PostPosted: Thu 19 May 2005, 10:53    Post subject:  Getting sound to work  

I have searched for a wiki or FAQ page on sound - is there one? I have a Terratec sound card that uses the snd-fm801 sound driver. Other distros have had varied success setting it up, but it does work with Vector Linux. I get an error when I try to play sounds with snack telling me that it cannot write to /dev/sound/dsp.

lsmod tells me that 'soundcore' is the only sound module loaded. I have tried

modprobe snd-fm801

from the command line, but the module cannot be found. Does anyone have suggestions about what I can do?

Morten

have a look in /lib/modules to see if your module is there, if not you will have to install it and run insmod again.

I'm not sure if you can write to /lib/modules but if you read the Puppy main pages there is info there that should help.

Any module name starting with "snd-" is an Alsa sound driver, and Puppy does not yet support Alsa, only OSS.

You can see all the OSS driver modules in /lib/modules/2.6/sound/oss/
-- maybe one of those will work?

AD1816 or
AD1848

Thanks for the help - Niether "ad1816" nor "ad1848" worked, but the "forte" driver (included on the Puppy CD) works without problems.

Just to be precise: when I say it works, it is because gxine produces sound. Snack still has the same problem, but this doesn't bother me seeing as gxine can do everything that Snack can.

mskaruupj,
can you let me know the sound chip numbers?
Start -> Control panel -> hardware probe -> Modules

...you'll see the two numbers, they look like 2345:5678
