Game wont start on gentoo 64bit

I tried to export the steam lib path as described here

[](< base_url >/index.php?/topic/24008-cant-start-game-in-lubuntu/?p=278930)

and i end up with

Setting breakpad minidump AppID = 212070

it would be nice to have a 64bit version of the game



3.19.0-gentoo #1 SMP PREEMPT Mon Feb 23 05:55:47 CET 2015 x86_64 AMD Athlon(tm) X4 860K Quad Core Processor AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux

OpenGL renderer string: GeForce GTX 560 Ti/PCIe/SSE2
OpenGL core profile version string: 4.4.0 NVIDIA 346.35

On my laptop with gentoo 32bit it runs just fine.


Nevertheless thanks for this great game with Linux support :slight_smile:

Did you try to start it from Steam directly? I can’t only start the game alone either.

Just found the bug, i have 2 screens with separated x-server and the game starts fine on the first screen but this is my second smaller one. As a workaround i have to unplug the small screen before X starts.



You can start steam games from console, the client must be running and add a “steam_appid.txt” with the steam game id in to the game dir, its good for error checking.

oh ok, good to know :slight_smile:

Your Steam crashed. It is not a our bug.
