Hi Tyra, Thanks for keep psx alive on arch, I have a better solution for pulseaudio problem on psx, Install JACK2 and cadence then in cadence options (Jack bridges) Select: ALSA -> Pulseaudio ->JACK(plugin) or ALSA -> JACK (plugin) in the second one you cant hear anything but in the first one you can use psx at the same time as pulseaudio and you can use pavucontrol to ajust volumen on psx :), sorry for my english.

You can somehow forget what I said, because I found a very dirty workaround to make it work without killing Pulseaudio. You actually need the handle of your sound device and add it as "Device=[handle]" under the [Sound] section of ~/.pSX/psx.ini. One way to get it is to run pSX as root (without any other program using the sound card), go to Configuration->Sound and select the right plughw device. Close pSX and find the device handle in /root/.pSX/psx.ini. I don't know if there's another way to get that handle without going root.
Anyway, once the configuration is done, you can finally run pSX as normal user, with the big inconvenient that pSX needs total control over the sound card, like a good ol' OSS program, so no other program shall use the sound card at the same time.

Just noticed it depends on lib32-alsa-plugins, else it will display the following error:

ALSA lib dlmisc.c:236:(snd1_dlobj_cache_get) Cannot open shared library /usr/lib32/alsa-lib/

@trya yes, I am! Thank you!

trya commented on 2012-11-20 16:12

@rberaldo: I suppose you run a 64-bit system, don't you? As a result, you need lib32-pangox-compat.

Dependencies updated.

When trying to launch, I get

$ pSX
/usr/lib/pSX/pSX: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I've tried rebuilding pSX but that hasn't worked. I have pangox-compat installed, by the way.

The only part of pSX that doesn't work for me is the Playstation 2 mode.
$ pSX -2
=== macroblock address inc
=== vlc macroblock type i
=== vlc macroblock type p
=== vlc macroblock type b
=== vlc macroblock type d
=== vlc motion code
=== vlc dmvector
=== coded block pattern
=== size luminance
=== size chrominance
=== vlc dct coeff 0
=== vlc dct coeff 1
/usr/bin/pSX: line 31: 13871 Segmentation fault $psx_libdir/pSX "$@"
It works fine otherwise in regular playstation mode.

@delcypher: that's because lib32-gtkglext is in the AUR (

delcypher commented on 2012-05-20 09:31

This seems broken. The there is no "lib32-gtkglext" package in the multilib repo.

Works now. Removed nouveau and installed the nvidia drivers.

Here's my ouput of strace pSX: Already tried killing pulseaudio (followed cupantae's steps) and installing lib32-nouveau-dri, and pSX is still segfaulting.

trya commented on 2012-03-31 21:07

@leomeloxp: did you try what cupantae suggested? Because most of the time, Pulseaudio respawns when killed if another program has opened a sound output. The autospawn option controls this behaviour.
