Quake 2: Libraries not found

Hi. I'm trying to run Quake 2 in GL mode using GLX, and I'm getting some errors that sound like Quake cannot find the libraries even though there in the same directory as the binary. Here's the session message:

ref_gl version: GL 0.01 cannot opem shared object file: No such file or directory
ref_gl::R_Init() - could not load ""

When starting quake I use this command:

./quake2 +set vid_ref glx +set s_initsound 0 +set _windowed_mouse 1

I'm using a GeForce 4 MX 420 with the latest kernel and GLX drivers from Nvidia. The reason I have to turn off sound is I get this error when sound tries to initialize:

sound sampling rate: 11025
Segmentation fault

The soundcard is a SoundBlasterLive Value! using emu10k1 module. I've tried other sampling rates with no success. The sound works for other games like TuxRacer and PrBoom. If someone knows how to rectify either of these then please let me know. I would rather get the video fixed. I can live without the sound for the time being.

Look if you have libraries with similar names to "" and "". Then make symlinks with the names quake needs.

Also make sure the path where the libraries are located is added in the /etc/ file. After that run the command /sbin/ldconfig to update the cache information.
