Segmentation fault at the beginning of game

Post by reader321 » October 22nd, 2009, 7:11 pm

Hi,..

i would like to play/buy this game..but looks i dont have luck. Ive tried demo for 1.4 and also for 1.5 version of the game..but result is almost same. 1.4 i was actually able to create character and it crashed later when actual game was starting

Game crashes right after clicking on "begin a new advanture"

Staring game...(with some message)

Code: Select all

$ ./Eschalon\ Book\ I\ Demo 
do_wait: drmWaitVBlank returned -1, IRQs don't seem to be working correctly.
Try adjusting the vblank_mode configuration parameter.
this is error that is printed when games crashes

Code: Select all

appstub.linux signal handler 11Segmentation fault (core dumped)
I was using ubuntu 9.04 ..and today ive upgraded to 9.10.

Ive got lenovo x200 -> integrated graphic card intel hd 4500. Acceleration is working.

Anyone has a hint how to make it running?

Thanks a lot :)

I'm also getting the same error message on 9.10. I upgraded last night and am using a Dell Inspiron 1525.

Edit:- I have just tried full-screen mode and the game works.. It would appear to be a graphics problem.

hmm..you are right....i didn try actually fullscreen mode on ubuntu 9.10...it truly looks it works.


just wonder what graphic performance number do you have in options? It gives me around 20-30..
