A couple of days ago, I updated from Leap 42.3 to Leap 15.0 (using KDE in both 42.3 and 15). The documentation was great and the update went smoothly.
Today I tried to play GNUBackgammon on 15 and it does not show any screen output. I ran it from the KDE menu. and also from the command line. Granted that this is not the biggest deal in the world, but I would like to waste some time playing again.
The “top” command shows that gunbg is running with 100% CPU usage. Running $gnubg 2>&1 gives no output. I uninstalled it and re-installed it, but that didn’t change the behavior.
Does anyone have suggestions on getting this game running?
(This message was also posted in the install/upgrade section. I got no replies after a few days. Sorry, but I could find no way to just move it here after I got no replies there.)
I too had no luck with gnubg-1.04.001-lp150.1.18.x86_64. My strace -f gnubgtold me that gnubg ran into a futex which either should return immediately or wait, but instead was using 100% of one of my CPU cores. Weird.
