Sound in the Unreal games
 
Hi All,

I'm running lenny amd64 and for the past couple weeks (that I noticed) I have
no sound in the unreal games (ut-goty, ut2003 and ut2004). I haven't changed
anything that I am aware of.

I see this in ~/.xsession-errors but I don't know what it means.

"open /dev/[sound/]dsp: No such file or directory"

Any help appreciated.

Please CC me since I'm not subscribed to the list.

Try modprobe snd_pcm_oss and snd_mixer_oss.

That is supposed to be cured by installing the oss-compat package.
However, it may be necessary to put the oss modules into /etc/modules
manually, see http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=500460.

I did add the oss modules to /etc/modules so my sound is working as expected.
I hope a solution can be found so alsa-base works with oss-compat.
