I had a lot of audio and other problems when trying to use PlayOnLinux with most of my games. I found that installing them under my normal non POL did not have these issues. One of the biggest problems I had was that none of my POL wine versions supported Pulseaudio for some reason, I manually installed the driver (and edited the registry to "pulse" and still nothing would allow me to use it. I eventual created a new wine version in my POL folder and simply copied my working (32bit wine) to the newly created folder and all of a sudden I was able to use all the features that my normal wine install could use. Pulseaudio for me has always worked better, I have never had pops or cracks in my audio because of it and I would love to know why it is not supported in any of the POL wine versions I download (and I'm positive that I'm doing something wrong, but it does all work now).

Just set SoundHardwareAcceleration to Emulation in winecfg and sound will work, even with PulseAudio enabled.

We do not enable pulseaudio support in our build because many GNU/Linux distributions do not use it...POL need to work for all, not just Ubuntu users.

Thanks for the reply, I only need it because of a not so great setup on my part (Fedora btw) but at least now I understand, and otherwise POL is great!

If I open winecfg it won't give me the option to set SoundHardwareAcceleration to Emulation in the Audio-Tab. That's with wine 1.4 and up. So how would I want to do that?

In Wine 1.4 you have no choice, sound subsystem has been rewritten and you only have the equivalent of Emulation.

If you're interested in pulseaudio support, there's a feature request open:
