No sound in Mint 6 after installing wine

Postby pmmusale on Sun Apr 19, 2009 7:17 am

Hey Guys,

I installed Mint 6 on my Dell XPS 1530 2 days ago. After install, sound seems to be working fine. Yesterday I installed wine and tried to check audio options using "winecfg". After that I lost my sound and can only here sound just like that of old car engine.

I tried to check other posts here and nothing seems a good solution.

Here is output for "lspci"

Well well
Try the standard solution for ICH8

Got a solution from Linuxquestions.com.

Best guess: Wine is configured to use OSS, not ALSA for your sound output. OSS is simpler than ALSA and puts a lower load on your system, mainly because it doesn't use a software mixer, meaning that only one program can output sound at a time.

A simple workaround is to install the alsa-oss package, which will re-route all OSS sounds through ALSA, allowing the software mixer to work.

If not, then wine's sound output is not configured proper


Worked perfectly fine with me...Thanks!
