Red face NForce2 Sound issue


Hi,

Im running Suse 9.1, Kernel 2.6.x and I wanna figure out how to have Quake3 use
a soundmixer program so that I can listen to mp3s while playing...
Theres also another problem Id like to get rid of... I cant get my 4.1 speakers working, and I tried everything... Installing the Alsa driver and get it set up the right way, messing around with KaMix... I never get every single one of them working in the same time...

Any idea?

Thank you guys

You probably need a soundserver. You could try using aRts, the soundserver used by the KDE desktop. You can get Quake to play through aRts by starting Quake like this:

artsdsp <command>

where <command> is whatever command you enter to run Quake 3.

Thanks for the reply,
I tried the following

jean@linux:~> artsdsp /usr/local/bin/quake3
artsdsp works only for binaries

Whats wrong with that? quake3 is supposed to be a binary isnt it?....

Oh I checked it out and its working fine with other programs such as gmplayer...
Im gonna try to find the real "q3" binary !

I guess /usr/local/bin/quake3 must be a shell script then. You're right, there will be a binary in there somewhere. If it's called from a shell script then you could always hack the script to put the artsdsp command in there in the right place.
