RE: Linux Beta Demo and Feedback (Beta3)

DeeKey Wrote:Still not able to run under Ubuntu 6.06 Sad

I have upgraded from Beta 2 to beta 3 with the script.

The output is the same:
denis@ubuntu:~/PenumbraEp1Demo$ ./penumbrademo
./penumbrademo.bin: /lib/tls/i686/cmov/libc.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.4' not found (required by ./lib/libalut.so.0)
Penumbra exited unexpectedly, please check
/home/denis/.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
/home/denis/PenumbraEp1Demo


Later will try downloading the clean Beta3
Your distro should have all those libs as well (without the need of glibc 2.4).
Removing everything in /home/denis/PenumbraEp1Demo/lib exept libCgGL.so and libCg will make it use your system libs.

I had the same problem with the log file.
It only seems to be created after you manage to run the game (making it completely useless).

PS: Using FC6 to build this was IMHO really a bad idea since many distros like Debian and Slackware still need to use glibc 2.3 to remain compatible with kernel 2.4.

RE: Linux Beta Demo and Feedback (Beta3)

Testet on a clean demo beta3. The same result. Yet, after the installation was over, i received the following note:

RE: Linux Beta Demo and Feedback (Beta3)

jvb thank you for your help. Your workaround helped me. Additionally I have installed few libs for my distro. But still I am to the point, that the game should work right out of the box.

RE: Linux Beta Demo and Feedback (Beta3)

Oops, My Bad.

I packaged all the glibc 2.3 libs, I guess I missed one lib..  If you replace the libalut.so.0.1.0 with your system libalut.so.0.1.0 (from the freealut package) it will fix it..    I have fixed this for the next installer release.

Again, Sorry about that.

RE: Linux Beta Demo and Feedback (Beta3)

That may, unforutnately, be the sound card. Right now I am waiting for the sound code to be cleaned up by one of the other programmers to fix similar issues on Windows, once that is done it should fix all platforms of these oddities.

foulmetal Wrote:This 3rd Beta is even better but sometimes sound is jerking, the man's sound speech is perfect at the intro.

Yes sound is jerking sometimes : interrupted by micro blanks and sound appears to be slowed.

My sound card is a chipset integrated into the motherboard :
Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller.
The card is alone on his IRQ (#19).
And I'm using Alsa drivers from kernel 2.6.20 (snd_via82xx)

RE: Linux Beta Demo and Feedback (Beta3)

Seems Gentoo is the only distro left with installer issues.

What specific release of Gentoo are you using? I'm going to setup a test environment and track it down and would like to get as close to your install as possible.

RE: Linux Beta Demo and Feedback (Beta3)

Gentoo releases do not represent the state of the installed system.
Install any release and upgrade the system with:

emerge --sync && emerge -uD world

Then you have the most current gentoo system.

I disagree. I installed the Beta/Beta2 in /opt/ without any problem. The new installer in Beta3 Upgrade-Verison has an option (--target) to choose the install directory, but it always stop with an error like it can't find a game directory in my home directory.

I'm using debian 4.0 etch. The Sound is much better than Beta2 but not without mistakes.

Great Demo with great physics engine. I'm running the Demo on an Athlon XP 2500+ (1833 MHz) with a GeForce4 Ti 4800 SE very well.

OK, I have the installer fixed on Gentoo.. The next install builds will have this fix included.
