So I finally got my brand new and shiny AMD64 Athlon64 processor,
and installed an x86-64 OS on my computer: Fedora Core 4. I previously
had a 32-bit (i386) installation of it, and I wanted to experiment with
a 64-bit system. I did not wanted to migrate my UT2004 installation,
since I figured I would require to re-install the program to get the
needed 64-bit libraries (libSDL.so.0, mainly).... Anyway, I'm a seasoned
Linux user, but never faced something like this. I'm running the 32-bit
version of UT2004 on my x86-64 Fedora installation. I have two audio
cards configured: The onboard sound card (VIA 8237) and my addon old and
trusty Sound Blaster Live! Value card. The Live! is set to be the
primary card, I usually change the default Fedora configuration in
modprobe.conf to a more ALSA-project documentation style (seems cleaner
to me). Anyway, the actual problem is that for some obscure reason,
UT2004 will only playback sound on the secondary card!! I don't know why
it is doing this, I figure it has something to do with its configuration
somewhere in ~/.ut2004, problem is I don't know where to look for that.
Needless to say that this problem did not show under 32-bit Fedora. Also
the sound is played back way too fast, though the animation is normal.
If I was not to re-install the game, is there a way to run the 64-bit
version of the game? I mean, I already have the ut2004-bin-linux-amd64
and ucc-bin-linux-amd64 binaries...
