Eschalon BK2 Crashes Laptop on Exit

Post by Tecknomage » May 28th, 2011, 4:11 pm

Eschalon Book 2 v1.05
On: Linux Mint 11 Katya laptop

Did a fresh install of Linux Mint 11 and Eschalon BK2 launches and runs OK.

BUT when I try to [Exit] to the desktop my system freezes. I have to force power-down and restart.

Eschalon BK2 did NOT do this on Linux Mint 10.

Any ideas :(

Does it also crash if you switch to a console and manually kill the process?

I'm new to Linux, how do I open Terminal (console) when I do not have normal access? Keyboard shortcut?

How do I kill the process?

CTRL-ALT-F1 will take you to a full screen console. You'll have to log in again.

Then do "ps -ef | grep eschalon". Look for the line that looks like this:

Code: Select all

user       21937 21365 15 09:00 pts/4    00:00:00 ./eschalon_book_2
Take that first number (21937 in my example), and kill it:

Code: Select all

kill 21937
Then to get back to your graphical desktop, CTRL-F7 or CTRL-F8.

Alternately, try running in a window and closing the window, or starting it from a terminal and pressing CTRL-C there to exit.
