Hello everybody,

I have a linux system (openSuSE 11.3, 64bit) after updating from 11.2 (32 bit) to 11.3 (64 bit) Foldit broke. I downloaded the current version and tried different things:

1. Move the old Foldit directory to Foldit_old and untar the new version.

2. Install the new version over the old version.

In both cases I got a problem with my username not appearing and the input field being ghosted, which I solved by clicking one of the selection buttons.

When I tried to connect though in case (1) it showed that I have done only three tutorials, and when i clicked the 4th, it crashed.

In case (2) I get the error message depicted in the attached screenshot and the program finishes. What can I do to get it running again?

Best regards,

George

Search.....

I found:

"ia32-libs"

Q: I am using a 64-bit Linux distribution and am unable to log in or contact the server in any way, I have tried many times and keep getting error messages.
A: You may need to install lib32nss-mdns. Please search for it in your package manager.

"needed freeglut.i686 installed too, not just the x86_64 version"

Required RPM's

For Fedora 13 x86_64, I needed the following i386 RPM's:
alsa-lib
expat
freeglut
glibc
libselinux
libX11
libXau
libXdamage
libXext
libXfixes
libXi
libXxf86vm
libdrm
libgcc
libstdc
libxcb
mesa-dri-drivers
mesa-libGL
mesa-libGLU
nss-mdns

Foldit client is NOT native 64 bit so it need 32 bit libraries to work.

Error writing puzzle Id.

I checked for each of the libs, there are 32/64 bit versions installed for all of them. I have the 32bit compatibility layer installed, so I do not think it is due to a 32/64 bit issue.

Search?

How did you search? By browsing to forum Entries? Is there a search function I have missed?

It seems to be a permission problem.

I have installed Foldit under /usr/local/games as user root:

drwxr-xr-x 9 root root 4096 Jan 8 21:21 Foldit

Now, under the root account it works. under a normal user not. So the question becomes: Do I have to grant write access to the Foldit directory (and the ones bellow) to everybody?
