Playing multiple sounds simultaneously

Playing multiple sounds simultaneously

Post by Nicholas Holm » Fri, 02 Oct 1998 04:00:00

Is it possible to get linux to play multiple sounds at the same time
(through /dev/dsp) ? In particular, I'd like to play mp3's during
Quake/Quake2. If not, are there any projects underway to allow this?



1. can't get ALSA to play multiple sources simultaneously

I'm using the latest beta ALSA drivers with a CMI 8738 soundcard (cmipci
driver) on Redhat 7.2 and I can't get multiple sound source output
simultanesouly. I've just got a new box and I've got multiple sources
working fine on my old box using an ESS 1878 soundcard (es18xx driver) but
I can't get it working with the new card.

Has anyone had any experience with this card and the ALSA drivers, or if
not, know of a #define or ./configure parameter that I can pass to get
this working?

Any help is much appreciated.
