Weird broken pipe error on linux

Well seems like you guys have some audio related driver/config issues.
Pulse is from pulseadudio, the other crash is even a level lower in alsa.
What version of ubuntu do you use? Cause several version had slight issues with audio in my opinion.

16.10 but I didn’t experience other Problems actually (apart from csgo and steam but according to the internet its even on Windows so it might be their side)

Note: even on windows, OpenAL will give (different) errors randomly on app shutdown.

I’m half convinced that OpenAL is doing some dodgy stuff on shutdown or the way JME is terminating it is not correct.

Yeah, but this specific problem happens on app startup, not shutdown.

1 in 200 times or so, I will also get an OpenAL related crash on startup in windows.
