Re: simcity 3000

I have not done this for a long time. But I remeber loki games had a problem as they where linked to ld-linux.so. Is simcity a loki game? Don't really know.  You may give it a try:

You have to find out which .so the game is looking for, and create a link from the current .so file name to the needed one.

Example:
ld-linux.so.2 is available, but game is looking for ld-linux.so

ln -s ld-linux.so.2 ld-linux.so

I have sold my loki games, can't check it.

Re: simcity 3000

yeah, the trouble with these games is you have an up-to-date linux system wink This causes programs linked against very old libraries to malfunction.. programs like loki games, word perfect 8 for linux, etc.

The linking solution above might or might not work.

Re: simcity 3000

So far neither loki software, the lg FAQ, IRC, Forums have been able to help me with this. i do not think it is a hard questin, i am new to linux i have been using it for a year. I am just woundering what can i do to get simcity 3000 working. I know one of you linux zealots knows how to get it to work, theres a way to get anything to work in linux, you just need to know how! so if you have sim city and have it running on arch, or any up to date linux system PLEASE could you tell me how you got it to work! Thanx! big_smile

Re: simcity 3000

ok, I'll try:
post the detailed error message here, and run

tail -n 20 /var/log/everything

after you get this error.

post all this here

FYI loki went out of business, so their crap hasn't been updated since 2002.... its still running against really old code:
try this patch to see if it helps

Re: simcity 3000

I have at least 6 Loki Title in my collection and have no problem installing/running any of them on Arch now, currently up to date and in sync with all packages as of today.  But, that's not to say a little work is required...

With respect to SimCity 3000, you have to do the following:

1. Mount CD, and install into a directory you have permissions (or just do it as root).  I chose the default as "/usr/local/games/SC3U".

2. Get the file "sc3u-2.0a-x86.run" (patch) from:
(i) ftp://sunsite.auc.dk/pub/os/linux/loki/patches/sc3u/
(ii) http://www.3ddownloads.com/linuxgames/l … 0a-x86.run
(iii) or another site hosting this file.

3. Type the following, and do not use "./<patch>" or "sh <patch>".

/bin/bash sc3u-2.0a-x86.run

When the patch prompts you for an installation directory, give it the full path to where you installed the game in step 1.

* If you have any complaints (or failures) from "tail" this or that, type the following at the prompt.  I already added it to my "/etc/profile" for all users to enjoy.

export _POSIX2_VERSION=199209

4. Find where "sc3u" symlink was installed.  Go to that directory, in my case it was "/usr/local/bin/sc3u", and delete that file.  Then, recreate that same file by typing the following at prompt:

cat > /usr/local/bin/sc3u << EOF
#!/bin/sh
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.2 /usr/local/games/SC3U/sc3u
EOF

* All this is assuming you installed Sim City 3000 to "/usr/local/games/SC3U" and have "/usr/local/bin" in your PATH env.  You can always make the appropriate adjustments above to fit your installation/PATH directories.

5. Give that file executable permissions:

chmod ug+x /usr/local/bin/sc3u

and...

Fire that puppy up!  For real enjoyment while playing this game, spend 4 days creating the city of your dreams, immediately followed by 10 minutes of an earthquake, Fire, Riot, Swarm of Locusts, and a UFO or two.  Watch those little ants go to work, while you enjoy a brew and laugh as they crumble beneath your mighty fingers....muahahaahhaaha! muahahahaha!.............................................

Re: simcity 3000

You need to set the _POSIX2_VERSION env to get rid of that "tail" problem.  I had a bad copy of that patch too, downloaded it from another site, and it worked.  Just try it from another site and follow everything I outlined above.  No problemo...you'll get that puppy going.
