I’m also having the same problem.
I believe I’m ok screen wise, I’m running at 1366x768, but I’ve also tried at the other 2 x768 resolutions.
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 345mm x 194mm
1366x768 59.6*+ 50.0
1360x768 59.8 60.0
800x600 60.3 56.2
I’m using the latest version (downloaded today), and I’m using the shell version of the installer rather that the tgz.
stuart@beavis:/usr/local/games/GSB$ cat version.txt
The MD5sum for the binary is
stuart@beavis:/usr/local/games/GSB$ md5sum GSB.bin.x86
according to lspci, my graphics card is one of these:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 02)
and I’m trying to play the game on a Lenovo Edge laptop, running Ubuntu 11.10
I also have a 180k strace of what’s going on if that would be any use to you.
Let me know if there’s any more info that might help, I’ve played this game on my Mac and I’m eager to be able to play it on Linux as well!
EDIT: Here’s a bit more info on my video card:
