    Sound doesn't work in Enemy Territory


    Hey, I run Debian (sarge) with a 2.6.8 kernel and Enemy Territory works perfect execpt for the sound. When it loads up I get this:

    ------- sound initialization -------
    ------------------------------------
    ----- Sound Info -----
    sound system is muted
    1 stereo
    32768 samples
    16 samplebits
    1 submission_chunk
    48000 speed
    0x48730000 dma buffer
    No background file.
    ----------------------

    and theres no sound. Sound works for everything else, just not ET. Does anyone know how i could fix this?

    try run this as root:
    Code:
    echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

    Run as normal user

    Hello,

    This thread has been really useful for me. But there is still one problem. I have to run that command as root every time I want to play ET. That's as good as running as root. Please suggest me a solution so that I can play ET + sound with a single icon-click.

    I'm kinda panicy right now. After doing the above commands in Ubuntu[Dapper Drake], I no longer can become su. I tried restarting a couple times. I can't become su. It just says "Authentication Failed." I'm entering valid password and caps aren't on.

    Is there any relation or is this some freak zombie system?

    you should post a new topic about it, but i'll answer because i'm nice
    in ubuntu you don't use su, you use sudo, like so:
    Code:
    sudo command
    then enter your own password.
    Here's why Linux is easier than Windows:
    Package Managers! Apt-Get and Portage (among others) allow users to install programs MUCH easier than Windows can.
    Hardware Drivers. In SuSE, ALL the hardware is detected and installed automatically! How is this harder than Windows' constant disc changing and rebooting?

    I used to be able to use SU. Sorry, I'm used to Fedora.
