note: flash works, vid works on youtube just no sound.
Why is it that the same install dvd w/ same hw doesn't do the same thing it did 2 months ago.
2 months ago it took some configuring in dapper to get opical output working. switched to gutsy no optical no matter what, gave up went w/ analog. no problem right out of the box.
tried a few other flavors, now my agp isn't recognized out of the box and I have to physically remove it to instlall gutsy again. try to reinstall it, no luck still using onbaord. tried a few more flavors no sound support out of the box.
back to gutsy no sound supoort out of the box.
What gives here?
I've added medibuntu, done
sudo apt-get install kubuntu-restricted-extras
tried adding alsa, adjusting kmix, btw this install had startup sound, now it doesn't even have .flac support.
I did another fresh install w/ the soundcard removed. Yamaha USB 2.1 speakers installed, recognized, onboard sound turned off.
I get sound from mp3 playback!
still no sound from flash sites, no sound from internet at all, can some one help? pulling my hair out need this fixed.
Of the flavors I've tried xubuntu gave me flac playback from the livecd, not from the install.
Mint KDE gave me no sound at all!
fluxbuntu gave me startup sounds
This is going to be my kids pc so if I can figure this out, I"ll be done w/ it and I can move on to my main pc.
Thanks for any help or ideas.
