This sounded promising, but I am still getting the same SDL_init() error.

I have removed "sdl12-compat" and installed "sdl" (from AUR). I have also re-installed "firestorm-bin". Not dice. Can anyone thing of a step I might gave skipped or done incorrectly?

Replacing sdl2-compat with sdl(AUR) fixed it for me.

It still fails the same way :(

@lavaflyer You might be missing the multilib repo. Check your pacman.conf.

Hi all, I am getting errors when trying to run firestorm-bin (versions 6.6.14 and (the new) 6.6.17). Note that this is on an older machine I used to use for firestorm (1-2 years ago), but it did work then.

A small window pops up that says, "sdl_init() failure, window creation error".

Also, the console has quite a lot of stuff, but of particular interest I see "sdl_init() failed! dsp: No such audio device"

I've tried many things, including disabling audio via command-line options, but I think audio might be a red herring, especially given the window creation error. I'd appreciate any ideas or info on how to get this working again.

Unrelated note: when making the package ("makepkg -s"), I twice get a security error regarding use of the "find" commands. I commented these out to get the script able to complete:

#find app_settings skins -type f -execdir chmod 644 "{}" +
#find -L . -type l -delete

Again, this may not be related, but adding it here for completeness. And any ideas very welcome!

Thanks for the update @chungy!

I'll hopefully have this updated today. Haven't had access to my PC in a few days.

@HackThePlanet, 6.6.16 has been pulled by the devs because it had bugs affecting large groups of people:

Hoping for @chungy to provide the fixed version 6.6.17 soon. It's only been out for a day or so.

Could help me figure out why i can't actually download the source package? I get this on install, and when i also click the link in the list of files it says page can't be found. Been like that for a few months now-

curl: (22) The requested URL returned error: 404 ==> ERROR: Failure while downloading Aborting...

There is a new, bugfix release, version 6.6.17 (70368).

Please, update the package.

Thank you very much for maintaining the package in AUR.
