View Full Version : [Linux] Can't run HoN 2.0.3 on ubuntu 10.10
12-22-2010, 09:12 PM
I started using linux a few days ago, before that HoN worked fine on Windows.(same pc)
I downloaded HoN 2.0.2 from this site installed it by going to Downloads>HoNClient>Properties>permissions>allow as program.
Then terminal popped up and installed it. I had to go to the HoN folder and click on HoN-86x to run it. after a black and white zapping on the screen it started but when I joined a game it would crash at the loading screen.
The next day HoNClient-2.0.3 came out i had uninstalled the previous version. installed 2.0.3 the same way but now it wont even run but the HoN symbol does show up at the games in applications.
any help would be very nice , thank you.
You should have received a GUI for the install asking you where you would like to install
Once installed (the default of ~/HoN) it also should have put an entry in your applications menu (if you want to run from the install directory use hon.sh not hon.x86, hon.sh will set some lib searchpaths).
If you launch like that does it still fail?
Could you provide the infomation from my signature (console.log and the output of the bash 1liner, you may need todo: sudo apt-get install mesa-utils for it to work)
I suspect you are using software rendering at the moment and thus why it is taking its time tostart up

I have tried that but still nothing.
I have no idea how to start consol.log and zip it so i can send it.
The sudo apt-get install mesa-utils said everything is up to date.
my systems specs
2x Intel core duo cpu E8400@3.00Ghz
ATI Radeon HD 3450

X Error of failed request: BadRequest (invalid request code or no such operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 159 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 19 (X_GLXQueryServerString)
Serial number of failed request: 18
Current serial number in output stream: 18
this is what it reads.
could you provide: /var/log/Xorg.0.log
I suspect your drivers were installed/configured wrongly

bash: /var/log/Xorg.0.log: Permission denied
I hope i have done this correctly?
well ... /var/log/Xorg.0.log is a file so you can't execute it
or pastebin it
Also some system infomation ( as requested in my sig AND in post 2 would be great) cause if this is an ATi system I think I know what you have todo ...
and if it is an ati system I would like some time back for waiting...

I need to see it.
this also i have no clue how to run console.log and URL
console.log is just a text file. use something like fileroller and make it a zip and then follow the instructions to submit the logfile zip and post the url here.
iam sure ATI has something to do with it because i have a ATI catalyst centre in preferences
Basically your drivers are not installed correctly.
