Open the EVE Configuration utility, press "Configure Options" in there go to the Audio tab and change "hw" under the alsa option to default for both CTL Device and PCM Device. After this all should work normally.

I had clear the two fields from "hw" and had wrote in the two fields "default" and started again.
It is the same problem Eve Client start with the Pictures of Revelution 2 and than stoped it. Whats wrong ? I am new in the world of Linux perhaps i must put in the fields the path to the drivers of ALSA devices? Some peoble write that the client has problem with ATI cards is that right?

Thanks for help?

I am also running into this issue, even after today's patch. I have eve setup to start in an 800x600 window, and the sound settings are set to default for both also fields. I have also disabled memory mapping for the sound, for the time being. At this time I still have had no luck other then the splash screen starting up, then a black window that pops up for 8 seconds and then the whole thing vanishes.

Alright, did some extra digging, and setup a debug log, this is what I have found:

290164 - 0005:warn:dosfs:DOSFS_FindUnixName 'd3drg8x.dll' not found in '/home/cbowlby/.cedega/EVE Online/c_drive/windows/system32'

Which tells me not all of the d3d components are getting installed during the initial process. If I could figure out how to run the d3d redistrib package via the cedega package supplied with eve-o then I might be able to get this working, but I have not had a chance to get that part figured out :/

i have the same problem, i click on eve-online, get the startup splash screen, then it disappears. That's it.

I've tried this with 7.10 Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Fedora 8.

Any help would be appreciated.

does anyone have any suggestions? I click on the eve icon to start the game, i get the eve revelations splash screen, then nothing happens. I've tried a fresh install of Fedora 7, 8, Ubuntu 7.10, and Kubuntu 7.10 and all do exactly the same thing. the client will patch itself and everything seems normal. i've even tried changing the audio from hw to default. nothing works and its the same problem no matter what distro of linux i use.

please help.
