How do I get hardware sound in Linux to work through the game? The Hardware Sound option defaults to off every time I change it.


Some System Specs:

Pentium 4 ht @ 2.6GHz with 2 gigs of ram
kernel 2.6.23.16
openal 0.0.8-1

03:0b.0 Multimedia audio controller: Creative Labs SB Live! EMU10k1 (rev 07)
Subsystem: Creative Labs SBLive! 5.1 Model SB0100
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 128, IRQ 17
I/O ports at df80 [size=32]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 1

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G70 [GeForce 7800 GS] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Subsystem: Unknown device 19f1:1fa4
Flags: bus master, 66MHz, medium devsel, latency 248, IRQ 19
Memory at f5000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
Memory at c0000000 (32-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
Memory at f4000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
[virtual] Expansion ROM at f68e0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
Capabilities: [60] Power Management version 2
Capabilities: [44] AGP version 3.0

kernel config for sound:

# Sound

Hi sk2k7_ops, I'm afraid that option only works in Windows. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Cheers
