No sound on 64 bit Linux solution

Post by Khym Chanur » March 21st, 2014, 11:17 pm

I wasn't getting any sound from book II on my 64 bit Fedora installation. Trying the solution listed here, using the command "padsp", didn't work, but gave this error:

Code: Select all

ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib64/pulseaudio/libpulsedsp.so' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored.
Turns out that padsp has a bug that it only works with 64 bit executables, but Eschalon is 32 bit. So, the solution was to do this instead:

Code: Select all

LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/pulseaudio/libpulsedsp.so ./eschalon_book_2
That basically exactly what padsp does, but using the 32 bit library instead of the 64 bit library.

Thanks for the hint! Very useful. Just created my own startup script...
