No sound in Arch Linux, had same problem when upgrading to slack 10.1
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 24, 2005
I did an FTP install of Arch Linux last night and selected every single package available (except of nss-spr or something, because it conflicted with firefox). I have to say, I am very pleased with my new system, save for one thing: the sound is non-existant.
I had this problem when I upgraded from slack 10.0 to slack 10.1 and I think it's something to do with the newer bersions of alsa, but I'm not sure. Basically, in the master channel in alsamixer, I can switch it on an off, but can't move it up and down, so it stays on 00.
I am using the onboard audio on an ASRock K7VT4A+ mobo, if that's any help. Also, using lsmod, I can see that the audio drivers are loaded, so I'm not really sure what the problem is.
Help would be very much appreciated!
No sound in Linuxbased virtual machines under Qemu (Linux Mint 16 host)
location: linuxexchange.com - date: June 16, 2015
Note : I requested to close this question as it turned out to be a Linux/Qemu specific issue.
I am trying Android x86 4.4-r2 in a Qemu virtual machine on a Linux Mint 16 laptop. The installation was successful. My biggest issue so far is sound. I have tried SB16, ES1370, AC97 virtual sound card models from Qemu but I get no sound from my virtual machine. Here's what I have in Android 4.4-r2:
# alsa_actl init
Found hardware: "SB16" "CTL1745" "CTL1745" "" ""
Hardware is initialized using a generic method #exit code is 22
I have also tried the EEEPC version (4.0), with ES1370, as suggested. Same thing: no sound.
With the SB16 driver though, alsa_aplay /system/media/audio/ringtones/Sceptrum.ogg seems to play something but I hear nothing.
I have a Windows virtual machine from which I can hear system sounds. So it definitely rules out a problem with Qemu on my part(**).
I also looked up suggestions from question #11037254 but none of them worked.
Can anyone shed some light?
Linux mint 17 no sound at all
location: linuxexchange.com - date: January 1, 1970
I'm new to linux mint, I have been working on it for a week now and the sound is not working at all. I tried a lot of the solutions suggested online but no luck.
Can anyone guide me where the problem might be or how to figure it out.
ubuntu 12.10 considered very slow vs linux mint?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 5, 2013
I have a 1 month old, brand new laptop (thinkpad). It's basically the "reference" laptop to have for linux, and I installed ubuntu 12.10, super modern hardware.
I found it to be very slow out of the box. Is it the unity interface? Any way we can disable this completely?
Running calibre, eclipse, and chrome, and thunderbird would result in big time harddrive "thrashing" where there's constant activity.
I was thinking about buying an SSD simply b/c things were so slow.
On a whim I installed linux mint 14 (cinnamon desktop). I am not exaggerating when I say that it is literally 5 times as fast in every area.
I can run the aforementioned apps simultaneously without any problems. It's been a revelation.
My SSD purchase is on the back burner now.
I'm sure that the Unity interface has been a complaint and there's always going to be people who dislike change. Or maybe it's most people who dislike change.
But I found it quite hard as a newbie to know what is
Ubuntu/Lubuntu 12.10 or Linux Mint 14 XFCE for an older computer?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 1, 1970
This is kind of a fun question for you guys, I have a old/decent computer I found, it's an HP Workstation xw4200 or something. It has a Pentium 4 3.5ghz, 4GB of memory ( upgraded) and the hard drives surprisingly use SATA, I also put in a Geforce GT 220. This computer is for my mom who isn't too great with computers so remember that I would like a distro that is simple to use.
It has win7 right now and it's pretty damn fast so I need a Linux distro that's probably faster than how it's operating now to convince my mother (as she'a always used Windows).
Ubuntu is probably the most user friendly distro out there as well that it is fast and stable so I would like to put Ubuntu on it, however since the PC is a bit old I would like to squeeze in as much performance as I can and I was thinking of Linux Mint 14 with XFCE. Which do you think is better? OH ALSO, or would Lubuntu also be a good or better choice?
Linux Mint 8 vs Ubuntu 9.10 vs Fedora 12
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 3, 2010
want to know whats best and why. keep it open minded if you can lol. just to clarify this is more or less a debate, not an "I want to install something that does this..." kind of thing.
can be for the KDE version the Gnome or any other existing distro that comes from mint, fedora, or ubuntu. 64 bit or 32 bit (or power pc, arm..........)
have fun, you have too.
Ubuntu 10.10 RC no sound on Macbook pro 13.3"
location: linux.com - date: October 6, 2010
Hi, I recently bought a macbook pro 13.3 inch.
and I installed ubuntu 10.10 RC on it.
By following wiki guide:
Almost works fine.
But despite add "options snd-hda-intel model=mbp55" or not, there is no sound
I've checked alsa-mixer that "PCM" and "MASTER" are not mute.
Does someone has the same problem? or any suggestion?
there is an unfinished wiki for maverick on macbook, but I cant not wait :(
Fresh Linux Mint 14, No GRUB.
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 6, 2012
Hi All, I hope this is not a redundant post or common issue, but I couldn't solve my issue myself or by searching other threads and google.
Yesterday I installed Windows 8 on a small partition, followed by Linux Mint 14 MATE on another small partition with plans to make the rest of the space shared. However, I never got a GRUB menu at startup! I tried following the instructions on the GRUB info page from google by doing something like:
# grub-install /dev/sda
but I don't really know my way around GRUB, and when I rebooted I just got the grub prompt that looked like
and I couldn't get out. I used the install USB I used to run Mint from USB, from which I did something like:
install -d /mnt/mount !!to create a mount point
mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/mount !!sda1 is the Mint partition
grub-install --root-directory=/mnt/mount sda
This got me back where I started, and I don't want to risk losing computer access again, so I came for help
Fedora 13 32bit and then Linux Mint 32bit and then Ubuntu 10.04 32bit
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 9, 2010
Guys I'm really crappy at dealing with partitioning, how do I go about this one, installing Fedora 13, Linux Mint and Ubuntu 10.04 in that exact order and I want GRUB to come from Ubuntu.
I've tried partitioning on my own and even in my own inexperienced observation, I think I've created some form of HDD dystopia...reason being is that the paritions were created haphazardly just to go ahead with the installs.
To make things simple, which words should I render all too important during partition and how do I put these words together to create a respectably partitioned HDD for all 3 OSes.
PS I like the idea of installing all 3 and just space swap between the trio. How do I do this?
Ubuntu 9.10 or Super OS or Linux Mint
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 8, 2010
I've already installed the Ubuntu 9.10 and, in the process of trying to learn more about the "How to's" of using it, I came across some other versions that created questions.
Another version is called the "Super OS" (hacktolive.org/wiki/Super_OS) that is, supposedly ver. 9.10 with lots of improvements/updates.
Another one, with a comparison to ver 9.10, is Linux Mint. (linuxbsdos.com/2010/01/16/linux-mint-8-vs-ubuntu-9-10/)
Is Super OS that much improved over the original ver 9.10?
Is Linux Mint really that much more "user friendly" but actually straying away from the Ubuntu that it is based on?
Since I am one that is not familiar with "writing" programs, and didn't start playing with computers really until Windough$ 95, would either of these be an easier to operate system than ver. 9.10?
If Super OS is much easier, since I've already done a dual boot, how easy would it be to maybe "upgrade" 9.10 to Super OS?
