Help For Linux

Lately, the Linux sound subsystem has been "enhanced" into a state of disrepair. Under FC4, after running the Windows version, morse.exe (under Wine, of course), the Linux version's sound becomes garbled. I suspect the same behaviour may occur in other circumstances, as well.

For me, a workaround (under bash) is to:

     export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa

into the environment. Perhaps some Gnome or KDE guru will describe how to make the equivalent voodoo in that context.
