    soundcard issues

    OK, so I got new memory for my machine... and I put it in

    Noticed the soundcard was loose, it wobbled in its slot, took it out, put it back in (the same slot) and tightened screw.

    Now my sound doesn't work!!

    When I first installed redhat it wouldnt work cause i have onboard sound and it was trying to use that rather then SB Live!.... i had a friend root into my box and fix it... worked like a charm but he hasnt been online latley...

    So... what do I do to change it so it uses my SB live?

    PS. I _need_ my mic to work as well.... I do net coferencing... my friend was able to get that to work too... a mic jack is in the sb live!

    here is the output os lsmod - which people ask for alot when thers soundcard issues

    We'll need the output of lspci as well.

    Your motherboard is very strange... do you know why it has three PCI buses?
    Anyway, check your mixer settings. It might be that your sound is simply muted.

    It's an ABIT motherboard... 3 pci busses, no idea.

    Anyways... I wish it was as simple as it being muted. I checked the mixer before I ever posted here because well... we all know... the mixer can get jacked around with for some unknown reason sometimes...

    Anyways... I hope someone has some ideas

    Does it seem like it's working, only that you don't actually get the sound, or is it clearly not working? Ie., what happens if you run "ps aux >/dev/dsp"?

  8. #7
    [jon@Uberleet-Terminal jon]$ ps aux >/dev/dsp
    [jon@Uberleet-Terminal jon]$


    heres some new info to my problem -- the un-touched /etc/modules.conf file
    alias eth0 tulip
    alias usb-controller usb-uhci
    alias sound-slot-0 emu10k1
    post-install sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&$pre-remove sound-slot-0 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 $

    A guy on told me to add
    alias sound-slot-1 snd-emu10k1
    above snd-emu10k1 snd-pcm-oss ----- but it didn't do a damn thing....

    any more suggestions?

    It is strange indeed. Can you check your logs for any weird kernel messages? Also, just to be absolutely sure, can you send the output of "aumix -q"?

    Yeah, I didn't think that there were going to be any errors there. Anyhow, did you find any kernel messages? Try reloading the modules and so and see if that logs anything.
