So just to be sure, this patch is for linux not windows right? I wasn't sure because the title said Patch + linux, so I wasn't sure if that meant that it was for both Windows AND Linux, or just Linux...Sorry, I do realize that this is probably a stupid question, so don't start fuckin' flaming me about what a dumb question this was :evil:

Why it shouldn't? There is a patch installer for win32, as long you don't download the wrong file, all should be fine.

"Speicherzugriffsfehler" is German and means "Memoryaccesserror" (litteraly translated).

As you can see... Still have a problem even with TRYA verision (and linux)

Why would a porting program be needed? When you upgrade to 1.49, your save files are either compatible with or are converted to the new format automatically, or at least mine were, and they work perfectly. The only possible reason would be if you planned to downgrade, but in that case all you need to do is create a backup of your files before updating.

Does this mean I have a problem with OpenGL? But all other gl things work... Darwinia, screensavers... And I have installed the right drivers for my video card (It's an ATI 9800Pro)

According to the error, it has more to do with the SDL initialization. I have the same problem, with an nvidia card and their proprietary drivers, and probably there is some hardcoded version number of SDL or something in the uplink executable, so that this works in Ubuntu but not in other distros. Or maybe a required SDL package missing. Just a guess...
