Trouble running Phobia III
i am trying to run Phobia 3 on Suse 9.1 Pro. When i try to run it, it complains about libsdl or something (can give specific message later this evening). This lib is already installed, according to Yast.

any help anyone can provide on running this game would be great! looks like an awesome title :)

here's the error:

myk@linux:~/Applications/phobia3> ./phobia3 --window
./phobia3: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

i have libvorbis and libvorbis-devel installed, according to yast. I can play and encode ogg files, so ii assume it is installed.

and here's the link to the game in question:

The libvorbis package should provide, it does when built from source. Perhaps you're missing a symlink, for example:


ls -al /usr/lib/libvorbisfile*
-rw-r--r--    1 root    root        19878 Oct 18  2003 /usr/lib/libvorbisfile.a
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root    root          777 Oct 18  2003 /usr/lib/
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root          22 Nov 10  2003 /usr/lib/ ->
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root          22 Nov 10  2003 /usr/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root    root        27019 Oct 18  2003 /usr/lib/

as you can see, on this system, is a symlink to

i'll check it and post back when i get home.

Thanks for the tip :)

got the symbolic link fixed. But the game causes a segmentation fault. Soon as i begin to play it crashes with no specific error message. Any ideas on that?

EDIT: Never mind I am an idiot sorry.

got it fixed.. I needed to install one of the source packages included for smpeg.

works great now.

Apologies for resurrecting the dead but I've also been having problems with Phobia III and managed to resolve the libvorbis issue with a symbolic link but I have been unsucessful in either finding out what it is in the SMPEG library that it is that resolves the segmentation fault or in compiling the library (although I already have the relevant packages installed).

Any help is appreciated.
