Can't figure out update problem


Hello all,

Okay so I installed Diablo 2 on my Ubuntu install and everything works fine, however every time I update ubuntu with the weekly updates it pushes down, it screws up something and D2 won't load giving a BPP resolution 32-16 can't load error. Or can't open client window.

Here is where it gets wierd though. I backup my xorg.conf everytime before I do any updates. So i did it last time and after the updates D2 won't load but if i switch back to my other xorg.conf it loads just fine?!?!? but there is absolutely NO Changes in the xorg.conf's. I opened up both and compared them both line for line and there is no difference so what in the updates is screwing it up so D2 won't load???? is there some kind of a hash push on the xorg.conf or winecfg or something that is effecting this??

I do not know what Diablo 2 is, but if you have narrowed down your problem to an xorg.conf setting, instead of "comparing them line by line" try a
Code:
diff   xorg.conf  xorg.conf.itworks
Or similar.
It'll save your eyesight, and maybe highlight the problem.

Hey,

Thanks for the response. I ran diff xorg.conf.goodbackup xorg.conf.updatepos and it shows no differences, so now I have no idea as to why it screws it up everytime I update ? but by deleting my xorg.conf after an update and replacing it with xorg.conf.goodbackup fixes the problem ????

Are the permissions on the two the same, same owner/group, SELinux context?

Compare ls -lZ for the two files

I will do this when I get home and let you know but why would the permissions change with an update?
