I like games like eschalon, so I was thrilled when I saw there was linux version and bought the download. The problem is that the game crashes hard and a cold boot is needed every time. This crash appears at the exact same place every time, so the question is; is this a bug with the game code or with my save game? It is really rather frustrating not being able to play more than five minutes in to the game.
The crash appears in the first dungeon right arter turning the corner here:
I'm using a bare Arch linux 32 bit install with no compositing enabled and with functioning DRI. My graphics card is a intel GMA945.
