    I don't know that this will apply to all, but I know that my laptop runs sound through the APU.

    So you have skyrim in wine (Or nooby POL or whatever) and it runs! COOL! YOU ARE ONE STEP TOWARD AWESOME!!! Uh oh, why is the intro video so crackly in sound? Huh? NOOOO WHY CAN'T I HAVE SOUND?!??!?!?!?

    Well let's address this on a chip level.

    With an APU there are multiple streams that say I AM VIDEO, or I AM SOUND, or I AM BLEH and it is always calling for package A B C D. If you don't have them, the APU freaks out and flips on it's back and yells like a child.

    What to do to fix this

    So we have normal wine, right? HOPEFULLY the latest version of it (1.7.22) and set in.

    Boop open your terminal and type
    Code:
     sudo winecfg 
    We are doing sudo just to make sure. It won't hurt anything.


    The packages we want are listed here:

    Code:
    d3d10
    d3d10core
    d3d10_1
    d3dcompiler_35
    d3dcompiler_36
    d3dcompiler_37
    d3dcompiler_38
    d3dcompiler_39
    d3dcompiler_40
    d3dcompiler_41
    d3dcompiler_42
    d3d10_36
    d3d10_37
    d3d10_38
    d3d10_39
    d3d10_40
    d3d10_41
    d3d10_42
    dsound
    dmusic
    msvcm80
    msvcm90
    msvcp100
    msvcp110
    msvcp60
    msvcp70
    msvcp71
    msvcp80
    msvcp90
    msvcr100
    msvcr70
    msvcr71
    msvcr80
    msvcr90
    xinput1_1
    xinput1_2
    xinput1_3
    xinput1_4
    Yes this is a lot to add, but this is creating a fallback for your wine system.

    However way you installed skyrim (either steam or by CD) one way or another sound will work. For me it is a little crackly but I have sound and I can play this like I do in Windows.


    SPARE SOUND FALLBACKS

    Here is a list of directX packages that are being built in wine.

    http://wiki.winehq.org/DirectXStatus

    In dsound and dmusic are the other packages associated with the main packages. If the dsound and dmusic packages do not support as a backup to xinput, then add the packages that are associated with them. This will have all the packages that are either inside of the dsound and dmusic parts that are not being accessed and will serve as a popular fallback.

    There are no pictures here because this guide helps with adding packages in the winecfg window on an APU machine. There is nothing to show here.

    I moved your "no sound" guide to Linux Guides (other) forum since its not a full game installation guide.
    Not sure why its not on the front page anymore. I'll ask the admins.

    I wasn't sure where to put the thread and I couldn't find a general linux one.

    Thank you.

    Yup, right here is fine.
    Any Guide that is not a full installation for games, just post them here
