While running VBA with any rom, the console gives the following output

Failed to open audio: Couldn't open ESD connection

Any ideas as to how to solve this? (or is there anyway to make VBA to use ALSA or OSS?)

Edit1 : nvm... i only had to initiate the ESD daemon... sound it now working however it is incredibly low quality >.< (i get a lot of distortion)

Try to find more about the SDL options for sound as that's what VBA uses. Try running with SDL_AUDIODRIVER set to dsp or alsa and see if the result is better.

Great! setting SDL_AUDIODRIVE to alsa actually worked . Thank you very much

...although now it runs at 150% speed... but i remember seeing another thread about that issue

edit: nvm i set the variable at dsp and now it runs perfectly
