damn, this is annoying, i looked around the sound seetings, to no avail. it sucks when only amsn's sounds work, atleast i nkow that my sound card is set up properly. so are there any other suggestions as to why this doesnt work?? by the way, i added the following to my /etc/rc.d/rc.modules:

C-Media Electronics Inc CM8738:
/sbin/modprobe cmpci

under "Sound Support", is this correct?

yeah, that entry in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules should do it (oss)...


what's the output of "lsmod" now?


is arts running??

ps aux | grep arts


you posted earlier that alsaconf wouldn't find your card... what version of alsa are you running???

let's have a look at /etc/fstab, and just checking, do you have a cable running from the cdrom to the motherboard? (had to ask )

if your sure you have the sound cable running from the cdrom to the motherboard(sorry had to check) then it's probably a permission problem. if your /etc/fstab looks like this (note: i've only included the relevant parts)

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,owner,ro 0 0

you'll need to edit it as root to look like this (note: again, only relevant parts, donot edit any other lines as it may render your system unbootable, and do not restart your system after making changes)

/dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom iso9660 noauto,user,ro 0 0

the easy way to make this change is to logout as your normal user, login as root, and use whichever text editor your comfortable with. another safer way is from a terminal(from your normal user account) to

Code:
su -
password <your root password>

pico /etc/fstab
pico is a text editor from the command line, i like it, and use it frequently, but, it takes a little gettting used to. you have to be comfortable w/the keyboard, and forget about your mouse. if that's too much for now, just use the first method described, and, post any success/failure. we'll get you listening to cd's.
good luck.

nick_krym: Emerge alsa-utils and emerge alsa... then type alsamixer... goto all sound levels and type m to unmute them and then bring up all sound levels to about 49. Some sound levels will not be able to be moved and that is ok. Hope this helps

your /etc/fstab mounts the disks/drives listed in it. changing the owner(which is root) to user allows the user access to the drive. the cdrom itself had nothing to do w/system sounds, but, the drive was mounted on boot by root, so you have no access to it. hope that makes sense.
good luck.

Question

i'm curious: how did changing /etc/fstab make it so that "all sound is working"???

why did editing the cd-rom entry in /etc/fstab affect kde's or gnome's sound system???

it didn't, it only affected the ability to hear the cd. take a look back at post #10, and 12. the system had sound, just not the cdrom. hope that clears it up.

well, from post #12:

"sounds for things like aMSN work, but i dont hear any sounds while using kde, and io still cant hear playing cd's"

so i figured the problem wasn't only with the cd player, but also with the kde sounds...

anyways, i'm glad it's working now...

i assumed if sound worked for aMSN once the module had been loaded, that the kde system sounds just weren't set to on. sorry, for the confusion on my thought pattern, and i'm glad it's working also.
