    ut2004 - error starting


    I downloaded the demo of Unreal Tournament 2004. After installing it, when I tried to launch the application, it'd bring up the little load screen, and then just quit.

    So I launched it in the terminal, and got an error about the glx driver. So I searched for that and apt-get installed nvidia-glx. I'm no longer getting that error, but I have the same problem. The new error is:

    ./ut2004
    open /dev/[sound/]dsp: Device or resource busy
    Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    Xlib: extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    Signal: SIGSEGV [segmentation fault]
    Aborting.


    Crash information will be saved to your logfile.


    I can't make sense of it, but I'm pretty much a newby. Thanks for the help.

    Re: ut2004 - error starting

    well lets see if I can interpret any of this
    Code:
    open /dev/[sound/]dsp: Device or resource busy
    problem with the sound (would be a problem to look at after you get ut running)
    Code:
    Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    Xlib:  extension "GLX" missing on display ":0.0".
    I'm 99% sure that ut's dev team states that this message doesn't mean anything. read a few "readme" files if you don't think so.
    Code:
    Signal: SIGSEGV [segmentation fault]
    this means the program tried reading a spot in memory it shouldn't so linux killed it. But it doesn't really mean much.
    Code:
    Crash information will be saved to your logfile.
    so I would look at that logfile to see if its more helpful.

    Bah. I wish they would tell me where the logfile is in the faq, because I can't find it. As soon as I do, I'll post it.
