Hi.

I've just installed Doom 3 and I can't get it to play any sound.

This is what I found in it's console output:

Quote:
------------------------------------
dlopen(libasound.so.2)
asoundlib version: 1.0.25
Alsa is available
------ Alsa Sound Initialization -----
ALSA lib conf.c:3314:(snd_config_hooks_call) Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_conf_pulse.so
ALSA lib pcm.c:2217:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
snd_pcm_open SND_PCM_STREAM_PLAYBACK 'default' failed: No such file or directory
dlclose
WARNING: sound subsystem disabled


It looks like it's trying to load a 64bit library while running in 32bit mode. Any hints for this?

Are you running a multilib system, with 32-bit libraries for compatibility?

Yes.
Code:
$ qfile libasound_module_conf_pulse.so
media-plugins/alsa-plugins (/usr/lib64/alsa-lib/libasound_module_conf_pulse.so)
app-emulation/emul-linux-x86-soundlibs (/usr/lib32/alsa-lib/libasound_module_conf_pulse.so)

dhewm3 might be better - is 64-bit-capable.

Edit: Here it is in the AUR.

Quote:
The Doom 3 GPL source code release does not include functionality enabling rendering of stencil shadows via the “depth fail” method, a functionality commonly known as "Carmack's Reverse".

Does that mean there won't be shadows in this version?

Of course there are still shadows. Where would the zombies hide?

Are you in one of the big DE's? (KDE, Gnome) They can impose their own "default" audio device on your system. During my last venture into KDE, I installed Doom3 and had similar problem. I didn't spend a lot of time with it, but the next time I started Doom3, I was in LXDE and it worked fine and It's still working fine. :)

@PaulBredbury; I didn't see dhewm3 in portage. Is there an overlay? Thanks.
