If the game is crashing for you near startup with a SIGILL instruction,
you probably have an older Athlon chip. This build should fix it: http://icculus.org/~icculus/tmp/lugaru-lnxbin-10142005.tar.bz2
If that corrects the issue, please drop me a line and let me know.
2.5.0 is probably going to stay in beta through the weekend. Hopefully there
will be a Linux and Mac OS X client release next week. We were aiming for
a simultanous release, but it just didn't work out that way. Soon.
For now, here's JUST THE LINUX SERVER BINARY: http://icculus.org/~icculus/tmp/aops250-lnxded-justbins.tar.bz2
You need the 2.5.0 Windows package (at a bazillion megabytes, I didn't
want to repackage it for this...if you want it all nice and tidy on
Linux, wait for the official release).
Install the game on Windows, copy it to a Linux box, unpack that
in the game's System directory. Tweak and run. If it doesn't work, you
can report bugs at https://bugzilla.icculus.org/
, or wait for the
official release (but please, do report bugs!).
If the server hangs near startup, export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.10 and
rerun it. We'll probably force everyone to an NPTL-based glibc for the
next version, which fixes this problem better (but leaves older systems
in the dust...lame).
Other game info (including ones you expect to be here) will be coming soon.
