Hi somelidlguser

Chances are high you are missing some 32bit libraries, as ETQW is a 32bit application running on your 64bit Linux system.
Try installing the following packages:

Code: Select all

lib32gcc1 libc6-i386 libstdc++5:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386

Damn it, that would have been too easy :D

  • Can you run other 32bit OpenGL applications?
  • Do you see anything with verbose logging? LIBGL_DEBUG=verbose ./etqw
  • ETQW has two client binaries/startscripts, is there a difference if you run the client with renderer threading support ./etqw-rthread

The last thing worth a try is replacing the included libraries with your system's 32bit library counterparts.
