Defcon halts system! PLZ HELP!!!

Postby darth10 » Wed Feb 10, 2010 4:09 pm

I just bought Defcon and installed it on Ubuntu 9.04. I have a decent graphics card.
The game seems to run fine for 10-15 seconds and then just halts the entire system! :oops: I have to power off the system and restart it.

I've looked high and low in the forums for solutions.
I've tried disabling compiz, running on xfce (more available memory) and even running as root! All techniques fail miserably and the same problem occurs.
I tried looking for the debug file, but cant seem to find anything in the game folder, in /var/log/ or /tmp/. :x

Please help me out with this issue; I need assistance people!! :(

Since the problem is likely to be related to that, which one, and which driver are you using? System lockups are usually the graphics driver's fault.
