I've just download the game under my Debian Jessie (4.9.0-0.bpo.3-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.9.30-2+deb9u5~bpo8+1 (2017-09-28) x86_64 GNU/Linux).
During the first try of world generation, and during all others, the screen block (before dupe selection) on "Generation world, Oh dear let's try this again 0.0"
I attach my log find in ~/.config/unity3d/Klei/Oxygen Not Included/Player.log
Let me know if you need anything else.
