Segfault at start up on Linux on Steam

  • Just bought this and would love any help debugging it. I’m wondering if this is an issue related to running 32-bit linux on a 64-bit CPU, but really I’ve no idea. FWIW, I’ve tried the BETA and get the same debugging output.

    Either launch the game from Steam, or put the file steam_appid.txt containing the correct appID in your game folder.

  • Turns out it was the presence of a file called ‘PhysX.conf’ in /etc/ that was confusing the game. Game now starts! :)
