^^ Physfs needs to be downgraded to 1.0.1 or 1.0.0 :)

thats the only one i see now of installed wares that would prevent the game to run sucessfully

Also make sure you have SDL_image and SDL_mixer
:P i had to reinstall them and then reinstall tmw afterwards.
(also just for the sake pointing out that for openGL support you need to configure with the openGL prefix as stated in the install.txt)

and do reed the dependincies requirement on the (link)wiki(/link).

can you run it this way and post the output?

bash-3.00# gdb <full path to tmw>

When it segfaults and gdb halts, type 'bt' to get a backtrace of the stack. That will come in handy.
