Slack 14.0 - Audio issue


Hey,

So I have fresh install of Slackware 14.0 and I'm experiencing little problems with sound.
Googled for a while but found everything too confusing / stuff I tried didn't work.
I'm using ALSA, I haven't installed any drivers expect ATI's repository for video card.
Also sound in wine and in browser doesn't work. Also '#cat MusicFile.mp3 > /dev/audio' command plays some sound but when I have i.e music player playing some music I get this error after running same command:
'bash: /dev/audio: Device or resource busy'.
edit: my soundcard are integrated




I have these notifications:

Can you first post the output of these tools:

lsmod |grep snd

cat /proc/asound/cards

You may require using the official ATI/AMD Proprietary driver to get your HDMI audio working.

And I already have ATI's driver for my video card but after googling wasn't able to find anything suitable (audio driver for linux).

The Intel_HDA driver should work for most HDMI products out there.

Can you open and run MPlayer with the ALSA settings directed at the "default" audio device, and get any audio that way? If not...

First, you'll need to create an ALSA configuration file in /etc/modprobe.d named snd-intel-hda.conf like this one:

Code:
# ALSA portion
       alias char-major-116 snd
       alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
       alias snd-card-1 snd-hda-intel
       alias snd-card-2 snd-hda-intel
       # module options should go here
       options snd-hda-intel model=auto
       
# OSS/Free portion - card #1 (HDA-Intel - HDA ATI SB)
       alias char-major-14 soundcore
       alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
       alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
       alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
       alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
       alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
       alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

# OSS/Free portion - card #2 (HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI)
       alias sound-slot-1 snd-card-1
       alias sound-service-1-0 snd-mixer-oss
       alias sound-service-1-3 snd-pcm-oss
       alias sound-service-1-12 snd-pcm-oss

# OSS/Free portion - card #3 (HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI)
       alias sound-slot-2 snd-card-2
       alias sound-service-1-0 snd-mixer-oss
       alias sound-service-1-3 snd-pcm-oss
       alias sound-service-1-12 snd-pcm-oss
Next create an .asoundrc file by copying this text into a textfile and make it executable with chmod +x and run it:

Code:
% cat /usr/bin/asoundrc
#!/bin/bash
# asoundrc v0.1.0 20090101 markc@renta.net GPLv3
# asoundrc v0.2.0 20090320 quatro_por_quatro@yahoo.es GPLv3
#
# A simple script to create a particular default audio device regardless
# of what cards are loaded or in what order. It could be used anytime or
# placed in a ~/.bashrc script for a persistent setup every login.
#
# Usage: asoundrc [DEFAULT_CARD] > ~/.asoundrc

# use the first parameter as the card name, or else
# look for the sound card, discarding those that are only microphones
# when there are multiple cards, use the first one
if default_card="${1:-$(cat "$(for f in $(ls -1 /proc/asound/card[0-9]*/{midi,codec}* 2>/dev/null); do echo "${f%/*}"; done \
| sed -e '\|^[\[:blank:]\]$|d' -e 'q')/id" 2>/dev/null)}"; then
   echo "Using sound card: ${default_card}" >&2 
   cat /proc/asound/card[0-9]*/id | \
   gawk --assign default_card="${default_card}" \
'{print "pcm."$1" { type hw; card "$1"; }\nctl."$1" { type hw; card "$1"; }" }
END {print "pcm.!default pcm."default_card"\nctl.!default ctl."default_card}'
else
   echo "Warning: No sound cards found." >&2
fi
This should create an .asoundrc in your $HOME folder. That may look something like this (EXAMPLE ONLY):

Code:
       pcm.hda-intel {
          type hw
          card 0
       }
       
       ctl.hda-intel {
          type hw
          card 0
       }
Next check your alsamixer settings for each audio device and ensure they are working and have audio volume level functions. If all looks well, load MPlayer and check the audio against all the outputs with any normal audio file. If you have sound, it should all be working, however, you may be required to set up each program to use the correct devices for audio.
