I am guessing you have 64 bit Ubuntu installed. If so, open a terminal and type:

cd Installfolderlocation/survivor/lib32/

obviously replace "Installfolderlocation" with the path you chose to install the game to.

mv libasound.so.2 libasound.so.2_old
ln -s /usr/lib32/libasound.so.2 libasound.so.2

These commands will rename a sound library shipped with the Game, and replace it with a symlink to the corresponding library shipped with Ubuntu.

Sound should work afterwards. (Tested on Ubuntu 11.04 64bit.)

yes I have ubuntu 64-bit. –  Pablo Apr 13 '11 at 21:44
well did it work then? –  Uli Apr 13 '11 at 22:42
It worked well after rebooting the system. Thanks! –  Pablo Apr 14 '11 at 5:00
np, glad to hear it! –  Uli Apr 14 '11 at 7:55

Installing package 'libopenal1' fixed my problem. Now I have sound in Oilrush running on Ubuntu 11.10 64-bits.

sudo aptitude install libopenal1
