Frabjous day, it works!

Now I just have to get GDB working... apparently I'm missing ncurses? You'd think the average Linux distro would have this...? Ah well. Not a UQM problem, and now the game works for me.

Tell me what gdb is and/or where to get it and I'd be delighted to.  Huh

Edit: Never mind. Google saves the day again.

I'm afraid I'm getting the same error, only without the line about SetSemaphore, and the mixer init says "opened dsp" instead of "opened artsc". (I'm using the dynamic installer this time; otherwise my setup would appear to be identical to Ilyak's.) I'm on Mandrake 9; can provide system info if relevant. I wouldn't normally post a "me too" error, but at least now you know it's not an isolated occurrence.

By the way... have we thanked you for even undertaking this project? I've played the Windows version of 0.1, and I'm just delighted to see this game back alive and kicking. Easily one of the top five PC games of all time; thus, easily one of the most noble projects a gamer/coder can pick up.

Honestly, I chose the statically-linked version in hopes of avoiding the need. I've found libraries and dependencies to be one of the most aggravating parts of Linux. Seems like every time I try to install something that doesn't come with its own dependencies, I get errors; so I find and install the dependencies, and those get errors because I don't have their dependencies... and it's just a big mess.

I'll take a stab at finding and installing the dependencies, then compiling from source.
5  The Ur-Quan Masters Re-Release / Technical Issues / 0.2, Linux, fresh install: Segmentation fault on: February 28, 2003, 03:32:43 pm
Just downloaded the Linux statically-linked version, and installed only the main content and the 3D0 music. I used all the default installation options. The installer gave me what looks like two uqm executables -- one is in /usr/local/games/bin/ and one is in /usr/local/games/lib/uqm/.

When I attempt to run the one in games/bin, I get the following error:

Quote
/usr/local/games/bin/uqm: line 3: 27737 Segmentation fault "/usr/local/games/lib/uqm/uqm" "--contentdir=/usr/local/games/lib/uqm/content" "$@"


When I attempt to run the executable in games/lib/uqm, I get simply "Segmentation fault".

I then tried running the executables as root just for S&Gs, but no go. Suggestions? I'm still a bit new at Linux, so I could be missing something; I just wanted something to play on my second computer while rebooting after one of those delightfully refreshing Morrowind crashes.

You know, as opposed to walking around, or getting some fresh air... heh.
