Default Sound problem in Ubuntu 11.10

i'm on Ubuntu 11.10 64-bit.
Altitude runs fine, at the menus sound is working properly.
When I enter a game, sounds stop.

Initially I thought it was just a driver problem, then I installed all sort of packages to try and solve this.
In an old topic here in the forums a user suggested some packages, that in my case did not do the job.

Attached are log file (showing some errors) and system info.

Thanks in advance for your help. =)

Did you install Altitude using the Altitude.sh from our download page?

If so try the following:

1) Use Ubuntu software installer to install the latest OpenJDK-6 (7 should work too)
2) Open a terminal window
3) Navigate to the altitude directory (cd /home/luke/altitude)
4) type "mv jre jre_old"
5) Launch altitude

This should force Altitude to use OpenJDK java instead of the bundled Sun JVM.

You can also try running the game from:

Yes, I used the .sh installer.

OpenJDK-6 was already up-to-date, and I had already renamed the jre folder (alti wasn't even starting leaving it with the default name).

Launching from website does not solve the problem, either.

I got the same problem here on Debian. But Im pretty sure its because Im using ALSA instead of PulseAudio. If I remember correctly, it worked fine for me with a clean install of Ubuntu like 2 years ago.

You could try nimblygames.com/test/altitude.sh it uses a software implementation of OpenAL.

Yep, on the previous ubuntu release it was working for me, too.

Done. The problem persists. Could it be just a bug somewhere in the oneiric ocelot release?
