Angry WolfET or Quake Wars

Hey all. It has been quite some time, but I have an issue that I just can't seem to nail down. Whenever running Enemy Territory(either version), it runs with no sound. I look in the log and find this:

------- sound initialization -------
/dev/dsp: No such file or directory
Could not open /dev/dsp
------------------------------------

Naturally, I try the ls command:

"ls: cannot access /dev/dsp: No such file or directory"


I used to be extremely well with linux, but haven't used it since Fedora Core 6. I am now using Fedora 14.
Thanks for the help. It is probably something really easy to fix, but I can't figure it

No go. The most useful link happens to never work: the et sdl audio link. I tried everything else on the page and nothing. Always with the same result: no such file or directory. Everything else with sound works just fine

Re: WolfET or Quake Wars

Lucky for you, I got the file still in my backups, it's attached. The et-sdl-sound.gz is the file they are linking to, the other 2 are from my setup when I had ET installed.

The rest is for you to solve.

P.S. Using this solution never caused any issues with PB.

Re: WolfET or Quake Wars

I am gonna go out on a limb. Try, killall -9 pulseaudio
Once you are done playing fire it back up or reboot to get the sound back to the way it was.

Since it is a 32bit game and assuming you are on 64bits maybe grab alsa-lib.i686 alsa-oss.i686 etc etc. These are just guess's but as a Linux gamer myself I do know that pulseaudio is still the worse thing to ever happen to desktop Linux.

Wow, I must have been slow, disregard my post.

Re: WolfET or Quake Wars

Thanks! After I got the file(finally), it was pretty simple.

gunzip et-sdl-sound.gz
chmod a+x et-sdl-sound
su -
chown root. et-sdl-sound
mv et-sdl-sound /usr/local/games/enemy-territory


and change /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/et

#!/bin/sh
# Needed to make symlinks/shortcuts work.
# the binaries must run with correct working directory
cd "/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/"
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:.
./et-sdl-sound "$@"


Thanks for your help in getting the file!

Now my only issue is getting kicked by PB. Even after manually updating.

Usually happens if it can't verify and update when you connect. Can't remember the solution for that - been long time. Just make sure you run the PB update in game directory to start with and check the PB log for the reason you were kicked. Good luck.
