freebsd sound woes...
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 30, 2003
Ok. The installation is a fairly clean version 5.1 (unstable).
Now, I have loaded the soundcard module into the kernel using kldload (too scared to recompile the kernel just yet). Now, upon starting kde, the arts sound server does start up and does not give an error. But still there is no sound. No applications will play back any sound at all. In the arts configuration utility, everything seems to be setup ok. I'm not really sure what I am missing here. Any help would be appreciated
FreeBSD installer woes
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 1, 2014
Hi all --
I'm trying to install FreeBSD 10.0 on a netbook and must admit the installer is kinda confusing me.
For what it is worth, I ran FreeBSD on dual- and triple- boot systems years ago and recall being quite impressed with it. I've also successfully installed and used NetBSD and OpenBSD before ... so I'm not completely wet behind the ears w/*BSD installation.
Here's what is what I have before me. I'm in the Partition Editor, in the "Create Partitions for FreeBSD" dialogue. The layout is as follows:
Audio Woes Created new user, lost admin's sound Ubuntu 13.04
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 5, 2013
In an effort to shorten my usually TL;DR help requests, here's my "short" version: this is the second time I've had this happen on an Ubuntu 13.04 install. Oh, and let me preface with this I'm a terribly horrible Linux noob. The first time was an issue with settings being switched between HDMI and Audio for some reason. I initially checked that this time, but my previous solution did not work by just going into sound settings. Alright, now onto the actual issue itself this time around:
Everything on my Ubuntu 13.04 installation has been working wonderfully, even my AMD HD 6800. Needless to say, I've began getting a bit more comfortable with Ubuntu in general and I recently decided to set up a secondary user account on the computer, under standard access for my daughter. Everything went well, logged into the account and had a look around, then logged out immediately, changing no settings.
I logged back in to my primary account on the computer to the sur
hrm... i seem to have no sound drivers (freeBSD 5.3)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 15, 2004
ok, i installed freeBSD 5.3 for AMD64, got a bunch of other stuff working, but i can't seem to get my sound card to work (Creative Sound Blaster Live!... i actually bought it because FreeBSD doesn't yet have support for the sound on the Mobo and it didn't cost too much anyways... the on-mobo sound isn't that great anyways from what i hear. regardless i really want to get this to work). so i web searched, kldload'ed the driver listed on the HCL (snd_emu10k1), tried to kldload the generic driver every way i could, added the line to loader.conf: no luck. so, i eventually browsed the file where all the drivers are stored... there are no drivers here with the "snd_" preffix.
anyone know what might be the problem here? think it is a bad install? i initially installed the x-user distro, but because of another issue i ended up reinstalling with "all" selected for the distro.
can't seem to d/l the driver from online (or maybe? i tried to search), or whatever i'd need
Bluetooth Speaker Woes: Sound Cuts Out, PulseAudio Crashes
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: September 6, 2013
Bought myself a pair of Bluetooth speakers to use with my new ThinkPad. (They pair as headphones.)
In use, after I've switched the sound output setting to use the speakers, the sound is initially OK.
However, eventually, i.e, in a few minutes, sound begins to rapidly cut in and out, and finally stops altogether.
At that point, a look at Sound Settings shows the Bluetooth speakers are no longer set as the output device. They aren't listed, in fact. The Bluetooth setting panel still shows them as paired.
Often, but not always, this is accompanied by a Pulseaudio crash report from Apport.
I've looked around for workarounds and fixes. I haven't found any that work here, but i did find many reports of similar problems.
What I want, of course, is a reliable and persistent pairing of the speakers and a reliable and pesisent routing of sound through them, something that survives rebooting.
Can I fix this? Or should I get the old speakers and plug them in?
Currently on Ubuntu Gno
HP Pavilion woes sound, wireless and bluetooth not working
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 8, 2014
I bought a new HP Pavilion 15-e026ax . Since it comes with Free DOS, my plan was to install Ubuntu on it as soon as it arrived. After installing Ubuntu Release 12.04 (precise) 64-bit on it, I am left without the ability to play any sound, use bluetooth or wireless on the laptop. The bluetooth settings panel is greyed out, no sound is heard when I play some audio (volume settings are ok) and I am not able to detect any wireless networks. The wireless radio switch (Fn F12) stays permanently orange, and I don't know whether it is on or off.
Since there seem to be some Ubuntu versions that are specifically certified for HP computers, can someone help me find the right one for me. There are several versions for AMD processor laptops, but mine isn't listed there.
[SOLVED] Sound in FreeBSD on VIrtualBox
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 6, 2015
I wavered between putting this here or in the Virtualization Forum and then decided on here because I think the answer will more likely be in BSD than in VirtualBox.
I use VMs for distro-hopping and learning. Recently, I've been trying to learn something about BSD (I was inspired to do so by Mary at SMLR). Note that this is not an urgent problem, but I am mighty curious.
I have both FreeBSD and PC-BSD in separate VMs and I cannot get audio in FreeBSD. I can get it in PC-BSD; indeed, it works quite nicely and I've been using it to listen to streaming audio just because I can. I tried all the diagnostics in the Free BSD Handbook short of trying to compile my own kernel and have had no luck.
Here are the facts:
VirtualBox v. 5.0.8 r103449 running on Slackware --Current.
LinuxApple Mac os X and freebsd
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 8, 2004
I am using Slack 9.1 dual booting with Win 98 for last 3 years.
I happened to read something about the imac and eventually surfed the net for resources.
Although the imac is expensive it has its own fan following.
I found out that it is based on a freebsd kernel with some tweaks.
Also i found out that Os X has not been ported to Intel architecture
1. Can I have Win98/Slack 9.1(currently using) +freebsd on my current pc?
Or is it that freebsd requires some special primary partition.
2. I cannot buy an imac as it is expensive.
So how can I have the Mac look and feel on Linux or freebsd desktop
3. Is BSD(with all variants free/net/open) a dying distro. As per my knowledge all software available for Linux is available for BSD.
Thanks and Regards
ALSA vs OSS Digital sound cards
location: linux.com - date: June 26, 2009
I would like to know what your guys takes on this is ALSA Drives is on all of the big players distros like Ubuntu & Open Suse and the dont come with a OSS driver at all and i think this is bad as OSS has better support for Digital sound cards than ALSA dose at the moment. Just post back what you think ALSA vs OSS when it comes to digital sound
