Scoregasm on Linux 64bit.
So, i know a few of you have been having some trouble getting Scoregasm running on 64bit linux machines. I’ve actually got one set up now, and i’m using it as a main OS these days (my distro of choice ATM being crunchbang). Anyhowm i managed to get Scoregasm running on this machine, so i though i’d share how i did so.
First, i’ll point out that my distro is Debian based, so your mileage may vary for non-debian systems. If you’ve got the game running on your 64bit linux system, please let me and other users know how in the comments below, especially if it’s not debian based.
Right, on with the show! First, Scoregasm is a 32bit app, so we’ll need to enable multi-architecture support. You’ll likely need to be a super user for most of these cammands, so if they spit out an error, put sudo in front and enter your password. You’ll need to enter all of these commands in a terminal, unless you fancy trying it with synaptic.
dpkg --add-architecture i386
Next, you’ll need to install some 32bit libs.
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Next, as current debian repos don’t have the right version of libssl in, grab this .deb file from one of the mirror links on the page:
I used the GDebi package installer to install the lib. Your system might not have this installed, but if you right click on the .deb you just downloaded you should see a suitable program that will install it for you. Alternatively, and i haven’t tested this, you might be able to un-package libssl and libcrypto from that package and put the files in the Linux Extras folder in your Scoregasm directory.
This should install every thing you need to run the game (you can check if there are any missing libs by typing
ldd Scoregasm into a terminal you’ve pointed to your Scoregasm directory. You can ignore libbass here, as it’s opened in a different way.
When i first tried to run the game after doing the above, the game crashed after the loading screen. If this happens to you, i fixed it by installing some extra sound libs:
sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugins:i386
After that, it ‘just worked!’.
Remember, you must run the game from the startLinux.sh script, or it’ll still fail in spectacular fashion!
Anyway, i hope that helps some of you run the game. I’m by no means a linux expert so some of this may be rubbish advice but it’s worked for me on my system.
Let me know if it helps you out!
