[Linux] Computer shuts down

Postby retr0virus » Thu Jan 02, 2014 5:09 pm

I bought the game with the humble bundle and have the problem that it shuts down my computer while playing the intro movie.
I can see the two people go to the red light and then the appearing cracks in the street - and then the computer simply powers off. No shutdown message or anything like that - it simply is off.

I run a 64bit archlinux on my AMD FX 8350, 16GB RAM with an ASUS Radeon HD 7870 and the proprietary catalyst driver.
Code: Select all
$ uname -srvmo
Linux 3.12.6-1-ARCH #1 SMP PREEMPT Fri Dec 20 19:39:00 CET 2013 x86_64 GNU/Linux

I use xinit to start the X server with an openbox-session as a simple window manager.
Package versions:
catalyst-hook 13.12-1
openbox 3.5.2-6
xorg-server 1.14.5-1
xorg-xinit 1.3.3-3

Any suggestions what I can try?
And no, no error messages - it goes off and does not even reboot. No chance for seeing/reading an error message. I have to manually start the computer again and then it complains about the dirty shutdown.

In my home directory is now a ".Anomaly 2/DefaultUser" directory structure with the files progress,results and stats.
They seem to be nearly empty (some header/ending bytes) but I could post them if that would help.

Other games like e.g. X3 or Dota2 are running without problems.

If you tell me how I can deliver more information to you, I will do it. ;-)

I tried again with output to a file.
Code: Select all
./Anomaly2 >anoOut.txt 2>anoErr.txt

I recognized that this time the cracks in the street did not even appear - so the computer shut down some seconds earlier.
File contents:
Yes, it stops with the characters "Reso".

I tried again - this time skipping the intro with ESC. In the menu the computer did not shut down.
I changed the language in the options to german and opened the "Wie man spielt" (how to play?) section.
There the intro video is shown in a small window... and the computer shut down again as the two guys leaved the truck... -.- So it crashes even with the small video.
Again file contents (this time splitted in two parts - content was too large): and

it tries to install whole package on Internal Storage. Please try to free some space from Internal Storage and let me know if it helped. Our game takes about 1,5GB, so sorry for inconveniences.
