Issue Report: [fixed] TF2 Segfault on launch
So, after downloading for nearly a week due to it corrupting last time I downloaded it, I have finally downloaded TF2. I have disabled the "Steam Overlay Renderer" because it's not really working, especially not with TF2. I've tried numerous ways of running it in optirun/primusrun/whetever (Including running it in a shell, and the "steam-login" thing, and that LANG=C thing), but none work. Clicking the play button displays the "Game is launching" window, which then disappears, and the game instantly crashes as it starts.

Steam Output:
$primusrun bash
$steam

Based on the information provided (thanks, BTW) you have sent several mini-dumps already so there is no need for additional files at this time. However, could you tell me what desktop environment you are currently using?
SavageWolf Dec 4, 2012 @ 5:15am 
I am using Gnome-Shell on the default display manager thing (gdm, I think?). I have also tried the steam-login[github.com] thing, unsuccessfully.

Here is another report which seems to be about same problem:

Parsu, it does not seem to be the same problem by any means.
mikesart Dec 17, 2012 @ 5:50pm 
Is this still happening? Can you post the CrashID here if so? Thanks.
SavageWolf Dec 19, 2012 @ 4:53am 
All the files were lost due to an update ( http://steamcommunity.com/app/221410/discussions/2/846939071293574488/ ) and it will take ages to download again... I could do it, but it'll take a few days.
SavageWolf Dec 19, 2012 @ 2:05pm 
Ah, there we go, I recovered the install, and after Steam got it's guts together, TF2 seems to work. I tried a few rounds against the practice bots at maximum everything, and it seems to all work fine.

Good to hear. Thanks SavageWolf.
