EVE Online, game not working after updating system

EDIT: Found an easy fix i should have tried before posting this thread. If this happens to you... simply delete the cached resources which end up in ~/.eve/

Delete that folder, rerun the launcher, and the game started in my case.


On slackware-current here, EVE online has worked flawlessly since i first started playing a few months ago... but today i updated my kernel and nvidia driver, and now the game doesn't start?

Updated kernel from 4.9.39 > 4.9.40
Updated nvidia from 375.xx > 384.59

I am using the semi-official linux launcher from here

Right now, the launcher starts as normal, which is a native Qt5 application, although when you click "play" i believe the actual game only runs under wine.

I did notice wine was also updated in my updates today.

Is anyone else getting this problem who plays the game on slackware or has updated nvidia drivers recently? How can i get the game to work again? When i click play in the launcher, i have these processes (see attached image) which carry on running but the game doesn't actually start up.
