Hi there,

I just spend a few hours of precious time trying to get SPAZ (The Humble Bundle version) to run again on a Debian testing (Wheezy) 64-bit machine. As I couldn't find anything in the forum regarding the problem, here is my problem description and the solution for others to find.

The Problem:

I have a Core i7 notebook (Intel HD 3000) running the testing version of Debian (Wheezy) with some packages out of unstable and experimental. After a few weeks of not playing SPAZ (The Humble Bundle version) today my whole X server crashed when I tried to start SPAZ. I found no log messages (perhaps I missed them somewhere) and only got a clue when the i386 version of Matlab also didn't start up.

The Solution:

It turns out that the Humble Bundle version of SPAZ is a 32 bit binary and as Wheezy now uses multiarch to install i386 versions of the packages needed to run 32 bit application, I also had to configure the machine to be able to install packages for i386:
sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
sudo aptitude update

Then it was only a matter of installing the right packages to get SPAZ working again:
aptitude install libx11-6:i386
aptitude install libxext-dev:i386
aptitude install libxt-dev:i386
aptitude install libxmu-dev:i386
aptitude install libgl1-mesa-glx:i386

I'm not sure if you need all the above packages, but those did the trick for me. Can anybody tell me how to get a specific list of libraries which SPAZ needs? ldd gives you the directly linked libraries, but for example libGL.so is nowhere to be found in the ldd output... Also, NVIDIA and ATI users probably will need to install some kind of i386 version of the driver specific Opengl stuff.
