the game starts, I can edit the options, I can decide to play on a network or against bots, but as soon as its supposed to load the actual game so I can play, it immediately crashes to desktop. above is the console output in the terminal.

here is the crashlog.txt

Did you install the game from a linux repo (apt-get etc.), or did you download from official website and manually extract it?
If it is the first case, I strongly recommend you to try the second one.

yeah, I installed it from the linux repo, I'll look into getting it from an official source


edit:

downloaded it from the internet archive and it works fine, shouldn't someone also be making the one from the repos work too? or just remove it from the repos all together?

OpenArena developers don't have any control over the various Linux repos...
