First of all, I am very grateful for the installers as it is, the games seem to run fine, except for the fact that I can't get any sound.
Both are looking for the oss relic, /dev/dsp which is not on my Fedora 13 system. I have all the alsa-oss packages installed that I can find in my repos, but still no go.
I imagine, without modification to the games, that I would still need some sort of device files (/dev/dsp) in place anyway, I posted this same thing a fedoraforum.org, so I will include my original post there.
NOTE: with UT, I get the same message "/dev/dsp: No such file or directory". For obvious reasons. I was hoping someone in the community has conquered this issue with oss emulation.
After finally getting my 3d graphics configured (thanks to leigh123linux!) I now am trying to tackle my sound issue. The end result is that I want to play equake (from loki installers). The game seems to run fine, except that I get no sound.
Now I know that OSS sound is going the way of the dinosaur in favor of Alsa, but I know people with older distributions have got OSS emulation working. I have all the alsa-oss packages installed that are available in my repos, but I still cannot get any sound in equake.
Also, I have tried the wrapper program, padsp, with no success.
Code: Select all
[tja@area51m ~]$ padsp equake
/dev/dsp: No such file or directory
Now I know why there is no /dev/dsp device file anymore, but my question is simply, what do I have to do to get OSS emulation working? As I mentioned, I have the alsa-oss packages installed.
Code: Select all
[tja@area51m ~]$ rpm -qa | grep alsa-oss
I am not sure if I am missing any, these are the only ones I found. However, even with these packages, I am sure I still need some sort of device file, /dev/dsp, to at least act as a dummy for the program.
Can anyone help me out here?
