Hi, when I try to lunch the game with ./penumbra I get this message

Penumbra exited unexpectedly, please check
/home/zergling/.frictionalgames/Penumbra Overture/Episode1/hpl.log
for any error messages
Also try running
ulimit -c unlimited
And re-running Penumbra and try and recreate the error
then submit the generated core file or stack trace
zergling@zergling-laptop:~/PenumbraEp1$

I have tried to look at the log file and I got this :

-------- THE HPL ENGINE LOG ------------

My video board is a Nvidia GeForce Go 7600

you're sure the driver is up to date? I'm not saying that may be your problem, it's more of just a question, just to be sure.
not sure if all distros are the same, or what, but do you see a NVIDIA splash screen before you get onto the desktop?

second person, what distro are you running? for my distro, i just need to type in "sh (program name)", but I know different distros have different codes.

Hi,
Hmm no I do not see the NVIDIA splash screen before the log in... but in the desktop pc I see it and I have the same distro, just different video card
I am running the Ubuntu feisty 7.04.
When I installed the game I use sh game_name and my driver are 1.0-9755.

run
glxinfo | grep glx

and See what the glx vendor strings are. (server and client). They BOTH should say NVIDIA Coporation. If both do not, then the NVIDIA binary drivers are not installed correctly. Also, the nvidia splash screen will display regardless of your video card. I can, however, be disabled in the xorg.conf config file. (but if you say you installed the same way on the same dist, that wouldn't be the case)

even if this is an ATI it will display an NVIDIA? Smile
I do know, at least with my distro mandriva, if I don't see it, it's not set up properly.

No, obviously you won't see the nvidia logo w/ an ATI card.Smile Zergling commented in comment #4 that his Desktop shows the nvidia logo, but his laptop does not, and that he has a different card in his desktop, wondering if that caused the logo to not appear.

Anyways, the default configuration of the nvidia drivers is to display the logo. However if you set an
Option "NoLogo" "True"
In either the screen or the device sections of the xorg.conf config file, it will disable the Logo. Thus the proper way of determining if the nvidia drivers are setup correctly is to use glxinfo.

Hi guys,
I have tried the command : glxinfo | grep glx
and I got :

server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
server glx version string: 1.4
server glx extensions:
client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
client glx version string: 1.4
client glx extensions:

Can somebody help me please?
I have used automatix to install the driver.
Do I have to try to install the driver manually? If so, how?

Hi, I just tried to use the same command in my desktop pc and I got the same thing:

But, in my desktop the game works... so, what should I do?

This is my xorg.conf in my laptop

Hi guys!
I finally fixed the problem!
The game was unable to start because it was set on 16 bit!
So, I set the color depth at 32 bit and now it works perfectly!!!!!
Bye guys and thanks for everything!!!
