    Problem with RH9 and onboard soundcard


    Hello

    A few weeks ago I installed RH8 and although RH8 detected my soundcard as VT82cxxx_audio I had no sound until I installed the Alsa drivers for my on-board soundcard(via8235).

    Now I have RH9 and when i open "Soundcard Detection" my soundcard is detected as VT82cxxx_audio and when I click the "Play test sound" button the test sounds plays normally(except for the first time after login, then the sound comes after 20 sec. or so) and when sound events (like minimize) happen, the sound plays normally. However, when I try to use an audio player (like XMMS) to play an OGG or a MP3 file it only plays the first second of the track.

    Can you help me??

    Thanks in advance, MezzUp

    I don't know if that soundcard supports multiple opens, but if does, try using the OSS driver for XMMS. Do you use GNOME or KDE?

    wow, thnx ALOT dude, that worked......
    however, that other audio player (that comes with RH9(kboodle or somthin') doesn't work. Wich is not a problem because I can use XMMS but I was wondering if this was just a problem with those two programs or with the soundcard driver itself. I.e. will I hear sound with mplayer and will counter-strike have sound(if I manage to install it)?

    It's most probably with the sound multiplexer that you're using. If you're using KDE, that is artsd, and in GNOME, it is esd. Why it fails, I don't know, but I hold them in quite low regard anyway, like most other people.
    Counter-strike (or wine, that is) probably uses OSS directly, so that shouldn't be a problem. I know that MPlayer uses its OSS driver by default, so that won't be a problem.
    There are always programs that use whatever multiplexer you're using, though, so it should be fixed. Do you use GNOME or KDE?

    Sorry, then I can't help you, since I never use KDE. Let's hope someone else can.
