Unhappy AC97 Alsa OSS/free emulation questions


Ok here I go. I am trying to get wineX3.1 to work. First problem was sound was choppy and I was told to get the alsa drivers for my soundcard. I went to alsa-project.org and found my card and followed the direction. Later I found out I had added the wrong lines to my module.conf file but I fixed that. Now I'm being told that I need to make sure I have OSS/free emulation module set up to autoload. Now I'm lost. Here is what I have installed: alsa 0.9.7a drivers 0.9.7, the alsa-util-0.9.7, and the alsa-lib-0.9.7 When I try to run alsamixer I get:
alsamixer:function snd_ctl_open failed for default.
When I try to do modprobe snd_pcm1-oss.o I get can't locate module.
I am now lost and have no clue what I'm looking for or what to do next. How do I know if I have oss/free emulation running? I have a alsa-oss-lib file that I d/l but don't know what to do with it? Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

There is another package on the ALSA site. It's called OSS Compat. Library. Were you sure to download and configure/make/make install this as well?

If you still have problems, you may post your /etc/modules.conf here as well as an output of lsmod.

Unhappy I have the ACī97 too, but it doesnīt work

I have the Intel AC97 sound card (integrated in the main board). I have been trying to configure with ALSA. ALSA says all it's ok but, when I try to configure the sound system with KDE, I have a message of troubles starting the sound system.

I'm using Mandriva 2006, my machine is a DELL Precision 340.

Now I donīt know what to do. Please help!!

hi i don't have this intel sound so forgive mistakes
try this in this order if some fail keep going and post results
also tell us what distribution you are using and kernel version
might be a udev problem and you need these commands in a boot file like
/etc/modules or /etc/sysconfig/modules or something like that
so try that as well.

modprobe soundcore
modprobe snd
modprobe snd-pcm
modprobe snd-mixer-oss
modprobe snd-seq-oss
modprobe snd-pcm-oss

i think the file to edit in mandrake is /etc/modprobe.preload
open that file add
snd-intel8x0

see after that if the sound is detected on boot
if not might need a newer kernel

souvik_becs:

Have you looked at http://www.alsa-project.org , in this site i found the exact driver for my sound card. You need alsa package installed too and use alsaconf for detecting your card. It was the solution for me.

Regards,

Enzo
