Installing ALSA


Hi. I installed Alsa-base (apt-get install alsa-base) and alsa-utils (apt-get install alsa-utils). I ran alsaconf, but it couldn't find my soundcard. I have a Soundblaster Live! 24-bit sound card, and according to Alsa's website it's supported. Is there anything that I forgot to install.

I'm using Debian Testing with a 2.6 kernel.

Can you post the output of lspci and lsmod?

Oops, my initial answer was for a 2.4 kernel series, not 2.6, which I just noticed you have. So, I've now deleted it. Anyway, perhaps installing the kernel headers would help. Rebooting often does wonders. Good luck.

The Rockwell is the integrated sound, which has terrible linux support. The Creative Labs SB Audigy LS (Sound Blaster Live!) is the card I just installed.

Try running the command modprobe snd-ca0106 if you get no errors then run alsamixer and raise (and unmute) all volume levels. Then try to play something.

If the snd-ca0106 module doesn't work then try snd-emu10k1 and snd-emu10k2.

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device
aumix doesn't work either.

Firstly, do you have anything in "/dev/snd/"? There should be a large list of files. Mine looks like:

Secondly, make sure you're part of the "audio" group. Just edit /etc/group and add your username to the appropriate line. Then log out and log back in.

Well in that case all I can think of the recommend is installing ALSA from source. That's what I do and I've never had a problem.

Mind you... You said you had an SB Live when lspci shows it as being an Audigy LS. However, Audigies are meant to be supported by the ca0106 driver as indicated here but it wouldn't load for you (I'm assuming since you didn't say specifically). However the emu10k1 driver did load which is the SB Live (and therefore not the Audigy LS) driver. Wierd.

Isn't the SB Live 24-bit based of of the Audigy LS? According to http://how.to/sblive.
Quote:
Most SoundBlaster Live, Audigy, and Audigy 2 cards are supported by the EMU10K1 Project driver as well as ALSA.

I tried to run alsaconf again, and it finally detected my sound card!

Here are the choices:
ca0106 Creative Labs SB Audigy LS
legacy probe legacy ISA (non-PnP) chips

I select the SB card and pressed enter. Now I get this:
Configuring snd-ca0106
Do you want to modify /etc/modprob.d/sound
(And /etc/modprobe.conf if present)?
<yes> <no>

I select 'yes' and press enter.
"OK, sound driver is configured.
ALSA CONFIGURATOR
will prepare the card for playing now.
Now I will load the ALSA sound driver and use amixer to raise the default sound volumes.
You can change the volume later via a mixer.
<ok>

I select and press ok.

Running update-modules...
Loading Driver...
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:09.0[A] -> Link [LNKB] - > GSI 9 (Level, low) - > IRQ9
Model 1006 Rev 00000000 Serial 10061102
Setting up ALSA...
Setting default volumes...

===

Now ALSA is ready to use
Blah Blah Have a lot of fun!

#
# aumix
Aumix: no device found.

I still get the same errors as before.

Can you post the output of lsmod after running alsaconf? Make sure you're not trying to load two separate types of drivers (and that the drivers are actually loaded).

Also, try using alsamixer instead of aumix.

sound card

Disclaimer: I'm no programmer.
Claimer: I'm a regular user who's had loads of experience messing around getting sound to work on Debian.

Try these following things:
  • Install the package alsa-oss
  • Run alsaconf three times over.
  • If using a gnome interface, add the volume control to the panel.
  • Try the sound. If it's not working . . .
  • Power down, and turn off your computer.
  • Go to the pub, and drink a pint.
  • Come back, and turn on your computer.
  • Now, either listen to sound, or repeat all these steps again.

Good luck.
