How do I get alsa support working in Wine?

asked 2019-02-04 18:41:48 -0600

I am trying to run a Digital Audio Workstation software in Wine on Fedora 29, and I need to use the winealsa drivers instead of the default pulseaudio drivers. The alsa option is missing in wineconfig and from the registry. I installed Fedora's default packages for wine-staging using the dnf install wine command, and the wine-devel package is the only additional one I added.

I have confirmed that the winealsa.drv.so file is present in the wine folders for both usr/lib64/wine and usr/lib/wine.

Is there a command line option for getting this in the registry? I've seen the documentation on the winehq website about manually entering the information for alsa in the registry; I am not sure what I am supposed to put in for the strings associated with the alsa devices.

see if this helps. This is a wine problem, not so much a fedora issue, but I will try to help.

Thanks for your help! I have seen the Wine wiki page, but I am struggling to determine what information I need to put in for the string values for the input and output devices. I have submitted a question to Wine's support forum but haven't heard back yet.
