I encounter weird problems with some games, mostly 3d. Some games work (etracer, neverball, foobillard), some don't (supertuxkart, alienarena, warzone-2100). No errors are printed, no warnings, no CPU usage.
I get similar in console:
Code:
$ alienarena
using /home/erik/.codered/data1/ for writing
using /home/erik/.codered/arena/ for writing
execing default.cfg
couldn't exec config.cfg
Console initialized.

------- sound initialization -------

or
Code:
$ supertuxkart
Data files will be fetched from: '/usr/share/games/supertuxkart/'
Config file '/home/erik/.supertuxkart/config' does not exist, it will be created.


Warzone hangs without output at all, only black window.
I have no idea what causes it, whether mesa-7.6 and intel-2.9.0 or is it sound pulseaudio-0.9.18, alsa-1.0.20...

Does anyone have similar problems on intel X3100? All the games have worked in the past (even warzone with mesa-7.6-devel), I don't know what update had caused it.

Doesn't work with 2.8.* either. It did work with them IIRC, but not anymore. I have downgraded everything to stable versions (xorg, mesa, libdrm etc.), played with various kernels with and without KMS, it just doesn't work.
The problem seems to be video-related as no said games starts even with soundcard module unloaded.

The problem was openal built with pulseaudio. media-libs/openal doesn't seem to work well with pulseaudio above 0.9.15. I have disabled pulseaudio USE flag in openal, it has helped. Upgrading openal should help too, as seen in their logs.
