Hi I recently got the Linux port of this game but I can't launch it

When I try to launch the game I get this message:

[root@localhost Penumbra Ep1]# sh penumbra
which: no chcon in (/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/lib/qt3//bin)
./penumbra.bin: error while loading shared libraries: ./lib/libvorbisfile.so.3: file too short
Penumbra exited unexpectedly, please check
/root/.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
[root@localhost Penumbra Ep1]#

I tried also looking the hpl.log but it seems the file didn't created I can't find it

What can I do to fix this?

Thanks

Hi !

First, never run games as root !

And try to update the libvorbis package Smile

For the hpl.log file, run the game under your user account (NOT root) an post it here.

I saw a bit the installed files and seems the insaller make them bad lots of the files had 0 bytes but I saw the installer left in a tar file i uncopressed them and ten I overwrited the 0 bytes files and now complained about ccannot start the sound system in KDE. It don't impress me since i updated to MDV 2008 I have had some sound problems with sound programs I tried Fluxbox ICEWM and this one seems wnat to launch but say my graphic driver don't support some features but How can i update the drivers from a Radeon 9250? If ATi dumped the support long ago and I don't want to mess with the last propietary one since it's ages old and i can't find another open source driver one for this card

Hmmm, I don't think your graphics card is supported by this game =[

Please -REP me.
Honestly, please do. I want to see how low I can go!!
Ignore that error message too. Just ignore it and keep going to give me -rep.

Sure u have the latest drivers for your card?

This line is strange:
"Max texture image units: 140432928
Max texture coord units: 140432928"

Make sure to set shaders to Low, in options or else you might have problems.

Also, according the log, nothing goes wrong, allthough there is a test missing (might be because it is the Linux version).

The first error u say is becacuse of a currpost oggvorbis file. Is this still here? So far nothing tells me your gfx cannot run the game.

seems odd that the installer didn't extract the files correctly. Did you have low disk space?
If you could see how to recreate the 0 byte files during install bug so I cab recreate i can fix it.


As for the graphics, it looks like you are using the software GL driver on the system instead of a hardware excelerated one. Check that you installed the drivers correctly. Also try another opengl game and see if it runs correctly.
