Starting game while Chrome running


janinko

Question

I run into problem when I tried to run PoE while my Chrome was running. I have linux and using strace I was able to pinpoint that it was Chrome GPU process causing the problem.

 

In /home/janinko/.config/unity3d/Player.log was:

Player is already running

(Filename:  Line: 438)

Using strace, I found out that when starting PoE, it scans /proc folder (and IMHO tries to figure out if the app is already running).

Strace output:

Process 6029 was started by cmd /proc/self/exe from chrome - meaning it directed to /opt/google/chrome/chrome for the chrome. However /proc/6029/cmdline (line 6) contained as a command /proc/self/exe (line 9) and when PoE tried to determine what /proc/self/exe is (line 19), it obviously found itself thinking it is another instance of PoE resulting into the log "Player is already running" and shutdown.

 

At least message for the user stating that PoE is already running (although in this case it would be false) would be nice.
