linux lockup after few minutes every time


    • play for 2 - 3 minutes
    • system locks up, keyboard LEDs stop responding, magic sysrq of course does nothing
    • hold down power and restart computer, start playing again
    • rinse repeat, it does it again

    Info:
    Arch Linux 64 bit
    Pentium Dual Core E5300 (I know)
    6Gb ram

    I assumed it was a swap issue so I turned off swap, tried reducing as well as increasing it, but didn't affect it. This persists across the recent 0.2 release. I think the game runs fine (it's smooth) until (I'm assuming) it runs out of ram at which point it starts swapping hard and the system freezes. Only 1 time did it ever return to normal after about 3 minutes but normally it won't even after 30 minutes. I guess you could blame my outdated CPU but I'm guessing that modern computers get lag spikes as well. If you can fix it great but if you can't I guess I'll just have to get a new computer
