    alsa not working


    i am using CRUX 2.3. i have installed "alsa-lib, alsa-utils and alsa-oss". ALSA was compiled into the kernel including the sequencers and mixers. i have also unmuted my sound-cards using alsamixer.

    now when i try to play "ogg123 song.ogg". it starts ogg123 and HANGS in there, now whether i give "Ctrl-c" or "Ctrl-d" it does not quit and remains hanging in there . these setting work well for Gentoo but with CRUX i have this problem. even in CRUX "alsa" does not show up in "/etc/rc.d/" directory like other services e.g "cups" and "xdm".

    any solution ?

    YUCK, sorry, it does not work

    seems like an ALSA bug to me.

    alsa not working (SOLVED)

    hey Storm Rider,

    there was some trouble with Linux version 2.6.20.3. i checked my "dmesg" and noticed that Kernel was automatically disabling IRQ #5 which belonged to VIA chipset, my audio chipset actually

    so i compiled and installed kernel version 2.6.20.11 from The Linux Kernel Archives and everything is fine now

    here is my relevant "dmesg", if that helps someone in solving his problems:



    sh-3.2$ dmesg | grep IRQ
