sound card problem


Hi,

I am not able to turn my sound on.

This is what I am getting when i use 'soundon' command.

[code]
>soundon

/lib/modules/2.6.25/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko is too large
/lib/modules/2.6.25/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko is too large
/lib/modules/2.6.25/kernel/drivers/video/nvidia.ko is too large
Failed to disable conflicting sound drivers
Reboot and try running soundon again

Also check that you have not compiled sound support statically
into the kernel.
[\code]

when I click on the tray icon, I get this
"No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found"


I have also recompiled my kernel image..recompiled the nvidia.ko but the problem still exists.

Can someone help me please ?

I don't see how nvidia.ko can be sound related...

Are you still(looking at your previous posts) using Debian 4 (with alsa-base, alsa-utils and alsa-oss)?
What happens if you run alsaconf (as root)?

What is your sound card?

I am using debian (4?) with kernel version 2.6.25

I did not have those alsa stuff. So I installed them and ran alsaconf.
I get this message
"no legacy drivers available for your machine"

Well, that's rather weird since you don't need any legacy drivers.

That device "should" work with plain snd-hda-intel

What happens if you load it manually (since alsaconf seems to have a problem identifying your actual device)?

hey,

I fixed this issue by compiling the kernel without statically linking the OSS lib (exactly what the warning said)

The OSS libs now get loaded as modules (.ko) .

The nvidia.ko is large warning comes every time during boot. Dont know why. But my sound is working

Ah...
But why did you enable that in first place (debian has both OSS and ALSA binaries and sources in the repos) ?

PS: same thing with nvidia.ko (the kernel part for your 3D display driver).

Your sound chipset should work with alsa(and it's OSS-compatibility) as well though.
...Not that their's anything wrong with good old OSS if your happy with it...(mostly less functionality).

Most people just go with the normal debian configurations and use that as a starter point (default distro kernel builds are already too bloated for my taste)
