Subject: [gentoo-user] After yrs of silence... I need sound
Date: Sun, 06 Sep 2009 21:42:28
1 I've gone literally for yrs with no sound on my desktop machines.... I
2 rarely find a need for it.
4 But now I'm trying to take some online courses and find trying to work
5 on windows machine when coding and other sorts of editor intensive
6 stuff is involved... I really feel much more adept on linux.
8 Anyway cutting to the chase... its been so long since I even looked
9 into gettting sound working.. I'm sort of stunned at the realization I
10 have no clue at all as to how to get started.
12 I hoped to avoid reading acres of documentation. Starting way at the
13 bottom etc etc.
15 Hoping some kind sole will take the time to provide a brief outline
16 off the top of there head... how to get started and cut right to the
17 chase in an hour or two.
19 My setup is profile x86/2008.0
20 On this architecture and kernel <past the `-r1' is my own versioning
21 Linux reader 2.6.30-gentoo-r1_rdr_5 #6 [...]i686 Intel(R) Celeron(R)
22 CPU 3.06GHz GenuineIntel GNU/Linux
23 I try to keep within a week or two being up to date most of the time.
25 I've got speakers hooked up at back of the machine in the `green'
26 hole.
28 I get nothing sound wise when attempting to play a music or video
29 file.
31 Neither do I see any errors: mplayer some.wav from a cmdprompt shows
32 the file playing... but I'm hearing nothing.
34 Below are a few chunks of info that hopefully will be useful to
35 someone diagnostically:
37 My kernel has also enabled pci sound devices/:
38 <M> (Creative) Ensoniq AudioPCI 1370
39 <M> (Creative) Ensoniq AudioPCI 1371/1373
