    Re: Sim city 3000 in Hoary?

    I'm going to copy/paste someone else's solution, I noted it from an earlier thread :

    With a basic install, this is what happens:

    michael@ubuntu:/opt/cxoffice$ sc3u
    sc3u: relocation error: sc3u: symbol _dl_global_scope, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file
    ld-linux.so.2 with link time reference

    Although Loki is closed, there are still product updates available on the net. The site I used was http://public.planetmirror.com/pub/lokigames/patches/ , but any site listed on http://updates.lokigames.com/ will do. Instead of using the generic Loki update tool, which I suspect will not work because their updates server is down, downloaded the latest patch as a ".run" file.

    Run the update script with "--keep". The "--keep" option is VERY important, I was not able to get the script to run otherwise:
    Code:

    sh sc3u-2.0a-x86.run --keep



    Running the game with just "sc3u" results in a segfault. The solution is to instead start ALL Loki games with:
    Code:

    LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 /usr/local/bin/[NAME OF GAME]


    In other words, to start SimCity 3000:
    michael@ubuntu:~$ LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 /usr/local/bin/sc3u

    NB: Some have reported that using LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.4 works better for them. I haven't had a problem with 2.2.5 so far.

    Re: Sim city 3000 in Hoary?

    Hey guys, the above howto worked perfectly in getting my copy of sim city 3000 unlimited up and going. However, sound does not work in it. The game's readme mentioned editing the file ~/.openalrc to enable OSS, but it seems I have no such file in my home directory.

    My sound is currently configured to use ALSA and I have no other sound problems besides this one.

    Any suggestions?

    Hej!

    It doesn't really work for me, the game starts but I get a segmentation fault when I want to load a city. When I start a new one I can't build things like a power plant, streets are messed up (...).

    fcntl: Invalid argument
    fcntl: Invalid argument

    BUG! (Segmentation Fault) Going down hard...
