I just recently updated my linux distro. I also reinstalled ArmyOps250. However, I am getting no sound. When i run armyops in terminal i get the following error.

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

I checked and appearently the new alsa has no /dev/dsp file. I am wondering if anyone knows what the work around is for this?

Alsa-utils package has good programs to configure sound and save settings: alsaconf and alsamixer.

Then in /etc/modules.conf I have (I have 2 soundcards)

alias /dev/midi snd-seq-oss
alias /dev/mixer snd-mixer-oss

# card1
alias snd-card-0 snd-ice1712
alias sound-slot-0 snd-ice1712
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss
options snd-ice1712 index=0
alias /dev/dsp snd-pcm-oss

# card2
alias snd-card-1 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-1 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-service-1-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-1-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-1-12 snd-pcm-oss
options snd-hda-intel index=1
alias /dev/dsp1 snd-pcm-oss

Then compile openal (which the game uses for sound) and copy the installed library to armyops/System, replacing the existing

#cd armyops/System
#cp /usr/lib/

Then make an ~/.openalrc.

#vi ~/.openalrc
  (define devices '(alsa))
  (define speaker-num 2)
  (define alsa-out-device "default")
  (define alsa-in-device "default")

You can tweak the out/in device if you have multiple soundcards (hw:0,1 or hw:0,2). I have 2 cards and I can play music from the other and play with headphones with the other Smile

Now you should also have a /etc/init.d/alsasound and you can define runlevels for it.

This works for me but you might have it different Rolling Eyes

Thank you for your reply......

great tutorial and works very well.

I have Ubuntu Feisty..... works as advertized and I will try it with wolfenstein as well. I suspect that it will be the same.

Again thank you....
