problem in sound configuration


My problem is on my having no sound on my Red Hat Linux i386-9 system. I test the sound card, its okay, I hear sound on both channels, but when I play music (.cdda, .wav, .mp3) using my DVD/CD-RW drive it has no sound but the audio cd player plays. Pls help.

Are you certain there's a cable connecting your dvd/cd to your soundcard?

Yes there is. Proof is when I boot in WinXP (dual boot) there is sound of my cd player .

Your "surmise" is wrong.

I believe that I'm correct in saying that windows picks up the sound output from the devices from the ide cables, and not the audio cables as per linux.

You will probably have to open the box and see - I can get sound from both my cdrw and dvd drives under windows, but when in linux, only the cdrw, cos that's the drive with the audio cable from the drive to the sound card.

If you open your box, you could check to see if there is facility for your sound device (card/chip/whatever) to have multiple (well at least 2) connections from drives (like a total idiot, I forgot to check last time I had my box open), if so then you should be able to just plug the second device in and "off you go".

Failing that, I understand that the very latest version of XMMS (1.2.8 I think) has the ability to pick up output from devices digitally (as opposed to analogue i.e. no audio connection made) but you would have to check this out it's got something to do with /dev/dsp and no, I have only read about this, not tried it yet

regards

John

alcanon,
bigjohn is correct. Windows will configure sound without the audio cable attached fromthe sound card to the CR-R. In linux you must connect the cable properly.
GOOD LUCK !

Thanks bigjohn, krissly1, thereof. Got my cdplay working. I just transfered my audio cable connection to a vacant jack in my sound card.

Regarding mp3, is there a chance i can play it also? It seems Red Hat don't support playing mp3.
