I don't know how to find answer to your question.

However, when I first bought this Lenovo N586 I posted the lspci, which can be found at http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=16905.0 (I was running VL 7.0).  It showed an audio device. I don't recall having sound problems then. Here is that old lspci:

I also note that whether I have pulse-audio start on boot or not makes no difference.  When I go to
vasm legacy and try to run the alsamixer program, nothing happens.

sledgehammer,

I am not sure about your issue but then it might be due to firmware issue.

For the Mplayer issue, I have build MPlayer-1.1.1 to include alsa and other optional drivers. Someone might want to check out optional drivers as it may contain copyright drivers which maybe illegal in some country...

You're probably right, but it seems strange to me that I would have sound in 7.0 but no sound in 7.1.

Apparently it's a difference in name only. Looks like what was called an "Audio device" is now a "Multimedia controller".

ls -l /etc/rc.d/rc.alsa    Should be present and executable.

As for sound in 7 and not 7.1, the 7.1 Mplayer build didn't contain alsa output at first. Would you be kind enough to try the newer, alsa-enabled version and let us know?

To all:
The advice hata_ph asked for on the legality of certain drivers is important, but nearly impossible for one person in one place to figure out. Please lend a hand if you can.

If one person could install the newest mplayer package then cutpaste the output of "mplayer -ao help" here, that would give us a head start. (I'm stuck on 7.0 for a while, or I'd do it.)

mplayer -vo help may be helpful too. Keep in mind that the proprietary part may not be in mplayer, but only that mplayer can use it if it's there. Still, if you find something listed that might be an issue, please post back so that it can be sorted out.

@sledgehammer
See if running '/usr/sbin/alsaconf' as root is any help. It needs a terminal, either linux (textmode) or some kind of X-terminal. 'alsamixer' in a terminal should work after that, as should xfce's volume control.

Thanks so much for your suggestion.  I will try the new mplayer when I get home tonight.

Robert,

I installed the latest mplayer from the testing repository.  It would not run until I downloaded libvdpau.  Gnome mplayer then ran fine, but no sound.

On running /usr/sbin/alsaconf as root, I get “No supported PnP or PCI card found.  Would you like to probe legacy ISA sound cards/chips?”  Saying “yes” brings up “No legacy drivers are available”

I have pulseaudio loaded at boot.  Don't know if that makes a difference or not.

B0.50 32-bit
Burned cd and also copied ISO to / of existing VL 7.0. Booted CD, chose the ISO as install source, asked for LILO to bootsector. Install hung at "Installing Bootloader".

Reboot, install from CD itself, LILO to bootsector. Also put in:
         Username: joeuser                                    Edit: Mea culpa, I'm sorry. Posted this because I didn't think it might
          Password: rootpass                                  matter what kind of characters, and these were just slightly
 Admin password: rootpassword                            easier to type than the real ones, '12345678' and '1234567890'
                                                                        I've used a mixture of alpha and num in the past, but never all alpha.
                                                                        Password length might matter: never had fewer than 8 characters.
Yes, those are the actual entries[sic]. Did not install Xfce this run to save time. Install completed normally and reboot (after activating the partition, of course) was normal.

On login, chose fluxbox (tested all, doesn't matter), put in "root" for user, "rootpass" for password. Now logged in as root. Log out. Log in as "joeuser" "rootpassword". Also worked, as did using the "correct" password for each one. I've mentioned this several times and the only feedback I've gotten is that the problem can't be duplicated. I don't buy that.

Issued "nm-applet" from xterm. No start, error message complained of not finding libgnome-keyring.so.0.

------------------------------------------------------------------
Reinstalled from CD just as above, except installed Xfce this time. Started a fluxbox session first (password problem still there) and issued 'nm-applet'. It started, icon appeared in tray, and after setting up hidden AP, it connected and worked. Apparently, installing Xfce is necessary for libgnome-keyring to be installed, configured, or accessed properly.

Started GSlapt, turned testing on. Reloading produced the error of "http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/veclinux-7.1/patches (not found, invalid, something like that)". Viewed repo in browser. What should be in the patches/ directory is in the patches/patches directory. PACAKAGES.TXT was empty (as in "no patches yet"), so I allowed GSlapt to ignore that repo.

Installed Midori (latest version in repo unless untested has newer ones). Started from Terminal. Came up, but browser window displayed the message "please install glib-networking". Installed it. Restarted Midori. Didn't have enough time to give it a workout, but what I did worked fine.

Logout. Login to Xfce. No particular problems. Needs an easily-findable audio-volume applet. Sound did work, default volume was pretty good, and alsamixer worked fine from the menu. Just took a second to realize the window had to be stretched down to access the sliders.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Every 32-bit iso so far, including 50 (no idea on 64's):
Either input (mouse or keyboard) is extremely slow and irregular, or it's posting input feedback to the screen that's the problem. Either way, it makes using VL drearily miserable and totally unenjoyable. Since the problem shows even when it's the installer running during the install process, the unpredictable results of input can be downright dangerous. Only two clues to what the problem might be, both probably misleading but: 1) when display goes to framebuffer during boot, I see Tux twice. 2) Message "module drm/i810 does not support smp" and that module doesn't load.

I get the same problem in linux console after issuing 'init 2'. Problem might be very slightly decreased in text mode, or that may be my imagination. If there's actually a difference, it's a very, very small one.

Installing and running in this circumstance is just too depressing and aggravating. I've added the install to my normal bootloader. I'm willing to test and check whatever towards fixing this problem if asked to do so. I'll install an ISO designed to fix it if asked. Otherwise, no more installations for me until this issue is reported fixed; just too much time lost and such a joy killer.

system = intel p4 cpu 1.7 ghz intel d845ept2 board
         768 meg ram
         1280 x 1024 f-417 neovo monitor
         gforce gf4mx440se 128 meg agp

Bo50 32bit

chose enter for gui installer and chose automatic defaults

reboot kicks out cd..nice

creates ext3-71.12 gig, swap-975.61 meg, unallocated-3.45 gig (via gparted installed via gslapt after update)

smooth install, login/out as user and root, added additional user as root with vasm. login/out fluxbox..OK

same issue as nightflier posted and I confirmed in previous BO with solid color background choice.

reboot allows corrupt user to be deleted, replaced with new user

No volume on bar but easily added, root folder on lower user bar easily removed

media players not setup for use..um player has message box for smplayer with every open, could not play .avi, mp4 or dvd, etc with mplayer or umplayer(selected various drive options in preferences). previous bo49 did play media with some effort.

exaile played mp3 when alsa was selected in preferences.

wifi icon does not match volume after row size 30, no issue connecting to internet

will reinstall with advanced option
