[Fixed, needs testing] Dying Light refuses to launch
devland commented on 28 June 2018 at 2:35 pm UTC

Leopard18.2 according to Phoronix

Cool, thanks.

Froz1984 commented on 29 June 2018 at 9:25 pm UTC

Bought this game expecting it would work (even with that "hacky" solution)... but well, there goes a refund. Maybe with 18.2 during a future sale.

Even with the OpenGL 4.4 compat profile, Dying Light just crashes on Arch Linux with my AMDGPU and Mesa-git.

I tryed play the game on Ubuntu 18.04 (glibc 2.27) and it didn't run, but I only tested it on Ubuntu 16.04 (glib 2.23) and it run (I don't use 16.04 to play now). The problem is the glibc version 2.27.

Would preloading glibc 2.23 fix the issue on 18.04?

For those who were playing the game via snap, recent updates broke that method again, here's how I fixed it:

I uninstalled solus-runtime-gaming and linux-steam-integration, then downloaded the older versions from here:

https://packages.solus-project.com/lsi/8/
and installed them, and the game ran again

sudo snap remove solus-runtime-gaming linux-steam-integration https://packages.solus-project.com/lsi/8/solus-runtime-gaming_3.0.0_amd64.snap https://packages.solus-project.com/lsi/8/linux-steam-integration_0.6_amd64.snap sudo snap install --dangerous solus-runtime-gaming*.snap sudo snap install --dangerous --devmode linux-steam-integration*.snap snap run linux-steam-integration



further digging into the process while its running reveals the following libs being used:
