again an issue with bout2 on Linux. I manually upgraded to version 1.0.3 with the procedure in http://forum.kingart-games.com/index.php/topic,14872.0.html
which resolved the deadlock in the library. However, this version has another bug. Loading the second to last chapter - the one that plays in the inside of Count Vladis castle - just hangs. I see the rotating wheels on the loading screen, but loading the level never finishes. When moving the 1.0.0 data files back to place, the game then loads.
Thus, I have now a version 1.0.0 that hangs in the lost library when returning back to the teacher room, and a 1.0.3 version that hangs when trying to load the second to last level.
Needless to say, the "launcher" and the automatic updates do not work on Debian.
