If you are having problems running with linux, try the following:

Right click on Savage 2 in desura -> properties and add: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=".":"$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
to the user launch options.

It is a library issue that can also be corrected by moving the .so files to the libs directory.

go to your desura/common/savage2-a-tortured-soul/ and run: LD_LIBRARY_PATH=".":"./game"$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

I tried the methods listed above with nothing but a quick flash of black screen and nothing happens.

This is what prints out. x64 Ubuntu 11.10, Radeon HD4850 1GB, 9GB RAM, 2.67GHz i7
