I’m getting the following error in a popup box on startup.
Failed to create a Vertex Buffer:/builddir/Positech/GSB/library/GVertexBuffer.cpp 146
The console outputs the following single line:
Starting up GSB for Linux, Build: 2011-12-23T15:20:26
Contents of $HOME/.positech/GSB/build.log:

No error.log was produced.
The game does open a window, but it stays completely blank. When I click the “Close” button in the popup box, the game exits normally (no further errors are produced, nor does it segfault). I tested on both 32 and 64 bit Ubuntu 11.10, fully updated. Uname -a of the 64 bit install: “3.0.0-15-generic #24-Ubuntu SMP Mon Dec 12 15:23:55 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux”. 32 bit install is also at 3.0.0-15. The system in question is a netbook running on an Intel Atom N450. Not sure if it matters, but the 64 bit install is actually Kubuntu (KDE) and the 32 bit install is actually Lubuntu (LXDE). I tried the Windows build from the Humble Bundle through wine and that does run (I played through the first 4 battles and built some custom ships).
