Description simon canning 2007-01-07 22:26:00 UTC
Description of problem:

Window effect sounds are delayed and out of sync.  Soundcard test page does have
a windows effect sound, but actual test sound doesn't work!  An error is
outputted (see attached .log)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

100% if Return To Castle Wolfenstein, Enemy Territory!

Steps to Reproduce:
1.su -
2.modprobe snd_pcm_oss
Actual results:

game works 50/50 with audio, audio is always lost for good whatever after

Expected results:

alsa should work with OSS in emulation, so I guess I expect the desired result
is to be able to launch any program that uses a different sound system/element
and not loose audio again!

Sorry, Reproduction list wrong, try this

1.su -
2.modprobe snd_pcm_oss
3.echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

note, enemy territory does not get sound unless i use this.  sound is also
bloody aweful regardless of in-game settings...  very crackly and "rusty"!
