Need help getting my sound working with Slackware 11 and KDE
I have recently installed Slackware 11 on my machine and I have been able to get everything to work except for the sound.
I get the following 2 errors all the time:
Sound server fatal error:
cpu overload, aborting
aRts had to restart!
I have tried to use alsaconf and it detects my sound card (Creative Labs SB Audigy [rev 03] ) and then says it is configured.
After that, it says "Now ALSA is ready to use. For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer."
I was told by someone to do the following 3 things:
1. Add your user to the audio group.
2. Use alsamixer or kmix and set your volumes / unmute all applicable settings.
3. You may have the wrong server selected for aRTS. So go to the KDE Control Center > Sound and Multimedia > Sound System > Hardware tab. Be sure to choose ALSA (abbr) from the drop down list of audio devices. The default setting is 'Autodetect' and this may be the problem.
My sound still does not work after trying these things. Does anyone know how to go about fixing this problem?
