I've published a modified PKGBUILD including the et-sdl-sound hack by default: I find this should be default for this package because
the aur package for et-sdl-sound seems to be broken and the oss emulation kernel modules for alsa are non-existent anymore AFAIK.

But this is a binary package (with previous license)
Also artwork should be splitted from this package to make it possible to use in open source version of enemy-territory

License is worng.
Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory is released under GPLv3.

Can anyone ask for orphaning this package in aur-general ml?

@aaronfitz thanks for the tip! looks like rebuilding the package with !strip helped. i have sound now :)

OK, I'm sure all of you that are subscribed to this guy are getting a little annoyed as this is my third comment in as many days, but I've got the hardware acceleration working :)

I installed package 'mesa-demos', and saw that glxgears can go at 60FPS with no CPU usage. So I ran glxinfo, and here's a snippet from that output -

OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Desktop
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 8.0.3
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

I ran ET again (which is getting <10FPS and very high CPU usage), and noticed this output during startup -

...loading Initializing OpenGL display
...setting mode -1: 1600 1024

GL_VENDOR: VMware, Inc.
GL_RENDERER: Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe (LLVM 0x300)
GL_VERSION: 2.1 Mesa 8.0.3

A quick web search let me know that llvmpipe is the software OpenGL renderer, so I was correct that hardware acceleration wasn't enabled for the game. Since I now knew mesa is in charge of the OpenGL libraries, I went off on a search for the 32-bit versions of those libraries. It let me to the lib32-mesa package ( ), which I already had installed. However, note the split packages are for hardware support. I installed lib32-intel-dri (since I use the onchip graphics in my Intel i2600), and viola, hardware acceleration works now. ET is getting much higher framerates (60fps.. likely vsync limited), and its startup reflects the acceleration -

OpenGL vendor string: Tungsten Graphics, Inc
OpenGL renderer string: Mesa DRI Intel(R) Sandybridge Desktop
OpenGL version string: 3.0 Mesa 8.0.3
OpenGL shading language version string: 1.30

Hope these couple information dumps help someone else trying to get this working smoothly on x86_64

I got the sound working. Here's what I did in case it helps anyone -

1. Installed this, but modified the PKGBUILD with options=(!strip)
2. Downloaded et-sdl-sound from
3. Changed SDL_AUDIODRIVER to "alsa"
4. Went back and installed lib32-libpulse and lib32-alsa-plugins (they're noted as optional on the Wiki page, wish I would've noticed them earlier). This stopped the audio driver = NULL errors I was getting and now sound is working fine through pulseaudio

Now, time to see if I can get hardware acceleration working on this guy. Is this library error normal for everyone?

Can someone elaborate a little bit on how to get sound working with PulseAudio? ET and PB seem OK, and I got in all of my old configs and etkey from back in the day. It all seems to be running great in my multilib 64-bit environment.. just no sound.

Where this game stores maps and addons downloaded during connecting to a server?

Another update (hopefully last):

Maybe because you are running 64bit and the game/script is 32bit, I dont have a 64bit at my disposal to troubleshoot with, maybe you could try building et from source (available is idsoftware git repo) or using a et2.60b compatible rebuild (for eg;
