Openarena installs but does not run to the menu

https://bpaste.net/show/bff870b4e56d

If its about q3 engine, then quake3 does not even build.

talks about asm


I dont have openarena or quake3 since I had Gentoo-hardened.
Can't believe it myself..............




Even though, there is no question mark,  this post is asking for help.....

Did you download it from openarena.ws, or from some other place?

Excuse me, what do you mean with "I don't have openarena"?

I don't know Hardened Gentoo... with a quick search, I read it's a security-enhanced version of Gentoo Linux distro. Maybe those enhanced security plugins may block some mechanisms required by the game? I have no idea.

Gentoo downloads it from sourceforge/oarena
and to make sure it is correct file it checks it with SHA256 5a8faf7f5b51f351b0a1618c06b6b98a5f1a6758f1d39818de2c87df2a0bac4a

"I don't have openarena" Its a kids term for not being able to play it - run it - open it.


("Maybe those enhanced security") This is not the case in theory because, it is common to be notified about that security system when it happens to block something. And it does not notify about OA anything. But who knows.... I dont know everything about that system..

it is amd64 x2 6000+ cpu    and ati hd6850 on opensource drivers.

I will check the openarena zip from home page whether it differs.. Currently my openarena-0.8.8.zip    is    425189255 bytes.

People should be aware that Sourceforge nowadays is messing hard with any app whose code has been hosted there, even if the app devs don't host code there anymore (case in point: GIMP).

As the page http://openarena.ws/download.php?view.4
shows the openarena-0.8.8.zip md5sum to be 9f353d96d7889c377349d692c3905e5b
it is the same as Gentoo downloaded to the download dir for install.

My newest discovery shows, that the trouble is in a combination of 32bit and hardened system. It is possible to fix it by writing a patch, but i dont know anything about assembly programming, or even how is that language called properly.

But I think some informations could be useful. In case somebody knows about it.

No, to say that SourceForge is messing with "every hosted program" is completely and blatantly false.

Yes they mucked with GIMP installer for windows after the developer left, and that was very unethical.

In the case of FileZilla, the developers agreed to be apart of their "offers" program and receive money for doing so.  Many users of FileZilla got malware on their computer via these "offers" and will never trust FileZilla again.

How did you reach that discovery? Do you have a link to a page which talks about that?

How
There is something I forgot to say. The patch is about quake 3 as it allows to install it, but makes segfault when run. So I have nothing about openarena.
I was able to talk about it on gentoo hardened irc and get the informations.

I was just told about it like that, that the 32 bit system does not have enough asm handlers to support the security and openarena  together, but that the 64bit has way more than enough by design.
