When trying to run Reaper 0.98.1 the system locks up
when selecting 'start'. I've gotten it to run a couple
of times (3) but thats all with all graphics selections
set to 'on' and all audio selections enabled. System
info is:

AMD 1.2ghz processor
FIC AZ11E MB
256MB Ram
GeForce2 MX400 Video with 64mb ram
Mandrake Linux 8.2

It looks like a fantastic game if only it would run.
Attached is my debug.out file

    Can you run other program which make heavy use
    of accelerated 3d-graphics?
    A system lockup suggests that there are problems
    with the driver or AGP configuration...

    Peter, tried clicking on the link within my email and get:

    Error:
    Artifact: Invalid Artifact ID

    So, I'll try leaving a followup here. Other games, ie..Vega Strike, work fine. When Reaper did work, the graphics
    were nice and smooth. Its just that it locked up. I haven't tried it lately though.

    I have the same problem here with version 0.98.2 on an
    Athlon 2600 with Radeon 9500.

    Other 3d-apps, such as Quake3, RtCW or Vendetta run fine.

    I have the EXACTLY same problem!

    But i found a way to ... well, at least somehow ... solve it.

    I disable all sounds, and then the game runs smooth and
    sweet as hell. But there's no sound. Even if i try "simple"
    sfx sound options, or any other, the game hangs. It can
    start only without sound.

    So, i'm suggesting this is a soundsystem related bug. Me too
    have AMD processor (XP 2000+), and my SiS7012 AC'97
    soundcard is integrated into a motherboard K7S5AL, using SiS
    735 chipset. My graphics card is nVidia GeForce FX 5900.

    Maybe this is somekinda bug in your OpenAL stuff?

    Oh yeah, and here is my debug.out ... this link surely works.

    http://genometal.servu.org/files/debug.out

    ... as you can see, there is a part:
    ...
    [11 02:20:31] gfx_plugin(5) msg: 12
    [11 02:20:36] config(5) Reading config: game.defaults
    [11 02:20:36] config(5) Reading config: game
    ...
    where there is missing sumthing from that "[11 02:20:36]
    config(5) Reading config: game" line, a dot+something ... it
    could not load a conf file? just guessing.

    hope this helps.
