I get splash and crash on the Linux client. Trying to get some logs to send in a bug report.

I've been running EVE via Wine for 6 months so I doubt its my system configuration.

..and BTW, at the moment, EVE is easier to set up under Wine than using Transgaming's option. Installation needs to be more streamlined if nothing else.

EDIT: I can run Transgaming's build of EVE using Wine just fine, no splash and crash. I would like to run the Log Server but I don't know how to run it in the same Cedega environment as EVE. Can anyone give a quick run through? Until I can at least do this, there is nothing I can test.

I'm pretty sure that automatic (without any questions, or with minimum amount of) installer will be shipped with the final version

i have been able to install the EVE online client on my linux debian system using the .deb package , the .dat file and the .md5 file .

i had only to add the "python2.4-dbus" package using :

$ apt-get install python2.4-dbus

after this i have been able to run :

$ dpkg -i eveonline_000035_all.deb

after that running "eve" from console as user i have accepted the license and following the instructions i have installed the game (i had to manually select the folder where to find the .dat file , some users have already reported it on forums ) .


after install , when i run the game i can see the splash screen and i have audio too.

The problem is that I CANT login inside the game , it give me error about password .

Something has gone horribly wrong with my Mac client....

Few hrs back Bob Niac and I were happily shooting at jove battleships - and then.... this happened:
http://dl.eve-files.com/media/0710/EVE-Gone_Bad.png

Basically I get a flashing screen, like my video went or something happened... I do not know.
All I know I can login into Server, but I cant really do anything because I have them crazy lines running through my screen.

I removed EVE and reinstalled it again, did not help.

Any of you guys know if I can hard-rset settings somewhere in the files itself/package contents?

I'm getting this error:

"The game package appears to have been corrupted.

md5sum returned this errorcode: 256
"

when first starting EVE. It tries to download the GUI updates and then errors out with this error.

Anyone have a clue what this means?

I figured I should also note that I am running Ubuntu linux, and I used the generic .deb file to run the install.

I also intentionally treated the install as a relatively new linux user might, and just double-clicked the .deb and allowed GDebi to unpack and install the .deb file.

It looks to me like the deb file is either corrupted on the server or is somehow being corrupted after I download it. Is anyone else having this issue?

-----
One last note. Why is it that there is a custom RPM for Suse and Mandriva, but no custom .deb for Ubuntu, the single most popular desktop-level linux distro on the PLANET right now? Is it that it isn't necessary, or did somebody make a boo boo and leave it out?

Dude, no they aren't.

I have done EVERYTHING specified in the previous pages and still I get the error I already mentioned. The biggest thing I am seeing is that everyone else is stating that after clicking the EVE icon in the menu, it asks you to "browse to the installer". Yeah, I NEVER get this. I get the agreement, the single/multi user selection option, and then it just goes straight to downloading the updated GUI, and then the failure error. So no, the stuff above doesn't help, I wouldn't have posted if it did.

Did you copy the .deb and the .md5 into a different directory?

Yep. Plunked them into a sub-directory to start out, so I never actually ran into this issue. However, I think i solved part of it. for some reason firefox copied a .part file of the md5 into my home directory. I suspect I have a corrupted download. I'm going to wget both the dat and the md5 files and try again.

EDIT: Ok, Deleted the original .dat and md5 files and wget'ed fresh copies (and yes, I made sure that the md5 wasn't md5.md5) re-ran eve from the console and got as far as the .dat location selection option. it checked the .dat against the .md5 and again I got:

"The game package appears to have been corrupted.
md5sum returned this errorcode: 256"


So it looks we DO have a corrupted .dat here, unless someone has another explanation for me.

did you modify the py scripts at all? if not it sounds like it is corrupt.

Nope, didn't touch the py scripts. i already had the latest version of python installed, so i didn't have any need to mess with them.

I actually DID get it to finally install. I simply selected the "Download from the internet" option, and the installer automatically pulled in the files it needed from Cedega and it installed just fine.

I do suspect a corrupt .dat file from the e-mail link though, since the auto-download feature did NOT download the .dat and md5 from the same location. So I'd imagine that we have a corrupt .dat file on CCP's download site that simply needs to be replaced.

Password problem here. Emailed for it.

The installer worked perfectly here on an ubuntu 7.04 machine. (Of course, I'm already a cedega customer, so it better! YARRRR!! ) The gdebi installation of the .deb file was my method of installation as "single user".

The .md5 worked after page >save as and getting rid of the trailing stuff.

Game launched and got to the log in screen with no issues. It defaults to 640x480 fullscreen, but closing the client restored proper rez to the machine (which was an issue with cedega's client FS in the past.)

I have this one too. Non-modified files (except for removal of additional spaces from md5 link before i've downloaded it), single-user install option.

Check the contents of the .md5 file, it's probably a 404 error html thingy.

Don't download the md5 file by right-clicking on it in the mail and select save as, because that link is corrupt. Copy the text into a browser window or something and download it that way.

just move the .md5 and .dat file into a dir on yer desktop called eveinst, when the installer cant find the file on say yer desktop(or where you ran it from) it will then ask you to point the installer to the files it needs, thus point it to yer dir you moved the two files into a bit ago. the .md5 and .dat ones. That will do yah. Have Fun. Laughing *Stickey.* Laughing

My Mac client is still cooked.... I do not know what has happened.

Lingorm, when all the Linux Login/Install issues get solved, I know it must be pretty hectic where you are at the moment, is it possible to finally get access to the beta test forums - because things get lost in all of us posting in the same 2 threads....

And I would really like to get back into it.

There were some problems with sound choppiness when aura was speaking, but it seems that switching to alsa has solved that issue.

For some reason, the game reports that it's running in 60Hz even though the monitor says 85Hz. The fps in station is fairly low, around 30-55 with a geforce 8800 ultra card. Vsync (vblank) is on, but it should still be higher - I blame bad nvidia drivers (others have done some testing on that, showing that the nvidia drivers do indeed suck for the 8 series in linux).

In space, all icons are at the same place (usually at the ship it seems) for some reason. Same thing with the map.

sorry i didnt reply here sooner, but theres a chance you can fix this by deleting the eve online preferences folder in ~library/preferences. thats where the client stores all the stuff that would otherwise go in my documents in doze, as well as cider config stuff for the game. beyond that folder and the game app theres nothing that gets modified anywhere else on your computer.
if that doesnt fix things you should try running some other game that uses 3d hardware to check that its not a problem with hardware (overheating, et al).

ok, progress report so far:

1) client installed fine, no problems (text of the help bubbles is wrong on the type of installation screen by the way)
2) got my password from CCP (thanks)
3) I'm in. Took FOREVER to "load bulk data"
4) character creation works like a charm
5) corrupted texture on the asteroid mining station you can see in the tutorial, on the amarr station as well
6) i want the "tool" and "ships" menus added to tranquility. pretty please? :))
7) the "give skills" process seems broken: a progress bars does appear but nothing else happens after that
8) where are the options we have with the normal Cedega launcher (fullscreen, graphics options etc)?
The defaults options are not very good when using 2 screen

It has now been 5 minutes and the client is still stuck on the "acquiring bulk data" screen.
My "normal" eve installation works fine (tested it 5 seconds before) so the problem seems to be with either the server or the client ...

The "acuiring bulk data" step took a loooooooong time for me. Just wait a bit more. Go and have a coffee or something. And walk the dog. And make dinner. And breakfast. Stuff like that.

Well, i've avoided error #256 as mentioned above - just placed dat- and md5-file in ~/Desktop/<any-name>, if placed inside home directory or on Desktop installer finds them and returns error for some reason.
I'm happy, now i'll try to log in :)
Got wrong password error, too.
First impressions... any operation (config startup/game startup) has huge delay, maybe caused by some security checks (so that cedega engine will run only eve, not anything else).
Personally, i don't like fullscreen login window (maybe just've got used to old way it looks).
No way to alt-tab from it (no hotkeys at all - 'window' isn't managed by WM).
Also i've noticed that wrapper downloaded new 'package'-installer, but hadn't installed it into root. Isn't it better to create repository for these packages so that they'll be updated as all other system components too?
Everything else seems tobe fine so far :P waiting for the password.

I'm only getting the splash screen but nothing happens after that. I'm running Ubuntu and the Install worked without a problem. The Event Log does not show anything about it... Anyone an idea what I could do?

Well, things are looking ...... average! mini maps are now rendering correctly and slider bars are now rendering correctly (was broken in wine). I think I'm seeing a few extra special graphical effects too, but as I'm not flying the same ships or even at similar stations it's hard to say.

However, fps is not better or worse than under wine (I was hoping for a boost! but heh). Whilst you can target things, the targeting box is way off. Normally lower right corner, or slap in the middle of the ship.

But my main beef is the installation. It's not slick guys. The tgz layout is like a file sysem - why? It's just an installer!
Once you have it installed, it did not create any icons or menu entries in my GNOME environment (non root single user install).

CEDEGA_PATH=~/.cedega exec ~/.cedega/.ui/runGUI -GAME EveOnline-linux
Will start the game :)

The slickest install I've seen is a shell script that extracts files from itself to a temporary area and then runs the graphical install. I forget which did that, but from memory it was UT from EPIC/loki games.

loki installer for linux gamers... can be downloaded at linux-gamers.net :)

as of the CEDEGA_PATH=~/.cedega exec ~/.cedega/.ui/runGUI -GAME EveOnline-linux
just use /usr/bin/eve its created when you install the game :)

Installed the Linux version using the rpm, odd bug after installing the rpm I had to manually run a second installation as well, by typing "eve" into the terminal.

Splash screen works agreed to license agreement now just trying to figure out how to change ip address as its given me incompatible version error.

edit got ip set right account didn't work, have sent email.

Also log in screen appeared full-screen, looked like it altered my display resolution. The Gnome Pannel's I have setup were bleeding through (see screen shot) at the top and bottom and it would not allow me to alt-tab, will try in KDE later. For now running in it's own window using config tool provided and disabling DXgrab option seems to fix this.

edit 3: Also left this in my SELinux logfile:

Once you have it installed, it did not create any icons or menu entries in my GNOME environment (non root single user install).
Agreed... my vision of perfect installation:
Installer asks only 1 question - if i want it to dl game and install it or if i already have data file on my PC.
No root installation (as far as i understood multi-user install is root install), it's stupid - users can't update client at all. And setting write permissions for root space goes against commonly used practice. If i want to install it as root - i'll login as root and install. Everything placed in root has to be processed using package manager. And checkinstall -D isn't solution cuz as far as i understand list of eve files is changed from time to time.
ALL files should be stored in ~/.eve folder, please no forced creation of ~/EVE - i hated it in wine, and game couldn't be launched if folder was deleted.
Engine and installer should come as package (the most convenient way; for me, at least) and be updated from repo. Repo for engine and installer, updates from TQ for game itself. Maybe separate installer for singularity with eve_test engine package and that will install SiSi1 game into ~/.eve_test...
And released installer should either follow standard gtk/qt themes or utilize cool graphics that matches login window (last released theme, currently black from rev2)
Also package name and version of installer are weird, something like 'eve' and '0.0.0.35' would be highly appreciated in the release :P

have you changed any settings in the cedega gui ?
i had some issues when choosing some basic tweaks. if the problem persists, try launching eve in a window (use the cedega gui for it)
