Ok, just installed the linux version of Tribes 2 on my AMD64 2800+,
running Debian Sid. Game works fine when I do offline play, or host a
server (only have used bots, never had anyone join), but when I try to
join a match, it queries the master server, pings about 300 servers, and
then says couldnt find any servers. Is the master down, or has it changed
since release (I know the T1 server did).

Also, when I run the patcher I get this

--------------
hellmark@monstershit:~$ '/home/hellmark/tribes2-25034-cdrom-x86.run'
Verifying archive integrity...OK
Uncompressing Tribes 2 25034 Update................................................................................................................................
../update.sh: line 60: 6601 Segmentation fault loki_patch --verify patch.dat
The program returned an error code (1)

found out in my reading, and also first hand, that the patch breaks sound
on alot of systems. Now T2 doesnt recognize I have a sound card.

I'm running a SB Audigy. From what I've heard, its from the clientprefs.cs
getting hosed during the update and is quite common for those who run ALSA
instead of OSS.

Oh that! Easy, just delete the audio entries in the clientprefs.cs file.
That'll force T2 to find the audio settings again.

Yeah, I already did that. I dont quite like T2 as much as the original,
but its growing on me. I just had a great match, no TK'ing, no
complaining, no newbies, just running and killing.
