Error message: "no bars"

Post by sergio » July 14th, 2013, 10:10 am

Greetings! I just purchased and downloaded the game, and I'm having difficulty getting it to run. I get the following error message:

Code: Select all

sergio@serenity:~/Games/Eschalon Book I Registered $ ./eschalon_book_1 
no bars
I'm running on 64-bit ubuntu 13.04 (but I have 32-bit libs installed).

Here's the output of ldd:

No bars doesn't mean anything to me really, however, I don't see libstc++.so.5, install that library (32bit of course) and try again?

Edit:

Scratch that, It's not in my list either. Thought Eschalon needed it. ldd matches mine (With exception to video card differences).

libstdc++ was already installed, but I went ahead and installed the dev headers, package name "libstdc++6-4.7-dev".

I still get the "no bars" message at program launch, but the output to ldd is slightly different: the nvidia libraries were replaced with libX* libraries.

This isn't a dynamic library error, or if it is it's a subtle one.

The "no bars" error comes from Eschalon itself - I see it in the binary executable. I think we're not likely to get very far without BW's assistance.

The only thing I can think is to try running the game through strace so that we can see what it's trying to do right before it exits. Open a terminal, change to the game directory, and run:

Code: Select all

strace -s256 -f ./eschalon_book_1 > strace.txt
Then upload strace.txt here.

Thanks SpottedMushroom. I did as you said.

Here's the stdout:

Code: Select all

sergio@serenity:~/Games/Eschalon Book I Registered $ cat strace.txt 
no bars
[ Process PID=2743 runs in 32 bit mode. ]
The forum doesn't seem to allow attaching .txt files (and was smart enough to complain when I changed it to other extensions), so here are the last few lines of the stderr:

Yeah, unfortunately I'm going to need to see a lot more of the file than that to be able to have a chance of figuring out what's going on. Pastebin lets you upload up to 512k, which might be enough. Oh, and I forgot strace writes to stderr. In order to actually get the output in a file, you need to do

Code: Select all

strace -s256 -f ./eschalon_book_1 >& strace.txt
