League Of Legends Game Client does not start

Attempting to use new platinum version of the installer/game “Vsyscall32 override w/d9vk version”
League Client installs fine; I go to join a new game, but after champ select the Game Client opens and closes within a second. After this, the League Client shows the “reconnect” button. Clicking this just repeats the issue, with the Game Client opening and closing in a second.

This runner was added just eight hours ago. :slight_smile:

A user schwake posted exact the same issue in the comments. He used an appimage to make it work. Then a user gshulegaard made a comment to make the following change to the file sysctl.conf.

$ sudo bash -c 'echo "abi.vsyscall32 = 0" >> /etc/sysctl.conf && sysctl -p'

Which adds the text abi.vsyscall32 = 0 into this file and when that succeeds runs the command sysctl -p to load the config.

WARNING: sysctl is a tool to change kernel variables on the fly. A very powerful tool.

You can also use this command without writing it to the config and making it persistent. When something goes wrong then a reboot would be enough to undo the changes. When persisted in the config it will be there every time:

sysctl -w abi.vsyscall32 = 0

The Lutris game thread:

Thanks, but I already applied those settings, the result of which is the “/proc/sys/abi/vsyscall32” file having a value of 0, as noted in my post.


Ah. Sorry, missed that one.

This line from the log stands out:

158 005c:err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.

Winbind is a name service switch daemon for resolving names from NT servers. It apparently cannot find it.

This is the next one I would investigate…

Thanks, but still no dice. Updated winbind with no change in game behavior.
