my problem still exists also with the new installer. I can install it but the game wont start. If i run the game from the console (savage.bin) then following message appears: *****@localhost xr1 test neu]$ ./savage.sh
./savage.bin: ./libs/libz.so.1: version `ZLIB_18.104.22.168' not found (required by /usr/lib/libxml2.so.2)
My solution for this problem is (the order is relevant!):
1. I delete the file 'libz.so.1' from the game 'libs' folder
2.run 'savage.bin from the console (The updater appears, the 'savage0.szg' file gets created and so on...)
3.(the game already doesnt start at this point if i run it from the console! The same error message as above!)
4. delete the file 'libz.so.1' from the game 'libs' folder again
5. copy the file 'libz.so.1' and 'libz.so.1.2.6' from my distribution 'lib' folder to the game 'libs' folder
Then i have to create manually a new desktop shortcut to the 'savage.bin' file to run the game. (The old shortcut doesnt work. If i run 'savage.sh' from the console the game starts. I dont know why!)
Some Informations about my system:
Linux distribution: Mageia2 (really new and up to date)
This problem doesnt appear on my old distribution 'Mandriva 2009.1'
So i guess, my distribution needs a new version of this file, other than the version that is delivered with the game.
I hope you can understand what i have written, because my english is not so good. If you need any additional information about my system and packet-versions dont hesitate to contact me.
But in general i would say: XR1 is great, runs fine and all devs have done a really good job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
