Question No Sound In UT2004


Hi, I recently installed ut2004 on my machine. After the install had completed I ran the game as a user just to test it. It started up and ran without any errors except for no sound. When I type the command "ut2004" in the terminal I get an error saying:


open /dev/[sound/]dsp: Resource temporarily unavailable
Xlib: extension "XiG-SUNDRY-NONSTANDARD" missing on display ":0.0".


I don't know if the second line will cause problems because I have not seen any glitches or errors reffering to what it says. I also have the latest nvidia drivers.


I am currently running:

AMD AthlonXP 3000+
512MB of memory
NVidia GeForce4 (generic)
WDC 7200RPM 100GB HD
Red Hat 9 ----> 2.4.20-8

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Try killing artsd before you start UT2004:

killall -9 artsd

Nope, didn't work. I have heard about how the OpenAL in ut2004 uses the ALSA driver, which I have already installed. Im clueless at this point. Anyone else have the same problem?

Help Would Be Nice!

Well, alsa usually starts muted. If you havn't unmuted it that may be the problem. You need to have installed the alsa-utils package for this, then type alsamixer in a term and see if it is unmuted or not. If alsamixer throws an error it usually means alsa is not setup properly or the sound card is not loaded. Try those and report back with any new info, thnx.

Control Center->Sound & Multimedia->Sound System, then disable the sound system, and it works.

create a file ~/.openalrc
the contents of which should be:
Code:
# Use ALSA (also valid: sdl, native)
(define devices '(alsa))

# Four speaker surround with ALSA
(define speaker-num 2)
# Change hw:#,# if you have two snd cards
(define alsa-out-device "hw:0,0")
(define alsa-in-device "hw:0,0")
I also turned the autosuspend time for artsd down to 30 seconds. (You can do this in the Control Center under Sound and Multimedia -> Sound System.)
Now, when I click on the UT icon (which simply calls "ut2004", it waits 30 seconds for arts to give up its lock on the sound card, then runs perfectly with sound.

The one downside to this is that UT locks /dev/[sound/]dsp, so you can't play music in-game. Since the game already has good music, I don't much mind it.

Did you apply a patch?

I tried patching my ut2004 installation, and openal.so got overwritten. All I had to do was make a simlink from my system's libopenal.so to the ut2004/System directory as openal.so and it worked.

Never had to touch artsd...

personally I have to start ut2004 using aoss ut2004 instead of just ut2004 as a command. This requires having alsa-oss installed. So far none of the other solutions that I have seen helped though that one also worked on other programs that have sound issues

also if you want to simplify your life a little bit in your home directory in the .bashrc file add the following line:
alias ut2004="aoss ut2004" and then after you restart/open a new shell when you type ut2004 it will automatically do aoss ut2004 instead and that way you don't have to remember it.
