    No Sound in Slackware 9.1

    Hi Guys,

    I just installed Slackware 9.1. Though it seems to work fine, I am getting no sound. Now, it seems Slackware moved to the Alsa sound architecture. I see modules loaded, but I get no sound, even as root. I am using KDE, and I tried playing mp3's and wav's with XMMS, and also going to the KDE ontrol center where it has the sound test button. No sound there either.

    I am using a Soundblaster Live card, and it worked great yesterday with Red Hat.

    This is the result of my lsmod:

    My regular user and my root account are both in the Sound group.

    Can anyone see anything I may be missing?

    I'm also getting this message on bootup:

    Loading driver...
    ALSA warning: No mixer settings found in /etc/asound.state.
    Sound may be muted. Use 'alsamixer' to unmute your sound card,
    and then 'alsactl store' to save the default ALSA mixer settings
    to be loaded at boot.

    But since I have never used Alsa, I'm kinda lost...


    EDIT:

    Allright. That was stupid of me. I just needed to follow the instructions. Is working now.

    Allright, I must be missing something.

    Seems that, I get no sound unless I run alsaconf each time I log in.

    Can anyone think what I may be missing?

    Re:No Sound in Slackware 9.1

    I don't have 9.1 yet.

    Did you run mixer and max it out? Did you check the audio cable? Do other distros have sound?

    Re:No Sound in Slackware 9.1

    Hi,

    I get sound. Is just that I have to run alsaconf everytime I log on, to get sound. After I do that, it works good. But I am lazy to have to do it everytime...

    Re:No Sound in Slackware 9.1

    hmm, is this something that requires only parameters passed or just run? put it in your runlevel boot script or in your pre runlevel scripts.

    Re:No Sound in Slackware 9.1

    I wish I could do that, but alsaconf has a curses-based gui, and i don't see a way to pass parameters to it.

    actually this is a common question over at the arch linux forum and there are several solution. if you have something like /etc/rc.local you could pop over to the arch linux forum and do a search for alsa/sound threads and you will find a few threads that have various setting you can pass in your rc.local

    Re:No Sound in Slackware 9.1

    Thanks Sarah, Schotty. I got it working.
    I checked both the Alsa homepage and the ArchLinux forum, and I saw that many people were bypassing the problem by adding aumix -w 50 -v 85 -c 50 to /etc/rc.d/rc.local, or a similar command.
    Though that worked, it seemed like an unclean hack (not that that has stopped me in the past), so I edited manually /etc/asound.state, changing the value of the volume on each entry. That worked.

    Re:No Sound in Slackware 9.1

    yeah it is an unclean hack. somehow i don't have to have that hack. i saved my aumix settings and it just seems to come up on boot except i do have to unmute the volume if i happen to be listening to a cd.
