As you may or may not be aware, the Second Life viewer is available for Linux, negating the need to run the Windows version from within WINE. It is not, however, without its problems. Voice chat, for example, is very dicey. Are you running Second Life from within Linux? If so, then please share your experiences. What Linux distro are you using (Debian, Mint, Ubuntu, etc.)? What desktop management are you using (Gnome, KDE, etc.)? Are you running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Linux? What audio server setup are you using (OSS, ESD, ALSA, PulseAudio, etc.)? Do you have problems with voice chat? With streaming music or media? Other issues? I would like to make this an SL-Linux support thread. I don't have all the answers, but between all of us, I'm sure we can come up with answers to help each other and anyone else who encounters a problem. So, here goes: I run Ubuntu x64, using Gnome. I have PulseAudio set up, with ESD-emulation (pulseaudio-esound-compat) and OSS redirection through padsp. However, in spite of all the workarounds I have tried, I have no voice capability. It doesn't even attempt to connect to the vivox servers. Additionally, attempting to access streaming media causes me to crash, with both the v18.104.22.168 and v1.20.15 viewers. I have every gstreamer codec and plugin available, but no dice. When it crashes, it doesn't even leave a clue about what happened in the crash logs. Streaming music works fine. I am beginning to believe that the voice problem is due to 64-bit incompatibility. I was able to establish connection using my 32-bit Ubuntu server box, but it would disconnect/reconnect every 60 seconds, and I could not hear anyone. I did not try any of the workarounds there because I did not want to corrupt my server. I may replace my 64-bit install on my laptop with the 32-bit version when Intrepid Ibex comes out in about two months, and we'll see what happens then. The crashing when accessing streaming media problem is still a complete head-scratcher for me. Lastly, when using the v1.20.15 viewer, I experience frequent freeze-ups that require me to reset my wireless card to fix. Everything will be working fine for a while, and then all of a sudden things get stuttery, the viewer freezes for a second, and my wireless card goes offline. Anyone else experience this problem?
