Fix for NO SOUND on debian wheezy with alsa
This should work for some users who have no sound when running aquaria on debian wheezy, and perhaps other distros. Wheezy comes preconfigured with alsa, and though some users have suggested installing pulseaudio, it just didn't work right for me.

With root permissions, open the file /etc/openal/alsoft.conf and scroll down to the drivers section and insert the line "drivers = alsa" (without quotes) and leave everything else commented as is. Save the file and that should do the trick. What this does is changes the load order so that alsa is the only thing it looks for. I had no sound at all in Aquaria until I did this. (just for reference, I'm running the 64 bit version) It may also help with sound problems for other games that use openal.

If you're not using alsa, this won't apply to you, but you might replace 'alsa' with the sound system you ARE using.
