Created attachment 95393 [details]

All I do is start NS2, the loading screen comes up but eventually it goes blank (DPMS save).  Then it may come back and go away several times before usually crashing back to desktop. 

Crashes with LXDE/Unity
mesa: Stock Ubuntu 14.04 and git (oibaf ppa).
kernels: Stock Ubuntu 14.04 (3.13) and 3.14-rc5 and .

Kern log includes with stock Ubuntu 14.04 at booting at Mar  8 22:38:19
The one where it reset a lot booting at Mar  8 15:00:19, was w/ LXDE, it kept resetting.

Also reported to launchpad here (In this case it crashed compiz as well): https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/mesa/+bug/1289860

Did it already worked before?
What is your GPU?
Comment 3 Bryan Quigley 2014-03-17 13:09:19 UTC
I haven't been able to get it ever working on this card.  It's a RV670 Radeon HD 3870.

Prior to this most recent build it only worked with 3.1 Compatibility profile, not core.  So this is the first NS2 build it could have worked on.

I was not succesful getting it to work on fglrx legacy driver either.. but haven't tried with the most recent build.

Closing cause I switched video cards.. and it seems like the system requirements for NS2 were higher than an HD 3870 anyway.
