sound


I have RH9. Only issue is with sound.

1) lsmod gives.

i810_audio 27624 0
ac97_codec 14568 0 [i810_audio]
soundcore 6404 2 [i810_audio]
parport_pc 19076 1 (autoclean)
lp 8996 0 (autoclean)
parport 37056 1 (autoclean) [parport_pc lp]
autofs 13268 0 (autoclean) (unused)

.
.
.

2) Test sound gives no sound output.

3) Playing a CD gives no sound output.

What next.


BRgds,

I know it sounds daft, but are your speakers in the right socket? *8-)

Also, check that the volume levels are OK. Should be plenty of mixers available under redhat.

Lastly, if you have a handy mp3, try playing it with mpg123. If you get something like /dev/dsp does not exist, then the modules aren't loaded properly. If you get /dev/dsp persmission denied, then there are a few other things to have a look at.

ls -al /dev/dsp
this will show you the permissions of /dev/dsp

fuser /dev/dsp
if it comes back with a number, there is another process tying up the sound card.

ps -ef | grep <number from previous command>

If you are running KDE, this will probably be artsd, or if you are running Gnome then this may be esd. Try running a KDE or Gnome sound app.

low sound output

1) Not bad at all for starters. I heard some guitar play when I clicked on test sound. But guess what the volume is max but the sound that I hear is too low. Horribly low for a max.

2) CD player will show me as if its reading the sound file. I can hear nothing.


I tried the sndconfig. I don't know what worked but there is sound (although very low on max volume. This is not the case in win2000. There the sound is pretty ok). I need to get the same output in Linux because I know that Linux is more powerful with sound.

What next.


BRgds,

the cd player is a whole different issue. My understanding is you need a cable connectiong your cd-rom directly to your mother board.

...or your sound card.
