I'm using a fresh install of Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit. I've read the Doom 3 guide here:
and installed Doom 3 successfully. It runs but the sound is horrible (very static-y). The terminal output is filled with these repeating lines:
snd_pcm_writei 4096 frames failed: Broken pipe preparing audio device for output snd_pcm_writei 4096 frames failed: Broken pipe preparing audio device for output
I've tried using the following:
doom3 +set s_driver oss +set s_numberOfSpeakers 2
but when I do there is no sound at all. This was in the terminal output:
------ OSS Sound Initialization ------ WARNING: failed to open sound device '/dev/dsp': No such file or directory WARNING: sound subsystem disabled
Can anyone explain what the 'snd_pcm_writei 4096 frames failed: Broken pipe' error means and how to fix it so the sound plays normally?
