Frequent crashes on 64-bit platforms

Do you have 64-bit Linux and experience frequent crashes? It’s known OpenAL problem.

  1. Report about that problem to your distro’s bug tracker.
  2. OpenAL must be built without MMX support. There’s no performance penalty on modern platforms. Also you could remove __MMX__ related code by yourself, as I did for debian packages.
  3. As a temporary solution — you could switch off sound with --no-sound command line argument or set disable-music/sound in ~/.btanks/bt.xml.
