First, make sure you are using linux_compat8 not 7.  If that alone
works, then wonderful.  If not, then the next part depends on what
processor you have.  If you can support MMX/SSE, the enable SSE in
your kernel (off by default in 4.x I believe) and try again.

When CS:S first came out, I had to do the SSE/compat8 thing to get it
working on an Athlon XP box under 4.x, my Athlon XP box that was
running 5.x had no problem once I install compat.  For a long time, I
couldn't run it on my test server (K6-2 350, no SSE possible), but
sometime recently Valve must have fixed it to use old CPUs as well as
it did work the last time I tried.

Hope this helps, let me know if it doesn't.
