I'm having some trouble getting alsa to work in Slackware64-14.1 in a VirtualBox VM. I'm running Slackware without X (though I do have the X series installed).
First, I made sure rc.alsa
was executable. Then, after logging in as root, I ran alsamixer
to unmute the channels. I tested the sound by running cat /dev/sda > /dev/dsp
, but there was no sound.
I searched for some guides to set up sound in Slackware, but I'm not sure which guide to use. Are there official instructions I could use?
Here is the output of lsmod | grep snd
(sorry the indentation didn't work correctly):
snd_intel8x0 28308 0
snd_ac97_codec 112023 1 snd_intel8x0
snd_pcm 76009 2 snd_ac97_codec,snd_intel8x0
snd_page_alloc 7098 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm
snd_timer 18614 1 snd_pcm
snd 58630 4 snd_ac97_codec,snd_intel8x0,snd_timer,snd_pcm
soundcore 5354 1 snd
ac97_bus 1198 1 snd_ac97_codec
I have installed the A, AP, D, F, K, L, N, TCL, and X series. Perhaps I'm missing a dependency? Should I just go with a default full install next time?
