ALSA Drivers not working in games

Tuxracer:

%%% tuxracer warning: Warning: Couldn't set 11025 Hz 8-bit audio
  Reason: No available audio device

Frozen-bubble:

Warning: can't initialize sound (reason: No available audio device).
Ready.

Armagetron sound just doesn't work
XMMS sound works fine.

I have a SBLive PCI card, and I'm using snd-emu10k1 driver.
I'm using a custom 2.6.3 kernel, not the arch linux supplied.
I downloaded the drivers from the alsa website, the 1.0.3 ones
Sound used to work with the arch kernel, and 1.0.2c!  I don't see why it doesn't work now!  Any suggestions?

Re: ALSA Drivers not working in games

- any reason why not using the alsa arch-pkgs?

- do you load snd-pcm-oss for oss-emulation for games that often only work with oss?

- lsmod?

Re: ALSA Drivers not working in games

Woah!  Your my hero  lol snd-pcm-oss worked great!! Thanks!  Also:  I don't use arch pkgs for kernel and alsa becase i need a customized kernel for my ati card, and arch alsa only works for arch kernel.  Thanks!  That's just what I needed!

Re: ALSA Drivers not working in games

Ahh  :x Now it only works for root?  Any ideas?  I get the same errors for users but root works fine!  Weird!

Re: ALSA Drivers not working in games

You're missing the ^sound line in /etc/devfsd.conf (but you have the ^snd one).  That's explained in the alsa howto.

Re: ALSA Drivers not working in games

Where can I find a generic DEVFS tutorial?  I'm totally clueless of what it is, why it's good, and hwo to use it!

that's a good question, on what i dont have a really good answer: there exist quite no documents about devfs (and it is become slowly obsolete with the new comming udev) on the internet (afaik), so you have to learn by looking at the config file and speaking with people that made already some experience with it (there is also no man devfs.conf ... that's an example, how not to document your project :-) )
