Supertux SCM gives "Illegal Instruction"
« on: April 04, 2013, 01:50:14 PM »
As a test I'm trying to run Supertux. I have already loaded gtk2.scm and libiconv.tcz (which AFAIK satisfies dependencies). When I try and run it from the terminal I get "Illegal instruction", and it refuses to run.
Am I doing something wrong?
Thanks.

On what type of CPU?

Probably the executable or one of the libs it depends on contains opcode for i686, resulting in Illegal Instruction with  a i586.

Ah, I never thought of that.
Maybe the SCM version is too new? I don't know.
I know in DSL it ran fine (supertux.dsl), an extension-loading process almost identical to TC's.

Hi cortman
There's an older version available you could try,  supertux.tcz

Please use gdb to find out which part is compiled for a higher cpu.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
