[LINUX] Game Recently Started Hanging at Initial Loading Screen


I have 60+ hours into Dying Light on my Manjaro Linux setup.  I was playing as recently as 2/28/2020.  However, sometime within the last week, the game started hanging at the initial loading screen (the one with the white loading bar at the bottom).

The loading bar makes it to the 100% mark and then prints this message to the console: malloc_consolidate(): invalid chunk size

The only way to kill the process at this point in time is to run the `kill` command in a separate terminal.

Things I've tried:

  • Re-installing the game
  • Restarting my computer
  • Verifying game cache
  • System upgrade
  • Forcing the game to run with Proton 5

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

1. I also made the same mistake after upgrade Ubuntu 18.04 to 20.04. After a clean installation system everything worked.
2. In the launch parameters there was a custom command

gamemoderun %command%

After deleting the command, the game started.

3. Check the startup on the newly installed system.
