Hi,
I've been playing this game for the last couple of months and I'm really into it. Unfortunately I have to play it on windows as you might have guessed. However there is an official linux version of the game. I decided to try the linux version under FreeBSD's linux emulation but it didn't work. I believe I have all necessary linux packages installed. Here's what I got when tried to run it:
Code:
[mgp@home ~/HoN]$ ./hon-x86

It will be really great if someone can take a look. This game is fantastic and it would be very cool if we could play it on our favourite OS.
I'm running FreeBSD-8-STABLE amd64 and I installed the x86 version of the game.
So does anyone know what the above output means?

P.S. this is the game's website http://www.heroesofnewerth.com/
I'm willing to provide my beta account if someone could help port this.

Windows version runs just fine via WINE in DirectX mode.

Oh does it? That's very nice.
However wine is still only for i386 so I can't use it...
Besides I was thinking that making the linux version run would be somehow cooler. Maybe we could even create a port if we were able to run the linux version.

yeah, this is nice, I gotta try it out
but still ... I think it would be better to figure out how to run the linux version...
now back to the problem
Code:
*** glibc detected *** ./hon-x86: munmap_chunk(): invalid pointer: 0x28345a0b ***
does this come from the linux glibc or the FreeBSD glibc?
could it be a glibc version compatibility problem?
could it be bounds problem?
could I use something like valgrind to debug linux apps on FreeBSD?

FreeBSD libc is not used here. What ever libc version was linked with the client is being ran. The problem isn't actually in munmap_chunk() but somewhere above in time line at allocation stage. You could try to debug it ofc, but its not a simple task when you do not have source code available.

yeah but when you look at the backtrace:
Code:
/lib/libc.so.6
which should be FreeBSD libc however I don't have that... I have
Code:
/lib/libc.so.7
I don't understand why the backtrace is like that...?

This is most likely the Linux 'chrooted' one:
[/usr/compat/linux]/lib/libc.so.6

There. After S2 Games officially released the game I tried their binary bundle again and it just worked. I just needed to install graphics/linux-f10-libGLU and that's it.
I'm now able to play Heroes of Newerth from my FreeBSD-8-STABLE amd64. Sweet. :)
Go ahead and try it out.

I tried both linux one and wine, wine one works more smooth. Even linux users say its more smooth via wine.

Do you guys think creating a port makes sense?
It's a major game after all.
