[SOLVED] libx11 locales missing makes retroarch crash

EDIT
Topic has been changed to reflect the findings that solved the issue
/EDIT

Hi, i'm unable to use anything that needs 3d with retroarch; menu included.

Whet i get is:

[INFO] RetroArch 1.8.1 (Git bfdc8e6a62)

Unfortunately it exits "cleanly" (no segfault), but i found a way to have a backtrace.
If i set driver to sdl2 and then open a core that needs 3d, it switches to opengl and then segfaults.

This is with even older retroarch versions; so i builded it from git without stripping symbols and that is what gdb tells me:

What I've tried that DOES work:
* run via flatpak
* run via snapd

What I've tried that does NOT work:
* switch to vulkan
* run it under another user without any retroarch personal config file.
* running the retroarch binary from debian package
* Using all needed libraries from flatpack (retroarch works there)
* run as root
* run in a bare 3d capable systemd nspawn container (with base nvidia lib32-nvidia-utils lib32-opencl-nvidia nvidia-cg-toolkit nvidia nvidia-settings nvidia-utils opencl-nvidia retroarch)
* get rid of any Xorg configuration and running a bare twm session
* run via virtualgl (yes, i'm really running out of ideas)

System info:
gpu: nvidia 1050ti running 440.31-2 drivers
pacman -Q:  http://sprunge.us/ek5i8Y
/var/log/Xorg.0.log:  http://sprunge.us/0uVbh0
journalctl -b: http://sprunge.us/I8GG2E

What could it be? Anyone facing the same issue?

Re: [SOLVED] libx11 locales missing makes retroarch crash

Ok, i'm about to give up.
Since it does not work in an arch systemd container, but do work with snap and flatpak, i think the problems comes from arch.
Can anybody test retoarch in opengl with an updated system so that i will not open an useless bug report?
-EDIT-
My duck isn'helping today.

I installed another systemd container by using packages from long time ago via archlinux archive (but keeping the gpu drivers updated for compatibility with the host system... since they work in flatpak, i think they should even here, right?) and it fails the same exact way.

Re: [SOLVED] libx11 locales missing makes retroarch crash

I don't know how flatpak / snap handle videodrivers, but there have recently been several threads about problems with nvidia cards and 440.31 .

Could you try with 435.21 version ?

Multi-init booting with apg Openrc and systemd coexisting
Automounting : not needed, i prefer pmount
Aur helpers : makepkg + my own local repo === rarely need them

Re: [SOLVED] libx11 locales missing makes retroarch crash

Thanks, but already done; i updated them and the system after getting the crash.
Anyway the containers needs the userspace part ofnthe videodriver to match the kernel driver running on the real metal.

Tomorrow i'll get another session on that, but focusing on:

[ERROR] [X11]: Failed to open input method.

maybe the source of the error is that and other messages are misleading... but I really don't know anything about Xorg input methods.
Time to learn i guess...

Re: [SOLVED] libx11 locales missing makes retroarch crash

Maybe some kind of permission error, what is the output of loginctl session-status run as user in a X session ?

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Re … ot_operate looks like it may be relevant, although it suggests it should work under xorg.

Re: [SOLVED] libx11 locales missing makes retroarch crash

As i tried with root too, i can exclude permission errors.
I think the error message refers to:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/X_Input_Method

I played with them years ago (this installation is more than 10 years old), but i can't remember what i did; maybe i left my system 'dirty' somehow.

Re: [SOLVED] libx11 locales missing makes retroarch crash

SOLVED,
I was missing some files from /usr/share/X11/locale/
But he issue is deeper than this, i'll open another thread about it, because i think it is an arch issue.

Here we go:
