Subject: [hcflinux] Problems with Quake III Arena

Hi all,

Difficult one this as Loki no longer exists! I blew the dust of my Q3A over
the weekend and got it up and running on my Linux box. I've got my HSF-based
sound card working just fine under normal conditions, but when I play Q3A,
as the game starts the sound card makes some random popping noise and then
never runs. The Q3A console reports "system sound is muted" for some reason.
I see on the web page that there was feature regarding "direct access
interface" and I was wondering if that was a problem like that at all
considering XMMS runs just fine, but Q3A doesn't?

If you have any suggestions to help me, that would be great,
