Hi Guys, since yesterday I have issues with my openmw installation. Before, it ran just fine.
I run:
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS
Release: 16.04
Codename: xenial
I've installed the GotY-Version via wine 1.6.2 and the openmw via launchpad.
I've tried to re-install, but the fatal error persists.
Yesterday I had another fatal error, when loading into a new cell (i.e. from one door to another, Almalexia's Throne Room into the Temple-rooms in Mournhold), but this is not the issue any longer.
Furthermore I had to tell the Morrowind-config-File manually wher to find the data files - the installation wizard could not handle the directory and the files within properly.

I post the latest log-file as an attachment.

The game crashed in your graphics driver when copying the screen to a texture. That's probably a bug in the driver, a borked GPU or not enough memory. How much RAM & VRAM do you have?

@scrawl .: thanks. My $ dmesg | grep drm says:

Ok, so you have 2gb vram and 8gb ram. That should be enough for an installation without mods.

Since you mentioned that 'since yesterday I have issues with my openmw installation. Before, it ran just fine.'. Do you recall anything you did just before the issues started? Maybe you installed an update to your graphics driver?

#5 Updated by Michael Feuerherd 3 months ago

Indeed. There were some changes. First, I tested second-hand RAM in my system. The RAM was corrupted, so Ubuntu didn't start, Memtest crashed. I re-inserted my Lenovo RAM and the system seemed fine, everything was recognized properly, i.e. the full amount of 8GB RAM.
Second, according to my apt-history, I found:

This should be the log-entry you are looking for, since it lists changes in the driver. And right after that, also according to my log file, I tried to re-install openmw.
What can I do now? Thanks in advance.

#6 Updated by Andrei Kortunov 3 months ago

At least you can try to downgrade your driver package (libgl1-mesa-dri, I suppose) and check if the downgrade fixes this issue.
Can any Ubuntu user with an Intel GPU confirm this bug?

#7 Updated by Michael Feuerherd 3 months ago

Thanks Andrei Kortunov.
Unfortunately, it seems as if the older version is no longer available from apt-get

$ apt-get install libegl1-mesa=17.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.04.2
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
E: Version »17.0.7-0ubuntu0.16.04.2« für »libegl1-mesa« konnte nicht gefunden werden.
i.e. "Couldn't be found"
Did I do anything wrong?
$ apt-cache showpkg libegl1-mesa
doesn't list anything in the repository before 17.2.4
Building from source is not really an option for me because I am just a beginner.

#8 Updated by Michael Feuerherd 3 months ago

Hi folks,
today there was an update from the Ubuntu repos, updating the mesa-drivers, too, and my bug has been magically dissolved. Thanks to the unknown bug-fixer. This thread can be closed.
