LinNex problem/question

Hi, I'm zombie mcclure. You may remember me from such catchphrases as "pwnt", "[mnt", and "i suck". I've not been active on the siznervers lately for a variety of reasons, but the most recent and hardest to overcome is the fact that nexuiz will no longer run on my computer! The horror! Here's the deal: since I last fragged, I have migrated from current ubuntu to current mint. That was months ago. A few weeks ago, I tried to run nex, and it didn't work at all. I flailed about in frustration, downloading, installing, synaptic-ing, compiling... each of those things twice probably. Needless to say... I got nowhere. In fact I suspect that my system is a total mess now, though the symptoms have not changed a bit: Nex won't go.

Have I broken a rule about building programs from source (ie, don't do it)? Do I have to delete my /home partition, re-install / and start from scratch? Will them ol' Duke boys ever get out of this one? Kind regards,


First try running the game from a terminal. See what error messages come back and post them here.

Quite possibly some kind of library mismatch exists if you have previously built from source as Mint may well have a different library version than Ubuntu. Rebuilding Nexuiz under Mint may fix this.

Yeah M said you FUBAR'd your comp Zombie, re-install and get back on Nexuiz you are missed! Big Grin
<[-z-]> have you seen the documentary "happy"?
<Samual_> no
<Samual_> it sounds horrible

WTF guise..... delete nexuiz and install xonotic! Keep your old .pk3's tho cuz it has little content. Doku is working on getting a server going, and I hope to have a few running by Wednesday. Also Xonotic outperformed Nexuiz in fps, meaning even with higher quality textures I got a performance boost!

Thanks for the replies. I have run it in terminal, but I've been away from home for a week or so now, and can't remember the output. Back home in a couple of days will post results.
Makr, I also did try to install xonotic... same lack of joy :-(
I guess if worse comes to worst, I could always run it on my Win7 partition... Tongue

Ok, so here is the tail end of terminal output when attempting to execute "nexuiz":
