Alsa install problem
- date: May 12, 2006
I have just stuck in alsa here. OSS used work fine on any distro, but now that's no more, and I need alsa as a dependency. The box is LFS-5.0 (and later) with kernel 220.127.116.11, gcc-3.3.1, and alsa-1.0.11 as per the book. I get no files at all in /etc, and no sound. Even pinching a few from a nearby RHEL installation didn't help. I read a bit, did an su - root, and loosened permissions on the devices. No /dev/snd exists, but /dev/dsp, dsp1 and a whole lot of nutty ones do (mixer, mpu401, midi, etc).
which: no dialog in (/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/ssl/bin:/usr/jre1.5.0_01/bin:/opt/bin)
which: no whiptail in (/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/ssl/bin:/usr/jre1.5.0_01/bin:/opt/bin)
Error, dialog or whiptail not found.

Slackware 12.2: Alsa sound works for root but not for user.
location: linuxquestions.com - date: April 28, 2009
I am about to pull my hair out of my head with getting sound to work in my user account. It works fine in the root account, though. I just installed Slackware 12.2 (kernel 18.104.22.168-smp) on an ECS K7VTA3 v8.0 with an AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2700+ processor. Previously, I was running Slackware 10.2 with the stock 2.4 kernel. Alsa sound worked perfectly with the VIA VT82xx Audio Controller module (snd-via82xx). All I had to do then was change some permissions on some device files (/dev/audio*, /dev/dsp*, /dev/mixer*, etc) and sound just worked.
Now that I have installed Slackware 12.2, I have tried everything to get it to work in my user account with (almost) no success (It did work briefly once by running alsaconf in a Konsole after running "su"). I'm running KDE 3.5 and checked to make sure that the sound system is turned on. It certainly works under root in any case. I made sure that my user account shows up in the appropriate groups. The groups command yi
[SOLVED] Slackware 13 Sound Problem
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 24, 2010
I'm new to the forum, althought I'm using linux distros (and trying to learn more about the system) for some months. Now I'm trying the new Slackware 13, and I'm having some problems with the sound card. For some reason, the sound doesn't work only on Slack, being totally functional on Windows or Ubuntu, for example.
The problem is basic this: I run the "alsaconf" command, the card is detected as expected, everything goes alright. I use "alsamixer", turn all the bars unmuted and raise then all. I get no error messages in all this process, but, as I said, my sound doesn't work.
My card, from the "lspci" command, is as follows: "00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 03)".
My "/etc/modprobe.d/sound" is written in this way:
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
I hope you can help me getting a solution to this! Thanks in advance!

Where exactly is the location of source codes for alsa sound control?

Using 14.04 upgraded by internet from 13.10 on a new build of parts.
MSI Z97 Guard Pro /I5 processor /8 gig ram / 500 gig Sata HD / LG BH16NS40 Blu-Ray/DVD WRITER Sata cdrom. New speakers from logitec stereo and sub woofer.
I used the CDROM to load the system so it worked. But at first I had problems with the DVD not playing DVD (The Green Mile). With Google search and help from this website, I got the DVD playing by adding LIBDVDCSS and restricted files. The sound was terrible. The sound goes on and off like a machine gun, and it is full of static. Also later I realized that the system sounds (pop for example) repeats about 10 times when any thing ask for a sound like volume change while watching the movie. I am thinking that the analog and the digital streams are fighting for the output instead of blending together in the mixer. The system sounds are doing the same. So the result is that it cuts off the sound when it gets signal from one of the other sources. any thing would hel

For Google Earth Google have a .deb file to download and even provide a 64 bit version though if you are using a 64 bit distribution you may have a few issues with Google Earth.

I run hardy 804 but I messed up by partly updating to intrepid. I can't hear any sound anymore. I have C-media souond card and can see my card in the logs, eg:

I ran gnome-alsamixer, but speakers setting seem ok, please see screenshot.
Could someone give me some insight into what might be the cause ?
Sound problem on Toshiba Satellite A60
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 17, 2005
I've installed Kubuntu last week on my Toshiba Satellite A60 and almost everything is working flawlessly..except the sound card (a Realtek SL250).
After booting, I get a message telling :
Sound server information message
Error while initializing the sound driver
device : default can't be opened for playback (No such file or directory)
The sound server will continue, using the null outpout device.
I've installed all Alsa stuffs, but I have still the same message, and the sound isn't working..
Any body can help me?
[SOLVED] Alsa, Sound and Browsers
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 25, 2014
Recently I lost all sound in my web browsers. This was nearly all the sudden one day I shutdown and the next nothing. I have tried many solutions listed online and nothing has worked. First I tired working with flash and nothing, I try reinstalling the browser and several other new ones, still nothing.
I have also reinstalled the alsa, which has now messed up all system sounds. At first it was just the browsers, now I cant even get an advanced list of sound devices. The sound, alsa and other components are some I am completely unfamiliar with.
I am running a x64 debian based system, a custom build built off of the Ubuntu system with KDE. I do have HDMI though I do not use that as my sound output right now. Any help is much appreciated, or any links to valuable information regarding the sound components of Linux...
In my Phonon settings I have available for sound cards Built-in audio, high definition audio controller, AK5370 I/F A/D Converter? I have tried to change these
