Do no work steam version hitman demo (2016)

Hello, does anyone know the solutions for crashing native hitman demo (2016)? It works great on ubuntu, but crashes on manjaro without errors. Steam-runtime doesn’t work either, other games work great.(Tomb raider 2013,Mad Max,DiRT4 and etc)

The solution to which issue? Find the issue before asking for a solution.

I assume the issue is the demo crashing :grimacing:

Have you looked at the game entry on protondb? there might be some solutions that might work for you.

I searched , everything I found does not work

Solutions do not work for the native version, but I know very well that the proton works, but I need a native.

Maybe this?

Startup option:

VK_ICD_FILENAMES=/usr/share/vulkan/icd.d/nvidia_icd.json %command%

Clearly, that is for nvidia.

what does vulkan api and nvidia have to do with it? I use amd r5 m330 with the amdgpu driver, and hitman uses opengl by default.


ok well just for a try… and I see this this error, when I run steam from terminal:

[1009/] Running without the SUID sandbox! See for more information on developing with the sandbox on.

After investigation I come to conclusion that this specific function “__libc_dlopen_mode” was removed from newer glibc versions, since it is clearly marked as private and only internal use.

Anything above glibc 2.33 is affected. On Manjaro we use glibc 3.36 already… Therefore I conclude on Ubuntu (20.04?) a version below 2.33 is in use. There was merge of libdl into libc, so the function have to be addressed another way on newer versions.

However this issue can only be addressed by the devs of hitman.
