Angry Can Someone Help Me???


i can get sound with the pre2 kernel, but not with a beta3 or 4 kernel. i enable the oss modules and the modules corresponding with my sound card and codecs i have. they all load with no errors, yet when i want to listen to something, i get no sound.

is there NO ONE out there who can help me?

Have you checked your mixers to see if your volume is turned up.

Have you tried ALSA? That always works for me.

they're called 'pre' and 'beta' for a reason. things are changing and not all stuff works. search or file a bug report at http://bugme.osdl.org/

i knew that would get someone's attention. well, i submitted a bug report at bugs.gentoo.org and was told that i shouldn't have alsa-drivers and alsa in the kernel at the same time. hence, i have sound now. thank you though for the link, i will use it the next time i need it and no one seems to want to help here.
