    Angry How to emulate OSS with ALSA?


    Hi, dudes! I've got a huge problem and exepect you help me to solve it So, I've installed a game recently and there's no sound. I looked for some information and found that the problem is that the game needs OSS but I have only ALSA. They adviced me to use oss-wrapper - alsa-oss. I tried to run # aoss ./gorky18. Sound hadn't appeared. Now I don't know what to do. In the terminal it writes:
    ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libaoss.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
    SNDCTL_DSP_GETFMTS: Inappropriate ioctl for device
    SoundInit: Mix Error: Couldn't get audio format list.
    What to do?

    It looks like your game is rather old. I can also see you're using a 64bits distro. Bumping on the same problem, I went back to a 32bit setup to get all those "32bit only" softwares running... Maybe you should check wether aoss is installed or not, using your favorite package manager...
