The root cause seems to be that the install command doesn't have a --root argument at all, so it doesn't install to $pkgdir like it should. Here's a patch for the issue (apply with git am file.patch).

Subject: [PATCH] Patch ` install` to obey `$pkgdir`

And pass `--optimize=1` while we're at it.

No, i meant first run has the error [1] ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1090:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave Can not open ao device: 1 and it starts to playback mods after it.

salamander commented on 2020-07-18 11:26 (UTC)

so, you could playback mods with uade only 2 times and then never again? that's odd.

no restrictions like these here, but i also did not modify any of my .confs, after all. still, i need "sudo" to get uade running without device / uadecore errors.

streamripping mods to wav like this is quite frustrating, as the resulting files are all admin addressed only...

i try always use sudo, but in case with uade it does not work from the user.

also after reboot uade started only at second time:

sudo uade123 jingle5.mod
[1] ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:1090:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave

Can not open ao device: 1

uadecore: No more songs to play.

salamander commented on 2020-07-18 08:24 (UTC)


but for playing back jingle5.mod you still make use of "sudo"?

this is exactly what i try to get rid of :) it should perfectly work without admin rights and give no errors at all.

Hi Guys,

i came across the same issue and fixed it with:

cat /etc/libao.conf:




cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf:

options snd_mia index=0

options snd-hda-intel index=1

And now it works like a charm:

sudo uade123 jingle5.mod

salamander commented on 2020-07-06 14:05 (UTC)

Can not open ao device: 5 uadecore: No more songs to play.

sudo uade123 song.mod bypasses this problem - not sure, why this i needed though?
