Had some issues with sound on this due alsa-oss inexperience and compounded by having my card jump ids in /proc/asound.

The following setup works for me now:

Maybe someone finds that useful.

Can not install beacause function package() is missing in PKGBUILD

hanskloss, thank you for advice!

Package works great on IvyBridge based laptop. Only problem the sound.
First got could not open /dev/dsp error, which was resolved by modprobe snd-pcm-oss
and second error: Could not mmap /dev/dsp resolved by
echo "quake3.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
echo "quake3.x86 0 0 disable" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss

At this point game started with sound and froze shortly after. Last fix,starting game:
quake3 +set s_musicvolume -1

finally made it playable. I tried using et-sdl-sound as some sites suggested but with no luck.

Game crashes as soon as I start a match.
Try "ioquake3-git", this package worked for me.

New Sources

Replace old sources into PKGBUILD before makepkg

I reinstalled this to verify that it does still build and run fine on 32bit (I usually use ioquake3). I don't have a 64bit system to test.

I am having the same issues as DarwinSuvivor using an nvidia GPU in x86_64.

Had to ssh into the machine to restart it as all TTY's and X have a complete freeze.

Could someone test this on 32 bit?

just checked, the ioquake3 package does not cause the error, using it instead.

quake3 exits after trying to start up (gui never loads) and then the entire system freezes (caps/numlock lights don't trigger, tty0 innacessible, etc).
x86_64 machine using nvidia.
using the .run installers from idsoft work fine (1.32b not 1.32c). I will try the ioquake3 package and see if that works.
