[ut2004] hit-hit-hitching on debian etch

Ok I did that and it did seem to lessen the hitching quite a bit although it did not go away entirely.

Just to clarify, in /usr/lib there was libopenal.so.0 which was a link to libopenal.so. does it matter which one I copy to the games System directory and do I need to rename it to libopenal.so?

Also, any other suggestions? I'm not afraid to compile my own kernel if that's what it takes :-)

Thanks again. You all are awesome.

Try forcing it to use the system provided openal.so driver provided,
I've seen it cause problems like this with ALSA

copy your system openal.so into the ut2004/system...at least it's
worked for me and a few others...
