need some help with DOSEMU sound settings

Postby ginahoy » Sat Oct 28, 2017 3:39 pm

I use dosemu to run an old DOS accounting program. The only problem is there's no sound. The program is supposed to 'beep' the system speaker as confirmation for various operations. I reviewed the dosemu docs but I'm new to Linux (especially low-level settings such as these), so I could use some help configuring dosemu to produce sound.

Here is the Speaker and sound section from dosemu.conf file (by convention, the default settings are commented out):

Code: Select all

## Speaker and sound settings
# speaker: default: "emulated", or "native" (console only) or "" (off)
# $_speaker = "emulated"
# sound support on/off; use (2) for newer experimental sound code
# $_sound = (on)
# (emulated!) Sound Blaster base i/o port, default: (0x220)
# $_sb_base = (0x220)
# Sound Blaster IRQ setting, default: (5)
# $_sb_irq = (5)
# Sound Blaster 8 bit DMA setting, default: (1)
# $_sb_dma = (1)
# Sound Blaster 16 bit DMA setting, default: (5)
# $_sb_hdma = (5)
# Sound device, default: "/dev/dsp"
# $_sb_dsp = "/dev/dsp"
# Sound mixer device, default: ""; use "/dev/mixer" if you allow that dosemu
# changes the volume
# $_sb_mixer = ""
# Midi base i/o port
# $_mpu_base = (0x330)
# The following options are driver-specific and it is not necessary to alter
# the default values in most cases. Read sound-usage.txt for more.
# Defaults: min_frags: 4, max_frags: 0x20, stalled_frags: 2, do_post: off,
# min_extra_frags: 2, dac_freq: 6000.
# $_oss_min_frags = (4)
# $_oss_max_frags = (0x20)
# $_oss_stalled_frags = (2)
# $_oss_do_post = (off)
# $_oss_min_extra_frags = (2)
# $_oss_dac_freq = (6000)

These docs may be helpful.

If no one here is familiar with dosemu sound settings, is there another forum where I might find help?
