Slackware Sound System Corrupted ?


Hello..

I really have to post this problem away I have been fighting with it since I've got slackware now (5 weeks) without any luck so I decided it's the best idea to post it here..


Well it's about my sound system.
First of it all I'd like to say that Linux ALSA etc. found my soundcard so that's not the problem.. my Sound Speakers "sometimes" running perfeclty..

"sometimes" let's define this a little bit better.. After I start up KDE like always I can sometimes listen to music and it doesn't make any strange noises.. It' runs even better then on my Windows machine.. But in some other times "usually after 20 secs" my sound system totally freaks out.. That means it sounds like you are listening to a radio channel where you've got no connection to.

So I started trieng with 3 diffrent Sound Speakers.. All 3 happened to do the same. So I consider that the problem is somewhere in my Sound Configuration..

Can anyone please tell me where I should look for ? & what I should do there ?..

Thanks

Try different versions of ALSA drivers(or kenels), check the ALSA website/mailing for specific information on your sound card(module options etc)

Hey Demonbane

Thanks for your help I am very greatful..

I figured out another way how to "Perfectly" patch my problem.. I went to the Konsole and typed alsamixer and muted the modules (useing "m") IEC958 and IEC958 I.. but now my problem is this changes doesn't keep saved.. when I leave the ALSA GUI (ESC) and run alsactl store. then this settings arn't muted anymore on restarting my X server..

tricky tricky..

what would Linus do ?

He would type
man -k alsa

Find a tool called alsactl
Read
man alsactl

and act accordingly.


Cheers,
Tink

Hey Tinkster..

I know how to store my settings.. my problem is that the settings just be stored if I change the volume or anything else.. but I can not store if I change the IEC958 to muted (off)
