    (no) Sound


    I just installed Slack 10.2 on an Intel 865PERL with onboard sound. It is no longer seen. It worked great with 10.1. Any ideas? Thanks

    Still no Sound

    Thanks for all the help! alsaconf says nothing found Another thing I have notice is that K3B and my other recording software dont see my HP cdr anymore.....It's correctly listed as I boot up (?) I'm helping my daughter move today, so I'll be back this evening. If my back still works when I get home, I'll come back to the desk and see what suggestions you guys have. Thanks!

    Hi, do you still remember what sound driver Alsa was using for it in 10.1?

    PS: With onboard stuff, Alsa can have problems to find your needed driver.
    If you know the one it needs, this is easy to fix.

    PS PS: For the cdrecord thingy, could you check if it works as root.

    Alsa sound not working after 10.2 updates from Dec 14, 2005

    -->
    Alsa sound would not work after making the updates of Dec 14, 2005

    Followed the directions given below from
    http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc...module=Generic

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Make a file called .asoundrc in your home and/or root directory.

    vi /home/xxx/.asoundrc

    copy and paste the following into the file then save it.

    pcm.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
    }

    ctl.!default {
    type hw
    card 0
    }

    The keyword default is defined in the ALSA lib api and will always access hw:0,0 - the default device on the default soundcard. Specifying the !default name supercedes the one defined in the ALSA lib api.

    Now you can test:

    aplay -D default test.wav
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Also run
    alsaconf
    alsamixer (and set volumes and unset mutes)
    alsactl store
