|Has anyone got this game to work on Gentoo with ATI drivers? I get the start screen / movie, and then about when I get to the main menu screen, the screen goes black and totally locks the system.
I posted to the Anomaly site but no answers there either: http://forum.anomalythegame.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=277&sid=f661389d42a828a44a62551f8797bf33
This is a native Linux port, so I would expect it to work, but with the complete system lock, I am having a hard time finding the error. Other games work fine on my machine.
Reprint from the Anomaly Warzone post:
System freeze after intro movie, yet sound still plays
On Anomaly start up, after the initial intro movie, I get the loading graphic in the bottom right of the screen. Shortly after that, the white cursor comes up on a black screen, and then shortly after that, the cursor will freeze, followed by a hard system freeze. Keyboard stops functioning, mouse stops functioning, and the whole system locks requiring one hold down the power button to power off. What is strange is the music plays in the background without issue even though the system is hard locked.
System is Gentoo with a KDE desktop.

Any help would be appreciated. This is the only game I have that will not run on Linux. All others work fine.
I should also mention I tried running this in a window and it still hard locks the system.
