I'm running Fedora Core 10, latest patchlevel of pretty much everything.  AMD Phenom 9150e 1.8ghz quad core, 6G RAM, NVIDIA GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 (with the kmod-nvidia-173xx drivers)

The app fires up, and then freezes.  After it "unfreezes", I can navigate the menus (barely) and I've gotten the program to start once.  It actually ran just fine.  But any change of activity causes a freeze.  Below is the output from dmesg from one particular attempt to run the program where I had multiple successive soft lockups.  Any ideas/thoughts very much welcomed, as this game is AWESOME, and I can't wait to find a fix :)

Thanks!
