No Sound on Slackware 13.1 64Bit


The subject title is a little misleading, I get sound by PC but not on Video's or YouTube or anything in the browser. I have installed the Flash file into the plugins folder and so I can see video, but not hear them.

I should also mention this is on an HP Pavilion Laptop 9000 series.

I'm sure it's a simple fix, thanks for any assistance.

Hello and Welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Do you have a webcam with integrated microphone or something like that? I had the same problem and had to set one option.
Create a file (if it doesn't exist) named sound.conf in /etc/modprobe.d and put this in it:
Code:
options snd_usb_audio index=-2
Then restart.

That did it for me.

Kind regards,

Eric

There is a file called sound in modprobe.d but no sound.conf - should I change the name of the other file or create a new sound.conf?

Thanks

Hello,

If you have the file 'sound' in /etc/modprobe.d then put then line I posted in that file. No need to rename the file or create another one. I use the name 'sound' also but for some reason I got warnings stating that it should be named sound.conf in the future (or some reference like that).

Kind regards,

Eric

There was an error stating that in the future it will be a sound.conf, I actually nuked the sound file and made a sound.conf and the error or warning goes away.

Still no sound at YouTube or any browser related things with sound.

Thanks for your help none the less.

Hi,

Sorry to hear it didn't work. Can you check with alsamixer or something like that for any strange sound configurations?

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello again,

I knew I had a thread lying around here at LQ that might help you. Have a look at this:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...3/#post3810054
it has some information and a script that might be of help in your case too. As you'll notice this one was opened by me because I had the same issue after NVidia driver installation. Maybe it'll be of use to you too.

Kind regards,

Eric

Alsamixer shows one sound card which is HDA nVidia in this Laptop dv9000 HP. I can get sound when testing the sound in KDE but YouTube Videos on run video with no audio : (

Hi,

Maybe stupid question, but did you install the NVidia kernel and driver packages from SlackBuild.org? Since you now mention the NVidia card. I did last weekend when installing Slackware64 13.1 and after I did the sound.conf part, I got my sound in browsers working. I remember I had to reboot though to have it take effect.

Kind regards,

Eric

Hi,

The logical thing to do is to take the one that applies to your card What type of NVidia card do you have?
Code:
lspci
Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

Can you post output of both commands:
Code:
lspci
lspci -n
the full lines? Most important part is the number at the beginning of lspci line referencing your card. Next in lspci -n use the number in the third column where the first column is the number you got from lspci. Use that number to find the correct driver to use (Google).

Kind regards,

Eric
