How to do all that,,
I go to sessions from the menu and disable startup thig because I used to work it all the time,
Now it's off,
How to do that oss thing ?
I tried to change it from xmms, Still not working .
No sound comes out .
What to do ?
when you login to kde, is arts actually running?
You can check by
in a terminal. Maybe it does not start at login and that's why you need to starts artscontrol (which will force the arts to start as well).
This will show you a list of options that you can use with this command.
The option that looks good for you is
artsd -a <audioiomethod>
( The -a option specifies what sound system you want to use with aRts...like OSS, or ALSA..etc)
However, check what other options are relavent in your case from the list. that appears in help
2. You can enable aRts to start at the time of system startup too.
go to Preferences - > Sound
and check the box before
"Enable sound server startup"
The second step is valid only for RedHat 9.....In Mandrake, you can check this box from the "Control Center"
However, I would like to tell you something more....
I dont think you need aRts....If there is no sound....then you need to do the following things:
(a) First load the module for your sound card with the command
example modprobe opl3sa2
(I have the yamaha Opl3 sa3 sound card)
(b) now give the command
Configure the DMA settings and IRQ for your sound card with this command. If you dont know the DMA and IRQ settings, check the settings in MS Windows....if you have a dual boot.....
In windows you will find these settings as follows:
Right Click My Computer -> Propeties -> Device Manager -> Sound, Video and Game Controllers -> Select your sound card model and click the 'Properties' button. That will display the DMA and IRQ settings for your soundcard.
It will then play a test sound....which you should be able to hear, provided, the sound module is loaded in memory.
If the above 2 steps work for you, then you need to place the " modprobe <your-sound-card-model-name> " command in the file /etc/modules.conf script to initialize sound at startup.
looks like you have an on-board standard AC 97 compatible Intel_810. I think I saw this same problem before back when I was running Redhat8, I shut down while XMMS was still running and when I started back up XMMS sound was all hosed up, think what I did in the end was uninstall XMMS and re-install it again and that fixed the problem.
This was almost a year ago so I can`t remember for sure and I don`t run Redhat anymore cause I mostly switched to Debian based distro`s now.
