Solved: 6 Years, 2 Months, 2 Weeks ago Black Plague doesn't start under Debian Etch

Hi. I played Overture few month ago ; since I updated my Debian Etch and now Overture and BlackPlague don't start.

When I launch one game or the other it crash and I have this message in the hlp.log :
Init low level graphics
Setting video mode: 800 x 600 - 32 bpp
ERROR: Could not set display mode setting a lower one!
FATAL ERROR: Unable to initialize display!

I have a Geforce 8800 and the 800x600 mode is working fine if I try this mode.

Any idea to help me ?

Oops ! I re-installed the Nvidia driver and now it works. Probably the driver was mis-installed.

So. It works and it's a great game ! Smile Thanks

You need to make sure you have the 32bit libs installed as well.. Penumbra is a 32bit only application, and requires the 32bit libs installed.. check all of your xorg-x11-drv-nvidia files.

rpm -qa xorg-x11-drv-nvidia\*
make sure you have the 32bit and 64bit -libs package.

Thanks a lot, that solved my problem. Although, I have another one and have created a topic for that: link

Hi BLooDCorpse,

which 32 libs have you installed?
$ rpm -qa | grep i586 > libs32.txt
