@zwastik this is a know problem with the current libxml2 package, version 2.11.5-1. It has been fixed in the upcoming 2.12 version, but until then, all you can do is downgrade to 2.10.4-6.

Oh my, Eternal Lands Crashed - Don't Panic!

A few of things you can try:
1) Make sure your system is up to date, especially your video drivers.
2) If the client crashes repeatedly, try changing some settings.  Either by directly modifying the configuration file (e.g. gedit ~/.elc/main/el.ini). Or clicking the settings button window at the login screen.
    i) Enable the "Poor Man" option in the "Details" tab of the setting window.  Or edit the configuration file and set "#poor_man=1".
    ii) Disable the "Use animation program" option in the "Adv Video" tab of the setting window.  Or edit the configuration file and set "#use_animation_program=0".

If you continue to have problems check the Eternal Lands forums, especially the "Help Me" and "Bug Report" sections.  If you post a message make sure you include information about your system; i.e video driver and version, operating system and version.  Make sure you check your error log for clues too and include the contents in any forum report.

This information about your graphic hardware and software may help.

You are right: the problem with my mesa driver. Sorry.

encelo commented on 2022-04-09 10:21 (UTC)

The game works fine on my computer, I don't think the message you received while compiling is related in any way.

It seems a problem with creating the OpenGL context. Maybe the game doesn't support your GPU + drive combination? What are your specs?

Leonardo19 commented on 2022-04-09 10:16 (UTC)

While compilling I received the message that the package contains a link to '$srcdir' directory.

As result: [/home/myuser/eternallands/src/Eternal-Lands-1.9.6.1/gl_init.c:310] Failed to create game window, going to exit.

encelo commented on 2022-04-08 10:50 (UTC)

Updated client, data and sounds to 1.9.6.1. Thanks @pjbroad!

pjbroad commented on 2022-04-07 23:57 (UTC)

You might be interested in a new stable release containing a few bug fixes. https://github.com/raduprv/Eternal-Lands/releases/tag/1.9.6.1

encelo commented on 2021-12-24 18:15 (UTC)

Updated client and data to 1.9.6.0

  • Added openssl to the depends array

encelo commented on 2021-07-27 21:30 (UTC) (edited on 2021-07-27 21:31 (UTC) by encelo)

Using CMake to build the game

  • Removed pkgconf from the makedepends array
  • Added cmake to the makedepends array
  • Renamed version custom variable to _version
