I just installed cldx and am happy to see

that my out of the box experience is that everything works and is running…sound bluetooth internet wifi etc. TY very much for fixing that so everything needs no setup from me. Only thing i did was adjust the time and i am off.

Things on my todo list include conky, virtualbox, and steam.

Fine! To install this software run:

emerge -a games-util/steam-launcher app-emulation/virtualbox app-admin/conky

tried to run my game but it failed to connect to audio device. on arch i would need lib32-libpulse and maybe some alsa plugin for pulse for steam. Is there an easy way to do that or do i need to rebuild with multilib enabled or something?

ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1108:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
INFO: OpenAudioDevice failed: ALSA: Couldn’t open audio device: No such file or directory

this was suggested on the net but didnt work for /etc/apulse

ctl.!default {
type hw
card 0
}

pcm.my_card {
type hw
card 0
# mmap_emulation true
}

pcm.dmixed {
type dmix
ipc_key 1024
# ipc_key_add_uid false # let multiple users share
# ipc_perm 0666 # IPC permissions for multi user sharing (octal, default 0600)
slave {
pcm "my_card"
# rate 48000
# period_size 512
}
}

pcm.dsnooped {
type dsnoop
ipc_key 2048
slave {
pcm "my_card"
# rate 48000
# period_size 128
}
}

pcm.asymed {
type asym
playback.pcm "dmixed"
capture.pcm "dsnooped"
}

pcm.pasymed {
type plug
slave.pcm "asymed"
}

pcm.dsp0 {
type plug
slave.pcm "asymed"
}

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm "asymed"
}

also didnt work

# For "pulse" sdl audio error add in start.sh:
export SDL_AUDIODRIVER=alsa
export AUDIODEV pulse

also didnt work

had the same issue
here's a hacky fix until next steam client update:
copy paste into /usr/bin/steam after #!/bin/bash
export STEAM_RUNTIME=0

and now my steam is broken!

fixed that steam wouldnt run and now back to this

ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1108:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
INFO: OpenAudioDevice failed: ALSA: Couldn't open audio device: No such file or directory

do i want media-sound/apulse or media-plugins/alsa-plugins or neither?
