no sound on Mageia Linux 64 bits

Unread postby saletam » Sat Feb 16, 2013 6:10 pm

Hi all.

I just purchased Unity of Command on Steam store for Linux.
Running bin/uoc quite well but sound is disabled.

Code: Select all
ALSA lib dlmisc.c:254:(snd1_dlobj_cache_get) Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_pulse.so


Symlinking to the proper directory /usr/lib/alsa-lib/ didn't fix this issue (connection refused).

I run Mageia 3 64 bits with KDE.

I can play others Linux Steam games like Trine 2 or Amnesia with sound working fine.

I put this on our todo list, but it may take time to figure out the proper solution (ref: the ongoing saga with linux fonts).

You may try setting SDL_AUDIODRIVER to "dsp" to see if that helps. It's a long shot, but who knows...

Thanks for answering.

export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=dsp didn't help unfortunately, i don't get any error anymore, but no sound as well.

Hi,

I have version 1.04 from Gamers Gate and I have the same issue. No sound on OpenSUSE 12.3 32bit with KDE 4.10.

You may need to install the 32bit libraries as Pygame is 32bit and uses the 32bit SDL libraries.
If you google 32 bit libasound you should be able to find the appropriate package to install.

Code: Select all
 sudo yum install SDL.i686

Package SDL-1.2.15-9.fc19.i686 already installed and latest version
Nothing to do

So, what now? :)

Anyone? :/ The weekend is coming and I'd really like to play the game. Even some hints are fine. Something to try...

Try disabling the alsa config file that sets the Pulseaudio plugin as the default alsa device:

Code: Select all
mv /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.d/99-pulseaudio-default.conf /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf.d/99-pulseaudio-default.conf.bak


That way uoc will directly use the sound card device for the sound output.
It won't work if pulseaudio is currently using the card (ie if some other program is currently using pulseaudio to play some sound), and while uoc is running this will prevent pulseaudio from playing any sound as well.
