Another sound thread


hey everyone, new here to the forum and to Linux (slackware 10.1)

For the last few days Ive been trying to get sound with no luck, I think Ive read every post on the net concerning this issue. Ive tried alsaconf, alsamixer, other mixers, Im not sure how to read my lsmod, maybe someone can help me out and see if there might be a problem with that.

I have a soundblaster live sound card, and on board sound, so im not sure if there might be a conflict with that, or with my modem which I dont use.

Thanks,

Rick

Looks like to me that both sound cards are active and recognized.

I think the 1st step should be to disable the onboard sound card in your
motherboard bios.

Then try alsaconf again and see what happens.

I've had two soundcards active and recognized before (those exact ones, as a matter of fact), so I doubt that's the problem. What specific kinds of problems are you encountering?

On my particular system I know that after each install the permissions for the /dev/dsp, files are wrong for normal users, and I must do a chmod +rwx on them (as root) to get them working.

PS To turn off the onboard there might be a jumper on the MB, instead of a BIOS setting

when I play a cd it will continue to play with no error, everything acts like I have sound, but none comming out my speakers

Onboard sound is shut off via BIOS, and chmod didnt do the trick for me.

Berto -
I know you can have multiple sound cards - but since Rdream13 had only 1 post
at the time, simpler the better.

Rdream13 -
Using XMMS? try this:
Go to preferences -> Audio I/O plugins
1st make sure you have "cd audio player ( libcdaudio.so) "
if not, get it.
2nd, highlight it and press 'configure' - make 'play mode' digital extraction, not analog.

See what happens,

Just a hardware thought. You must have a cable connected to the cd-rom audio output, to a motherboard (or sound card header) cd-rom header. Needed for Linux.
