system sound not working
I have a sound blaster live value, RH9, fresh install and updated, except for the kernal source. i installed XMMS, and it looks like it plays, but i get no sound,
everything looks like it is configured properly, but i cant get any system sound?
can anyone help.
What driver do you have installed for the soundcard?
I'm still playing around with my new install of RH 9.0, and I noticed I have the same problem with a SB Live 5.1 card.
XMMS appears to play, but there's no audio. The CD player also acts the same way. And eventhough I have sound events turned on and all of them play with sound in the configuration gui, only some of them are actually heard while using the system (seems to be all the Galeon ones that don't).
I haven't had much time to play around with this, but I'll be checking here for any posted solutions!
BTW, I'm not on that machine right now, so I can't check which driver it's using...
If you're not running the emu10k1 driver, then I suggest that. It works well for all SB cards.
Look in the control panel, not sure it's name in RH9, I use Mandrake 9.1, there is a "master" app there for sound, within Mandrake the "speakers" were set to mute for some reason, right off a "clean" install.
what output do you get from "lsmod"?
