Re: Ubuntu 8.10 with Intel graphics game doesn't start...

I updated the other post, but just to recap. I never did get the game to run in 8.10, but it is running in 9.04 beta with the linux 2.6.28 kernel. So, in a few weeks, when 9.04 comes out, this might be a mute issue.

Re: Problem launching Eschalon

To update....I installed the beta of Ubuntu 9.04 with the 2.6.28-11 kernel on a partition and the game works fine. It seems my only problem was with ubuntu 8:10 and the 2.6.27-11 kernel. I suspect it had something to do with introducing mesa too quickly....but, in 3 weeks, the issue will be a mute o...

Re: Problem launching Eschalon

I'm booting into gOS to run it. Not the ideal situation, but acceptable for now. It will all work itself out in the wash eventually.

Thanks for your help!

Re: Problem launching Eschalon

Update, although not much of one. I have a partition on my computer running GOS, (which I used so rarely, I forgot it was there!). Anyway, I believe GOS is built off of Ubuntu 8.04. I installed Eschalon there and it runs fine. Not exactly a solved issue. I will still work on getting it to run in 8.1...

Re: Problem launching Eschalon

This is a little beyond me. Not at all - it's highly unfortunate, and something of a failing of the Linux community, that you have to know so much to figure out what's wrong. The community is, in general, very helpful, but it's fractured into so many different separately-managed projects and distri...

Re: Problem launching Eschalon

I'm by no means an expert, but "dri_bufmgr_fake.c" sounds like it's in Mesa to me. Try making sure you've got the most up-to-date Mesa package for your distribution. However, given that DRI is involved, it might also be worth checking for an updated kernel, just in case it's some knock-on effect of...

Re: Problem launching Eschalon

Just a quick note. I tried installing eschalon on a HP dv6000 notebook with Ubuntu 8.10, and I got the same error message.

I will look into the driver issue.

thanks
