Q3/RtCW/Alsa Beta10: No sound... welp?

Post by Gilboa Dava » Mon, 24 Dec 2001 20:42:54



Hello all,

Problem is simple:
I've compiled and installed the latest ALSA packages
(driver/lib/oss/utils).

working nicely).
If I try starting the Q3/RtCW while artsd is active, the the program
hangs indefinitely at the "sound initialization? stage. (Even if I'm
root... its not a permissions problem on /dev/dsp)
If I suspend the artsd service by issuing a artsshell suspend, I get
"/dev/dsp: broken pipe" error.
I'm using a modified 2.4.9 kernel (-march athlon, support for AMD760
AGP) with OSS/Free module support on a RH7.2 Linux.

Update,
When I run aplay <file> I get sound, but after a second the sound dies
and I get a "read/write error".

Welp?

Check the chmod settings for /dev/sound or something?

Dont think so.
/dev/dsp* and /dec/snd/* are all a+rw.

I have no idea. Try asking this on
http://quake3world.com/cgi-bin/forumdisplay.cgi?action=topics&forum=*...
or on Alsa's mailing list if it has one.

1. KDE3 / sound in quake3/rtcw

I installed KDE3 a few days ago, and I'm now unable to get sound in
quake3 (and rtcw).  Sound works fine in KDE itself, I can use XMMS etc
without problems.  Someone suggested that I kill ARTSD and try, I did
this and still had the same problem.  The error given by Q3 is..

------- sound initialization -------
/dev/dsp: Device or resource busy
Could not open /dev/dsp
------------------------------------

I don't understand why, if ARTSD has been killed? (confirmed killed by
console message).  Sound worked fine with KDE2* and when I switched
back it started working again.  It just refuses to work in KDE3.  

Anyone got any ideas? Anything else I should try?  Something else needs
installed? What should the permissions be?  Is that relevant?
