    Enemy territory No sound

    I have installed ET but the sound doesnt work.
    I tried to use the command that seems to work for a lot of people.
    echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

    Somehow it worked. And I could play with sound for a few days. But then suddenly the sound was gone again and the command doesn't work anymore.
    I use gnome..
    Someone has an idea what's the problem here?

    Notice that your command doesn't store anything.
    You have to redo it after every reboot.

    If it really doesn't do anything anymore (this should normally give you an error message), also try:
    echo "et.x86 0 0 disable" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss

    If that still doesn't work:
    *post the error message
    *what driver module are you using?

    Wink permanent fix

    here's a more permanent fix and explanation of the:
    echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

    what this does is temporarily enters "et.x86 0 0 direct" into oss.
    to make this more of a permanent entry, first:
    sudo gedit /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

    next type into oss:
    et.x86 direct

    now save and you should be set for life.

    i know it seems obvious, but people were asking how to make this more permanent, there you go.
