64-bit version not working. Run Jamestown x86 version

On Ubuntu 16.04 64-bit LTS:

1. sudo apt install alsa-oss
2. Copy a 32-bit version of the libsteam_api.so library from another steam game to the <install_dir>/data/x86 directory.
3. In terminal go to in <install_dir>/data.
4. Let linker know about the <install_dir>/data/x86 directory and run 32-bit version of the game:

LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./x86:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH exec ./Jamestown-x86

Try if it works on 14.04.
64-bit version of the games crashes.

5. load snd_pcm_oss module:

sudo modprobe snd_pcm_oss

6. To avoid this step after each restart, follow post #11 or #13 from:


Note that the full path to modprobe is different and /etc/rc.local is initally not empty in Ubuntu.
