Unreal Tournament 2003 sound problems


When I try to play UT2003 in linux I get either laggy sound (sound delay of a few seconds, e.g. when you jump you hear the "uh" a few seconds later) or no sound at all (I think this is when I already have started UT2003 once in the session).
Please help me fix it! Headshots ain't fun without sound...

I'm using slackware 9 with an AC'97 onboard sound chip.

Thanks for any help!

Excellent day for drinking heavily. Spike office water cooler.

mark@mercure:~$ lsof /dev/dsp
As you see it doesn't return anything.

AC'97 is software codec standard. Look at your motherboard or sound card and find the chip. Also are you using ALSA or OSS. You may have to install SDL and run /sbin/ldconfig -v . If you are using artsd or esd. Turn them off. Also you may need to set the output sound device in user.ini file. I don't know if you can set sound buffers for UT2003.

Headshots ain't fun without sound...
It isn't. Even with out sound. I still hear it.

BTW, you don't have to include -v (verbose) when you run /sbin/ldconfig.
