You can somehow forget what I said, because I found a very dirty workaround to make it work without killing Pulseaudio. You actually need the handle of your sound device and add it as "Device=[handle]" under the [Sound] section of ~/.pSX/psx.ini. One way to get it is to run pSX as root (without any other program using the sound card), go to Configuration->Sound and select the right plughw device. Close pSX and find the device handle in /root/.pSX/psx.ini. I don't know if there's another way to get that handle without going root.
Anyway, once the configuration is done, you can finally run pSX as normal user, with the big inconvenient that pSX needs total control over the sound card, like a good ol' OSS program, so no other program shall use the sound card at the same time.

@klore: apart from ditching Pulseaudio? No. If only we could have access to pSX source code, we would be able to patch the bug.

any clear way to make it work?

@nagar: it's been stated before, pSX doesn't work with Pulseaudio. You can look for workarounds in the comments below.

Hello trya, please check this

I can't start psx any more, using x64 arch, Thanks

@TakuyaMK As I said before, lib32-alsa-plugins is optional because the 32-bit modules eventually used by pSX are loaded with dlopen, the modules needed depend on the sound system of choice and as with 32-bit DRI packages, the user has to install them explicitly: see

@trya Sorry. A mod deleted the duplicate package. Please, add the lib32-alsa-plugins dependece, without it doesn't work (on x64 arch).

@TakuyaMK: you could just say it instead of uploading a new package. Now we have a duplicate. Since you can't delete a package entry by yourself, you should send a message to in order to ask for removal.

I re-upload the PKGBUILD using this package because the last update was on may, it's on

I add a new source for downloading psx1.13 too, because the official web is down.
