Hey guys I am very interested to be able to get League of Legends working on Ubuntu 14.10. I have seen many people do it and the game looks very playable for them. I dont have much direction on why the patcher does not progress but so far it has stopped at the following points


First Attempt - 71%

Second Attempt - 65%

Third Attempt - 53%

I installed it via the PlayOnLinux client without any issues.

If anyone has any fixes for this I would love you forever AND would love to add to the guide. If this has not been an issue for anyone (Weirdly I find myself with either a perfect setup or a catastrophic failure that no one can ever debug) I would be happy to poke around a lot and find the root cause and post a solution I just dont want to be digging for things that have been fixed already.

For me it can take between 3 and 5 hours to seem to make progress (but when you look at the patcher logs it's frantically patching files in the background, it just gives too little feedback, check files under ~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/LeagueOfLegends/drive_c/Riot Games/League of Legends/Logs/Patcher Logs/).

I completely forgot about the patcher logs. I will check those when it snags again.

This is an old topic, but since I was having the same issue recently I didgged a little bit into it.

It seems that from a fresh install during patching the LOLPatcher creates ~100k small files in:

~/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/LeagueOfLegends/drive_c/Riot Games/League of Legends/RADS/temp

So I instead symbolic linked (ln -s) this directory to a ram disk (tmpfs partition, make sure it is configured with 8G, since during installation it took ~7Gb).  After that it took some 2 to 3 hours to install.

I also have the temp file being filled with thousands of files. How do you do (ln -s) exactly? I'm a bit new to linux so I have no idea how to do that.

hey bonana, I forgo about this, and only today I noticed it, when searching for something else.

Here are the commands I used:

    $ sudo mkdir /mnt/tmpfs

    $ sudo mount -o size=8G -t tmpfs tmpfs --target /mnt/tmpfs

And after that:

    $ cd ~/".PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/LeagueOfLegends/drive_c/Riot Games/League of Legends/RADS"

    $ mv temp temp.old

    $ ln -sf /mnt/tmpfs temp

After the installation concludes you may want to revert:

    $ rm temp

    $ mv temp.old temp

    $ sudo umount /mnt/tmpfs
