Linux OOTP Licence Issue

Post by FardyCydaytew » Sat 20 Jun, 2009 3:23 am

After starting OOTP it prompted me to re enter the license due to a system change, at which point it wouldn't accept the original key. It gave me a message stating the game wasn't activated, I don't remember the exact wording, but I believe it was the same message I saw in a forum posting where the problem was the server was busy, so I tried the manual box, but got the same message.

I'm still able to play the game using the second key, and don't plan on installing on any other machines, so I guess as long as I'm more careful in the future there shouldn't be any problem. Should I just unlicense before compiling the kernel, or before any upgrade of system software (glibc, drivers, X and so on), or before any upgrade period?

I am trying to make the serial number less sensitive but everyones system is different. Did it ask you to re-enter the license? if so what happened?

If you are going to recompile release the license first and you will not have any issues.

I have the same problem; I updated my graphics card driver and now OOTPX says my license is invalid, and asks me to re-enter it. I enter my license, hit OK, it thinks for a minute, then disables the OK button. Should I submit a release request for that license?

This is the same issue that affected the mac users, see here:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=8

You should install patch 1 that has only recently been released:
http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/joomla/ ... -ootp.html

Make sure you follow the Linux instructions at the bottom of the page. This should fix your issue allowing you to re-enter your serial number if anything changes on your system in the future. Let me know if you have any more trouble.

Cool, that fixed it, thanks!

By the way, the main link there to download the Linux patch (step 6) is 404ed. I had to download it from the mirror.

Glad your all sorted and I will pass the dodgy link onto the relevant chap ;)
