Unhappy The sound stopped working..


The sound used to work, and then I had a problem with glibc which is discussed in another thread.
Now if I type sndconfig at the prompt it sets up the sound, and gets to the part where it plays the file of Linus pronouncing Linux. But it doesn't play the file, it used to before the problems with glibc, but it won't now.

If I do Sound & Video>Volume Control and adjust the volume it still doesn't work, but when I try sndconfig after using the Volume Control it says it can't open /dev/audio.
According to sndconfig my sound card is a "Crystal CS423x sound chip".

I'm not sure what files to look in for sound configuration, but the seemingly relevant parts of /etc/modules.conf are below.
Thanks!

alias sound-slot-0 cs4232
post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1|| :
options sound dmabuf=1
alias synth0 opl3
options opl3 io=0x388
options cs4232 isapnp=1

check to make sure that all of the modules that are needed by cs4232 are loaded with lsmod. you can see if they are by referencing the /lib/modules/2.4.??/modules.dep. give that a go, if not then drop back a line so that we may help out.

good luck.

ok, i'll see if i can remember things in rh. i use mdk so it's about the same.

if your using kde go to the configuration, kde, sound and look through the options. you might be on auto and some times it doesn't do the best job of detecting. i would switch it to either advanced linux sound architecture or threaded open sound system.

give those a shot.

Unfortunately i'm using Gnome, not KDE.
I would be using KDE, but I can't get KDE to start after the glibc mess.

drop your disks back in your drive and update/reinstall your glibc.

ls /mnt/cdrom/whereever

cd /mnt/cdrom/whereever

rpm -Uvh whatever

if that has conflicts then

rpm -Uvh --nodeps --force whatever

the wherever and whatever are the directories and the glibc versions.

or you could

urpmi --fuzzy glibc

try that

I already tried that for KDE, XFree86, and all the libs and sound files.

does it have anything else with it?

mine-
d800-d83f : Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS7012 PCI Audio Accelerator
d800-d83f : SiS SI7012 - Controller
dc00-dcff : Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] SiS7012 PCI Audio Accelerator
dc00-dcff : SiS SI7012 - AC'97

see how it has a second line. the second line is what tells me what codec it should be using.

ok, let play some. if it doesn't work we can put it back.

rmmod cs4232

then

modprobe cs4281

if that one doesn't work then

rmmod cs4281
modprobe cs46xx

give that a shot. we'll put it back if nether of them work.
