No sound with audio cd VL 6 RC2
« on: January 29, 2009, 03:33:44 am »

Good morning,

I installed VL RC2 a couple of days ago to try it and have encountered a couple of problems maybe someone can help me with.  First, the gui installer will not complete the configuration steps. It just hangs. Second, there is no sound with audio cd. Xmms recognizes the audio cd and shows the tracks in playlist but there is no sound. DVD movies play just fine with video and sound. I have tried setting the digital playback to digital and have tried changing the audio controller. So far, no success. Any ideas?

RC2 had some known problems with audio that were fixed in RC3 and RC4.

If the problem persists in RC4 we'll need more information to help you troubleshoot this.  What sound card or chipset do you have?
