Sound will not play in mandrake 9.2 help


Yes, the speakers are on, lol, and mandrake's volume seems to be up (Kmix is on with the volume) I'll plug in a cd, and linux will recognize it. It will start playing, but no sound. Any help? Thanks

is this only a sound problem with cd audio? if your mp3's will play in something like xmms, then it could be that your cd audio level is not high enough

in kmix, make sure cd audio is set high and unmuted; make sure you have a cord from the back of your cd drive to your sound card; make sure the modules for your sound card are loaded

you need to provide more information about what system you using and the type of sound card and current drivers using etc would help a lot more .. mandrake have a habbit of turning off the valume on things with aumix if you have it installed open it up and see what it is showing

hi,

To play a cd with Linux, a small wire should be connected from your cd-rom player directly to the mother board/sound card...without > no sound at all !!

Ok, I believe a cord is already directly connected from soundcard to cd drive.
ALTHOUGH, I just installed Mandrake Linux 9.2, with KDE, and I am a

I have not downloaded any drivers..Should I, and if so, where?

okay, so do you have the ability to hear sound besides from the cd? (as in, does sound play when you start kde?)

also, try playing some mp3's

if sound does startup with kde, you will want to turn of the aRts sound server daemon (gets in the way of a lot of sound)

in the kde control panel, go to system administration, sound system, and deselect the "arts" option at the top of the screen, then hit apply

Open up Kscd > configure and check to see if /dev/cdrom has been selected.
