I can't get it to go past the splash screen

Question

Everything seems to work fine at first but after all the "loading" messages FG just dies without even so much as an error message.

 

I'm trying to get this to work on an IBM/Lenovo ThinkPad X200 with 2.9GHz CPU and 2GB RAM (I've managed to get FG working on much older computers with much lower specs than that).  I'm sure it should work on this.

 

The OS is Linux Mint 14.

 

My guess is that the program is trying to read or write to a location where it doesn't have permission, but I just don't know where to look.

After a lot of work I finally managed to find the location of the game and to run it from the command line.  Here are the messages I got:

 

Unknown exception in the main loop

AL Error (avionics): Segmentation fault
