ioquake3 on Debian Lenny/testing

I got this error after installing:

$ ioquake3
./ioquake3.i386: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Make sure you have libopenal1 package installed and then make a symlink from /usr/lib/ to the actual library file.

# ln -s /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/

Run ldconfig just to be safe.

# ldconfig

ioquake3 now works.
