1.75.3 causes Ubuntu to freeze...

Post by Dragonfire » Mon Aug 01, 2011 12:11 am

This has happened three times in a row before I just gave up all together. At some point during Oolite gameplay, Ubuntu hard freezes (meaning, I can't move my mouse, I have no keyboard input, and nothing is moving or working.) I am forced to do a hard reboot. This didn't happen until after I installed 1.75.3 (upgrading from the working version 1.75.2.) What is going on?

The only other program I installed was Alma Sound Mixer, unless automatic updates installed something bad. Hmm. (All the same, spaceflight shall now occur on the Windows 7 side.)

Hi Dragonfire.

Some feedback for the following questions could help:

How did you upgrade to 1.75.3; by full install or by executing oolite-update?
Which Ubuntu release?
What Ubuntu architecture are you using; 64bit or 32bit?
Could you start oolite form a command line and post the terminal output and the Latest.log at a freeze?
Is oolite freezing in full screen or windowed mode?

Thanx!

You could try the alternative speech library. In a terminal window execute the following commands
(replace <Oolite installation path> by /opt/Oolite or ~/GNUstep/Applications/Oolite depending on your installation)

Code: Select all

$ sudo cp -p <Oolite installation path>/oolite-deps/lib/libespeak.so.1 <Oolite installation path>/oolite-deps/lib/libespeak.so.1.portaudio
$ sudo cp -p <Oolite installation path>/oolite-deps/lib/libespeak.so.1.pulseaudio <Oolite installation path>/oolite-deps/lib/libespeak.so.1
If this doesn't address the issue, then you can always rollback to the previous state:

Code: Select all

$ sudo cp -p <Oolite installation path>/oolite-deps/lib/libespeak.so.1.portaudio <Oolite installation path>/oolite-deps/lib/libespeak.so.1
Send some feedback... Cheers!
