    ut2k4...startup


    I know that this question has been asked but I pretty positive that I have my ati card installed. I start Unreal Tournament 2004 and it shows the splash screen. Afterwards the splash screen closes and that's it.

    I'm pretty positive that my ATI card is installed cause I played Enemy Territory with a high fps and I can play SuperTux with OpenGL. So why isn't it loading? The installation seemed to go fine.

    I should hope you're pretty positive it's installed. Seeing it on the shelf still in the box is usually a good indication it's not.

    Seriously though, try running ut2004 from a console window and print the errors it gives out here.

    When I try to run it from the konsole I get,

    Code:
    floating point exception
    Tried as root and got the same thing.

    Update: What the after I logged in as root and tried it and logged back as a user it worked.....arg hopefully it works from now on.

    Well I tried doing

    Code:
    xhost +
    and then opening a root terminal and then running ut2k4 but then I got
    Code:
    splittik@ghost:~$ /home/splittik/ut2004/ut2004
    Signal: SIGSEGV [segmentation fault]
    Aborting.
    
    
    Crash information will be saved to your logfile.
    splittik@ghost:~$
    Also ut2004 seems to randomly crash at the splash screen now.

    I updated my ut2k4. I got it working one time logged in as root and it played alright but I'm not sure what happened, it exited while loading a map after I finished playing a couple of games. Then I tried as a user and it gave me the
    Code:
    splittik@ghost:~$ sudo /home/splittik/ut2004/ut2004
    Signal: SIGSEGV [segmentation fault]
    Aborting.

    error again...not sure if the random crashing problem during the splash screen is fixed.
