Here are some specs:
- ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 motherboard
- AMD Black Edition - AMD FX 8320 3.5 GHz - 8-core cpu
- Kingston HyperX FURY Black Series 16 GB RAM
- Sapphire Vapor-X R9 280X Tri-X OC video card
As Operating System I am running Ubuntu 15.04 x64 and (rarely) Windows 7 home premium, also 64bit. On both OS-es I have the ATI Catalyst driver installed and running properly. Other games, like UT2004, Killing Floor (ut2004 mod) and Portal 2 run fine on Linux and/or Windows, so I may assume that the graphical card and driver function properly.
Today I thought it to be a good day to install Unreal Tournament 99, since I already installed a few other useful things like my Masterserver development environment. I recently wrote a tutorial/wiki on installing UT99 on Linux, so I didn't expect it to be a big thing. Per help.ubuntu.com I followed the instructions for Ubuntu, but I immediately got stuck on the libsdl installation -- apparently the tutorial is not completely up-to-date, or the 1.2 versions of libsdl and libgl are considered "lost".
With a lot of Googling I got libsdl and libgl to install on my 64bit system and the installer completed the procedure as expected. But when I tried to start UT, it immediately gave a segfault and closed. I edited my ut99.ini to
Code: Select all
I expect this to be a 64bit OS + ATI card problem, since libgl1.2 had some problems with that in the past. I expect the sound problem to be easily fixed once the graphical problems are solved.
- Has anybody had this problem on RECENT ubuntu versions and/or with ATI cards?
- Has anybody solved this problem for UT99 or any other older game with Unreal Engine 1?
- If all else fails, can UT99 still run on Windows 7 on earlier described hardware/OS?
Thanks in advance.
To add an off-topic treat for everybody who wants to help; if you guys help me out, I will be able to continue, test and expand 333networks' beta interface.
