No sound in Mint 6 after installing wine


Hey Guys,

I installed Mint 6 on my Dell XPS 1530 2 days ago. After install, sound seems to be working fine. Yesterday I installed wine and tried to check audio options using "winecfg". After that I lost my sound and can only here sound just like that of old car engine.

I tried to check other posts here and nothing seems a good solution.

Here is output for "lspci"

Best guess: Wine is configured to use OSS, not ALSA for your sound output. OSS is simpler than ALSA and puts a lower load on your system, mainly because it doesn't use a software mixer, meaning that only one program can output sound at a time.

A simple workaround is to install the alsa-oss package, which will re-route all OSS sounds through ALSA, allowing the software mixer to work.

If not, then wine's sound output is not configured properly.

WOW!!! That worked perfectly fine....Thanks a lot.

But the sound seems to be low compared to Vista...any solution to increase it further?

Do you mean the sound's volume is low?

There are often several volume controls on the soundcard, and ALSA might provide software emulations. For example, old Sound Blaster 16 cards had both an attenuator and a pre-amp', which showed as separate volume controls.

Also, individual programs may occasionally have their own volume controls separate from ALSA. These effectively mute the sound before outputting it. Most programs just change the master volume level though.

I'm using Ubuntu rather than Mint, so the user interface may vary slightly.

There should be a volume applet on the panel somewhere (if not, you can right-click on an empty part of the panel to add one). If you right-click on the applet you should get an option like "open volume control". This will bring up a dialog with a drop-down for the various sound devices (physical and virtual) on the computer, and show you the various volume controls for each, in a tabbed pane. Some options may be hidden behind the Preferences button. Sometimes more than one volume control may have an effect.

Hope that helps,

—Robert J Lee
