[arch linux ] Pulse audio,ATI Technologies Inc RV710/730 no card detected


Hello,
I have installed arch linux and try to do pulseaudio according to wiki. But pulseaudio doesn't detect my sound card. I don't have alsa installed. I run
Code:
pacmd list
and it shows that no card is available. Commands
Code:
$ fuser -v /dev/snd/*
$ fuser -v /dev/dsp
returns nothing. I try to google but cannot find solution. Can any one help?
Best regards

Is it a PCI sound card? Use the command lspci to see if it's in there.

I'd install alsa and see what your results are. If you can verify the card's usability, you can work on pulseaudio later, and once you get that nailed, you can remove or disable alsa.

If you post the specs on your sound card, someone can determine if it's supported hardware under your version of arch, unless you've already confirmed that.

The sound card is supported and is working I use arch system 1 month before and everythink works perfectly. Here is the full output of lspci which tells about sound card
Code:
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV710/730
So now when I am sure that this card can be set with pulsesudio still try to install alsa?

From what you've told me, nothing wrong with your hardware and no OS compatibility problems. So keep working at it, however, it also depends on how fast you need sound. Sometimes if I can't solve a problem, I have to stop working on it for a while.

Maybe someone with more knowledge of pulseaudio and arch will come by soon to help you with this. Good luck...
