scripting help

In short, q3 sound is broken if you use anything else than OSS and only with some specific soundcards - at least this is what I understood from what I read around.

I found some post telling that these two commands fixed the problem

Code: Select all

echo "quake3.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
echo "quake3.x86 0 0 disable" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss
I tried it and it works, but only until the next reboot ...

So I wanted to put this into a script, to be able to execute those two commands and launch Q3 in a row.
Only problem, the commands have to be run as root, and the script execution stops as soon as I su ...

Any pointers to what I could do?

Tnx.

Just add those lines to the end of your /etc/rc.local script.
