    Default Please include 32bit version of padsp in 64bit openSUSE

    As seen here. Summary:

    I've been trying to fix a Linux game for which sound wasn't working. After some searching, I found that I must run it with the "padsp" command. However, the game is 32 bit and I run 64 bit openSUSE, so "padsp ./game_binary" wouldn't work.

    I searched for a padsp32 command and even tried to replicate the padsp script, but the library for the x32 version doesn't exist in the x64 repositories. Eventually I got it working by extracting libpulsedsp.so from the x32 openSUSE repos, and manually launching the binary with a LD_PRELOAD pointing to it. This is a workaround and maintaining it can become problematic.

    The existing library can be found in /usr/lib64/pulseaudio/libpulsedsp.so and the script in /usr/bin/padsp. Basically, I'm asking for x32 bit versions of these in the x64 variant of openSUSE, so any 32bit program can benefit from them too.

    But we are not the people that can do that. We are just users helping
    other users, as volunteers.

    You'd better write a bugzilla, or try raising attention of devs by
    asking in the mail lists.

    Hi all!

    You can simply install the 32-bit-version by:
    Code:
    zypper in libpulse0-32bit
    I'm developing software mainly in 32bit and so far I always found a corresponding 32-bit opensuse package by adding "-32bit".

    Hope this helps
    Simon
