PostPosted: Thu 29 Dec 2011, 20:41    Post_subject:  No sound ES1371 Ensoniq Audio PCI
Sub_title: No sound whatsoever Live CD Wary 5.2.2 and Slacko 5.3.1
 

I believe I have been through all the settings in the ALSA Sound Wizard and the sound mixer. I have made sure that volume is turned up and not muted. There is a sound icon at the bottom of the screen that seems to be functioning. I have tried sound from the internet and playing an audio cd. All indications are that the tracks or sound clips are being played, but there is no sound.

I have noticed with this sound card there are 2 devices differentiated as follows.
ES1371 DAC2/ADC
ES1371 DAC1

I have a windows partition set up and I am getting sound there so I believe the card is ok.

My system configuration is as follows:

Micron Millenia Desktop
Pentium III (Coppermine) 733mghz
774MB Memory
ES1371 Ensoniq Audio PCI

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks
Doug

I am just a newb, but I have just had a similar problem with an older laptop. My sound card is an es1869 and the driver is snd-es18xx

Try to follow what I did at the following url:

http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=74740

except you would probably use the driver snd-ens1371 instead of snd-es18xx

You will also need your sound cards IRQ and DMA settings. You might get these from your windows or bios.

Thanks for the help.

I am looking into the differences between my PCI card and your Pnp ISA card so I make sure I get all the steps right.

As it turns out, I am finding a lot of postings in numerous forums regarding problems with the Ensoniq 1371 Audio PCI card across many Linux distros.

Thanks again
Doug

PostPosted: Mon 02 Jan 2012, 17:19    Post_subject: no sound icon , no sound
Sub_title: sound icon disappeared and there is no longer any sound
 

my Puppy 5.3.1 no longer shows a sound icon, and naturally there is no sound.
alsa was unable to elicit a "woof" and I could not do anything else with it.
the mixer shows its volume at midpoints.

Its sound worked well after its install but at one point the sound level icon was atop some of the internet pages and when they went away the icon may have gone with them.

There is connectivity as I hear a click on shutoff.

I found a volume subroutine but do not know how much of it toenter.
it begins " gcc -o setvol.c "

Do not know for sure this will work for you but. . .

How I patched my Lucid 5.2.8 operating system so that my sound would work after rebooting time after time. This works on a Compaq Pavilion XH485 laptop with minor changes should work on other systems **Note in order for this patch to work ALSA sound wizard must find your sound card at least once.** In my case I had to run wizard every time I rebooted if I wanted sound, until I hard patched it, as explained below.

I looked at the “/etc/init.d/10alsa” file to see what or where it was looking for the sound card. I found it was around line 22. Somehow it was not finding what it wanted in the “/etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf” file and aborted the sound card configuration.
I remed (#) out the original line at line 22 looking for the info in the “/etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf” file and added a new line that stated the exact sound card info from the “alsa.conf” file at line 23.

In my case the sound chip was a Maestro3 and the “alsa.conf” file stated:
“Alis snd-card-0 snd-maestro3“ So I created a new line in "/etc/init.d/10alsa" file as follows:
“( 23 SNDMODLIST=" snd-card-0 snd-maestro3 " )

Main thing here is to look over your "/etc/init.d/10alsa" file and your "/etc/modprobe.d/alsaconf" file to see if you can patch it to work for you. Your sound chip will most likely be different than mine so use what your file says you have.

Hope this helps others F.G.

Hey what am I saying this computer is an HP Pavilion not a Compaq. . . . I never can keep it straight because I am always messing with a different computer on any given day. F.G.

Thanks for your solution, I solved it by reinstalling the system. {Required no thinking on my part.}
