Hello, this will be my first post here
I just got kernel 2.6.10 running with alsa-1.0.8, and it works great, except for one thing, sound in Quake 3.
I installed the alsa-oss package to get oss-emulation(?) for quake, the sound did still not work so after a lot of searching i found that this would be the fix
Hey thanks dude! That solved my problem Quake 3 runs perfect now.
Another question (maybe a little off-topic) but how do i get these modules to load at startup?
They seeme to be needed to create /dev/dsp and so on
Btw yes, i am using a VIA integrated soundcard that uses the module snd_via82x
Anyway thank you for the help.
Sorry for bringing up this old thread, but i have recently bought a new motherboard (Gigabyte GA-7N400 Pro2), and the on-board soundcard uses the snd-intel8x0 module. I have exactly the same problem again as in my last posts in this thread, quake 3 arena freezes when i start a map.
The line "options snd-via82xx dxs_support=4" fixed my problem with the old motherboard, but it doesn't seem to work with this one (as it uses a different driver i assume) although i changed the line to "options snd-intel8x0 dxs_support=4".
Can the problem be solved with a similar line in modprobe.conf with this card?
I am using the alsa intel8x0 module for my toshiba laptop and the sound works well (in xmms, etc) and I can start quake 3 but it crashes when starting a map. As far as I can tell, there are no "options" for this module. Yes, I know q3 is getting old but I still want to play it! Magoot and I can't be the only ones out there with this problem
I have the via sound card listed in this post
there are no options in my modprobe.conf when i added the line above after getting sound to work by created a symlink to dev/dsp0 to /dev/dsp
the above line fixed nothing just caused sound to stop working in quake3 again.
very fustrated with this it shouldent be this hard
Hi, sorry for posting the same thing in another thread but i found this one just now and it better describes what's wrong with my Q3.
I'm using Mandriva 2005 LE with updated kernel and everything else up-to-date as well.
I'm using Realtek AC97 on-board sound card that comes with nForce2.
Any full-proof fix found yet?
I have read the form and multiple other forms and still have not found a solution. I know that quake 3 doesn't like alsa, but I also know that there is a fix.
I did this in the console
echo "quake3.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
and was surprised when I heard sound. I ran the server search and the game started but when it got to where it was going to make a sound it just froze. So I searched google and found this form. I then added
options snd-via82xx dxs_support=4
to modprobe.conf. It started and played... the first time. Maps changed and when it loaded it froze just like it did before I added options snd-via82xx dxs_support=4.
I then tried this
options snd-via82xx dxs_support=4
it worked but the sound was crackling and could not hear much.
I would appreciate any help.
