audio trubles on mdk


hallo all,
since december I decided to choose linux, from that day I tried all mdk disrtos from 9.0 to 10 beta2. For all I experienced troubles with the audio system:

*********************************************************************************************
audio starts running, but after a while It crashes and stop working, making most of the applications which try to call audio drivers to crash too.
*********************************************************************************************

that's probably due to Alsa config. but I'm not able to set it for the best. I've tried with alsa project support, but I've understood quiet nothing. In the session drivers my sound card is listed and supported, (Cmedia 8738, shipped on asus mainboard), so I thought maybe is enough to set the config parameters in HardDrake, but again I cant find out what values I gotta enter.

could anyone out there help me?

I have the exact same card as you and it worked fine in Mandy 9.1 and works fine mandy 10 community.
Have you tried using the OSS drivers instead?

Unhappy silence again

dear beejayzed,

my happiness lasted a while.
After half an hour of playing the sound stopped, and after rebooting there was any sound (
The system can't find the audio device with the new drivers. So I switched back to the old setting (the default driver snd-cmipci) and the song remains the same: few minutes of playing and then the silence breaks uot.

can you please tell me which is the driver you're using?
did you set its valuse anyhow?

thanks
aidoru

I'm using "cmpci", I find the "snd-cmpci' drivers don't work well. I don't know whats happening here. Which mixer are you using? Myabe you should try aumix.

sorry to be so late

hi beejayzed,
sorry to be so late.
Ain't a problem of mixer, it's actually a problem of audio driver.
I've tried to use cmppci but the system is mute at all, whichever the mixer i use is: kmix, alsa mixer or aumix. (I've also read a your post elsewhere in this forum and changed the mixer configuration file with the one you shown).
I alsa installed the latest alsa driver and configured the sound system in the way the instructions say to do, but nothing changed. The problem that troubled my audio card in Windows was that it was in conflict with the ethernet card, maybe now is the same.

anyway many thanks for your interest.
bye

aidoru

Could be that, since I have your exact sound card and have no problems.
