Description Jost Diederichs 2007-10-18 12:05:13 EDT
Description of problem:

there is no package containing 32 bit libs of the alsa-plugins-pulseaudio on the
x86_64 repo. 
In order to get wine sounds to work i forced an install of the
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i386 from the i386 repo and got wine apps to play sound. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
alsa-plugins-pulseaudio-1.0.14-5.fc8
Comment 1 Frederik Hertzum 2007-10-19 02:44:10 EDT
This is true for all 32 bit binaries on x86_64 installations using PulseAudio --
not just wine. This should be a simple matter of including the package in the
x86_64 repository.

Sound works fine (for all the apps I've tested with) if nothing else uses
PulseAudio.
Comment 2 Julian Sikorski 2007-10-31 15:28:14 EDT
Any updates on this? Since PA is going to be default for F8, it would be nice to
have this fixed.
Comment 3 Max Kanat-Alexander 2007-11-18 02:10:18 EST
Yes, I can confirm that this makes various 32-bit applications unable to play
sound on Fedora 8.

Making this a multilib package (or just shipping the 32-bit libs in the 64-bit
package) would be very helpful.

Comment 6 Eric Moret 2008-01-20 03:16:38 EST
Forgive my ignorance, but I don't know how to make an i386 package available to
the x86_64 repository. Not having a 64 bits box around does not help either. Any
hints as to what needs to happen?
Comment 7 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-01-20 10:47:06 EST
You need to ask someone in charge of the repositories to mark your package as
multilib, so that the i386 package is added to the x86_64 tree.

Not sure what the exact procedure for doing this is. Mark the bug as CVSNeeded:
?, perhaps.
Comment 8 Kevin Kofler 2008-01-20 10:48:23 EST
I'd suggest talking to rel-eng at fedoraproject.org.
Comment 9 Jason 2008-01-20 12:18:54 EST
Couldn't the 32-bit libs be made available for 64-bit systems in a similar way
to xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-libs-32bit-169.07-4.lvn8.x86_64.rpm in rpm.livna.org?

Afterall, I ran into a similar problem where I needed the 32-bit xorg driver
libs to play World of Warcraft in wine on 64-bit. I found this package in the
64-bit repository over at livna, which corrected my problem nicely.


Comment 10 Kevin Kofler 2008-01-20 13:54:23 EST
Uh, a *-32bit-*.x86_64.rpm is an ugly hack. That's what multilibs are for.
Comment 11 Eric Moret 2008-01-21 15:17:27 EST
Anybody knows how to make a multilibs package?
Comment 12 Michel Alexandre Salim 2008-01-21 16:19:35 EST
As Kevin said, e-mail rel-eng at fedoraproject.org? There is no special thing to
do as a packager to make a package multilib, it's just that the repository
managers have to add the package to their multilib list so the 32-bit version is
added to the 64-bit repositories (x86_64, ppc64)
Comment 13 Mark Slemko 2008-01-25 00:19:36 EST
some additional information related to this: 

an error message is:
The error message ERROR: ld.so: object 'libpulsedsp.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot
be preloaded: ignored.

On Fedora 8, 64 bit, the ALSA/pulseaudio sound initialization crashes when
loading some games (32 bit) under wine. Since there isn't any corresponding 32
bit library on a 64 bit install. i.e. libpulsedsp.so doesn't exist /usr/lib/

See bug 376721 - we would like to hear from the maintainers first.

Re-Assigning to Lennart
Comment 16 Bill Nottingham 2008-04-11 09:43:04 EDT
Adding alsa plugins to the multilib algorithm in mash, will be in 0.3.4.
