Try and remove the openal lib from the lib folder in the installation directory. This should make the game use the system installed openal instead which might work better.

Thanks for your suggestion
before removing openal lib from the lib folder i get this message:

-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------
open /dev/[sound/]dsp: No such file or directory
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Penumbra exited unexpectedly, please check
/home/cortez/.frictionalgames/Penumbra Overture/Episode1/hpl.log
for any error messages
Also try running
ulimit -c unlimited
And re-running Penumbra and try and recreate the error
then submit the generated core file or stack trace
-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------

removing libopenal.so.0

-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------
./penumbra.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libopenal.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Penumbra exited unexpectedly, please check
/home/cortez/.frictionalgames/Penumbra Overture/Episode1/hpl.log
for any error messages
Also try running
ulimit -c unlimited
And re-running Penumbra and try and recreate the error
then submit the generated core file or stack trace
-------------------------------------//-------------------------------------

removing libopenal.so.0.0.0 i get the same error...

First off make sure you have openal installed, I thought it was installed by default, but could be it isn't.

I think I already have openal installed... anyway, reinstalled libopenal-data, libopenal1 and libopenal1:i386

same error as before:
without libopenal.so.0 and libopenal.so.0.0.0 in lib folder
---------- // ----------
./penumbra.bin: error while loading shared libraries: libopenal.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
