Sound issue slack10.1 and intel onboard card


I installed the brand new slackware 10.1 in a HP/Compaq evo desktop every thing goes fine except the sound that doesn't work. I tried a couple of tips that I have found here at "the do not allow me to put the F&*% URL" but not of them worked. I wondering if some one have already solved this prbblem. Below one can see more details:

hi there,

did you run "alsaconf" ???
what is the output??
did you compile your kernel by yourself or is the original PV kernel??
is it 2.4X or 2.6x ???
more input.. please..
the output of your dmesg has nothing to do with your sound problem...
regards

Smile the fact is

Yes i have already run alsaconf. It apparently detected and configured my sound card but unfortunatelly it doesn't work. I tried some tips given in the thread "Sound issues in slackware 10.1" but doesn't works too. I tried to unmute all channels using alsamixer and: Guess what?! nothing hapens. I don't know guys but it is truely driving me crazy. A friend of mine showed me that a apparently a module needed by my sound card can not be loaded I don't get the point. He told me to execute this command:

########################################
#modprobe -v i810_audio

/lib/modules/2.4.29/kernel/drivers/sound/i810_audio.o.gz: insmod i810_audio failed
########################################


But the module seens to be there

########################################

########################################

my kernel is 2.4.49, It was the first in the menu option when installing the distribution. My desktop is a compaq/HP evo D31vm.


Tks for the replyies,

Out of curiosity, exit X back into CLI, look for an mp3 to play, and try playing it with AMP (cli mp3 player). See if you get sound there. Lets try to isolate the problem to either a big one, or a kde one

And i think you're refering to 2.4.29 btw.

i guess i810_audio module is oss.
if you already have alsa modules loaded ( snd-intel8x0 ) then
the other won't load.

but you don't need it as you're using alsa.

there is hope?

Im afraid weve got a big one. Each time I tried a new configuration I tested to play my Smurf_theme.mp3 file using mpeg123, if is that what you meant.

I am very glad to hear from you all so soon

Fixed

After many problems with the Intel 810 card I finally found a fix. It is a script that WORKS:

Unhappy here we go again

I actually couldn't understanding what you meant, what I did:

1 I created a ~/.asound using a normal user acount
2 I put the content given in your website to this file
3 I rebooted the host
4 nothing different happened


I don't know for sure but I can't see how a script to mix sound chanels could help me if my problem is the module initialization.


Thanks for trying to help me

Try blacklisting the module for the modem sound (snd-intel8x0m) as described in the last post of that thread mentioned two posts up. I have the same soundcard and this works for me every time.

I tried but doesn't work. Maybe the module name for blacklisting is not the same.

hi there,

some questions:

1. did you make a custom or a default installation? did you include the alsa-driver and alsa-library?
2. when you try to play something, let's say xmms/mpg321 what exactly is the behaviour? error messages or nothing?
3. are you using hotplug?
4. artsd is running?

regards

2 - Running mpg123 or xmms using libarts.so i get the same behavior. Appearantly the music is playing but I can't hear nothing. I tried to unmute some chanels but nothing hapens.

3- Yes I am using hotplug.

4- How can I figure out if rts is running?
