Hello everyone!

I have a Homeworld GOTY cd. I want to run game in my linux pc. It is Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 32 bit dual boot with Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit.

I have installed the game in windows and it runs fine. As it can be played in linux so I decided to install it in linux.

So I have downloaded homeworld for linux from this site.

After doing neccecary settings [extracting archive to a directory, copying data files from cd and win directory to game directory]
when I typed:


in my terminal I got following message displayed and game didn't run.

Scanning for newer files in .
Compared 36 filesystem files to main & update bigfiles.
0 files found newer than main bigfile in filesystem.
0 files found newer than update bigfile in filesystem.
Homeworld CRCs = 0x0 (not used) 0x52f110b0 (Homeworld.big's TOC) 0x291050b6 (Update.big's TOC) 0x0 (not used)
Assertion 'p' failed at pulsecore/memblock.c:836, function pa_mempool_block_size_max(). Aborting.
Aborted (core dumped)

I have allowed the executable execution permission by using
chmod +x homeworld

I have searched for this issue in the web but found no solution. :(
I will be very grateful if anyone can help me to find the the cause of this error and possibly a solution.

Thank you.

Did you build homeworld on Linux from source yourself? Or did you directly use the binary downloaded from the site?

I build the binary from source on Debian myself, and it works fine (including the audio). But the point is I need to 'apt-get install libasound2-dev libpulse-dev' and also build SDL myself.
