sound issue fedora 16, No available audio device. [FIXED]

Code: Select all

ALSA lib dlmisc.c:236:(snd1_dlobj_cache_get) Cannot open shared library /usr/lib/alsa-lib/
Failed to open audio output device: "No available audio device"terminate called without an active exception
./defcon: line 46:  5470 Aborted                 (core dumped) $here/lib/defcon.bin.x86 "$@"

I had this issue (the game dumping core immediately after starting) and I would like to share a solution:

remove from lib and the game should run. It has sound, I'm not sure if there are any crippling effects from removing this file.

Thanks for this,
I just updated from Fedora 14 to 16 and just fired up Defcon, got that same error. I renamed the libvorbis file you mentioned and Defcon started up.

I wonder if there's a fix that doesn't involve losing the sound tho . .

you don't have sound with this? I didn't lose it after I did this.
