Full Version: Vdrift, start problem
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
I downloaded the rpm for Vdrift, and installed it. When I try to start the game, it won't start.
so I tried to open it with the terminal. Then I got this error message:

"vdrift: symbol lookup error: vdrift: undefined symbol: _ZN31btDefaultCollisionConfigurationC1EP12btStackAllocP15btPoolAllocatorS3_"

What can I do to make the game work?[/url]
Where did you download the RPM from? I recommend you download the linux source version linked from the main vdrift.net website and install that per the directions in wiki.vdrift.net.

I have now downloaded the source version from vdrift.net, but I don't know how to start it.
When I downloaded a game called "frets on fire", I just went to the "src" map. Then in the terminal, I wrote "python FretsOnFire.py", and then it worked.

Can I start Vdrift almost as easy?
Or how am I supposed to start the game?

They're pretty long but if you have any questions just post here.
Hi! I have the same problem on mandriva. I installed it from the package manager as normal. I wouldn't like to compile it. Why is that done? How can i fix it?
I don't make any RPM versions of VDrift. That error message, which indicates the version of bullet installed is different than the one vdrift was linked against, is due to an error by whomever made the RPM. You need to contact the people that made the RPM -- if you are on Mandriva and you got the package from their package manager, you need to file a bug report with Mandriva. You can point them back to this forum thread if they have any questions.

If you want to compile your own version, it's a little complicated, but we have detailed instructions in our wiki. Also, I'm hoping we'll eventually have a generic linux binary installer that should work with many distributions available on vdrift.net, so you could wait for that if you want.
Thanks! I 'll try to file a bug on mandriva, although i don't know how Tongue I 'll try and i 'll tell you. :?
