How do I enable sound :(


Recommended Posts

what distro are you running ?

what hardware have you got ?

 

have you tried alsamixer ? make sure nothing is 'muted' press 'm' to mute/unmute

 

also check the mp3 plugin is loaded in xmms

 

cheers

I'm running Gentoo, and I have a soundblaster, and when I try alsamixer I get alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device.

 

My output plugin is ALSA1.2.10 output plugin [libALSA.so] whenever I open an mp3 I get ' failed to open audio output: ALSA 1.2.10 output plugin' same with OSS driver

Alright, xmms opens mp3's now, and plays them, the thing is I don't hear anything from my speakers. I maxed out EVERYTHING in alsamixer and I still get nothing :'(

PROBLEM SOLVED :D I just had to go into alsamixer and Unmute it :D There were little boxes all marked MM and all I had to do was check M for each one :) Thanks to Milligan.
