Standalone Client on Fedora: 3/16/2020 23:45:27

Attempting to run the Standalone Client [1] on Fedora Linux 31 results in the following message:

Warzone could not connect to the Warzone servers. Please check your internet connection and try again. If problems persist, please try again later.

Simultaneously, this error is written repeatedly to $HOME/.config/unity3d/Warzone.com, LLC_/Warzone/Player.log:

Curl error 77: Error reading ca cert file from /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

This appears to be a common Unity3D problem, and can be "fixed" by means of this workaround:

sudo ln -s /etc/ssl/certs/ca-bundle.crt /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt

This may affect other RPM-based distributions (CentOS, OpenSUSE) as well. Apparently it is unwise to depend on the ca-bundle.crt file [2], so it would be nice to find a more permanent solution. Any ideas?

In the meantime, I figured I would post this in case anyone else tries to run the Standalone Client on Fedora.

Sorry you ran into a problem, but I'm glad you were able to find a workaround. This isn't something I'm in direct control of as it sounds like an issue within Unity itself. If you choose to take it to the next step, you could file a bug against Unity. To do this you'd likely have to install the Unity editor itself (it's free) and then go to Help -> Report a Bug.
