ALSA - How do I know?


How do I know they are loading?

I have a slight problem with sound in TeamSpeak.
I cannot hear or speak.. both options are muted.

The driver information listed in Teamspeak are as follows:

Default option is: oss/dev/dsp

The other alternative is dev/dsp.

I am using the nvidia nforce onboard sound on my Asus board.

Thanks guys..

P.S. - all other sound works, including recording and aumix. Just Teamspeak.

Well, you could always do an "lsmod" to see what modules you have loaded. But if all other sound works, as you say, they are loaded.

Perhaps you should check the permissions on this "oss/dev/dsp", or, use /dev/dsp, or check the permissions on /dev/dsp if that does not work.

Good luck

I'd like to second that. I was unwilling to suggest this earlier as you had a 0 reply status and more people will see a thread with than one with a reply, but now I can

It's most likely a problem with teamspeak or the way teamspeak accesses the audio device. Ensure your volumes are all up ( I always prefer to use alsamixer when I'm troubleshooting to be sure it's not a problem with the gui app I might be using), nothing is muted that shouldn't be.

Cool

Thanks for the quick replies.

1. Doing the lsmod shows me this sound info:
- i810 audio
- soundcore
- ac97_codec

None of those apply to my sound. I must not have it setup correctly.

I will go to the nvidia site and try to find the correct drivers and see what that leads me to.

Thanks again.

-any other ideas?

Good luck, I think the nvidia drivers does have that, I've just been seeing a lot of posts on it lately, seems to be the hot topic

Cool

if you are running KDE it's because you cant access /dev/dsp


BTW it's not oss/dev/dsb it oss then in a box it's /dev/dsp like this:

oss [ /dev/dsp ] it's an option to use oss (i.e /dev/dsp) it's not /oss/dev/dsp

if you are running alsa make sure your volumes are not muted.. alsamixer should help. kill artsd if its running or load teamspeak with artsdsp

If you are using KDE, I belive you have to have to use the aRts output plugin,...
