shmerl: That sounds like you have some kind of memory issue, but the error is probably engine specific. How much RAM do you have?
System 16GB, which is alright. Video 3GB, which is low. I lowered the resolution for now while waiting for my new GPU to arrive. No missing textures at least.

username4: Anyone also having problems with galaxy on linux after the update today?

Automatically updating to 1.2.64 broke all game launches on Lutris, Wine version 4.4, for me, everything was working yesterday.

Game crashes, when attempting to start from Galaxy, showing the crash reporter. Sometimes crashing Galaxy too.
The "Play"-button then stays greyed out I can't attempt again.

Game executables can be launched successfully, if manually started from Lutris.
I have the same problem. I can start games using exe from installed folder, but as soon as i hit play button in GOG client, i see crash report. I'd like to see how much time i spent with the game. Without GOG client, we won't be able. Starting the game in the old way leaves us without this function, time wont be listed.

shmerl: Never used the "official" Galaxy client. With Windows games (for Wine), you can use lgogdownloader with Galaxy API for updating.
Coud you explain in more details? LGOGDOWNLOADER or what for linux? I never heard of it.

Lgogdownloader is a community made helpful program but it does not keep track of time played nor does it unlock achievements.

What really is needed is a Galaxy where at least the eleven most glaring issues have been fixed and then a Linux version of it made.

Yes, i searched earlier and found out what it is. Unftunaltely, just like above mentioned, no time is being measured during gameplay and so on.

You need Galaxy proper for that. I read that at least last week Galaxy did not work in Wine. Go ask for a Linux version in the thread about today's release of the open Galaxy v2.0 beta.

I use it for downloading, I don't need personally to track time in the client or anything of the sort. You can contact GOG and ask when they'll release their client for Linux. But I don't expect them to any time soon. They didn't do it for years and show no sign of new interest to start doing it now.

Slapping together a program that keeps track of time played should be very easy – either fork into a new process and track its runtime or monitor the process list (e.g. via /proc or psutil in python) and use that to keep track of the times.
Updated my system only to be greeted by a black screen... No panic :-)

Things like this is why choosing a distro using more mature versions may be a good choice. Off to find out what went wrong, then pick a suitable fix. Just formatting and installing something I know works would probably be fastest but I would learn the least.

Hmm… Self-installed nVidia drivers?
Usually "black screen" means X server failed to launch on the default terminal. Does switching to other terminals net something? Like, login prompt. If it does, then what does "/var/log/Xorg.0.log" tell?

P.S. My English is awful today for some reason :)

Self installed AMD drivers. I suspected the problem being there too as the system gives no error codes on the motherboard. Will see if I have the energy to look into it later today. Need to start by downloading something for a Live system. I really need more USB sticks so no need to delete the live distro every time I need an empty stick for things like UEFI updates.
Found my problems were at least two-fold with a suspect third, all software related. Two known bugs :-( and one possible screwup by me. At least my screen is not black any more.

Those different logs are insanely long. I suspect deleting them once in a while may be a good idea so you do not fill up your ssd with them.
An interesting question came up. Apparently for a while already GOG started supporting beta versions (through beta release "channel"). I had no idea until now. See:
https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?p=4904508#p4904508
https://forum.egosoft.com/viewtopic.php?f=192&t=405397

But it's supposed to be done through Galaxy. So how can Linux users access Linux betas? Galaxy is defunct for Linux releases even on the server side. And I don't see anything beta related on the game download page. Surely, Linux users should be able to access the available release, right?

We can't. Plain and simple.

Why can't they provide betas as regular downloads?
