strace shows that it's looking for


when it in fact should be looking for


Relevant snippet:

   write(1, "Console initialized.\n"..., 21) = 21
   write(1, "------- sound initialization ----"..., 37) = 37
   write(1, "Loading sound module: openal\n"..., 29) = 29
   open("/home/michael/.warsow/libs/snd_openal_x86_64.so", O_RDONLY) = -1
   ENOENT (No such file or directory)
   open("/usr/share/games/warsow/libs/snd_openal_x86_64.so", O_RDONLY) = -1
   ENOENT (No such file or directory)
   write(1, "LoadLibrary (libs/snd_openal_x86_"..., 52) = 52
   write(1, "Loading openal failed\n"..., 22) = 22
   write(1, "Loading sound module: qf\n"..., 25) = 25
   open("/home/michael/.warsow/libs/snd_qf_x86_64.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT
   (No such file or directory)
   open("/usr/share/games/warsow/libs/snd_qf_x86_64.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT
   (No such file or directory)
   write(1, "LoadLibrary (libs/snd_qf_x86_64.s"..., 48) = 48
   write(1, "Loading qf failed\n"..., 18)  = 18
   write(1, "Couldn't load a sound module\n"..., 29) = 29
   write(1, "---------------------------------"..., 37) = 37

Doing "ln -s /usr/lib/games/warsow/libs ~/.warsow/" results in sound
working for me. I have libopenal 1:1.4.272-2 (but not libopenal0a) installed.
