I have just installed Fedora 64 and fully updated it. After that, I installed EB1 and when I run ./eschalon_book_1 it gives me the following error:
Setting sound driver: Default
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
No window is opened, just that message and I am back to the terminal prompt.
I tried editing the eschalon.cfg file to many combinations:
setting sound to "0" or "1" (default) and "2" -- no success
setting "16" and "32" color depth -- no success
setting between windowed and full screen -- no success
Also tried to change my X resolution to 800x600 and other lower res, but the game shows the same segfault message without success.
My system is a Intel i7 2600, 8 Gb RAM, Geforce GTX 500 Ti (with last updated drivers from NVIDIA website, driver v. 295.59). Installed system is a Fedora 16 x64 bits, kernel 3.4.2-1.fc16.x86_64.
After reading this post
, and trying to set the sound to "0" in the config file, I get no message of "Setting Sound driver: Default", but still get the segfault. So I belive it is an issue with my graphics driver or something else. Unfortunately I've the lastest graphic drivers.
I'd like to add that the game (same tarball file) runs perfectly on my laptop (HP Pavilion DV5020us) which is using Fedora 10 (32 bits).
