toshiba tecra m2 sound issues in slackware 10


well i installed slackware 10 and anytime i go to run xmms it gives me the error that I do not have my sound card configured correctly. And whenever i try to run kmix or the volume controller in gnome it gives the error that it cannot find a sound card. whenever i run alsaconf it runs then says that it cannot find a suitable card. I also browsed the forum and couldnt really find anything, I dont really know where to go for sound issues in linux as normally the soundcard works perfectly in every other distro I've only really had trouble with video and the new nvidia driver fixed that,,,, Anyway i did run dmesg and this is what i found

Does lspci find the card? Have you tried the pci=noacpi option? If you know the chipset and proper driver you could just try modprobing it.
good luck.

Try adding snd-intel8x0m to /etc/hotplug/blacklist. Then reboot and try alsaconf again. IIRC, the modem driver causes problems, by blacklisting it, it shouldn't try to load. Hope that helps.
good luck.

hmm this is interesting
i went into the blacklist thing like you said and it had
i810_audio
already blacklisted so i removed that and added the line you suggested. now i can access the volume control thing and all is well however kscd or whatever will play the disk but even after i turn up all the settings to the max im having some trouble...

Try several mixers, some of them work better than others with different configurations. Just for curiosity, could you post the lsmod output?

I'm intersted to see if the card is using the oss , or alsa drivers. If it's using the alsa drivers, you could try alsamixer from a terminal, it'll probably work better than the others.

At least it's working.
good luck.

well this is interesting lol i tried running gxine and regular xine and both could now play the audio files fine with their default setup. however xmms had alsa set for sound and as soon as i changed it to oss everything works perfectly so i guess umm all i needed to do was take the sound modules off the backlist and configure xmms to use oss instead of alsa. thanks for your help PEACEDOG.

Glad you got it sorted, so the oss driver, or oss emulation worked?
