I am curious as to why you went for “yum” when there are 1 Clicks
available for openSUSE
sorry for that was a mistake it was a 1click install not a yum, and also tried to use YaST2 install, i am not sure at the moment but i believe the issue was due to nvidia driver issues i was using the wrong version and a update corrupted them, i will get back after i finish updating and installing software again.
back and tested with the new install, same issue is going on i think it could be something wrong with the launcher its self but i have looked and only found this issue replicated on another Linux distro :\ i ll keep looking and maybe with a patch it will fix the issue.
I have exactly the same issue with minetest-0.4.9, but I haven’t found a solution for it either. Instead, what I did was run the windows version though Wine, which works great.
With the release of version 0.4.10 for windows, I am still waiting for them to update the openSUSE repository to version 0.4.10. In the meantime, version 0.4.10 is causing a bit of trouble through wine, so I usually play the 0.4.9 version…
after some time and effort i had figured out the issue, i had to compile minetest myself it was not to hard as i found a large number of tutorials on doing just this, it was well worth the time and effort as i was able to get it setup and running flawless please take the time to do this as well, you wont be disappointed and you will be playing in no time
