CrossOver Support

Missing libasound 32-bit library


Wine needs this library in order to let Windows applications play sounds using the Alsa sound system. This is the preferred way to provide sound support to Windows applications on Linux in CrossOver 14. With CrossOver 15, support for Pulse Audio has been added. If you are running CrossOver 15, please see the our page regarding the libpulse library.


To install this library, run one of the following commands as root, or look for the corresponding package names in your favorite package manager:

    32-bit Debian or Ubuntu : apt-get install libasound2 libasound2-plugins
    64-bit Debian or Ubuntu : apt-get install libasound2:i386 libasound2-plugins:i386
    32/64-bit Fedora : dnf install alsa-lib.i686 alsa-plugins-pulseaudio.i686
    32/64-bit Mandriva : urpmi libalsa2
    32-bit SUSE : zypper install libasound2
    64-bit SUSE : zypper install libasound2-32bit
    32-bit Arch : pacman -Syu alsa-lib alsa-plugins
    64-bit Arch : pacman -Syu lib32-alsa-lib lib32-alsa-plugins

libasound2-plugins is not necessary but it does make CrossOver and other native apps play nicely together
