Angry no audio


hello guys,
i recently downloaded linux, knoppix and started on it. the problem is that i cnat get any audio. when the system detects hardware it does detect my sound card which is OPL3-SAX sound board. but when i try to play any audio files. the system notifies that either my sound card is not configured or is being used by some other application. it would be great if anyone could help me with this

thanks

jam

Maybe "some other application" is a sound server. In KDE "arts" is the sound server and in Gnome it is "esd". If that's the problem, sometimes you can configure your programs to use it, otherwise you have to disable the sound server.

try swapping your audio cable from the green (line out) jack, to the pink (line in) jack on your mobo

i have asus p4pe w/onboard sound, and this did it for me

apparently it works differently in rh9 than in windoze

Which version of knoppix is it? Are you using KDE, GNOME, or what?

If the "arts" sound server is running (Control Center-> Sound & Multimedia->Sound System) then you want your sound programs to use it. Many programs have arts audio output plugins.
