Description Wolfgang Pirker 2012-04-12 15:21:00 EDT
Description of problem:
In a game which uses OpenAL, I don't have sound with version 1.14-1, but the sound works with openal-soft 1.13-1. I tested two games which use OpenAL: Maniadrive and Regnum Online.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): openAL-soft 1.14-1

Steps to Reproduce:
1. OpenAL version 1.14-1
2. start a application which uses OpenAL for sound
3. probably the application is without sound

If this can't be reproduced like that, it's maybe also required to use OSSv4 instead of Alsa+Pulseaudio
Expected results:
no sound output
Comment 1 Hans de Goede 2012-04-13 09:18:17 EDT
I just tested maniadrive on my pulseaudio -> alsa setup and it works fine. So I indeed think this is an ossv4 specific problem. And we don't support ossv4 with Fedora, we don't even ship it in our repositories!

So I'm afraid that you are on your own here. You can try to force openal to use oss rather then to auto-detect, see /etc/openal/alsoft.conf, if that does not help please contact openal-soft upstream directly.
Comment 2 Wolfgang Pirker 2012-04-13 11:16:10 EDT
ok thank you. 

I modified the file /etc/openal/alsasoft.conf and now it works fine. Adding drivers=oss to this file fixed the issue for me.
