What works

Installation is fine no issues there.

Login Works only after installing the HTML mozilla plugin It seems to only work when used in a virtual desktop window. I did not test the full screen feature after setting the Virtual desktop mode however and installing the Mozilla plugin.

Updates also work provided the above has been met.

Abler to login and get to character selection screen

Also the Windows based Saitek Keyboard bug is not present here (I have such a keyboard)

Gameplay works fine. Some minor graphical glitches.

Can switch out of application with alt tab when windowed. (not tested in fullscreen yet)


What does not

 

Changing resolutions does not appear to work in windowed mode.

Additional Comments

For the moment it is a silver. It seems just as buggy as the Windows version but at this point it seems to just work which is great.

HowTo / Notes

Resolving black screen (err:d3d_surface GL_INVALID_ENUM)

On Gentoo systems, PlanetSide will not work out of the box due to a missing Mesa library (note: if you are using proprietary AMD or NVIDIA graphics drivers, you probably won't need to worry about this) . Here are the steps and triage I used to debug the issues I was having.

Upon start, the PlanetSide window would launch, sound would be heard, but nothing would get drawn. The console was being spammed with messages similar to:

err:d3d_surface:surface_upload_data >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> GL_INVALID_ENUM (0x500) from glTexSubImage2D @ surface.c / 2369

This search led me to this bug which says that libtxc_dxtn.so is required for PlanetSide to load textures. To verify that this was in fact the missing library, I ran: MESA_DEBUG=1 wine LaunchPad.exe and looked for the error: Mesa warning: couldn't open libtxc_dxtn.so, software DXTn compression/decompression unavailable. This appeared and I resolved the problem by running emerge -va media-libs/libtxc_dxtn (for Debian/Ubuntu run apt-get install libtxc-dxtn-s2tc). I hope this resolves most people's problems with this specific issue.
