Sys_Error: Couldn't load default.cfg

then in the shell:

wget http://fnorded.org/quake/pak0.pk3


sudo mv pak3.pk3 /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3

problem with the sound:

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

Could not mmap dma buffer PROT_WRITE|PROT_READ

trying mmap PROT_WRITE (with associated better compatibility / less performance code)

/dev/dsp: Input/output error

Could not mmap /dev/dsp


check to write permissions /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

if not

sudo chmod 777 /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

then in the shell

echo "quake3.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss && quake3

and enjoy
