Whenever I try to run a Windows game under Wine I get an error that says I don't have a proper sound driver.

I checked the Wine config and there was only an OSS option that I think wouldn't be useful in getting the sound working. I think I have to use ALSA instead but I don't know how to add ALSA support to Wine.

I use:

  • Ubuntu (Meerkat) 10.10
  • Wine 1.2

Any ideas?

Install alsa-oss packages then do

aoss wine */Pathtothegame/thegame.exe*
