Re: 0.3.14 can't start arch linux

You don't have "gdb" installed. Please install that using your packet manager (I don't know how that works on arch linux).

gdb is "the gnu debugger".

Re: 0.3.14 can't start arch linux

@athros: are you sure that you run the script freeorion and not the binary inside the application directory? Only the script supports that --gdb parameter. The debugging files go into application, so that for example "freeorion" and "freeorion.dbg" are inside the application directory. When starting...

Re: python problem

The game could run on a open GL 1.3 system sometimes, but thats not guaranteed.

Did you download the debugging symbold before running the debugger?

It seems that the programm exited cleanly, so gdb has nothing to output. Did the main menu show?

Re: 0.3.14 can't start arch linux

Please download the Debuggingsymbols for your version of freeorion from sourceforge and run:

Code: Select all

./freeorion --gdb


This loads FreeOrion inside gdb. Then type "s" + Enter, this will run the game.

When the game crashes, type "bt"+Enter and copy+paste the backtrace.

Re: python problem

The python message is no error message. FreeOrion is linked to python 2.5 and not compatible with other versions, so a part of python is shipped with it, which is used in your case. What graphic card do you own? If I remember right, 0.3.14 included some non-committet codechanges to GiGi by me, that ...

Re: 0.3.14 can't start arch linux

I don't think that this error message has anything to do with the crash you experience. The plugin config is not needed, because all ogre modules are linked into the binary statically. I think your graphic card driver is the problem - normally that's the reason for segfault crashes without any furth...

Re: Linux: Crash After Ending Turn on Second or Later Game

It's standard to write into $HOME. There's no need to change this behaviout. Running an installer to install a program systemwide is a commong thing to. But running a game as root is not, that's my opinion too. As I said I will work on a solution. The current solution is: do not press the "Run now" ...

Re: Linux: Crash After Ending Turn on Second or Later Game

It's not that easy at all. sudo is not really a good thing to work with, as it is a mixture of running as root user and having evn vars that the normal user is using. I will try to extend the wrapper script to never run FO as root (or as sudo with $HOME set to the user dir). And maybe it's possible ...

Re: Another application hang during end of turn ver3.1.14 (Mac)

What's wrong with sf.net's Bugtracker? As long as people don't use such systems, the type of that system doesn't matter.

Re: cpu pegs, mouse very slow

Your openGL is a software renderer. So it is to expect that the FPS will be very bad. On my core2 systems FPS will be around 10FPS, if software rendering is used.

If you have a graphic card that has native openGL support on linux, then grab the drivers for that an try it again.

Re: Back from the shadows...

A player hat trouble when executing FreeOrion while "utorrent" was running. If you are used to run utorrent too, then try disabling that.

Re: unregistered class

I can only suggest to make sure that boost is not mixed on the system. On my system, I removed all libs with "boost" in its name from /usr/local/lib and the whole directories like /usr/local/include/boost-X_xx . Than completely remove the SVN checkout of FreeOrion, make a clean checkout and build it...

Re: libpng issue

What OS are you using? The problem ist, that FO used png1.2 when compiling. Did you update libpng in the past? Maybe you did not do a clean build after upgrading? If ldd names png 14.so.14 that does not automatically mean, that it's right. Some part of the code could have been compiled using 1.2 hea...

I can reproduce that crash on my linux system using the current sf.net release.
