Hey guys..  Sorry to disturb you but I am running uplink 1.3 on linux with a PIII dual 1ghz w/sound blaster live 5.1 512mb of ram, etc...  When I go in the sound starts up going chachadcha, chachadcha----  sounds like static or somfin..  all my other sound works fine, just not this game..  I can hear just faintly a little of the buttons I press etc..  but it is incorporated with the static..  please help anyone if you can.. thanx

I posted/bumped a thread in bugs.  Just wanted to bump this one as well.  Hopefully one of the introverts :) will notice.

hey wes187 what flavour of linux r u using i'm using rh7.1 and uplink works fine on me. any way if your using rh7.* or any linux distros try going to your GNOME configuration tool and try fiddling with the sound settings there it probably might fix your problem.

I'm running 1.3.  My box is:
Originally Slackware 8.1
Linux 2.4.18
X 4.2.0 on a GeForce4 Ti 4600
No Gnome nor KDE, just E.
Tried both with and without ESD (0.2.28)

Haven't tried the dynamically linked uplink binary but I'll try that next.

I am running slack 8.1 but..   I FIXED IT!!!  what ya hvae to do is go to www.kernel.org and d/l the FULL latest kernel and update it and it fixed it!!  I think the old kernel only has probs with the SBLive5.1 drivers so I think any other sound cards should be fine  (:

Ditto on THE FIX!  (Thanks wes!)

I upgraded from kernel 2.4.18 to 2.4.19 and the problem disappeared.  Sound works great now (including that sweet intro music :)

Ooh, glad to hear you found a solution :)

I guess using Alsa isn't necessary then. At least not for SBLive users.

SB128 PCI users like me will propably need Alsa though... As far as I remember, there has always been some sound delay problems with the es1371 kernel driver. Also in kernel 2.4.19. Using Alsa instead though, will solve that problem :)
