No sound on Slack 10.2 with Audigy 4 and 2.6.20 kernel


Hi all,

I've done a fresh install on my PC that has an Audigy4 sound card. lspci labels it as a 'Creative Labs SB0400 Audigy2 Value' though.

I've have compiled Emu10k1 into my kernel (under Device Drivers --> Sound --> Advanced linux Sound Architecture --> PCI devices), and have enabled the OSS Mixer API and OSS PCM API. In dmesg, I also get the following:

Code:
ALSA device list:
#0: Audigy 4 [SB0610] (rev.0, serial:0x10211102) at 0xc000, irq 20
But I stall can't get any sound. I've ensure the speakers are turned up, and I have run aumix to ensure nothihng is muted... but yet still nothing!

I've tried xmms and VLC and neither give audio output. As the hardware is being found, I think I'm missing something really obvious...

...does anyone have any idea what it might be?

Many thanks,



Mark.

try typing these in as root
"alsaconf","alsamixer" and "alsactl store"
separately without the quotes

Hi Mouse,

When I run alsaconf, it asks me to close all sound apps and stop the sound driver.

Do you know how to stop the driver? Is it by running:

Code:
/etc/rc.d/rc.alsa stop
Either way, it then tells me that it cannot find any supported PNp or PCI cards - however dmesg does show that they are found.

Any ideas?

Well I've figured it out so I thought I'd come back and share...

I discovered that sound works if I ran XMMS when logged on as root, so it was obvious it was a permissions problem.

It appears that the audio group is the owner of /dev/dsp0, which /dev/dsp is symlinked to. So I edited /etc/group and added my user to the audio group.

When I logged back on again under my username I then had sound!
