How to set up ALSA on gentoo with an ali-5451?
I just recently finished installing gentoo on my laptop, and everything works perfectly. However, I can't seem to set up the sound properly. I compiled all the modules necessary (I think) but when I try to launch esd I get the error message "audio_alsa: no cards found!"
How do you set it up properly, and which modules do you need to load, and in what order?
This is really annoying, as everything works fine otherwise. The acpi, the cpu frequency modules, compilations...
Thanks for helping out
did you check the alsa how-to a gentoo.org ? Also the forums there have a ton of stuff re alsa. What kernel are you using 2.6.x ? Are you drivers compiled in the kernel correctly or as modules ?
did you try :
# /etc/inid.d/alsasound start
as root ?
Gentoo is a great distribution.. have fun.
well that's where I probably have a problem : /etc/init.d/alsasound doesn't exist on my system!
Also, I get these errors when trying to compile alsa-tools :
hdspconf.cxx: In function `void refresh_cb(void*)':
hdspconf.cxx:77: error: `H9632' undeclared (first use this function)

Can you help me?
/etc/init.d/alsasound is in package alsa-utils, not alsa-tools
/etc/init.d/alsasound comes with package alsa-utils:
mdb$ equery belongs /etc/init.d/alsasound
* Searching for /etc/init.d/alsasound ...
NB equery is from package gentoolkit.
Double-check the loudness controls (hardware) on Your laptop, I missed on this with an old Laptop with ali5451 and had no sound at all... :-(
