SirNanigans Posted January 15, 2016 Share Posted January 15, 2016 After investigating a segmentation fault after an [S_API FAIL] error, I discovered that others running Arch are experiencing the same error. The fault traces back to libcrypto.so.1.0.0, a lib file for openSSL. OpenSSL is responsible for encrypting data, and is probably also the cause of the [S_API FAIL] which crops up when communicating with steam to launch the online server. This error only occurs when launching an online server; offline works perfectly fine. Arch currently runs openSSL 1.0.2.e from official repositories. According to Arch power users, the segmentation fault is likely caused by a discrepancy between the openSSL version on the system and that which the nullrenderer was compiled against. If anyone is experiencing the same issue or is willing to help confirm and/or solve this issue, please confirm your openSSL version (openSSL -version), verify that libcrypto.so.1.0.0 is present (in /usr/lib/), and test to see if the error occurs. Thanks in advance for the assistance. Hopefully this issue will not crop up on other distributions as they adopt new openSSL versions. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
