Stepmania Woes

Postby surfjdh on Thu Sep 17, 2009 5:57 pm

I am throughly frustrated with linux mint 7 right now. I cant get THE ONLY GAME I PLAY to run correctly(xserver crashes with the error XIO: fatal IO error 4 (Interrupted system call) on X server ":0.0"
after 145262 requests (145260 known processed) with 0 events remaining.) most of the time the error is as follows (stepmania: Fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server :0.0.). I have the following specs
video=Radeon X850XT-PE (fglrx installed and working,direct rendering working)
cpu= AMD athlon xp 2800+ clocking between 2.173ghz-2.3ghz
ddr2 2gb 400mhz pc3200 i think
linux mint 7
kernel 2.6.28-15 generic
gnome 2.26.1
to make matters worse there is literally nothing on the net(have been searching for days now) that directly correlates to my problem and no one in the mint or Ubuntu irc's has any clue whats going on. On top of all this frustrating information stepmania worked just fine in Linux mint 6, but do i really have to roll back to an older distribution? I mean isn't the point of moving to the most current distro to have MORE SUPPORTED DEVICES AND APPLICATIONS? WTH? Someone please help me.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Did you try launching the game as root from a terminal?

With the happy music and bright colors, I thought this topic title was hilarious. Sorry, not much help. I like Stepmania too, but haven't hooked up my DDR pad in a while.

LOL :p

Also, I think it would be good if you could please edit your first post and put SOLVED in the title, so others realise this is resolved. Cheers. :)
