update to dev preview on linux fails. tested with previous fold.it installation and a clean copy from the website.

Foldit Error: Could not load library: cmp-binary-6619bfbccebb4219d44e825b64fffb2c/game_library.so: undefined symbol: _ZN4game11application6novice10NoviceGameC1Ev.

This should be fixed now. Please reopen if it is still a problem.

I'm on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and I can't even download the DP.
I changed the "update_group" to "beta" but fold.it didn't update.
I tried four times, then I rebooted my computer and tried another two times: no update!
Now I'm playing the "main" although "update_group" is still on "beta".
I had the same problems with the last DP.

Can you run the game, let the update fail, quit, and then post the log file here?

Right now I'm running two long scripts, so I just looked into the log file and copypasted the first lines (emphasis added):

That is odd. Those versions don't exist anymore. If you run the game, go to menu, then general options, does it tell you which update group you are in? Maybe this is a permissions issue with Windows 7?

Menu -> General Options never told me which update group I was in.
There's only the version: 2af093504616b88a11257237160534ec

I do get updates, but only of the main group, not of the beta (of course: when Foldit can't open options.txt then it isn't able to read that I changed my update group to beta)

I myself can actually open options.txt in C:\ProgramData\foldit and now that I took a closer look, I can say the file's content is pretty outdated ("puzzle_dialog/puzzle" : "296: Hold it! 3")
(I attached the file to this message)

When I changed update_group to beta for the first time in Windows 7 (a few weeks ago), the system did not let me save the changed options.txt. Then I gave me further permission rights for this file and eventually I could.

Can you search for any other options.txt on your system? Maybe it is looking somewhere else?

You're right, there is another options.txt (and log.txt - the one in C:\ProgramData\foldit was outdated, too) in C:\Benutzer\Madde\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ProgramData\foldit.
So, for the next DP I'll change that one.
