No sound until I mixer/volume control


I dont have any sound until I load mixer. I dont need to change any of the volumes or anything but the sound just comes on as soon as I load up the mixer.

Any Ideas?

Which mixer? Might be that you aren't loading a sound server? Which distro?

Are you using ALSA?

If nothing else, maybe by sticking:
/path/to/sound/server
In your /etc/rc.local (does RH still have that?)

So that during boot up, the server is started.

Just an idea...

Cool

Hey C I am using Red Hat 9 Kernal 2.4.20-9 (its under my dist info) I dont know anything about what sound server I am using or anything, just the standard stuff that came with my dist... what can I type to give you more info on this?

I am guessing the below is not really the actually literally what i am supposed to put in my In your /etc/rc.local (which RH still has). I dont know where my sound server is and even what one I am using!

/path/to/sound/server

Hmm... Probably easier to tell by which mixer. However, if this is ANY mixer, then maybe it's simply ANY server you need to start...

Code:
bash-2.05a$ whereis esd
esd: /usr/bin/esd /usr/etc/esd.conf /usr/include/esd.h /usr/man/man1/esd.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/esd.1.gz
That's the ESound server daemon, then you have:
Code:
bash-2.05a$ whereis artsd
artsd: /opt/kde/bin/artsd
Which is KDE's sound server.

HTH

Although, maybe (and probably actually) you'll have better luck at trying ALSA and getting that going for your card.

Cool

I have installed ALSA

I have installed ALSA ummm when I type out those commands I get very similar results from yours... what does that tell me? What would be the command line command to set the volumes etc.... I hope there I wont have caused any trouble just installed ALSA when what ever it was before installed was there.

Thanks
Adam
