[ALSA]: no soundcards found...
I don't know if this is the right forum, but here the question is ;)...
I have a problem that when I do:
What can I do to make ALSA work?
Thanks a lot ;)
When did you install ALSA? and HOW?
I don't know when, I don't know how :).
I just installed Ubuntu 5.10, did all the upgrades. Installed this: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_nforce_1.0-0310.html [nforce chipset drivers]...
That's all I did. But to use Twinkle Phone (VOIP program), I have to use ALSA, but it seems like I can't get it to work...
That's why I am asking ;)
In KDE, Control Panel, Sound and multimedia, Sound System, Hardware, you can select which sound system you want to use.
There is probably something similar in Gnome but I wouldn't know as I avoid using it (no flames please:))
However don't be surprised if ALSA is already selected! I used to get this message too and attributed it to a timing problem, ie the sound system took longer to initialise than the boot process was willing to wait.
Never caused any problems.
In Gnome I found something under System > Administration > Device Manager. But there I only see what kind of hardware I have... Nothing to choose (and I see I have nVidia CK 804 capture/playback/... ALSA stuff).
The thing is that I have sound, but can't use twinkle phone :(. So I always have to boot to windows to call... Kinda stupid ;).
I just found System > Preferences > Multimedia Systems Selector. Seems what you meant...
When testing ALSA I get a rather high constant tone... So I guess that's OK?
I tried twinklephone after that and I heard it rang, and it didn't gave any error, so it's resolved by this small little trick of yours ;)
Thanks a lot!
