I don't know if it's a problem with me or a problem with client code somewhere but I seem to have lost my EL sound ability and have this message when I first log in:
[13:25:42] alcOpenDevice(): Error initializing sound: ALC_NO_ERROR
In my Options Audio tab, the box for Sound Device is empty, as it has been forever. I use Alsa. Adding "Alsa" doesn't help.
I have sound for everything else outside of EL. An odd quirk to this is that there is one sound I've noticed that attempts to come through in EL, but sounds choked and strangled and is abbreviated, and that is the "eek" sound, which is ow01.ogg. I know precisely which one because I use it as a sound alert for certain pm's. When I play it alone outside of the EL client, it works fine.
Any suggestions? I have this problem in my normal client and in bluap's new scaling testing client. (I was hoping his would fix this but it didn't.)
