Just had an unsuccessful support session on IRC, which I thought I should post here for future reference. The interesting part starts around 11:57, but I've kept it all just in case...
[11:42]   <sisbro>   hi everybody
[11:42]   <sisbro>   someone to help me ?
[11:43]   <sisbro>   when launch freeorion I have the message : freeorion-start: line 61: 3072 Erreur de segmentation ${STRACE} ./freeorion --settings-dir ./default $@
[11:44]   <tank_>   sisbro: you have to change something, wait a moment
[11:44]   <tank_>   sisbro: where did you get the nightly build from?
[11:45]   <tank_>   sisbro: open the file "freeorion" with a text editor and replace --settings-dir with --resource-dir
[11:45]   <sisbro>   oki
[11:45]   <sisbro>   taken from
[11:45]   <tpb>   Title: Index of / (at
[11:47]   <GeofftheMedio>   kroddn supposedly fixed this quite recently.
[11:47]   <sisbro>   main() caught exception(std::runtime_error): Option "--resource-dir", could not be found.
[11:47]   <GeofftheMedio>   if you get freeorion_rev3198_i386_static.tar.gz from the nightly folder, it should be fixed...
[11:47]   <GeofftheMedio>   you appear to be using 3072
[11:48]   <GeofftheMedio>   although I don't see that available for download...
[11:49]   <GeofftheMedio>   maybe that 3072 doesn't mean what I thought
[11:49]   <GeofftheMedio>   in your error message, I mean
[11:52]   <sisbro>   I use freeorion_rev3102_i386_static.tar.gz 2
[11:52]   <GeofftheMedio>   try 3198
[11:52]   <GeofftheMedio>   the problem you're seeing has been there for a few weeks, but didn't get fixed until 3198
[11:53]   <sisbro>   ok, thanks, I will try
[11:53]   <GeofftheMedio>   I'm not sure why making that edit didn't work, though
[11:53]   <GeofftheMedio>   do please report back about whether 3198 works.
[11:54]   <tank_>   GeofftheMedio: well, here it worked;)
[11:54]   <GeofftheMedio>   it might be an unrelated problem.
[11:54]   <tank_>   i had 3197
[11:54]   <sisbro>   3198 is on the road
[11:54]   <GeofftheMedio>   before editing 3197, was your error message about a segmentation fault, or about the settings-dir not being a valid option?
[11:55]   <sisbro>   segmentation fault
[11:55]   <sisbro>   and it was 3102
[11:55]   <tank_>   sisbro: he talked to me;)
[11:55]   <tank_>   GeofftheMedio: no idea... that was yesterday:) afair segfault
[11:55]   <tank_>   GeofftheMedio: but i'm not sure
[11:56]   <GeofftheMedio>   (sisbro: I can read your error message from 10 minutes ago in the chat log...)
[11:56]   <tank_>   GeofftheMedio: sorry, just reedited it:
[11:56]   <tank_>   main() caught exception(std::runtime_error): Option "--settings-dir", could not be found.
[11:56]   <tank_>   main() failed config.
[11:56]   <tank_>   exception
[11:57]   <GeofftheMedio>   right. so sisbro's error is something different
[11:57]   <sisbro>   freeorion_rev3198_i386_static
[11:57]   <GeofftheMedio>   I'm guessing you'll have the segfault again after updating
[11:57]   <sisbro>   freeorion-start: line 61: 5985 Segmentation fault ${STRACE} ./freeorion --resource-dir ./default $@
[11:57]   <GeofftheMedio>   yay me.
[11:58]   <GeofftheMedio>   ok, what version of opengl does your graphics card support, and what vendor made it?
[11:58]   <sisbro>   not work more
[11:58]   <sisbro>   how can I see this ?
[11:59]   <GeofftheMedio>   can you find freeorion.log and ogre.log in ~/.freeorion
[11:59]   <tank_>   for vendor: "glxinfo | grep vendor" sould do it
[11:59]   <GeofftheMedio>   or that
[11:59]   <tank_>   versoin should be anywhere inside the glxinfo output also
[12:01]   <sisbro>   server glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
[12:01]   <sisbro>   client glx vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
[12:01]   <sisbro>   OpenGL vendor string: NVIDIA Corporation
[12:02]   <sisbro>   server glx version string: 1.4
[12:02]   <sisbro>   client glx version string: 1.4
[12:02]   <sisbro>   GLX version: 1.3
[12:02]   <sisbro>   OpenGL version string: 2.1.2 NVIDIA 173.14.09
[12:02]   <GeofftheMedio>   hmm.
[12:02]   <GeofftheMedio>   can you post the last few lines of freeorion.log?
[12:03]   <GeofftheMedio>   GL > 2.0 should work fine, and NVIDIA drivers haven't been a problem as far as I recall
[12:04]   <sisbro>   2009-10-08 21:01:55,620 DEBUG Client : OpenAL initialized. Version 1.1Renderer OpenAL SoftVendor OpenAL Community
[12:04]   <sisbro>   2009-10-08 21:01:55,953 DEBUG Client : Limited FPS to 60
[12:04]   <sisbro>   2009-10-08 21:01:56,055 DEBUG Client : (HumanClientFSM) IntroMenu
[12:04]   <sisbro>   2009-10-08 21:01:56,055 DEBUG Client : (HumanClientFSM) IntroMenuIdle
[12:06]   <sisbro>   this is the file
[12:07]   <GeofftheMedio>   and this crashes right after you start the program? as in, you don't have to click any menus on the splash screen
[12:07]   <sisbro>   just after launch
[12:08]   <GeofftheMedio>   hmm. strange.
[12:09]   <GeofftheMedio>   have you ever had a previous version of freeorion installed? just in case, could you check if there's a config.xml in ~/.freeorion , and if there is, delete it and retry?
[12:09]   <sisbro>   no config.xml aleksil t aleksil ll
[12:09]   <sisbro>   no config.xml at all
[12:10]   <GeofftheMedio>   I don't know what else to suggest then...
[12:11]   <sisbro>   ok, I will see, see ya
[12:11]   |<--   sisbro has left ("using sirc version 2.211+KSIRC/1.3.12")
