No music
A possible bug on Linux

So I've played the Steam version of ADOM for a few hundred hours. However, I've learned that this game is supposed to have some kind of music, but I've never heard any. Other sounds work and that short music track plays out when you complete a quest.

Which Linux are you using? Could you please post the result of "ldd adom" (execute this from the shell in the ADOM directory)?

You can find the music files in the "sound/music" directory. They are encoded in OGG format. Can you play them from there?

The short music track for completed quests is encoded in WAV format. Which probably explains why you can hear it. ;)

libogg is installed and yes I can play those files. I'm using Solus, so if there's an issue with... symlinking something something... I'll let them know.

Is this the complete list of dependencies? libogg and libvorbis should be in there... they are dependencies of SDL2_mixer. Without them ADOM can't play the OGG files.

Yes it is. I don't know much about symlinking and such, so do you know what could have gone wrong here?

I suspect that the SDL2_mixer library was compiled without support for OGG. We officially only support Ubuntu, so there might be other issues involved here.

Thank you sir! Submitted a bug report ( and it should be already fixed.

That's great. I hope you can enjoy the music soon!

I'm closing this issue with "not a bug" because it's not related to ADOM itself.
