Solution for some possible sound problems

Post by Alf » February 18th, 2014, 12:02 pm

Some people may encounter some sound problems when launching the game. If you cannot hear any sound, just check by launching the game on the command line. If you obtain this error message:
ALSA lib conf.c:3314:(snd_config_hooks_call) Cannot open shared library
The solution is simple: you have to install the corresponding library (libasound2-plugins on Debian, thus probably also on Ubuntu).

Note that you may encounter this problem although you know that this library is installed, which was my case... The point is that the game has ben compiled for 32bit machines, so you need the 32bit library. So in that case, you have to install the 32bit version, that is under Debian/Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install libasound2-plugins:i386
and your sound will be back :P

But before this, you usually have to also run thins (if you did not this already):

Code: Select all

dpkg --add-architecture i386
apt-get update
Of course as root or through sudo...
