misconception (not miscarriage...) about the word. One more thing I learn today.

And to stay ontopic, zget rules the metric system!
What?

I just wanted to say thank you for zget4 - just as a bit of random info it works beautifully on the German version of WinXP, too (zget 1 had some issues with the localized version I have).

When I run Zget, it gives me an error about how my version of GCC is invalid. I'm using the GCC that came with Dev C++, however. I tried downloading MinGW from the official site, but Zget insists on looking in the Dev C++ folder, and not the MinGW folder. Thus, I keep getting this damned error.

Edit the zmpath file to the MinGW folder. You should then not have the error anymore.

There doesn't seem to be a zmpath file to tell you the truth. Yes, I did download Zget from this thread.

Zget is supposed to keep looking for MinGW whether or not it is invalid..

In any case, create the file zmpath and put in it the path to MinGW..

Code: Select all

C:\path\to\MinGW\

Honestly, I am not all that great with computers. What kind of file should zmpath be? .txt, .exe, ect?

There is no extension. zmpath is the name of the file. It is a text file internally.

Ah.. How would I go about creating it? Obviously, I can't just create a file named 'zmpath' with nothing contained in it. Could you tell me what code goes into it?

It really is a text file w/o a .txt extension.

Just go create a text file, enter the correct path in the text file, and save it. Then rename the file to zmpath. Windows will complain about the extension but continue with it anyways. Zget should not complain anymore.

To tell you the truth, that didn't work. And yes, I did everything correctly. At least I think.

You are supposed to use the MinGW build provided by Zget.. not the ones from anywhere else... You are supposed to have downloaded zmingw4.7z via Zget and it should have been automatically extracted and installed...

If Zget hasn't been able to obtain zmingw4.7z, try http://nsrt.edgeemu.com/zmingw4.7z

One idea. Can zget compile a build optimized for toaster architecture?

a suggestion, can ZGET 4.x or 5.x (whatever) refer to a config file which contains the default values for each question asked and also includes the option to auto answer the questions via using the default answers specified in the config file?

edit: have it search for a file called changelog.txt and if found append to it rather then download everything... (maybe have it check the latest entry in the file first then download all subsequent changes info.... and if file isnt found download the whole change log.

Is there any direct URL to check the changelog.txt file ? I use zget each time I want to see what's new...

By the way, for super lazy people, you can just press Enter right away rather than typing "n", each time you want to answer no... :p

i know the thing about N being the default so that a blank answer will result in saying no (if you were calling me lazy)... i would just like to have control over it more so and automate it to my needs.

I understood that. And I wasn't calling you lazy, my message wasn't meant for anyone in particular... And I *am* lazy. :p

If you want to automate it, create zget.txt, in it place the choices you want each line by itself.

For example:
Y
N
N
Y
Y
Y
...

Make sure you have a new line after the last one.
Once you're done, create zget.bat, in it place:
@zget.exe < zget.txt

Now running zget.bat will automate the entire question answering process.

oooh, thanks very very much, greatly appreciate it.

edit - small bug... it doesnt show each question on its own line in zget when automating... and it didnt answer the question about up-x with a Y.

Code: Select all
