Es1869 Sound Card: Mute


I used sb to detect my ES1869F ISA sound card installed in my old Deskpro EN Compaq PC. sb was able to detect my card using its default settings but when I tried playing CD audio to test, ... IT'S MUTE, even the volume is at full setting.

I'm using Slack 10 and KDE 3.3. Did I still miss something that need to work on to?

Thanks for any help..

(I love using Slackware, it' fast and stable though can't play me audio!)

don't forget `alsactl store` has to be done as root.

Why there is no alsaconfig - command not found? I even reinstalled alsa packages.

I'm running this on XTerm.

Yes I have done that already by uncommenting that line in rc.modules. It was detected using that settings but I still can't hear any from my speakers.

When I tried alsactl store, it said that no sound card found.

I'm out of my box now and its Saturday today here I can give it on Monday instead. Its on dmesg actually as ES1869 chip. That means it's loaded by the kernel.

I'm now playing audio while typing this post.

In my rc.modules it goes this way:

### OSS Sound support ###
### (Old Sound System ;-)
# Sound Blaster Pro/16 support:
/sbin/modprobe sb io=0x220 irq=5 dma=3 dma16=5 mpu_io=0x300
# Sound Blaster Live support:
#/sbin/modprobe emu10k1

problems with MP3

I have an ES1869 in an Armada 1700 and configured everything the way that you guys did and I can play cd audio just fine. I cannot seem to get MP3's to play. I get an error message saying to make sur my sound card is configured correctly.

Also this is the message I get from dmesg after boot:

isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
isapnp: No Plug & Play device found
Soundblaster audio driver Copyright (C) by Hannu Savolainen 1993-1996
sb: No ISAPnP cards found, trying standard ones...
sb: dsp reset failed.
scsi0 : SCSI host adapter emulation for IDE ATAPI devices
Linux Kernel Card Services 3.1.22
options: [pci] [cardbus] [pm]
isapnp: Scanning for PnP cards...
isapnp: No Plug & Play device found
Intel ISA PCIC probe: not found.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I haven't tried playing MP3 yet. What media player you're using?

in your xmms choose Options, preferences, audio plugin.
If you have configured your sound card the way shown in this thread, you have to choose Arts, Oss, or Esound.
I don't know how is in slack 10 but in 9.1 there was a bug with esd (or I think so). esd package comming with the distro didn't work and I had to install the package from 9.0.
Luck

I'm using XMMS and have set all the inputs and output options. I've also tried other player and none seem to work. As far as I can tell, it is only MP3's as I can play audio files.
