    By the way, does 1.0 fix the SUPER FUCKING TRIPLE SONIC BOOM YOU WIN! bug?
    after reading the vitriol and venom espoused in your blog posting, my only advice to you is to go back to windows, junior. and stay there. then perhaps you won't have an aneurysm from the high blood pressure.

      How does this fix problems with ancient id Games? Their source ports? IOQuake? Etc... ?

        The thing stopping me from using PulseAudio was compatibility of Wine and PA.

        I can see there are some recent updates for Wine:
        http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10495
        http://art.ified.ca/?page_id=40

        Do you guys have more information about this? Is Wine now working fine when using PA?

          Wine has always been working perfectly with PA for me, because PA is a layer on top of ALSA and OSS, and Wine doesn't need PA to talk to it.

          The only single problem with PA has been the fact that some not-so-strict-but-working-for-OSS-and-ALSA-drivers for sound cards, were not so fond of listening to PA.

          PA has been working with my hardware forever. On certain cards it's just a crackling nightmare.

          Live with PA or dump it.

            I always found Wine to work best when set to use ESD output, since pulseaudio emulates ESD if the appropriate pulse module is loaded.

            The bug report you link to indicates it will be a while until the recent changes to winepulse make it into the main git branch (and a release).

            Have you tried to use pulseaudio and Wine >= 1.3.26 ? The ALSA underrun error is fixed there. Of course, you need to configure programs that use alsa libs (libasound) to output to pulseaudio.

              It brings people back to the windows desktop where those games still work and Doom 3 has EAX support.

              my only advice to you is to go back to windows, junior

                Sadly many windows games stopped working after some service craps updates. While it's about PA I don't care at all about winblows, so go back to your blog, please.

                  Totaly agreeing with Kraftman, here.

                  A lot of games stopped working in Windows and, kinda funny, started working on Linux through Wine.

                  Now you can argue that there are updates and 3rd party 'cracked' executable fixes and wrappers, but so are the source ports for older Linux games.

                  Even further back than win32 and we end up with DOSBox, heh...

                  While I (once again... *sigh*) dual boot with Windows, there are some reasons that require me to reboot back into Linux.

                  Dual booting realy pisses me off. I just want my KDE desktop, my Yakuake terminal, my PIM, Rekonq browser and just use my computer to the fullest. It's just that these proprietary islands keep forcing me to go back to an inferior computer experience >.<

                        Medieval: Total War is sadly no longer very playable on windows, particularly when using either Win764 or Nvidia cards.

                          You can try different fglrx versions, 11.4 is known to behave well in most cases. You can also try the most recent one from AMD website.
                          Then you may find a version which does not 'crap' other stuff, and works with games.
                          By the way, fglrx is known not to like Wine so even if you get your websites working with it, you may still have problems.
                          Or get an nvidia graphics card.

                            @NomadDemon: I run AOE2 in a WinXP Virtualbox install with r600g from git on my Debian host (lowly RadeonHD 4550 does the job). The only thing I would ever boot to Windows for was to run AOE2, but now there's no need since it works just fine in VB.

                              You are not helping the problems with linux audio and you are making really bad assumptions about me. But please, do continue. It amuses me.
