Hi David

Yesterday I tried a free game "Flight of the Amazon Queen - Freeware CD Version (unmodified original)" from the Free games site:
- https://www.scummvm.org/games/

It produce sound here, looks fine, point and click works. It is usable here for the moment. Alt+Enter for fullscreen works, but here it can make the audio crack.

Hi David.

I think I found an issue here. In my ArcaOS VirtualBox ScummVM works fine, sounds and it is playable. In real hardware it runs, but it is very, very, very slow when running the game.
Is that the issue you are experimenting ? It is super slow, but it is not affecting the operating system performance.

Regards

ScummVM gives me an error about not being able to find OGG0 when launching from the command line.  Further troubleshooting I found I also needed libogg, libvorbis and libtheora installed.

Hello

I'm still trying to find out what can be wrong here. ScummVM works fine in the VirtualBox guest, but it is very, very, very slow in the Thinkpad T14s. I will try it out tomorror on the Thinkpad L420 and check what happens.

It'd be interesting if you see similar patterns with other SDL apps - I'd have to guess this is due to SDL, not the scummvm port - as I recall seeing sluggishness with openttd as well

Hello again

On the Thinkpad L420 , ScummVM 2.8.0 works fine with "Flight of the Amazon Queen - Freeware CD Version (unmodified original)".
Installed:
- ScummVM 2.8.0
- "Flight of the Amazon Queen - Freeware CD Version (unmodified original)"
- yum install SDL2 SDL2_net
And it works.

Not sure what else to check. Both machines are up to date with the YUM repository updates. Maybe I will check Panorama and Uniaud versions.
Any suggestions are welcome.

On my ArcaOS 5.0 box I get a

'The system cannot find the file GLIB2124." error when trying to start from the CLI. I installed Fribidi and all of the other dependencies. Fribidi says it requires GLib 2.12.4 from 2006, is this correct? I tried installing GLib 2.12.4 and my system does not like it.

I don't have GLIB2124 on my VM and Scummvm is working.  Only glib20.dll.

Right. I don't remember installing it on my 5.1 machine.
