CCP Snorlax best lax!

I'll hunt you down and like every post you ever made!

Thank you for every second you spent on this. This is exactly what I meant in the thread about official client ( https://forums.eveonline.com/default.aspx?g=posts&t=75236&p=2 ).

Developers time is a premium commodity. When one of them devotes part of his/her time to us, it's a very welcome gift. We can't pretend a single instant more than we already get - and we get a lot, indeed.

The inotify script is also beautiful. Kludgy, but far more elegant than a while/true/rm cycle.

Are we adopting CCP Snorlax as a mascot then?
Perhaps a monthly fruit basket for dedication to the most masochistic sub-section of the customer base? We need to keep him healthy n all, otherwise I'd suggest a pint from each of us.

And thank you to all you other able analytical minds in this thread that helped chase down and identify the cause of the crashes. I am in awe of your skills.

Great to see support from Snorlax on this issue, even if neither CCP nor the Wine devs are really to blame for this issue.

I'm looking forward for the patch, and will surely try it out in Sisi and give Feedback.

My attempt at a fix is now on Sisi - please give it a go and report back.

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.


Confirming this patch works against 1.5.2 wine-git sources, at least previewing T3 ships doesn't crash client anymore.

Tengu preview works, you are officially my hero once this fix comes to the live server.

Does it fix crashes in space ?
I did encounter crash in space after removing only the .black files.
Possibly by a T3 in space (not sure).

PS:
I am going to join the test server, though it probably wont be today ( a little busy with other stuff atm).
I also would encourage as many linux users to join the Test server as possible.

If we are part of the testing process, this sort of bugs are less likely to propagate to the patches. ;)

Yes, no crashes with loki and proteus on grid.

I've tested in-station preview of all four T3s in multiple configurations, enough to generate 72 sets of .black and .gr2 files (I don't see any .lock files with this patch). No crashes.

I'm on Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit, Wine 1.4, 8 GB RAM, 9300GE, 260.19.06 driver binaries. The wine 1.4 is a .deb from the "ubuntu-wine" PPA here: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-wine/+archive/ppa

All GFX settings on this box are set to lowest possible other than 1600x900 res (fullscreen in a virtual wine desktop).

EDIT: used the "MOVEME" channel and when warping to station, hit grid where there was a Loki, was able to use the "Look At" feature and the model looked normal. No crash, so the fix appears to be working in-space also for me.

I believe the next scheduled client update is on Monday and this fix will be included in that.

Hey

For all of you - who can't wait till Monday for a fix - I might have a more resource-friendly workaround.
I personally don't wanna maintain my own fork of WINE to play EVE - so I decided to go along the other workarounds, and simply cleanup the cache.

Though, running a tight-loop with rm is never a good idea, so I went a slightly other way

Using your systems I/O tools - you should be able go tricker an event on a filesystem... In this case, the cache-folder for eve.
You'll need inotify-tools for this.

I've been hovering around Dodixie for a while now... And it seems to be OK stable atm...

Edit the eveFolder variable to suit your needs.

rm -f "$eveFolder"/*

inotifywait --format %f -e create -m "$eveFolder" | while read file
do
rm -f "$eveFolder"/"$file"
done
