    back to slack

    I found a good mirror and said what the hell. I am now a Slacker again, but not without a problem or 2...

    I cant seem to get my sound working. I just recompiled my kernel to include support for my TV Tuner card, so it shows up as having 2 sound devices, the TV Tuner's chip and my emu10k1 (sb live).

    The problem is that i cant seem to get it work properly. I've never had a problem getting sound going until i enabled the "bt878 audio" support in the kernel for my TV Tuner card.

    What would fix this?

    the only way to get sound is to disable video4linux, and that doenst exactly solve anything, heh.

    CJ had a similar problem to this. i'll get him to post.

    IIRC the problem was the first mixer/dsp device was not the on board sound, but the TV card. so you need to symlink /dev/dsp to /dev/dsp1 not /dev/dsp0 and /dev/mixer to /dev/mixer1 not mixer0

    ln -sf /dev/dsp1 /dev/dsp is how you'll link

    good luck

    yes indeed, what I had to do was do what gorn said because for some reason slack makes the tuner card audio the wrong thing, so try changing to /dev/dsp1...however in my case, I have 2 audio cards or something was wierd, so i just tried /dev/dsp2 and bam! it worked! So, try playin around with that setting and report back if it works

    i ended up just compiling v4l in as a module and now the problem was the first mixer/dsp device was not the on board soun my sound, radio, and TV works.

    Yeah that is a weird problem, it seems like there would be some initiative to fix it from automagically claiming the TV card as the primary audio device
