FC11 - How to specify audio device


Hey guys,

I'm trying to get my TS2 working on FC11 with my dv6 1193xt laptop but im sure i'm missing something fundimental.

I need to specify a sound device as /dev/dsp doesnt exist... and i have sound working beut in other apps. I guess i just dont understand how the sound works without the dsp devices.

i have
lspci | grep -i audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)

ls -l /dev/snd
total 0
crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 116, 10 2009-07-25 18:41 controlC0

crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 116, 2 2009-07-25 18:41 timer

cat /etc/asound.conf
#
# Place your global alsa-lib configuration here...
#

@hooks [
{
func load
files [
"/etc/alsa/pulse-default.conf"
]
errors false
}
]


ls /dev/ | grep dsp
<nada>

but when I get an app to refer to those devices i get nada.

How do i specify a sound device in /dev/ ?
Cheers

You don't need those dsp device nodes.

You have your /dev/snd directory with all the device nodes in there.

If you can't hear any audio when playing a song in a media player, then first check your volume control. For some reason Fedora always turns on/off digital/optical output mode. Remove that and you should hear sound.

I currently have amarok, and kmix open, and look what it is using:

Not sure about team speak, but did you try /dev/snd as the sound device?

No, i didnt try just using the folder, i'll give it a go. does it do something funky where you can just point a program at that folder and it will organise the devices?

Nup sry, no devices. I just need to understand how the devices are used and i can sort the rest out myself.

As far as I know, they only ever ask if you want to use dsp, dsp1, snd, or snd1, but YMMV
