Thread: Tumbleweed, Steam, CS:GO and libtcmalloc_minimal

    Default Tumbleweed, Steam, CS:GO and libtcmalloc_minimal

    Hi all,

    on my desktop I use tumbleweed because Leap 15.3 was on older C-Libraries but for development in Java I needed a newer version.

    Now I also have this all time problem with Steam CS:GO not starting with a fault in It is obviously a faulty libtcmalloc_minimal that ships with CS:GO and in forums you are advised to install libtcmalloc_minimal from the distro repos and simply exchange the one of CS:GO.
    The error you get (at least that I get): "kernel: traps: Video Decode Th[7367] trap stack segment ip:7f8a0d412eb7 sp:7f89def90420 error:0 in[7f8a0d400000+25000]"

    To exchange the library is quite simple:
    cd ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/Counter-Strike\ Global\ Offensive/bin/linux64/
    ln -s /usr/lib64/
    However this does not work anymore. With the distro's version you will then receive the error "kernel: traps: Video Decode Th[5317] general protection fault ip:7f1ceb445c0c sp:7f1cbcf4b400 error:0 in[7f1ceb443000+12000]"

    But what DOES work is to use the With that library, everything works again and the game starts, but the game's framerate drops significantly as the library is maybe much slower due to debugging purposes, I would guess. That lead me to the conclusion that there might be some kind of timing problem with - not only the one version that ships with CS:GO but also with the distro version.

    Tumbleweed is leading edge software and such problems are not unlikely to happen, but my idea would be that Steam and CS:GO will break in Leap 15.4 if this is not further investigated.

    Now my question is:
    - can anyone relate to this?
    - if my conclusion is true, how could we dig deeper into this and mybe get a request for an adoption somewhere - either the library or the kernel or whatever is causing this?

    Bug report may help.
    Leap 15.4 use the same glibc as Leap 15.3 do.

    You may use LD_PRELOAD or LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
