Try disabling anti-aliasing, fixed it for me.


Thanks, worked for me too!

By my rough guestimate 600-700 linux account players easily pay for a developers salary if that developer's entire purpose was to test and support linux.


There is probably less than 600 players. There is probably more than 600 accounts though.

I've been in some alliances with a hundreds of people on teamspeak. Of all those people that I've checked (a few hundred), I've only seen ONE another player connected to TS in Linux. I've also only seen about 5 people connected to TS on a Mac.. So 2 Linux, 5 Mac. In comparison to WIndows, both numbers are very low.

Anyway, CCP did not needed to fix the last problem. The problem was not in EVE - it is a portability issue in Python triggering an incompatibility error in Wine. CCP dev only did a very small work around the python bug. Fixing it on Wine's end would be much more difficult.

It would be nice if at least a few devs simply *test* EVE under Wine, not just for purposes of having us running the game but for EVE's general QA. There are errors that will show up under Wine immediately that could be very difficult to track down under native Win32 API.


PS. If we didn't have to override C runtime to Wine's builtin from native, then the entire EVE crash would not have occurred in the first place! So we need a fix in Wine to allow native C runtime once again Blink

I just wanted to add my thanks. Because of the support for wine on linux, I went on and upgraded my account from a trial (playing on Ubuntu 12.04 and Win 7) to a paying acct early. I know it isn't much, but this is the little bit of thanks I can give to CCP Snorlax. Please keep us linux users in mind, even if we are unsupported.

With CCP now fixing this issue (BIG thanks for that, CCP Snorlax!) I'm not sure wether I should post my somewhat very ugly temporary solution. It involves patching and recompiling wine from source and might break other windows apps (and possibly more).

But I was able to sit a Jita IV Station for at least 2 hours without a single crash. It might not work for you though. I didn't get feedback from the people in "Linux" so far.

Nevertheless it would be much better if the problem gets fixed either by CCP or the wine devs.

Edit: The patch above was created against wine 1.4 but also might apply against newer versions.


using this patch on wine 1.5.2 - patching EVE is correctly without changing build,native on the wine

Humm this could be significant did you test without the patch?

Either 1.5 fixes some problems, or the patch in some way resolves the problems with the updater.

Could be interesting to know either way.

Yesterday i built wine from git on debian testing, without patches, and eve ran with 3 clients without problems. I do have antialiasing disabled though. I also tried show info and shipviewer on a T3 ship and it worked fine.

Also to note, i did not have to mess with internal/native dll overrides. eve ran with the same config i used to patch it.
