Pulse Audio Problem


Good Evening!!!
Could someone help me to run alsa in an old Mobo Asus P4S800-MX. After alsaconf and alsamixer there is a:

#alsamixer
ALSA lib pulse.c:229pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: Connection refused


And it's part of lsmod output:

snd_seq_dummy 6788 0
snd_seq_oss 33408 0
snd_seq_midi_event 10240 1 snd_seq_oss
snd_seq 50928 5 snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi_

soundcore 10080 1 snd

"Googling" I found a tip about use of via module 8200 to solve the problem. But it is not occurred. What can I do now?

Slackware doesn't come with pulseaudio. You installed it manually? If so, exactly what did you install. Did you start up pulseaudio? If so, did it give you any errors?

No, I don't install it. Before post LQ I read a lot of google pages. Then... Maybe it 's a digress, but I'm using dropline gnome. Do you tnink it can be a problem?

Go to Dropline GNOME for support then. Not us. Pulseaudio was part of their GNOME distribution, and they are responsible for supporting it (their GNOME distribution).

BTW, the GNOME distribution I would recommmend is GnomeSlackBuild.

I agree with dugan. However, in the spirit of being helpful (I hope), you might want to read my thread from a while back about my experiences with pulse audio in Slackware.

Actually, I think I know how to solve your problem.

Is your user account part of the audio group?

When you're in a terminal window, type groups and see if audio is listed.

If it's not, become root and execute the following command, then log out and log back in:

Code:
gpasswd -a username audio

I'm trying Dropline Forum support, but no replies yet. Then I saw that Pulse Audio can be change to Esd (original)in broken distro .This can be done in slacware /usr ?

For Distros where PulseAudio output is broken Edit For Distros where PulseAudio output is broken sectionEdit

As PulseAudio is a ESD replacement, the ESD plugin can work in cases where PulseAudio support is missing or broken. First remove the MPD PulseAudio setting. Configure MPD to use esd as shown, this assumes that MPD and PulseAudio are running on the same system.

audio_output {
type "ao"
driver "esd"
options "host=127.0.0.1:16001"
name "esd"
}

Another solution found at Ubuntuforums.org is to replace the "ao" with "pulse", which works in some cases where ao fails.

audio_output {
type "pulse"
driver "esd"
options "host=localhost"
name "esd"
}

Why did you completely ignore troubleshooting procedures and possible solution I posted in #6? If you did try them and they not work, then you should have reported what happened and how you knew they failed.

Here is another thread on the same topic. It offers other solutions You can ignore it too.

I don't know why you even asked for help if you're going to ignore every recommendation posted.

Sorry! In fact, root and normal users are audio group.

#vi /etc/group
...
audio:x:17:root,normal
video:x:18:root,normal
cdrom:x:19:root,normal...
...
plugdev:x:83:root,normal
...
users:x:100:
console:x:101:
avahi:x:85:
polkituser:x:73:
pulse:x:230:
realtime:x:231:
pulsea:x:232:




Interesting... I'm having card that I believe uses modules (Intel 8x0 or 8200) disable by blacklist. What dou you think about it?

# vi /etc/modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0


# vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

# ALSA modules to support sound modems. These should be loaded manually
# if needed. For most people they just break sound support...
blacklist snd-atiixp-modem
#blacklist snd-intel8x0m
#blacklist snd-via82xx-modem


aplay -l

Hi dugan!!! I 'm afraid, hehhe!!

After alsamixer -c 0comman, graphics controls ran. I adjust it but don't get sound yet.

During Pulse Audio Slackbuilds process there was a lib dependency which caused a strange otput:

...
/sbin/ldconfig: /lib/libsndfile.so.1 is for unknown machine 36902.

/sbin/ldconfig: /lib/libsndfile.so.1.0.19 is for unknown machine 36902

---

Is it important correct it to the problem?
