Got no sound in 10.2 now


I have been using 10.2 le for a while now no problems.
I went to put a cd in and no sound.
I checked some things and there is no sound anywhere, even when it boots up.

I went into MCC and checked in services and alsa is running and set to at boot.

Any ideas of what to check ??

Humm, besides the basic hardware stuff like:
1. the audio CD cable is properly attached to your sound board.
2. The volumes (alsamixer-gui)

You can check via the hardware section on the Mandrake Control Center if your system recognized the sound board correctly. (you'll know if your sound board is listed among the other hardware).

To have the ALSA drivers loaded don't guarantee the sound...

I tried to stop the alsa service in Mandrake Control Center and it said it was in use with something else. I couldn't read the pid number to see what the task was.

THe last part of the message wouldn't fit on the screen and I can't make it bigger. I did a command to check what was running and I couldn't see anything that would use sound.

I think I have something that is grabbing alsa. I installed ripperx to rip cd. That may be the problem although it wasn't running when I had the problem but I did use it earlier. I might use alsa and not release it or something............

Will check on this further.

Well it is known that artsd do that kind of thing.

Are you using KDE?
If you are from the control center of KDE turn off the arts daemon to perform your tests, if not, see with top (fof example) if artsd is running and kill it.
You should recover the control of your sound board.

but besides that, a CD audio should not be affected by the sound deamon beyond it volume level, (I mean if you have the analogic cable connected and didn't selected to play the disk digitally)

When a window does not fit the screen you can drag it with the mouse to see the rest. Hold ALT and then drag the Window. This is a priceless hint when trying to use KDE on a 800x640 resolution monitor.
