Okay, here it is, hilarious workaround time. This renders t3s invisible. And probably does evil stuff to your game.

Also, totally send me isk.

You'll need to locate your eve cache folder and adjust this from my settings.

Open a console, and input this:

while true; do rm -r ~/.wine/drive_c/users/murph/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/CCP/EVE/c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility/cache/ships/*; done

This will start a continual loop that is deleting the generated ships cache (only t3s are generated, i think).

Now, in a second console, go start eve your usual way.


just to confirm that this makes the game playable. the only issue is when switching to a t3 while at a pos (did not test at a station).

Try changing this loop to:

while true; do rm -r ~/.wine/drive_c/users/murph/Local\ Settings/Application\ Data/CCP/EVE/c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility/cache/ships/*.lock; done


That should allow you to see the generated t3 ships. The lock file that is generated is intended to prevent multiple EVE instances from thrashing - both wasting cpu cycles and potentially corrupting the files with simultaneous writes.

I'm trying to find alternatives of dealing with this - worst case I'll disable this if I detect we're running under Wine and you guys have to live with slightly worse performance when multiboxing.

Removing the .lock files doesn't work for me either.

Only the removing the files with extension .black works.
On the plus side the rest of the files are some other caches which we get to keep using as intended ;)

So the script becomes:
Quote:

(cd ~/.wine/drive_c/users/Your_Username/Local\ Settings/Application\Data/CCP/EVE/c_program_files_ccp_eve_tranquility/cache/ships
while true; do
rm -f *.black;
done)&
PID=$!

env WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=Path_To_Wineprefix wine explorer /desktop=EVE,1920x1080 Path_To_EXE/drive_c/Program\ Files/CCP/EVE/eve.exe

kill $PID

I have no idea what the .black files are, but removing them disables T3 previewing ...etc (I don't own a T3)

Regarding wine detection: (in case the issue can not be fixed)
How about simply adding either a menu entry in settings named "Linux overrides" or put it in some config file ?
So if this option is ticked off or included client falls back to whatever code you had before the patch (regarding the .black issue). Or alternatively to whatever fixes are needed.

And yes I don't mind you counting how many ppl use Linux :)
It might turn out that there is plenty of us \o/ so just another fun statistic...

Edit :
The sad thing is that now this script eats more cpu than the eve client :(
Spec:
i5 2500k
gtx 570
8g ram

Client crashed again :( This time in space, no idea what happened. I was about to dock up.
Have to test weather removing all cache files fixes it...

e: ^^^ Nice job man. It's good to see a dev posting in here again too.

Yeah, if you're on jita undock, forget playing eve forever on Linux. Script doesn't work at all in those scenerios either.

Which is too bad, I wanted to watch the firework display planned.

It took me a couple hours to get out of Jita when I made that mistake.

I have a fruit cup and I'm not afraid to use it.

Ive had it before when X has locked up in such a way that Ctrl+Alt+F1 wouldn't work for me either. Either the keys were being intercepted or the screen was overlayed with nothing and the console was working underneath (although the command to restart X didn't work).

I've had it were only ssh'ing in would allow me to kill X and go from there. When wine dies it can be nasty :)

Well you have a binary blob driver and if thats involved in a crash then it could cause some nasty things to happen. At least the box technically didn't crash, just the UI (even the cli). As long as you can ssh in you're fine. When windows locks up we all know what happens there...

Thanks so much for spending your time on this!

Does anyone else using the cache-clearing workaround find they can't see into cargo holds any more? T3 models I can live without, but the contents of cargo are a little more important. A Sisi fix is great news.

I would just like to reiterate how cool it is for a dev to look into this for us. I do all my work under Linux a lot of times while playing EVE. Its been a real pain to reboot into Windows whenever I feel like playing and not being able to get work done at the same time.

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.

http://pastebin.com/iMN6FT86

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.

For this people should consider doing it the way I do; for any wine with custom patches do;

./configure --prefix=/usr/local/wine-1.5.2-Evefix

then you can play eve with the custom wine by;

/usr/local/wine-1.5.2-Evefix/bin/wine eve.exe

This will keep your system wine seperate, I must have about 20 wines in my /usr/local for all manor of games. Then when wine/eve is fixed, just delete it :) all nicely in the same place.

I manually edited the files in question in my wine 1.5.2 build dir, but the lines in question were in the same location.
I am busy re - make'ing
will edit this post once the build/install is done and I test (will try just opening the SHIP preview in station - don't really want to undock my carrier into a potentially hostile situation Shocked)


test seems to be successful, I have previewed various T3 ships with no ill effect

I wrote a snippet of script to remove black files in cache if you need it:

You need to have sys-fs/inotify-tools installed and inotify support in your kernel.
That remove .black file at each close_write file event.


Quote:
#!/bin/bash

cd "/home/YOUR-USER/.wine/drive_c/users/YOUR-USER/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE/c_program_files_eveonline_tranquility/cache/ships"

do
if [ "${file#*.}" = "black" ] ; then
rm $file
