@Greg: The error message indicates that you might have a filesystem error on your computer. Could you please run a filesystem check (availabe in the ubuntu rescue mode) and a momory check (availabe start startup with the ESC key) and check if those report no error?

Sebastien Bacher (seb128) said : #3

the error seems to indicate a local installation issue or local changes, that's not a package bug, changing to an user question

@Micheal: Memtest passed with no errors. I also ran fsck, which didn't report an error on my root partition. however, it gave me a warning about checking mounted filesystems when it tried to check my /home partition. A filesystem error would make sense, though. On an earlier boot of Intrepid, the automatic filesystem check ran and corrected some errors on the root partition. I have had numerous problems with filesystem errors and random system crashes in recent weeks. I suspect my hard drive is beginning to fail.

While the original problem regarding gnome-games isn't solved, at least my suspicions about the filesystem and my hardware has been confirmed.

Can you help with this problem?
