any chance to get the sound working


there are a lot of problems with sound so i guess what yours is.... no sound because of oss? (/dev/dsp missing) you need a wrapper.
if yo use alsa start with
aoss et
included in alsa-oss
if you use pulseaudio start with
padsp et
included in pulseaudio-utils

but maybe you have a different problem....

hm, i know 5 solutions

1st. use OSS as sound system

2nd. if you use a debian derived distro install the "oss-compat" package(requires a restart) and start et with: "./et.x86 +set com_soundMegs 64 +set s_khz 44"

3rd. use

4th. use a wrapper see pheonton's post

5th. give et direct access to your soundcard

echo 'et.x86 0 0 direct' > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
echo 'et.x86 0 0 disable' > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss

oss-compat worked for me on aptosid
