im running slackware 10.0 with my soundblaster extigy using custom drivers which work fine for all sound apps other than games. i can hear music and movies but as soon as i open UT2K4 or Americas Army the console gives me this message
open /dev/[sound/]dsp: Device or resource busy
then this part comes up after i close the game out but i think it's just a display message telling me that i have something in my config that cant be read
Xlib: extension "Xig-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0"
but i just want to know why i get no sound in the game.
also i installed the sound drivers after installing the games. and the sound worked in the games for a short time after i installed the drivers
