Thread: No sound in freshly installed Mandriva 2009

  1. No sound in freshly installed Mandriva 2009

    I've just installed a Mandriva 2009 (Free version) and the install went
    smoothly. However, Mandriva couldn't find a sound card during install.
    Later, harddrake did find something which looks like an USB sound card
    but this doesn't work either. What can I check to diagnose the problem?

    The motherboard is an Asus M2N-SLI (Athlon X2 5000, NForce 560SLI)

    Computers requiring the snd_hda_intel Sound Driver have no sound:
    https://qa.mandriva.com/show_bug.cgi?id=44855

    You will need to wait for a kernel update to fix this, or to use a
    kernel-linus (but it doesn't have the Mandriva Patches so you will loose
    some functionalities)

    what is the output of lspcidrake -v | fgrep -i AUDIO?

    santo

    P.S.

    maybe you should post from Mandriva instead of windows....

    snd_usb_audio : Unknown|PnP Audio Device [Audio|Control Device]
    (vendor:0d8c device:0201)

    Actually figured it out. KMixer has by default a "Speaker1" volume
    slider, but the USB sound device is attached to a "Speaker2" which
    should be added.

    being, on Windows.

  7. score rules...?



    Again something I do not know...

    All posting appearing in Kode have 0 as score...but in the tread :

    Re: No sound in freshly installed Mandriva 2009

    there is a red sign, "no entry" type, and a -100 ...

    I never deal with scores or killfiles and so on... ( I do not know how to
    use them ...yet...)
    Just wondering how that symbol and value appeared

    Thanks

    Your News reader decides what symbol/indicator/color to set a post
    based on the score. You pick the values which works best for you and
    the reader.

    Example: I might set -666 for trolls or people I need to
    give a hard time.

    For posts I do not want to see I set them -9999.

    I use slrn which allows me to set an expire date. Example

    [ alt.os.linux.mandriva ]
    Score: =-9999
    Expires: 11/27/2008
    Subject: Scripting, UPS Selection

    I have a nightly batch job which runs cleanscore. It cleans out score
    entries with a date =< current date.


    > Just wondering how that symbol and value appeared


    Reader dependent on the symbol, and I have to guess you had set the
    score value since I do not use knode.

    You may want to look through the Knode Handbook under the Help
    selection top right in Knodes's task bar or just hit the F1 key.

    Again in my playing/fooling around I must have clicked something without
    noticing...
    now I 'll trying consciously and see if I learn how to use them...
