I had run alsamixer and the 2 masters were turned up all the way - the other settings were down all the way. I turned up all the other settings and now I have sound.

Not to offend, but are you sure that you have the speakers plugged into the right holes, ie. the ones for the pci card and not the ones for the on-board sound? Also, if you plug headphones into the card do you get sound?

Actually I was wondering if someone would ask this...and yes I am sure. I am running a dual boot configuration with windows. My speakers are hooked up properly and work well in windows...actually when I was first troubleshooting, I cranked them all the way up to attempt to get something faint thinking maybe the driver had changed...and...of course nothing.

If I can get a vote to wipe out slackware and do a fresh reinstall, I'll do it. I don't have anything on here really anyways.

Theoretically I should be at the same point where I am at...but never know. When/if I do it, I'll post the selections / options I made.

Well, I have sound, but when I turn the speakers to higher levels, the sounds get lost in some backgorund noise. On other distros, this doesn't happen, so it's not a hardware related problem. My soundcard is an onboard one:
Code:
bash-3.1# lspci | grep Audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)
Also, drivers are listed as loaded:
Code:
bash-3.1# lsmod

soundcore               9824  1 snd
snd_page_alloc         11528  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm
This happens on a freshly instaled 12.0, with previous I had no such problem.
Any help, please?

After that, my mp3's played but my CD's wont work when I use KsCD.
Roughedge: I believe the KsCD default configuration requires your audio cable to be connected from your CD drive to your sound card. If this is why it isn't working, then what may fix it is to click on "Extras" and go to "Configure KsCD..." and check the box under CD-ROM device which says "Use direct digital playback" and choose the correct device.

It's been a while since I played a CD (already ripped them to mp3,) but I believe it was a similar fix which got it working for me previously. Good luck!

If you have onboard sound AND are using an installable card try

1. Disabling it in the bios
2. Running alsaconfig to ensure only one card is detected

I am sure some more experienced people here will be able to tell you quickly if that may be the problem.
You're forgiven. No, more like, you're my hero of the day.
Thanks for the hint. Disabling the other sound card in the BIOS did the trick (although I've never had this problem before).Thanks!

tanaselia: Sorry for my stupid question, but what does
Code:
lspci | grep audio
give? (yes with a small 'a')

I have an Audigy 2 ZS and I've had this problem before where sound doesn't work with other versions of Slackware. If you go on to alsa-mixer, there's some setting (I forget which) that has something to do with external sound or digital sound out ?or 3d sound? or something along those lines. It's one of those "mute" or "unmute" options. If you toggle the right one, then you should get sound. Assuming of course your volumes are not muted and zeroed, the right device is selected and your speakers are plugged in, etc. Just to double check.

I'll probably be installing a new copy of slackware soon so I'll try to see if I have problems.

Going back a ways so forgive me if my memory is fuzzy on this...

I think the audigy has a analogue/digital toggle. Look near the very end of alsamixer and make sure it's set correctly for the type of speakers you have. I've also run into problems with Live cards and dual boot where the speaker and headphone jacks get swapped after being in windows. So after checking the A/D settings try the headphone jack as well.

EDIT: Whups this is almost a repeat of the previous post.. seems I replied from page 1 not noticing the second page.. oh well

I had some issues with The Audigy Card as well...I left this thread and started this one...

Maybe this can allieviate some things.
