Solved: 6 Years, 11 Months ago Installation stalled on Kubuntu Lucid

Hi, today I've bought Penumbra from the Humble Indie Bundle and started the installation script. It went fine for some time, until it stopped any progress, and now the windows have been sitting there quite uselessly for some time, now. They are unresponsive. Please, see the screenshot if it can be of any help. Installation already created the relevant entry in the Menu (Applications>Games), but clicking on it does nothing much, apart from some cursor-bouncing.

What should I do? Should I just kill the whole thing? What's next? Many thanks for any help!

Ok, I decided to kill the process in the meantime, and install it again, this time in home rather than usr/local/games. It worked, and didn't stall. However, I was unable to start the game by the menu entry. From Konsole I get:

./penumbra.bin: ./lib/libCgGL.so: no version information available (required by ./penumbra.bin)
./penumbra.bin: ./lib/libCg.so: no version information available (required by ./penumbra.bin)
Penumbra: Overture exited unexpectedly, please check
/home/Sbirulinux/.frictionalgames/Penumbra/Overture/hpl.log
for any error messages
Also try running
ulimit -c unlimited
And re-running Penumbra and try and recreate the error
then submit the generated core file or stack trace

Finally, in the log I read:

What does all this mean? Was this the reason why it wouldn't install the first time? Can I still run the game somehow? Thanks!

I recognize the problem and I think it is an easy fix. I tried to find something here on the forum but couldn't, but if you search for libCg.so you might be more successful.

It has to do with the graphics, so either you need to install hardware drivers or you have to update to a newer version, or use the sustem installed libCg instead of the one that came with the game. But I can't recall exactly what the solution was! I have asked for additional assistance.

Thanks for your quick reply, jens. Alright, I'll wait for further assistance then, for I'm quite new to Linux, and still need to be guided in this sort of things. Many thanks!

please post the output of glxinfo. it's looking like the graphics drivers aren't loaded correctly. the "no version information" warning on libCg can be ignored.. Nvidia provides unversioned libraries that's all.

um. yeah.. I don't believe Matrox cards are supported.. Mainly due to lack of S3TC. Penmbra makes heavy use of textures and Shaders. And from your glxinfo output your card supports neither the S3TC (mostly a driver issue which can't be included in Mesa due to patent issues) and your card does not support shaders. (no GLX_ARB_vertex_shader etc..)

Here is the document with the list of supported graphics cards basically any current ATI or NVidia card will do.. Be wary of older ATI cards and newer linux distributions.. as ATI has dropped driver support for older cards (and thus games won't work).

Oh, I think that the card might be the problem. If I looked it up correctly the card is from 1999/2000 and I'm fairly certain that it is not capable of running the game.
