Description of problem:
In 8.0 tux racer seems to have sound not enabled. This was consensus by many,
many users in #redhat. eSound is running. Provided strace. I'm toot tired to
figure this one out now.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.make sure you pick tuxracer
Actual Results: game played with no sound
Expected Results: game should have sound as null did on same machine
strace output available at http://thumbingmyway.com/tuxtrace
Note: i think you guys linked libs wrong its looking for libSM.so.6 in the wrong
place its on the system in /usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so.6 which is not where tuxracer
Confirmed the same thing here.
Other SDL shipped apps play sound fine (e.g. Maelstrom) and tuxracer played
sound fine under Null. Under Red Hat 8.0, no sound in tuxracer at all and
nothing in the diagnostic log if run in debug mode.
Rebuilding from src.rpm seems to fix the problem. Perhaps the latest RH rebuild
was done on a system without the right devel packages?
rpmbuild --rebuild tuxracer-0.61-16.src.rpm
Problem is that tuxracer needs smpeg to have sounds, but smpeg was removed in
8.0 (license problem).
You should rebuild tuxracer with smpeg, it will work again.
