Unhappy No Sound from Audigy card on 10.2


I've just installed mandriva 2005 from DVD, I had the previous version installed before. Anyway I have no error messages but my sound card no longer works. It worked fine with the last version.

Mandrake Control Center says:

Vendor: ‎Creative Labs
Description: ‎SB0400 Audigy2 Value

Driver
Module: ‎snd-emu10k1
Alternative drivers: ‎audigy, emu10k1


Here's the relevant info from 'cat /proc/pci' :
Bus 0, device 12, function 0:
Class 0401: PCI device 1102:0008 (rev 0).
IRQ 5.

alias snd-0 snd-emu10k1


I have no idea how to troubleshoot this, would appreciate any help! Thanks!

In this case do the following:
Open console=>
If you want to set your sound perfectly (in case of 5.1) then do this one:
$ su -
# alsamixer
Configure bars with arrows, enable or disable service with "m" key.
wave, wave center, wave surround, center, surround, PCM=> All the way UP
AC97=> Down, down, down. and stay down
ALL LFE=> Down, down, down. and stay down
Master=> 75% Up (check if it's ON)
When done ESC
#alsactl store
Logout
Login
P.S. If you have 5.1 speaker system, be sure that LFE channels bars are all way down and [off]. LFE channel is to generate 5.1 emulation matrix on 4 speaker systems.


After running this command (alsactl store) your custom swill be stored in alsa configuration and restarted automaticly every reboot.

This is incorrect. LFE stands for "Low Frequency Effects" and is the channel that controls your subwoofer.
On a 5.1 system only turn this off if you don't want any bass at all.

It's correct according to Asus E1292 User's Manual

Talking

In alsamixer, there are only a few levels that aren't about 75%:
Looks like the problem was the IEC Optical Raw (It was Off). Thanks for all the help though!

So to recap, I wasted lots of time but I should have just tried everything in alsamixer I guess... anyway thanks again!
