Issues running Darwinia under Ubuntu Hardy 64bit

Postby eldrick » Tue Aug 19, 2008 7:39 pm

I have been trying to get Darwinia (1.4.0.b9 release) to run for the best part of the last 2 hours. I hope someone is able to help me fix this.

My laptop specs are: Intel Core 2 Duo T7700, 2gb Ram, 120gb HDD and Intel 965GM gfx.

All the necessary libraries are installed via the command getlibs thus I've removed any library files from /lib in the Darwinia directory. The game loads but I cant access the garden level as the game crashes with the following error in terminal:

_________________

warning: Lowest section in system-supplied DSO at 0xffffe000 is .hash at ffffe0b4

Darwinia has unexpectedly encountered a fatal error.
A full description of the error can be found in the file
blackbox.txt in the current working directory

Hi, I'm going on no sleep for 48hrs, so if some of this makes no sense... :)

Darwinia has probs with dual core procs... you can search the forums for posts about it in any ol' OS.

Basically you need to assign the game process to only one core. I don't know how you do this under linux -- my old athlon64 box is still running well on a Venice proc -- but I'll joke w' ya and tell you to type "man..."

If you can't find the answer here or elsewhere, PM John -- he's the linux port guy and he replies to PMs pretty fast -- very nice guy!

running on a single core on a dual core cpu

Postby eldrick » Thu Aug 21, 2008 1:14 pm

Found taskset is the command to tell a program to run on a specific core.

So I tried running the game using the following commands: taskset -c 1 ./darwinia without any success.

The same error crops up when I try it.

Any suggestions?

** Edit** I even tried taskset -c 0 ./darwinia without any success too.

Well I haven't moved to 2.6 or to 64b yet so I don't have any experience. But there are several threads about getting darwinia to run under 64b linux. You may hve a library conflict somewhere -- as far as darwinia is concerned. It was NOT written with 64b in mind. But I think some people have gotten it working. You probably have to make sure all the libs being loaded are the 32b versions.

Try searching the 64b threads, then maybe PM John, although they're all rushing to get Multiwinia ready for the launch next month. A last ditch option is to get / make a bootable 32b linux CD/DVD and run darwina from that. The only tricky part there is getting your proprietary video drivers into the mix. I think shinygerbil is a power linux user, so you could try PM'ing him. Very few people read the darwinia forums now...

I've been trying to resolve this but not had much luck. I have installed the 32bit dependencies using getlibs without luck.

I think I'll be doing one of the following 3 options:

1 : try sending a PM to the people you mentioned.
2 : run it under a VM as suggested or perhaps under a 32bit emulation layer if there is one available to be installed under Ubuntu..
3 : perhaps attempt to run it under wine.

Thanks Briceman2 for your help.

There are a few distros which refuse to follow the gnu Path of Purity.

There's a tiny one called SAM linux which supposedly includes both ATI & nVidia proprietary drivers. It's based on PClinuxOS, but the docs are horrible. I'd feel safer if I could read German.

There's also Mandriva One which can be booted in Live mode. It also have both proprietary drivers, but maybe not the latest ones. In your shoes I'd give it a try: http://www.mandriva.com/en/product/mandriva-linux-one

There also used to be a knoppix based bootable distro dedicated to games (incl. both proprietary drivers), but my quick search suggests it might be dead now. Knoppix-Games was the name.

Hello all

I am currently working on getting the Darwinia Demo to work on my install of Ubuntu 8.04 (64 bit dual core). I may have some solutions that will work for the 64 bit architecture, that I used when installing Uplink (same issue, 32 bit game on a 64 bit system). Basically, you have to hard search (i.e. internet, not the Package Manager) for the 32 repositories you need and install those.

Here is a link to the Wikki that I used to install Uplink under those circumstances, and it has worked perfectly for me for many months now,

http://whynotwiki.com/How_I_installed_N_on_64-bit_Linux

This may or may not solve the dual core problem that I have read in these forums, but I would imagine that Uplink is not a dual core built game as well. Let me know how this works, I can't currently test it as I have other commitments I have to meet right now.
