No Sound with Audigy 2ZS on Xandros 3.0 Deluxe
So, I have no sound on my computer.
I am running Xandros 3.0 Deluxe with a Audigy 2ZS sound card.
I tried the trick on the Xandros FAQ about going into the sound mixer and clicking the yellow bubble for the Analog output. Did nothing.
I disabled my onboard sound. Still nothing.
In my sound mixer (default one with Xandros) it does show only my Audigy 2ZS card.
Any ideas how I can get this running? I manage a record label and find audio useful
Help very much appreciated.
try opening a terminal and typing
then raise all your volumes and press M to unmute channel (the only important ones are really PCM and MASTER)
Ok I opened it up but all the volumes are halfway up, I forgot to mention that Dapper Dan had me do that already, sorry, totally slipped my mind. Nothing is muted in there.
Any other ideas? I hope. please...so soundless...lol
What Spencerf mentions is the solution to most sound problem in Linux, that's for sure.
What is the output of
lsmod | grep snd"To express yourself in freedom, you must die to everything of yesterday. From the 'old', you derive security; from the 'new', you gain the flow."
I'd imagine so, I'd have never known unless someone told me, lol.
Ok, the Output is...

I have no idea what any of that means, lol, ahhhh learning new stuff. wheee!
well, you have a the correct modules, you system is recognizing your device and you have raised and unmuted your card so the problem, assuming all those things are correct, probably is something really simple like: speakers aren't hooked up right, speakers aren't on, speaker volume is turned off.
do you get any sound from
cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp
hit ctrl + c to end the annoying noice if you get one.
Weird, I ran that command and got the annoying noise. hit control + c to stop it.
But still couldn't get sound from anything else.
I rebooted and suddenly *poof* SOUND!
no problem. Probably something was permanently accessing your device and by rebooting you stopped the rogue process. Manytimes things like kde sound management system will tie up your sound device accidently.
Ahh, good to know! If it happens again I'll know what to do.
