Mandrake 10 and Sound Issues


I am quite new to linux and have managed to load up the new Mandrake 10 Community. Let me tell you it took forever for me to scrounge this forum and get my video drivers working good, but I am at a loss. I know this has been posted and posted but I absolutely cannot get my soundcard to work.

I have a Audigy Gamer

HardDrake detects it correctly but the driver is not working. I've played a little with the mixer and I cannot figure it out.

Anyway much help would be appreciated.

Thanks Guru's!

Similar problems here. Sound worked just fine in 9.2, but now, after installing Mandrake 10 from scratch I get no sound whatsoever.

The soundcard is a Intel 82801EB, and the driver is snd-intel80x.

A bunch of other modules are loaded, all the volumes are up (there are so many different 'audio mixer' applications...which one would be the right one to use? I guess alsamixer?)

The applications play happily, just I cannot hear anything:-(

Anybody knows how to resolve this?

Thanks a lot

Barnoid

I had a continious beep after a clean mandrake 10 install. Needed to go into konsole and open draksound. Needed to select the emu10k1 driver instead of the snd-emu10k1.

Try it out id say, might even work

Try using the OSS drivers for your soundcards. I had the same problem, no sound in Alsa but I switched to OSS and sound wass fine and the quality just as good.

I'll give those a try when I get home today.

I didn't know about draksound so I will give it a try.

what is the difference between alsa and oss? And how do I switch between them?

in the mandrake control centre (configure your computer)>hardware>hardware> then highlight the sound card, then at the bottom of the right hand pane, you should click "run config tool" which gives you a window that has a dropdown of the sound drivers available to your card.

Because it knows that the kernel version has alsa in it (or however it's termed) it pre select's the alsa driver - the one prefixed with snd- in my case it was snd-emu10k1 for my sound blaster live! 5.1 digital and all I got to start with was the screeching. So I put it back to the OSS driver emu10k1 and it was fine.

regards

John

Thanks for the info. I am trying to run the test in the sound config in KDE. I also have UT2004 installed and I am still not getting the sound.

Help!

Man this is a real headache. I wanted to give free software a try but I am kinda getting discouraged. I won't give up on it though!

I have managed to get ALL usb devices I have working including my Sony Camera. Also I have got the nvidia drivers loaded for video. The only thing holding me back is the Sound card.

After I change the drivers in Mandrake Control center, How do I test the sound output? I don't have XMMS, nor do I know how to load it.

Thanks!
