various sound cards detected but not working after PuppyOffice203ce install
ran into some sound problems after re-installing puppy (I wanted to do an update, but I could not get x to work properly afterwards, so I wiped it off completely). I am now working with Puppy Office 203ce.
Before, I had Puppy Version 1.0.9. My Soundcards were not recognized, but alsa-config solved parts of this problem when run manually.
Now alsa-config shows the following options:
nm256 01:00.1 Class 0401: 10c8:8005 (rev20)
, but does totally fail doing something useful with either of them. That's old news, actually, but before reinstalling I could work around that by probing for some obscure legacy 8-bit soundchips, what then worked fine. Unfortunately it does not do the trick any more ("no legacy chips available")...
Oh, and when starting alsa-config, there is a notification:
"cp: copying multiple files, but last argument '/lib/modules/2.4.29/sound is not a directory"
Has anybody any idea how to work a way around this? I would do nearly everything to avoid switching back to windows, but I need working sound.
