Subject description: ALSA config not retained
 

Puppy 2.17 seems unable to retain its ALSA configuration settings. This was not a problem with previous Puppy versions on my system. Therefore sound card needs to be re-detected on every reboot.

Woof-Woof is played OK after the card has been correctly detected, but sound in Skype is broken as well. Simple script error somewhere?

Subject description: Alsa wizard settings get lost each reboot
 

I'm running 2.16 (frugal install) using basic JWM and I'm getting a similar problem. I have a soundblaster card and also basic sound through the mother board. The SB card is much better quality, but each time I reconfigure puppy to use it using the Alsa Wizard, the settings are retained only until the next reboot, when Puppy defaults back to on-board sound.

I found this in the developers forum for Saturday, August 4, 2007:

ALSA-config
alsaconf-parameters (ES1869 on board) are not kept after reboot

work fine in 2.16 en earlier.

Puppy work great on my PII 333MHz with 128MB ram!


I have a vague memory of seeing an entry in this forum about this problem but I have been unable to track it down - I can't remember who replied or the details. As not too many people seem to have this problem I'm guessing it's probably something simple but I can't get a handle on it.

Any help would be appreciated.

UPDATE
I moved my SB card to a different slot
Puppy now uses the SB card as the default.
Got no idea why it works this way.

I think this will help anyone having this problem:

Edit /etc/modprobe.conf

In the ALSA section you will find this line:

isapnp=0

Just change it to:

isapnp=1

Greetings.

Thanks, sasito-linux.
That worked perfectly for me.
For the record, I performed that operation on a hard drive installation of puppy3.01.

I have a scenario in this 2.15 where sound works normally but then sometimes goes to a max of about 1/3 normal. Dunno what causes it but seems to occur after having spent some time in the OS.

A reboot always sorts it out so far but I'll be trying the above fix though my problem isn't the same.

What's the story with changing the isapnp parameter # in that it fixes the above described problem?

Jonyo,

I don't know, I was hoping the poster would have explained.

Suppose isapnp is cryptic for ISA PNP device?

Suppose isapnp=1 is yes and isapnp=0 is no don't use the pnp portion ??

Regarding relocating cards, it's an old ISA trick that was sometimes necessary to eliminate conflicts or even get it recognized properly. The ISA apparently had lower IRQ ranges than PCI. An old ISA computer was more prone to run into conflicts between cards.

Remember the hardware jumpers and dip switches? When working on the old machines, I'd mark the cards when removing and put them back in the same slots.

A lot of this post is guess work on my part. Don't rely on it. Main thing is remember it (the toggle and changing cards) or make notes in the event you run into a legacy sound card. I guess.

Bruce
