Another sound issue...


Hi there,

I've got this problem that no amount of fiddling has yet corrected. I am running Slackware 10.0 (with the 2.6.7 kernel installed from binary) on an IBM Thinkpad 600 (2645-45U). The damned laptop has a CS4237B sound chipset which I originally tried setting up manually. alsaconf recognized and setup the card (almost identically to how I had done it manually before), including a full set of changes to modprobe.conf. Further, I have run a mixer and made sure that it's not muted and that the volume's up, but I am getting no sound out of the blasted thing.

An lsmod shows all the appropriate modules loaded. Neither KDE nor Gnome produce any sound. Trying to run XMMS results in the program hanging. Attempting to manually start artsd results in the following error:

ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:549snd_pcm_hw_start) SNDRV_PCM_IOCTL_START failed: Broken pipe

I can run cd-audio, but that ain't sayin' much. Anybody got any bright ideas? Thanks for any help ahead of time!

Oddly enough, that was the first file I found on-line... And I spent a weekend trying to get that to work....

However, I just imported a couple settings from it, and blammo! Sound is now working. Still took some other monkeying around, but it works. Thank you!

Go to www.alsa-project.org >sound card > cirrus logic >cs4237B > details.

What I did on mine (different soundcard) was copy the examples lines to /etc/modules.conf and got the sound working that way. Be sure to take note of what you need to do with the mixer.
