Yeah,

I'm still without cd-audio output too, although everything else works like a charm with the emu10k1 driver I'm using. I'm just waiting for official Audigy 2 support from the guys @ Alsa.
I'm still not sure if my problem is purely driver related, but I haven't got a clue what else it could be.
When I really want to listen to a cd, I just have to rip the whole thing so at least I can listen to it.

Eric

p.s. btw, Oswald what kind of sound card do you have ?

it's an i810 problem, it is using Intel chip 82801DB, which Intel says is supported going from 2.5.11 on, but I do not want to play with an experimental kernel right now.

Good news. Sort of. I have some success now with that cable hooked up to my sound card to my CD Rom drive using XINE, I can play CDs. But I cannot eject the CD correctly. I get this error from alsa. Any ideas?

I *think* it is because you unmounted the volume prior stopping the alsa driver

There was some screwy stuff, as kscd kept trying to play my CD for me, and it just hung, so I disabled it from starting up.

I am able to do an "eject cdrom" without a problem from the command line, but XINE won't let it go (actually it's probably alsa doing that as you mentioned Thetargos.

You might as well need to restart xine, if not the alsa driver hangs to it. I know this can be annoying having to restart the application every time you want to swap a disk. Try that. I do not know if just stopping the sound will force Xine to "let go" the alsa driver and restart it.

Yeah, I think my final compromise is as follows:

1. Use xine to load my audio CD and enjoy the songs
2. Run "eject cdrom" from an xterm and then repeat #1 for another CD

The eject cdrom button is "busted" on xine, as alsa does not want to release the app.

Thanks for all your help.

Do you have a /dev/cdrom device?? I know Kscd and Xmms look for that. You mentioned you had /dev/dvd, but Kscd won't look there. There should be a symlink from /dev/cdrom pointing to something.

Ignore me.. I didn't realize there was a second page of posts..

Actually the good news is that Red Hat 9's kernel supports my card because I guess ALSA is build into it. The 2.4.20 kernel that comes with the distribution is great, and with nVidia's new module, my problems are basically solved now!

A minor correction here. The kernel 2.4.20-8 (which is RH 9's default) does not include ALSA built into the kernel, it still relies on OSS. But yes it is great... Although I have been getting strange ALSA compile errors with the new kernel 2.4.20-9 I thihnk is a problem with the kernel, I'll just have to wait for a new official RH release )

I have a SB Live! soundcard and I'm using the EMU10K1 driver as a module. I experience all the above problems. It may not be your chipset.

I now have solved my problem!!! (yippie!!)

1. Installed a new 2.4.21 clean kernel (compiled using as a model the options enabled in the RH one), compiled the latest ALSA driver, utilities, tools and OSS-emulation, changed my modules.conf et voilą.

At first I did not know why ALSA kept forgetting my settins, but it has to do with the fact that in the alsamixer the channles are muted!! so after you install you *must* run alsamixer to unmute the channels, just load the module snd-emu10k1 and you will be able to launch alsamixer.
