    Question Vegastrike sound issue.

    Alright, so I recently got Vegastrike working after some toils with XTERM not loading.

    Now I purposefully changed the resolution too high so that the game would error out so that I could show you the sound bug.

    I do know that if I lower my resolution it will function, but I get no sound, no music, not even system beeps.

    I believe it's tied to one line of code, but being a total newb in linux I haven't figured out what I need to do to fix it.

    See for license details.

    Bolded part above isn't finding sound. But in Ubuntu desktop and other games I've downloaded I do have sound, full use of it.

    I found somewhere that it was saying I had the wrong sound card when I have a realtek on my motherboard and it asked me to edit a file in the root directory, which I did, however it doesn't seem to help the issue.

    I'm totally stumped as to what the hell I need to do to get sound. Game looks amazing, but with no sound it's sorta worthless right at the moment.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Nobody? Not one of you has any idea what the issue is with my sound card?

    Hi there. I know this thread is very old and I may not be the best person to help you but here goes.

    Vegastrike seems to be looking for your sound device in the wrong dir. (see below.) I suspect the line should read something like open /dev/snd/ .

    Try looking at the config files for Vegastrike and find a line that says /dev/[sound/] or similiar and change that to /dev/snd.

    I just started wrestling with my own Vegastrike sound problems so would appreciate it of you let me know if you've found a solution.

    Good hunting.

    try installing alsa-oss
    sudo apt-get install alsa-oss
    then run vegastrike like this:
    aoss vegastrike
