GemRB error

I had BG1 working via gemRB a few weeks ago. I accidentally deleted my appdata folder and had to go through and reinstall everything. Now I can't get gemRB to run anything :( I'm hoping someone can tell me what I'm doing wrong here. I had it working once so I know it's possible...


1) ran gemRB to create the /pandora/appdata/gemrb folder


2) added bg1 folder there (/pandora/appdata/gemrb/bg1)


3) copied the contents of my BG install directory entirely in there (a GOG install if that matters)


4) profit?


When I run I am getting the following error message in my pndrun_gemrb.out file:


sudo /usr/pandora/scripts/pnd_run.sh -m -p /media/BD/pandora/menu//gemrb063.pnd -e start.sh -b gemrb -c 500


not mounted on loop yet, doing so


LoopMountedon:


/dev/loop7


Filetype is Squashfs


Mounting PND (mount -t squashfs) :


/dev/loop7 on /mnt/pnd/gemrb type squashfs (ro)


Filesystem is vfat


Mounting the Union FS using /media/BD/pandora/appdata/gemrb as Write directory:


mount -t aufs -o exec,noplink,dirs=/media/BD/pandora/appdata/gemrb=rw+nolwh:/mnt/pnd/gemrb=rr none /mnt/utmp/gemrb


none on /mnt/utmp/gemrb type aufs (rw,si=6a606577,noplink)


none on /mnt/utmp/gemrb type aufs (rw,si=6a606577,noplink)


[------------------------------]{ App start }[---------------------------------]


./gemrb: error while loading shared libraries:


/mnt/utmp/gemrb/lib/libgemrb_core.so.0: file too short


[-------------------------------]{ App end }[----------------------------------]


cleanup done


The errors are after I select what game to to run and I presume are related to those shared libraries?


I looked in the mounted PND and the files in question are there, though the required length is a mystery...


Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

Even confirmation that the steps I took are accurate is valid info. It would help me know that Im looking at a real issue and not just a user error.


As secondary data I also installed BG2 (and moved all the bif files into the data folder) and get the same error. PST, same error. Calling a game not installed - same error.


Either this error is caused by a missing or badly installed game and GemRB cant find any of these games or theres another fundamental flaw in my gemRB installation.


Ive also re-downloaded gemRB from the repo incase I had a bad copy to no avail.

Turns out it *does* seem to be a corrupted PND. I downloaded the version at apps.openpandora.org and it worked just fine. Pulled the version from repo.openpandora.org and it dies.


The only issue I have now is that the version at apps.OP.org is version 0.6.3 and the version that works is 0.6.2.


Can someone with a *working* version of the 0.6.3 gemRB download the repo.openpandora.org version and do a checksum check or similar comparison? We may need someone to upload a working replacement. I believe repo is what PNDStore is pulling from which means we may be propagating the bad version...

Make a comment or report on the repo about your problems or nobody will know about this ;)

the one on repo.openpandora.org was packaged and uploaded by blue protoman so maybe he did something wrong ( i have since transferred ownership to jurnD ) and I have sent them Maintainer a message to fix the app, in the meantime I have disabled the download.
