I just know there is a simple solution to this.
I'm trying to link an electric guitar to Hydrogen and Rakarrack using QJackCtl - but I am getting no sound from the speakers.
1. Guitar into Mic or Line input on Mobo - get sound out
2. Playing CD's - get sound out
3. On-line: Videos, Music, Radio - get sound out
4. Hard drive MP3's through VLC Media Player - get sound out.
QJackCtl, Hydrogen and Rakarrack all installed correctly and appear to link up OK - in accordance with the Help files offered by Rakarrack, Hydrogen and QJackCtl. When I start a Hydrogen sequence, QJackCtl indicates and follows the same time-line.
There appears nothing wrong in the QJackCtl log.
In QJackCtl - Hydrogen automatically links its OUT channels to QJackCtl PLAYBACK Channels.
I'm running Mandriva 2009.1 with a Core 2 Duo E7300 CPU on an ASRock P43Twins1600 Mobo using the onboard Intel HDA Audio.
I've run through the normal Mandriva sound check i.e.
"lspcidrake -v | fgrep -i AUDIO" - finds snd-hda-intel as the driver
"grep sound-slot /etc/modprobe.conf" - returns: alias sound-slot-1 for the snd-hda-intel driver
"/sbin/lsmod" - Ok but not entirely sure what I am looking for here
"/sbin/chkconfig --list sound"
sound 0;off 1;off 2;on 3;on 4;on 5;on 6;off 7;off
"/sbin/chkconfig --list alsa"
alsa 0;off 1;off 2;on 3;on 4;on 5;on 6;off;7 off
(Aside - replaced all colons in above for semi-colons as for some reason colons (
are interpreted as images and I'm only allowed 8 images ??? - but I digress)
"aumix -q" : command not found (probably because I'm using alsamix or Kmix)
"/sbin/fuser -v /dev/dsp" : no response
So where do I go from here? In response to several searches I've tried running with pulseaudio on and off (with reboots) and still nothing. Is there a simple command line check on the QJackCtl app which will see if anything is getting to this point as I believe that this is where it is alll falling over.
With much thanks for any help
