Problem connecting to servers

by theblob » Thu May 08, 2014 21:51

Hello everyone, I've run into a few problems when connecting to servers. When I check the public serverlist check box, Minetest crashes for some reason. I've checked debug.txt, but nothing new shows up related to the error. Also, when I type in the IP and port number of a server, Minetest gets stuck on the "connecting to server..." screen. I'm running Minetest(0.4.9+repack-4ubuntu) on Ubuntu 14.04. Does anyone have any idea what could be wrong? Thanks in advance!

*Update*
Minetest is only getting stuck on the "connecting to server..." screen for some servers, not all.

Regarding Minetest being stuck at "connecting to server", that means that the server is currently offline, nothing more.

I've had the same issue with all of my 64 bit and with 32 bit versions of Ubuntu 14.04, with the minetest 0.4.9 from the ubuntu software center. With my 3 64 bit computers, I deleted minetest with the software center and then downloaded and installed the appropriate .deb file for the developmental/unstable minetest from https://code.launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+archive/daily-builds/+packages. I still have the buggy version from the software center installed on my 32 bit laptop for now if there is any debugging help you all want, but the debug file doesn't display anything and I can't find the .conf file to adjust the debugging level to 4.

I tried it again and the ubuntu OS sent an error report somewhere. This is when I go to the client tab and select the box for Public Server List. Minetest waits a moment and then crashes. I can't copy and select the details for some reason, but I'll type out the title...

minetest crashed with SIGABRT in __gnu_cxx::verbose__terminate_handler()

Ok, I found out that the minetest.conf doesn't get created until a world is played, so now I have a minetest.conf file to configure. Here is the debugging level four for my system when this crash happens...

I'll repeat my system details so you all don't have to search my prior posts in this thread for them ;) . This machine is an hp laptop with 32 bit ubuntu 14.04 (although I had the crash with 64 bit ubuntu 14.04 also). The version of minetest is 0.4.9 from the ubuntu software center. The bug is definitely reproducible, since it happens every time I select the client tab of minetest and then select the public server list box. I hope this helps.

Seems like the OpenAL isn't installed or libogg wrongly included.

What does "Vorbis extension NOT present" mean?

That means that OpenAL has no direct vorbis decoding support. (Minetest however links to libvorbis so it will work without that)

Would minetest work faster with this?

No, vorbis decoding takes only a minimal amount of CPU.
