No sound on etch when using video players
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
I have a problem with etch on AMD64 - no sound on any video player.
I am running a 2.6.15 kernel.
My sound card is recognised; cat /proc/asound/cards shows the following:
0 [CK804 ]: NFORCE - NVidia CK804
NVidia CK804 with ALC850 at 0xd3103000, irq 17
1 [UART ]: MPU-401 UART - MPU-401 UART
MPU-401 UART at 0x330, irq 10
I can play audio CDs using the KDE player kscd but the gnome player and
xmms do not work.
No matter which video player I use - totem, mplayer or kaffeine - I
get no sound.
With mplayer, the following output is seen:
Opening audio decoder: [liba52] AC3 decoding with liba52
Using SSE optimized IMDCT transform
AC3: 2.0 (stereo) 48000 Hz 448.0 kbit/s
Using MMX optimized resampler
AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 2 ch, s16le, 448.0 kbit/29.17% (ratio: 56000->192000)
Selected audio codec: [a52] afm: liba52 (AC3-liba52)
My config file for mplayer has the audio option set to alsa.
I have tried using esd after changing the option but to no avail.
When I run totem or kaffaine from a terminal, there is no output
relating to sound. The sound controls are active in both.
Any help in debugging this would be greatly appreciated.
Program testing can best show the presence of errors but never their absence.
