Kingpin on Ubuntu 14.04

I think that some of you will want to run this game on one of the many modern Linux distributions:

Kratz00 helped me to run this game on Ubuntu 14.04:

Here are some solutions of many issues with this game:

Segmentation Fault

I installed ghex and I modified the file

"When you start reading the Kingpin and Kingpin GL_EXTENSIONS breaks off with Received Signal 11, exiting ... Opens the with a hex editor (eg hexcurse), studied in ASCII mode by GL_EXTENSIONS and replaces the% s behind by two space (hex code 20)"


I had to install the package alsa-oss:

sudo apt-get install alsa-oss

I typed this command in the terminal to load the kernel module:

sudo modprobe snd-pcm-oss

I added this line: snd-pcm-oss to file: /etc/modules.

I rebooted my computer as root I typed this command:

echo 'kingpin.x86 0 0 direct' > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss


FInally, I can run this incredible classic game for Linux which was published in 1999:

cd kingpin
