I've had a problem for a week already, and ive tried #winehq but they
told me to suscribe to winedevel list so here i am. The problem is with
Ive been able to make counter-strike (half-life game mod) run perfectly
on my system, i have network support, opengl support and it all works
perfectly ...still, i have no sound.
(forgot to say that no sound in ANY applications i run besides this game)
I have no previous windows installation, so i grabbed a system.ini file
from a working windows 98 system.
I also copied all mci* files from a working Windows installation in
order to fix my problem but it seems it did not work.
I have ALSA installed in a 2.4 kernel (soon 2.4.12). The errors the game
prompts me are all about not being able to use the MCI system for
playback ( i believe that means the mci wave driver for playing wav
Another weird thing is that THERE IS some sound while browsing the game
menus (whenever i click in any menu option ) once i accept the error
messages. Still, when the real thing starts its all muted.
A strange thing i noticed is that my ~/.wine/config file didnt have any
mci files in any of its config tags, but other people did, so i added
them. using the native and builting options:
"mcicda.drv" = "builtin, native"
"mciseq.drv" = "builtin, native"
"mciwave.drv" = "builtin, native"
"mciavi.drv" = "native, builtin"
"mcianim.drv" = "native, builtin"
Yes, in my override tag.
So, im no wine expert at all, but it seems Wine isnt using *at all* my
windows 98 mci drivers located in wines c:\windows\system directory.
Please, id rather need instant help, the linux gamers require gamming
Btw, ive downloaded the last source targz file from your site, and i was
unable to make Winsock support work at all, ive heard of another guy
that had the same problem, so i made him download the previous one and
worked as it did for me too. Please check that out.
