    Default Second Life viewer fails to load on Opensuse 12.2 64bit

    Greetings all, I'm trying to run Second Life on the release 12.2 64bit of openSuse but it crashes as soon as the viewer window opens.
    I tried with many viewers and all with the same result, the official viewer, phoenix, firestorm, singularity. The only one that currently works is a beta version of Kokua 64 bit but is in a too early development stage to be used. All the other viewers are 32 bit and they do require 32bit compatibility environment in order to run. I have installed several 32bit packages, including but it keeps crashing the same way. It always worked with any prior release of openSuse and now I cannot really understand what is missing or going wrong.
    Does anybody have the same problem?

    Opensuse 12.2 64.bit (Gnome)
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2600K CPU @ 3.40GHz
    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 (using Nvidia proprietary driver)
    16 Gb RAM

    gstramer packages installed: http://codepaste.net/ewqp9z
    32bit libraries installed: (part1) http://codepaste.net/nn8fxo
    (part2) http://codepaste.net/pf17ya

    Thanks in advance for any help or suggestion.

    If you launch them from a terminal window, do you get any error messages?

    Hello Jim, thanks for your reply. This is what I get running Firestorm from the terminal:

    I have the same problem with OpenSuse 12.2, 32bit ! I tried several viewers, Firestorm, Phoenix and the origin one from LindenLabs and everywhere the same: the window pops up for a moment and then closes again. Im already using the nvidia driver (340.xx) and glxgears runs nicely with abotu 60fps.

    The same with me on openSUSE 12.2 with KDE and proprietary NVIDIA Driver. It crashes with an segmentation fault on terminal.

    Sounds like a bug to report to Linden Labs so they can address it.

    The problem seems to be related to fontconfig, I was able to make it work copying the following libraries from Kouka Viewer 3.3.4 in the directory "lib" of Firestorm (or any other viewer that was not working":
    libfontconfig.so
    libfontconfig.so.1
    libfontconfig.so.1.4.4
    openSUSE 13.1 - KDE 4.12 (KDE:Release:412)

    I have downloaded the "Kouka" viewer which seems to be identical to the Imprudence viewer, but i didnt found the files you mentioned. Just for fun i made a copy (yes, beat me now..i know that one shouldnt do that) of the existing "libfontconfig.so.1.4.4" from the Firestorm*/lib/ directory and renamed it into "libfontconfig.so.1" and another "libfontconfig.so". And its working ! Slow, but working. I also tried for fun the other viewers, LindenLabs_3.3.4, Phoenix_1.6.1 and even Imprudence_1.3.2b: without the 3 files its not, with the 3 files IT IS working.

    I can confirm this, if it's due to the same issue as me. Both the official SL viewer and custom ones are crashing. Everyone says it's because the latest libfontcfg is broken and needs to be downgraded, by replacing the lib in the Secondlife/lib/ folder IIRC. I tried that and it didn't help me much, though I might have been doing it wrong myself. If anyone knows I'm very curious for a fix as well.
