all the specific drivers from your new kernel, i'm not sure of, but the difference looks like, your sound and audigy drivers which should() actually be responsible for sound, arne't on, (the thing is i don't know why ac97, uses the audigy driver,) but regardless, that looks like the issue.. from here. you can try probing for audigy and sound modules.. or grep the kernel config file for audigy and see if it's supported or built as a module.

as i said, i use gui's when nessacary, that means audio video, and formatted word processing (open office) so as far as your mixer tools, everyone else here has a lot more experience, and hopefully input. i generaly try workman to play a cd, or cat a .wav file to /dev/sndstat and /dev/dsp ...

/usr/src/linux-2.6.0/Documentation/sound/alsa/ALSA-Configuration.txt

Towards the end of that file is some info on what to put in /etc/modprobe.conf

...Does not exist on my computer.

But nervermind I've managed to sovle it, the solution was rather embarrasing really. It turned out that I had forgot to activate the sound channel in KMix ... do I hear a DOH.

But anyway a ton of thanks to you guys for putting up with me and learning me all this stuff on the way of finding the truly 1337 solution of of clicking on a dark green dot, making it bright green... Bleh.

Hi,

sorry to be mendatious but a lot of steam has gone on changing the kernel.

No operating system has been mentioned.

my tippet is that the sound in 9.2 is very problematic. It wasn't under 9.1.

i have mine working on most machines with 9.2 by luck or design, some have been upgraded others have not.

I cannot always get it to work, as I have loaded Aumix and Kmix. Changing users seems to cause problems and looking at both with tweeking the volume control seems to restore it.

i wish Mandrake would have a serious look at the mods they did to sound that cause a lot of problems now. especially with Totem and Mediaplayer. I have my dvd's working under totem, with sound twiching, but still have the problems with media player.

Please Mandrake sort this out as you have a good system, but I am not a member of your club.

maybe you couldn't care less because I'am not a member, but it ill serves your name, or have you made 9.2 a bridge to far.

please don't blame mandrake,

it doesn't matter what they forget or change in their new distro, a kernel recompile, < 45 minutes of time < 10 minutes work by the user, will generally solve the issue.. so it's not mandrakes fault. we'd be more than happy to help you learn to recompile your kernel...

AYE CARRUMBA!

Since installing the 2.6.0 kernel... Ive got a new problem...

Everytime I recompile the kernel, copy, run LILO and reboot.. the system fails to boot!!! I get the: LI .... prompt and the system hangs.... I then have to insert a CDROM and resue the system to get it working again...

GEEZ!!!

Be careful you be not using a daemon to take care of the sound that you be unaware of. Problems can come up if you are using (not knowing you actually do) arts or esd (I use esd myslef) and not telling the audio applications to go THRUE it.

I fixed my sound too. I had to go into the command line and use the "amixer" command.

i had to use "man amixer" to figure out what to type. It turns out my sound (line out, CD and DVD) were all muted. Go figure.
