Description of problem:
I have observed this problem with scorched3d.  Bug 203336 indicates that it also
affects TORCS.  Until the last openal update, scorched3d worked fine on my
system, an x86_64 platform with an on-motherboard ICH7 sound system.  Now
scorched3d cannot be played with the sound turned on.  It will run for a short
time, typically less than a minute, then crash.  When it crashes, this is the

(gdb) bt
#0  _alFloatMul (bpt=0x1e3cff8, sa=Variable "sa" is not available.
) at arch/i386/x86_floatmul.c:88

This only happens on the x86_64 platform.  I have a 32-bit x86 platform where it
works fine.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start scorched3d on an x86_64 machine.
2. Make sure that sound is turned on.
3. Play, typically for less than one minute.
Actual results:
Scorched3d crashes, regardless of video settings.

Expected results:
Scorched3d should continue playing normally.

Hm, I wonder if this has to do with the latest upgrade and the patch that was
added... will investigate...
Comment 2 Andreas Bierfert 2006-11-05 17:17:21 EST
Could you retry with the latest version? newest scorched works for me.
Comment 3 Jerry James 2006-11-07 11:36:13 EST
It works for me, too.  Thanks!
