It so happens I'm troubleshooting a sound problem myself, and I ran across this in the readme file for the alsa drivers:

Quote:
Sound Blaster 16/AWE
--------------------
Quake and other OSS/Free programs should abort with 'Segmentation
fault' or other errors. This is due to ALSA driver isn't able support
8-bit or 16-bit sample wide for mmaped (direct) access at some time
(this depends if some other application isn't using record or playback
direction). For normal access ALSA driver does sample width conversions.
You can try use different sample width for these programs.
Hope that helps...
Mike

I hope you're joking...a game being old is no reason to stop playing it. I only bought Quake2 last week, I don't like quake 3
