Can not find soundcard
 
I have just installed Oracle enterprise Linux 5.
Beforehand I had Mandrive 2008 which could configure my soundcard.
However enterprise Linux 5 can't.

Any ideas why

Hi davholla, Welcome to LQ. The system does see your card.

What steps have you tried to configure it?

Good luck. ;-)

Sorry you are right it does. I was tried when I created the original post.
My soundcard does not make any sound. I have checked the connections and it did work with previous versions of Linux in the past.

I think the problem is with pulse audio ( I could be wrong but I think this has been the solution in the past).
However when I try to install this I get this

Code:

yum list | grep pulse
Bad id for repo: fresh rpms, byte =  5

I have got experience with Linux but with very little of installing software on Red Hat based systems (which Oracle linux is).
With Mandriva I could have installed this by now but I think I need to add new repositories to my package manager(?)

One of these should get you going in the right direction.

Thanks I will try that tonight/tomorrow.

I really need some luck with this.

Peacedog 03-15-2011 08:50 PM

Let us know if you have any further trouble.

Good luck. ;-)

That was quite helpful
Less so as I don't have a support licence.

I added this repository
http://apt.sw.be/redhat/el5/en/mirrors-rpmforge
And now I can use a lot more packages.
However I really want to add the base centos repositories, as that should give me more packages. Do you know where they are?

Peacedog 03-16-2011 07:57 PM

Is this what you're looking for?

Good luck. ;-)

davholla 03-17-2011 04:05 AM

Yes and no - surprisingly although I seem to have lots of packages avaliable pulse audio - which I think will fix my sound issue - is not one of them :(.

Just a thought, but why are you using Oracle (a new Microsoft in the making), and without support at that?

It is not a good idea to mix repositories that are not designed to be mixed. CentOS is supported by its own repository (try googling), epel (from Fedora), and RPMfusion. Their offerings will only be safe for Oracle Linux in so far as Oracle is an exact match for Red Hat. Are you sure it is? Are you sure it will continue to be?

Good question. Normally it would be a bad idea.
However I want to install Oracle R12 on my home PC.
Rather stupidly I gave away my old one which would have been perfect. Although for reasons of space,even if I had 2 PCs I would have problems using both of them -my house is very crowded.

davholla 03-17-2011 04:04 PM

PS I did try googling Centos and I have access to some of the repositories but sadly no pulseaudio.

Also Oracle is nothing like Microsoft - Larry would never give his money to charity!

Oracle and Red Hat repositories

Apparently, the two Linuces will not continue to be exact matches. Not, at least, if Red Hat has anything to say about it:
Red Hat Stops shipping Kernel Changes as Patches

You could always compile from source if you have the patience to grab all of the dependencies and you truly believe it will correct your problem.

Good luck. ;-)

DavidMcCann 03-19-2011 12:29 PM

You can have PulseAudio with CentOS: it's in the EPEL repository.
