(SOLVED) No sound VL 5.9 RC3 [FYI]
« on: December 06, 2007, 07:47:02 pm »
I just fresh installed VL5.9 RC3 and I can't get sound going...

The card is recognized
I've been in alsamixer...

I had this same issue in RC1 all I had to do is go in the sound mixer and there was a thing that said switch, at the bottom that had a check box, I unchecked it and bam my audio was working, this time there isn't a box down there and the option in that area is a drop down menu that doesn't give any options...

When I run xfce4-mixer in the terminal I get the following error

** (xfce4-mixer:3342): WARNING **: oss: could not find control that the new recording source refers to. Not setting it.

any ideas?

!solved!

it was the digital1 setting in the mixer that was muting my card...
I read a posting on linuxquestions
same issue in slackware 12, they suggested going in to alsamixer and toggling the main card setting from 00 to MM
This gave me sound and a smile to boot...

I then played with the mixer with the terminal still open and found that the digital1 bar toggled this same setting.

FYI.
