Default Sound with Linux Compat

I cannot get sound to work with anything installed from the linux compatibility.


My sound works great with all native FreeBSD apps. I am using the native FreeBSD driver and am on Version 8.0 Stable. When i fire up quake4 all works well, except when choosing audio it says there is no device available.

Below are all the Linux port i have installed if it helps. Also UT2004 audio works great as long as i use the bundled openal library. Any help would be appreciated.

From memory, this was some problem more or less specific to the Quake engine and some Linux sound bug.
There is a sysctl to work around this bug, I think it was linux_mmap or something ... Try doing:
# sysctl -a | grep linux_mmap

And change the value that comes up (if any )

Hope this at least points you in the right direction.
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
