Hi,

I'm sure you ran alsaconf on the system again? What outputs did you get when you ran it? Don't forget to set your alsamixer.

Quote:
excerpt from 'man alsaconf';

Alsaconf will write a module-init-tools (or modutils) snippet which can
be then used by module-init-tools (or modutils) to load the correct
parameters for your sound card.

Hi,thank you for your reply. Now using OSS sound driver and it works well too.
I do have run alsaconf and alsamixer. But it didn't work. Dev files like dsp went away after reboot.

When you make changes to alsa you should do a 'alsactl store' from the cli.

From our talk, I find out that just face and solve questions simple with go-by help doc, althougth my problem unfixed by now. I will try it again along the "readme" step by step. Slackware is a little more hard to use than ubuntu. Thank you!

True, but Slackware allows or forces you too know more of the intricacies of the system that are hidden from the user with the ubuntu world.

nVidia MCP67

Well my problem seems a little different that others listed here. I am running SlamD64 on a HP2945se.

My audio works well enough. Sound from speakers ok and the volume controls work. My problem is my audio jack, while they work, they don't stop sound from coming out of the speakers. This obviously defeats the purpose of headphones.

I ran alsaconf and it gives me two options MCP67 or legacy. Well legacy won't install so it isn't really an option. When I use MCP67, it completes configuration but alsa mixer only shows Master, PCM and Capture. It doesn't show Line In Headphones etc.

Is there a way to correct this or is this as good as it gets?

Thanks in advance for the attention
Ace
