Slackware 10 Nforce2 Sound alsamixer shows tv card


Hey guys I see that quite a few people seem to be having problems with Slackware 10 and alsa. My particular problem is that I donīt have sound. I tried alsaconf and it finds my nForce2 sound and automatically sets it up.

When I use alsamixer ... it only comes up with the volume controls for my tv capture card??? Does anyone have any idea how I can make alsamixer see my nForce2 onboard sound instead??

Thanks
Adam

Did you try the alsamixer -c option

Code:
-c <card number or idenfication>  
Select the soundcard to use, if you have more than one. 
Cards are numbered from 0 (the default).
Try alsamixer -c 1

Hey w3edr5t thanks for the tip! What I found was confusing things anyways was compiling that I depeciated sound modules along with the alsa ones so I removed them and also removed the module for my tvcard as I donīt use its volume control (Just have cable from the tvcard to my normal sound card) I kind of did all this just to keep things simple!!

Thanks again for your tip you have shown me somthing I didnīt know you could do with alsa

lol, I got confused on exactly the same point but luckily I don't use my radio nor the sound from the sound card - it's a mono input so I just ignore it and plug the TV sound directly into line in. So I just didn't modprobe that side of things and alsamixer defaulted to my sound card...bit of a roundabout way of doing it though!

Good that it works for you now jimdaworm

I discovered it when alsa was reporting "No mixer elems found".
The cause was a modem which alsa registered as the first sound device(device 0).
When using "alsamixer -c 1" it worked well for me.

regards
Ter

i had the same exact problem with my sound and tv tuner. I ended up recompiling the kernel to exclude the tv tuner sound support, since i have the little loop cable into the sound card.

Good to hear you have all sorted it out too! I am on my way to having a working computer again with everything I need! (Just installed unreal tournament). I was a little confused for a while about xfree...!

Quick question... this might sound stupid... but where do I find the source for the 2.6.7 kernel and on which one of the cds??

2.6.7 is on cd2.

The path should be:
/testing/packages/linux-2.6.7/kernel-source-2.6.7-noarch-1.tgz.asc
