nforce audio drivers - any help?
Ok, firstly, I have had Fedora Core 3 installed on my machine for about 2 days and up until now everything has been fine and dandy. FC had the LAN and audio working straight off the install which I was very impressed with.

After installing the graphics drivers, I also installed Doom 3 to check out what the performance would be like on Linux. However, once I get into the game.... no audio....

I DID have audio fine in FC (i.e: I could play MP3's and little sound effects occur here and there in KDE) so I assumed that the audio would work in Doom. However it didnt.

So I installed the nforce audio drivers onto my system (I have a G-B mobo with nforce 3 - integrated audio) and followed the instructions here:

after doing so, upon next reboot I had an error box pop up saying that a certain directory did not exist for the audio drivers. I then checked all the paths that are in the changes of the installation and I have found that:
does not exist on my system and yet the changes set out at the NVIDIA site point to this location... Has anyone else had this problem?

Do I need to re-install the drivers or any other software?

Any help is greatly appreciated...

Just installed the new nforce 1.0-0301 drivers yesterday and ran into no problems. By the way, what do you have in your doomconfig.cfg listed under "s_driver"? You might want to try setting that to "best" so Doom3 first checks for ALSA then falls back to OSS. If neither of thse work then looks like a bad install (although from that error msg, it already sounds like one)...

Actually, I just remembered that the nvidia driver is OSS only. So the "best" above doesn't really matter now, as it always reverts to using OSS....
