Minetest on Linux Mint 19.1 - Error while starting game

by meise21 » Fri Jun 07, 2019 05:40

Hi,
I installed minetest on my new Linux Mint 19.1 XFCE machine. I used the package "minetest" from
https://launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+ar ... ntu/stable

When starting the game the main menu comes up fine and I was also able to install the mineclone2 game from the content browser.
However then I try to start a local game or join a network game the game hangs indefinitely while "Creating server".

The package version is given as "5.0.1-ppa0~ubuntu19.04.1" is this supposed to work with 19.1 Mint or might this be the cause of the problem?
Any idea what might be going wrong?
Are there any logfiles you could point me to?

Thanks for your feedback,
Markus

It should definitely work on LM 19.1.
You need at least ver. 0.49.0 of MineClone2 in order to work with MT 5.0.x.

For troubleshooting check the debug.txt file in ~/.minetest/
If that doesn't provide an answer, and you are on the correct MC2 version, disable all mods in the world configuration and see if that enables the world to run.

It's a good sign if Minetest does not respond while creating the server, as this means that it floods the cache with fresh media.
Either that or the mods locked up themselves in an infinite loop. Find out more by running Minetest from the terminal, or open ~/.minetest/debug.txt to check out what's happening.

Log didn't show anything problematic. I reinstalled everything again from scratch now it's working
Thanks for your help!

@meise21: That's great to hear. Please adjust the main post title so that it has the [Solved] prefix/tag.
