    Phoronix: Wine Begins Work On Direct3D Shader Compiler

    It's time for another development snapshot of Wine, but this bi-weekly release does carry several features worth noting...

    I don't play many games in wine but the few I do play have sound working well: Steam and Portal 2 with steam, Warcraft3, skyrim and when I tested Path of Exile it was ok too.
    In fact I had not a single problem with wine and pulseaudio not working together in the last few years.

    I have ran MS Train Simulator on Wine - the sound worked perfectly with PA. Don't know why other programs would cause problems - maybe because their sound is not in WAV format?

    As for winealsa, currently for me does not work in combination with pulseaudio. I can kill pulseaudio, run wine just fine with sound, or have pulseaudio running and silent wine.
    Indeed. It does require manual compile, but in my experience, its well worth the effort.

    No, but I don't want to recompile the thing manually, as it could have problems whenever the issue is fixed and I decide to go back to RPM packages.

    On the other hand, I just updated my PulseAudio from 1.1 to 2.0 and so far I don't hear any popping sounds during music playback. So maybe that part of the puzzle is fixed. Meanwhile Wine didn't break, still works good as before.

And if I set it to use timers, Wine works fine but my audio is popping all the time - unless I set PulseAudio to use the trivial resampling method, in which case audio everywhere seems like it's running on a 16K bitrate... So in essence it's a "pick your poison" situation, until Wine incorporates a PA backend.

    is there a plan for a simple pulseaudio backend then, ( i know about the pulse driver from pre wine 1.4, it was determined that it wouldnt be incorperated into wine since they were planning on rewriting the audio stack. dont know much more about it after that.)
