Hey, I had some issues with sound when I selected the Linux SPU plugin in ePSXe.

In order to log things in the Ubuntu terminal, I set up a shell script and ran it in the terminal. Then, I started up an ISO and the log showed the following:

 * SPUplayCDDAchannel disabled 
 * Init spu[0][] 
Sound device not available!
 * Open spu[0]

Note that I'm using ePSXe v1.9.0 Linux. How would I resolve the issue? Any ideas?

You need an OSS installed and configured in your system, but most distros now prefer ALSA+PulseAudio.
You can try:
1. Enable oss emulation in ALSA (haven't tried myself). Read this for instructions

2. Compile P.E.Op.S. SPU with ALSA support. Get sources: … z/download
Edit Makefile to enable ALSA support instead of OSS, also you will probably need to modify some compiler flags for compatibility with modern gcc. You'll need 32bit alsa-devel package.
I tried this myself and the sound was lossy. For example many sounds are corrupted in Castlevania: SotN.

3. You can use Eternal SPU 1.41 for linux.
Uses SDL, works best for me, some background sounds may vanish on load state until reloaded by game though.

Note, methods 1 and 2 will probably require that no other processes lock the card, so if you are running pulseaudio, temporarily stop it.
