Summary0003151: Issues with -mod entries on systems with case-sensitive filesystems
DescriptionThe MediaVPs (since the 3.6.12 patch) have used a mod directory with capitals in the name. Most mods ship their mod.ini file with a reference to an all lower-case name. This is not an issue on Windows and OSX (with HFS+) because these filesystems are case-preserving. However on Linux and BSD the default filesystems are case-sensitive and thus a number of support issues have occurred with Linux/BSD users and the recent MediaVPs_2014.
Steps To ReproduceUse the Installer to install any mod that has mediavps_2014 as a dependency (e.g. Blueplanet, FSPort, JAD2.21)
Select the mod & run FSO
Note the large number of warnings due to missing data
TagsNo tags attached.

I've created a patch that'll perform case-insensitive directory searches and add all matches to the -mod data structures used by FSO.


And here's the branch:


I'd like to get some feedback and testing from other Linux/BSD users.


m_m (developer)

The code looks good.

Thanks for the review. Phantom_Hoover has also tested and reported that the patch works so I'll commit this in a day or so.
