rdesktop sound from remote machine
« on: June 13, 2011, 23:05:37 PM »
Hi: 

I'm running Plop Linux v4.0.6 via PXE boot via NFS as a thin client and have had a request to pass sound via rdesktop from the remote Win7 machine to the local Plop Linux client.

I use the following command to launch rdesktop:

rdesktop -u "" -f -z -4  -r sound:local $computerName &

However I get a warning from rdesktop:

"WARNING: initializing sound-support failed"

I saw the following thread that instructed me to use pciprobe to load the sound drivers:

http://forum.plop.at/index.php/topic,442.0.html

I can set the volume using alsamixer but can't play any .ogg, .wav or .mp3 files in gnome-mplayer as there doesn't appear to be format support, so I'm not even sure I've loaded the drivers correctly. I've pasted the output from lspci and lsmod below, any help would be greatly appreciated.
