Sound not working in Debian.


Hi.

When I check the setting in the GNOME sound manager I get the following error:

audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audioresample ! gconfaudiosink profile=chat: Could not open audio device for playback. Device is being used by another application.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Try running alsaconf as root, and setting up the device.

Hi.

Alsaconf works, however sound fails to work when the machine is rebooted, and I have to re-run alsconf again. Is this normal? If not, how do I fix it?

Thanks

It's been a while for me, so you'll have to forgive me for forgetting to mention it, but after you run alsaconf and alsamixer run alsactl store as root.

The alsactl store saves the settings for next boot.
