    No sound in Half Life in SuSE 9.2 w/WINE


    Hi,
    I'm trying to install Half Life with WINE on my SuSE box. At the beginning of the installation, it says it's performing tests, then asks me if i heard a sound, which i didn't Clicking 'No' tells me i need WAVE support in my sound.
    The only tutorial i've found on the subject is here:
    http://lhl.linuxgames.com/howto/half....5.html#AEN212

    But it refers to a Gnome, rather than KDE desktop, and i can't find anything similar to "sound monitor"

    When i run "lsmod" the closes to the "snd-***-*** stuff" coming up i get is:
    snd_ac97_codec 60676 1 snd_via82xx
    snd_page_alloc 11012 2 snd_via82xx,snd_pcm
    gameport 4736 1 snd_via82xx
    snd_mpu401_uart 7808 1 snd_via82xx
    snd_rawmidi 24992 1 snd_mpu401_uart

    which is about halfway down the text that comes up.

    Any ideas?

    Soundcard is an onboard jobbie, upgrade is on the cards but preferably not imminent...

    Are you using OSS, Alsa or something else?

    You should have ALSA and OSS if you're using SuSE 9.2. Try putting this into the "terminal".............

    Code:
    /dev/sndstat
    It will show the status of the sound card and let you configure the sound drive. It helps though to know what type of sound card you have. If you're sound card is not listed try ESS from the list. If that doesn't work tell me which sound card you have and I'll find the driver for it.

    If you are using KDE try to do like that:

    Code:
    artsdsp -m wine hl2.exe
