When I'm listening to music, it will cut out sometimes, then cut back in. I've used Banshee and Rhythmbox, and they both do the same thing. Also, I have a volume control wheel on my laptop and when I use it, nothing happens-I have to use the volume control on the tool bar, so could you help me? I'm using Hardy 8.04.
Thanks in advance
slamd64 sound problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 20, 2009
I hope I'm posting this in the right place, there doesn't seem to be a section for slamd64 and I'm still waiting for my account to be activated on the official slamd64 forum.
Well I installed slamd64 last night, and everything is going pretty well so far. The only problem I'm having is the sound is muted every time I boot up. I also had this problem in Slackware, but I could fix it by running "alsamixer", unmuting "Analog F", then running "alsactl store" to make the settings apply at startup.
In Slamd64, the settings aren't applying at startup.
Debian 7 sound problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 8, 2014
i've installed Debian 7.4 stable on my Dell inspiron 530 desktop, but I am having trouble getting the sound to work.
on alsamixer, the main and pcm don't have any option to unmute or mute, everything that can be set to 00 is.
lspci | grep audio gives:
01:00.1 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI RV620 HDMI Audio [Radeon HD 3400 Series]
02:00.0 Audio device: Creative Labs SB X-Fi
any advice on packages I need or configurations to do?
thanks in advance
teamspeak, sound problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 8, 2004
I am trying to get a ts-client on linux to work...
from what i have read is that the ts-client is trying to access /dev/dsp which is occupied by gnome's esd. I have tried it to start with: esddsp ./teamspeak but haven't gotten any luck . artsdsp seems to work for sound output (I hear: "link engaged") and not for input, nor the voices of my teammates.
My possible solution from what i have read in the fora:
In ALSA you can make two sound devices for one device (correct me if I am wrong!). I can make one regular /dev/dsp and /dev/dspts for teamspeak. So:
1. Is this possible, if not what is another solution?
2. how do I install and configure alsa in fedora? (I dislike rpm-deps...)
3. how do I make the two devices?
thx for your help.
gNewSense sound problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 5, 2011
Hi! Hope this is in the right section. I installed gNewSense 2.2 last year & sound was great in headphones (not speakers). I went to another OS but installed gNewSense 2.3 just today & now the sound doesn't work at all. I think Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller is my audio driver? That's the output of lspci. Just wondering if anyone knows why my sound doesn't work or how I can fix it. I'm thinking it's the sound card obviously but don't know if there is a nonpropietary alternative out there or not. Thanks!
Ubuntu 9.10 in VMWare sound problem
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 22, 2010
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 on VMWare, then VMWare Tools, then VLC - and met severe problems with sound. When I play video or audio in VLC (no matter what format or codec) sound is interrupted every second for half-second, so it's like dotted line. I tried every possible option in VLC Preferences - no effect. In other players, like gnome-mplayer 098 sound almost perfect - but I hear "tick" every half-second. What can I do? Is it problem with codecs or sound drivers?
In host OS - win7 - everything Ok. In other host OS - CentOS 4.3 for example - all Ok too.

Fedora 13 sound problem HDA Intel
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 22, 2010
I've a HP 420 laptop (it looks like it's not sold everywhere, here are some specifications - Spanish site: http://h10010.www1.hp.com/wwpc/cl/es...8-4158858.html) and I've recently installed Fedora 13. Everything works smoothly, except for the audio device, which doesn't output sound through the external speakers (headphones work, though).
Very odd sound problem in Fedora Core 3
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 29, 2004
Hi. I like using Fedora, but it never ceases to amaze me the weird things I have to sort out with each release. OK, here goes.
When I run the soundcard detection program, it lists these details
Vendor : Esoniq (This should be Creative Labs but oh well)
Model : ES1370 [audiopci]
Module : snd-ens1370
When I click Play Test Sound, it works all fine and dandy. But, the volume control at the top in Gnome refuses to let me raise the volume and when I right click on it and click Open Volume Control, this is what it says
Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices can be found.
This completely baffles me....I know damn well the card is supported, I used it in SUSE. Plus the thing can play it in Fedora when I go into soundcard detection.
Also, has anyone else had trouble creating desktop icons in Fedora 3? It is definately not a Gnome problem, I did fine in Ubuntu with Gnome 2.8. It won't let me add them.
