Hi Everyone.

I am trying to run Neverwinter Nights. An old game to be certain, but there are some great servers still running on the Internet -- most notably the CoPap servers. While the graphics for games may have gotten better, I don't think the environments on Avlis can be beat...

Anyway, I am trying to run nwn, and I keep getting segmentation faults. When I look at my strace, I get this:

Code:
open("/usr/share/locale/en_US.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/bash.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en_US.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/bash.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en_US/LC_MESSAGES/bash.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/bash.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/bash.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/bash.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
fstat(2, {st_mode=S_IFCHR|0600, st_rdev=makedev(136, 0), ...}) = 0
mmap(NULL, 4096, PROT_READ|PROT_WRITE, MAP_PRIVATE|MAP_ANONYMOUS, -1, 0) = 0x7fc792bd7000
open("/usr/share/locale/en_US.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en_US.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en_US/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en.UTF-8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/usr/share/locale/en/LC_MESSAGES/libc.mo", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)

Then it immediately segfaults. I don't know if these errors are the cause, or not, but it is all I have to go on for the moment.

The output is accurate: the files do not exist on my system. I am running an AMD64 system.

I have re-read the locale doc for Gentoo, but I didn't get any insights.

This is my /etc/locale.gen:
Code:
en_US.UTF-8 UTF-8


I ran locale-gen.

And then I ran locale -a and got:
Code:
C
POSIX
en_US.utf8


So it looks like everything is normal... but something clearly is weird here.

Any insights?

Thank you!

-G

Hmm.. I tried to use that graphical installer by ravage, and I think that was the problem. I have found an old copy installed on another pc, and it runs on that pc. When I moved it to my primary pc, it starts to run, but crashes immediately upon game start.

I think it may be having trouble with the open source ati drivers. The old pc had an nvidia card...
