missing when using pcsx2(lutris)

Hi, this happens when trying to run a .iso on lutris with the pcsx2 emulator runner. I installed pcsx2 itself and it wont start, instead, on terminal says: instruction illegal (core dumped).

I tried paru couldn’t find nothing; then i reinstalled the whole gtk2, but nothing changed. How to fix ?

Try installing lib32-gtk2

I did, now the error message doesnt shows up, but i still cant run pcsx2 neither in lutis or pcsx2 itself ( pcsx2 still gives the “cored dumped” thing, what does it mean ?)

Core dump means it crashed.

Well, kinda figured out the problem. I went to pcsx2 documentation (, got all the missing libs from this list:

lib32-alsa-lib lib32-bzip2 lib32-libjpeg lib32-glew lib32-nvidia-cg-toolkit lib32-portaudio lib32-sdl lib32-libaio lib32-wxgtk3 lib32-soundtouch lib32-libpcap lib32-zlib lib32-libsamplerate sparsehash fmt

and after all that, tried to compile pcsx2-git on terminal and some steps further it gave me this: error PCSX2 requires compiling for at least SSE 4.1

Which, from my brief research, it means that my system dont support SSE 4.1 (or something like that, i’m no expert, but heres my specs from inxi -FAZ --no-host | eos-sendlog anyways).

Unfortunately, the Phenom II does not support SSE 4.1

Have you looked into if it can be built with a lower version of SSE?

Well, it seems that if i use older versions of pcsx2, i should be able to workaround of this situation
