Sound in Linux
Minecraft is apparently rigorously tested only on Windows, and frequently has problems with the sound drivers under Linux. These problems are frequently associated with the Light Weight Java Game Library (web site), but in one instance (on 2011-09-02) the problem was in the /options.txt file -- the "music" and "sound" settings had both been turned down to 0.0 (even though in-game the volume was set at full); changing both settings to 1.0 fixed the problem.
