  • binaries aren't built with the same GPU firmware (I think).
vchiq_lib: Very incompatible VCHIQ library - cannot retrieve driver version
* failed to open vchiq instance

Fix it with a new binary.


If you downloaded directly in to the 'quake3' folder, then you'll need to rename it.

mv ioquake3.arm ioquake3.arm.orig
mv ioquake3.arm.1 ioquake3.arm

and make the new code executable

chmod +x ioquake3.arm
  • No PAK files

pak0.pk3 is missing. Please copy it
from your legitimate Q3 CDROM.

Point Release files are missing. Please
re-install the 1.32 point release.

Also check that your Q3 executable is in
the correct place and that every file
in the baseq3 directory is present and readable.
