Solved: 1 Year, 7 Months, 3 Weeks, 17 Hours, 28 Minutes, 2 Seconds ago Linux Black Plague Demo crash with ATI

I'm running Ubuntu Hardy amd64 version, and am using latest ati drivers (8.5) with Mobility Radeon X1600 card. Other games run fine, including high shader stuff like ETQW.

Black Plague demo starts ok, gets to the main menu, but crashes when I get in game. If I turn the shader level to "very low" I get white screen with text, but nothing else visible. Otherwise it crashes with

(0) : fatal error C9999: *** exception during compilation ***
Cg compiler terminated due to fatal errorPenumbra: Black Plague exited unexpectedly, please check
/home/ales/.frictionalgames/Penumbra/Black Plague/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

Attached it my hpl.log file.

P.S: sorry about putting it here, I noticed you got a linux subforum too late Sad

I tried overture demo, and I get same error with it. It could be an ATI driver bug, this driver (specifically the amd64 version) is very low quality, I'm getting various problems, from hard-freezes in 3d games, to bad shader results.

It seems like the game can not find/load certain files.

Not sure what might be wrong, perhaps some directory settings? I do not know much about Linux so hopefully someone else can be more helpful.
