Missing Shaders

Missing Shaders
Hey, some fresh meat here.
I managed to get the latest release (2009-02-15) to build and install, using scons-local and the inbuilt bullet engine.
Ubuntu 8.10, 64 bit. Built with arch=64 and release=1

simon@simon-laptop:/usr/share/games/vdrift/bin$ ./vdrift
INFO: Multi-processor system detected.  Run with -multithreaded argument to enable multithreading (EXPERIMENTAL).

      Using GLEW 1.5.0
INFO: Loaded shader package simple
ERROR: Shader file not found: /usr/share/games/vdrift/data/shaders/less_simple/vertex.glsl
vdrift: src/shader.cpp:131: void SHADER_GLSL::LoadFileIntoString(const std::string&, std::string&, std::ostream&) const: Assertion `f' failed.
SIGABRT detected, releasing the mouse

I looked in the folder it was referring to, the less_simple folder didn't exist. Playing around, I copied and renamed the simple folder to less_simple. The result was an error coming up regarding another missing folder.
I went into the config file and turned shaders off hoping I could get it running without, no change was observed.

Thanks for any help.

Edit: I just noticed the date in the log is different to the date on my download - 2009-02-24 as opposed to be 2009-02-15. I don't know the significance of this.
Edit2: just realised that's either todays, or the day it was built. How embarassing.

The scons install script hadsn't been updated in a long time and is kind of broken. It will forget to copy some files, so you have to manually copy over your data to the install location (/usr/share/games/vdrift/data).

Ah, thanks, Joe. That tidbit in the wiki is painfully easy to find now that you mention it.

No problem... we should really fix it...
