Did 'Chicken Chicken' run for you? (System survey to help with debugging)

It sounds like a few people have had trouble getting 'Chicken Chicken' to run. It'd really help me to improve the game if a few people could let me know (just add a comment to this diary entry):

Thanks, everyone. I'll appreciate your feedback.

For reference, I used Python 2.4, Soya 0.10.1 and Windows XP on a PIII 677 with 512Mb RAM and a Matrox Millenium G400. I also tested the executable on an Athlon 2400 with a Geforce 5200.

The game did crashes on my computer.

I'm on Linux and had to build all of Soya to play Soya games. Other Soya entries worked, but your game produced:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "chicken.py", line 2, in ?
from soya import sdlconst, ode, pudding
File "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/soya/ode.py", line 2, in ?
from soya._ode import *
ImportError: /usr/lib/python2.4/site-packages/soya/_ode.so: undefined symbol: dGeomTriMeshDataCreate

Have other Linux users been getting a similar error message to Richard? Since Soya was developed under Linux, I hadn't anticipated this problem. I think that the integration of the Ode engine (used for physics) into Soya is at an early stage, but that kind of error just seems weird...

Yeah, it's definitely one for the Soya folk to ponder :)

How useless was my error report. Now some actual details:
