Description Jacob Kroon 2005-05-13 13:50:06 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050506 Fedora/1.7.7-4

Description of problem:
Running the game the first time on a boot (and perhaps the first after a login) works fine, but running it another time leaves the screen blank, and the program hangs. Stracing it reveals that it hangs about the time when it tries to read ESound-lock files in /tmp. Exporting SDL_AUDIODRIVER=dsp before running the application is a workaround that works. Perhaps Foobillard should be patched to use this audiodriver specifically. Or it could be that this affects all applications that is using SDL. _Or_ it could just be related to the other problems I'm having with using the Alsa/dmix plugin...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
foobillard-3.0a-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
(null)

Sorry I forgot to add CR's in the bug comments. Here it is again in a more
reader-friendly format:

I can't reproduce this bug anymore with alsa-lib-1.0.9rc4-1, it probably was
because of a dmix bug (which caused other applications like rhythmbox and
beep-media-player to also hang) which recently got fixed.

Works for me with a recent pre-FC4 snapshot too.
