Surprise, surprise, it looks like audio output in Allegro 4.x, along with UT, Wolfenstein ET and probably a bunch of other stuff is completely hosed on recent Ubuntu versions (thanks, Canonical, for wrecking backwards compatibility so we could hear your stupid bongos everywhere and thanks, PulseAudio for gratuitously breaking ALSA compatibility). I’ve tried a few things to fix it, but it’s too close to contest time to be doing IT stuff.
Anyone out there have any suggestions for alternate distros that
- have NVidia ION drivers either in their repositories or don’t die horribly with the ones from NVidia’s website?
- don’t use PulseAudio (do NOT want), or have some kind of OSS emulation layer?
- are likely to work with NForce ethernet?
- are likely to work with RealTek 8192SE wifi?
