Texture conversion fails under Linux openSUSE Leap 15.2, Glibc-devel requirement cannot be satisfied

Recommended Posts

I've purchased the scenery for the Balearic Islands. The installation seems to work fine until the texture conversion step. The log file reveals the following:


2021-03-27T17:38:07.764Z [INFO] [Saturn] - [ERROR] Failed to convert Custom Scenery\Orbx_C_EU_Spain_Balearic_TE_Orthos\textures\183f0x208c0x18.JPG

2021-03-27T17:38:07.764Z [INFO] [Saturn] - TeximpNet.TeximpException: Error loading unmanaged library from path: /tmp/.mount_orbx-cAZXEjg/saturn-linux/libnvtt.so
2021-03-27T17:38:07.764Z [INFO] [Saturn] - /lib64/libm.so.6: version `GLIBC_2.27' not found (required by /tmp/.mount_orbx-cAZXEjg/saturn-linux/libnvtt.so)


(many similar lines stripped)


This error message makes sense, since I am on openSUSE Linux Leap 15.2, which has Glibc 2.26. I don't have Glibc 2.27 for my platform, and Glibc is not an easy package to update. To be sure, I do have the package glibc-devel installed:



> rpm -q glibc-devel



For your information, I am using:



2021-03-27T16:01:39.991Z [INFO] [Main] - Orbx Central - 4.1.34
2021-03-27T16:01:39.991Z [INFO] [Main] - Linux 5.3.18-lp152.66-default



Is there any other way that I could carry out the texture conversion step in order to complete the installation? I develop software on Linux, so I know my way around, and have a few tools that could potentially make this easier (like docker or VMware). Thank you in advance!

I am happy to report that I finally got Central running. I resorted to running a virtual machine with Ubuntu 20.04. I did experience repeated crashes of the worker process (the worker process being killed with SIGKILL) initially. Eventually those disappeared, I suspect because I increased the memory available to the virtual machine from 4GB to 16GB. Are there any minimum memory requirements to run Central?


Can I make a suggestion to the dev team? Would it perhaps be possible to package Orbx Central against an older reference distribution? I don't know whether it's possible to influence what AppImage does, and how easy that is, but it would make it possible to deploy Orbx Central even wider. But that's just my 2 cents.


But in the end I have your beautiful scenery up and running in X-Plane! Thank you for a fantastic product! All the best! Kind regards, Edward.
