I've tried all I could to have sound in ut2003 and ut2004, but nothing.
I installed these games on my laptop, an AMD64 TL60 2GHz double-core.
This laptop has an embedded soundcard, which works ok in ALSA; I bought an
external USB, that works ok too. I get sound in mplayer, xmms, wine, etc.
The USB card is defined as default in my ~/.asoundrc
After I installed ut2004, I got sound on the embedded card; I wanted it on
the USB one, so I created a ~/.openalrc with these lines:
# Contains user settings for OpenAL
# Goes in ~/.openalrc
# Which backend? Tried in order of appearance
(define devices '(alsa sdl null))
(define speaker-num 2)
(define alsa-out-device "default")
After that ut2004 refused to start, it bombed out with a SIGSEGV.
I recompiled libopenal 0.0.7; I then symlinked libopenal.so.0.0.0 to
openal.so in /usr/local/games/ut2004/System, and the game starts now, but
with no sound at all, on neither of the soundcards.
I tried with openal 0.0.8, but got the same result.
The only lines I get in ~/.ut2004/UT2004.log are
Log: ALAudio: Using ALC_EXT_capture to record audio.
Exit: OpenAL Audio subsystem shut down.
