Is there anything additional printed on the linux console from which you started AROS hosted?

For reference my test setup is Mint 21.3 with close sourced nVidia drivers and 32-bit OpenGL installed.

What you can check is that:
1) Do you have /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libGL.so.1
2) You need to be using X server, not Wayland (maybe it will work under Wayland but it was never tested)
3) Make sure you use close source nVidia driver
4) Make sure you give AROS more RAM (-m 1024 for 1GCool

If this fails you can still debug AROS using gdb to find out reason (if you have your own local compilation). Let me know if you are interested.


I was using nouveau that's why Smile with closed source drivers it's working fine on my notebook

Unfortunately on core2 with 9500GT I can't use latest drivers I've to find an updated distro that support kernel 5.x max, latest nvidia drivers supporting that thing are v340.108 not compiling on kernel 6+ (apart from nouveau that, well, doesn't work Smile )

@deadwood - Also, for hosted, if you create a file called GL in Pres/Env-Archive/SYS with contents "hostgl" (without ""Wink, you will switch OpenGL implementation to using your hosts and it will make the game playable.


I tried to create GL file with hostgl in Prefs/Env-Archive/SYS but then gl applications just crash on hosted (I tested GLMark and rtcw) it's the same on my notebook (Mint 21.1) and on the core2quad with Debian12 i368 with the error attached below on 20220318-1 I've to install something linux side to make it work?

Thank for the icons. I have packaged all (game+icons+data+sources) on archive.
I have written also a bit of readme for Aros release (hope did not miss nothing).

Which version of Linux Mint are you using?

By how it looks in the console, you are missing some library. I'd look for package containing that file and install this package. I'm using Linux Mint 21.3 and I don't recall if I had to install anything additional to have sound working.

As mentioned in previous post, this is an issues of lack of memory. Start AROSBootstrap -m 512 and the game will run. Smile

Don't know what i need to do to have sound, on the same PC the Aros One on a USB key is working fine.

Ok, problem solved. Games needs more than 256 MB memory and that's the default setting for AROS hosted. After incresing memory to 512MB, no more crash. Also full screen version starts on hosted.

Sorry for false alarm.

AROS hosted is generally better at detecting issues. It sometimes happen that programs work (but behind the sceen damage memory) on native, but imediatelly crash on hosted.

"File is not executable" error. Both windowed & fullscreen


Most probably a corrupted download...i have tested the 2 exe from the archive again it it was runnable on Aros One.

@deadwood

Strange on Aros One the "standard" version is working (slow without OpenGL). Maybe on Aros Hosted is not..but don't know why.

@Farox

Standard version crashes for me after start. See screen shot. Full screen version also crashes and looking at debug output it is most likely the same problem.

Ok, the CLI window will be removed from the final version, otherwise on AROS One I will configure a script with the Run >NIL:

I am preparing the Icons in the usual 4 AROS One Styles, if you want I will attach them so you can include them in the archive.


Yes is better to not show the cli window and maybe change the strange chars on title bar.
Thanks for the icons, i will include in the release.

It should support both keys and joy.
Keys are up/down/left/right for movement
z = shot
x = Bomb
c = Autofire
v = special shot
