Linux dump? what is it and how to do it?


Hi,

I am pretty new to Linux. I am trying to get my Linux installation to work on my laptop, I was told that I need to do a linux dump on my audio card in order to get the necessary information. I have no clue what that mean nor do I know how to do it . Does it have to do with the linux dump command? Please help

Thanks for the help in advance.

Have
you installed linux and audio card is not working?
If so do a
#lspci
to see what hardware do you have. OR if you have windows check the drivers for audio card there.

I think what they mean by dump, is the output from a given command to the screen. If you give the command listed above lspci it will print or dump the output to your monitor.

Check to see that the volume is turned up, in a terminal window type alsamixer check the master volume, you raise or lower the volume with the up/down arrow keys. To exit the program press the Esc key. If the volume is up you may need to configure the card with the alsa-configuration utility in a terminal type alsaconf and follow the instructions. If that doesn't work post back.

^or may be they meant was dump(dd) few bytes of raw data on /dev/dsp[w-i] to see if alsa or oss is working.

But Again we don't know if the linux has been installed or not.
