Cedar or anyone can you please help me too? I'm sorry but I really want this to work.

I have the same exact problem as the person who started this thread except I have an nForce 2 on-board sound. (Same problem did happen when I disabled that and used a Sound Blaster Audigy card instead). The SB Audigy is now removed and onboard is re-enabled. Fresh install of Mandriva LE 2005... (note that sound works in Ubuntu 5.04 and worked in Windows when I *used* to run it ). I am still kind of a newbie to Linux command line etc. so please be patient. I need help though!

I hope this helps, please advise. Note I tried alsaconf and it (and setup/install) did detect my audio correctly, but still not working. I have tried changing via GUI to all the various things - OSS, Alsa, different drivers, etc. I don't know what else to do. Please advise! Thank you.

If you are kubuntu then you have the KDE desktop in front you. If go the menu and select "System Settings->Sound Card Detection" it will ask you for the root password and then setup sound for you.

Ok I've managed to get my sound card to work. 10x cedar
The problem is that after restart, when a I press play button in xmms, it shows window with message that the Output Plugin is not configured and to chek if other prog is blocking sound. After that I run alsaconf and adjust settings. Message is no more shown and song starts. Could this be solved? (Yes it could: in xmms to chose other Output Plugin, but I want to use alsa )

Regards,
Daniel

Got it.
Added in /etc/group at line 17 to look like: "audio::17:{username}" (without quotes)
In my case "audio::17:survivor"

Shadowsa,

I was able to address my sound issues by finally going to http://www.opensound.com/ downloaded the 'no regparm' version and selected the 'windows compatible' (or something like that) sound card once i was running the configure program (and after trying nearly all the other drivers).

This has worked just fine - I've had no problems with any programs. Plays mp3, wav, ogg. The only modification I still need to make is to have the driver load before KDE - apparently there is a conflict which requires me to run the 'soundon' command ('soundon' is a command that comes with the downloaded driver) for the driver, after a reboot to get the sounds working again.

The driver license is $20, but it runs for free for 3 months (and apparently can be re-downloaded and re-installed every 3 months to run on the free license). For $20, it seems worth the trouble.

For review: my system is a Gateway 2500 solo, with the nm256av sound card, running Kubuntu, kernel 2.6.10-5

hope this helps.
