Sound Issue


Hey again,

weird problems with sound. Everything is working in KDE, but when I start up Quake3 (linux edition), everything works except sound. Here is the sound clip from the console:

------- sound initialization -------
/dev/dsp: Broken pipe
Could not toggle.


thanks for any help!

I guess that this is due to artsd (the sound server used by KDE). So if you're running Quake from KDE it cannot use /dev/dsp because it's used by artsd. You can disable the sound server from Control Panel to see if it works.

Anyone have any other ideas? Or could possibly explain what broken pipe means?

After hours of searching, here's what I put together for the solution:

Error recieved:

------- sound initialization -------
/dev/dsp: Broken pipe
Could not toggle.

The issue is to use the OSS emulation correctly:

Kill any arts processes running

at command prompt:
echo "quake3.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

Run Quake3 as root

you could most likely add your user to the "audio" user group and avoid having to be root
