Re: VIA sound problem
I've been completely unable to get sound to work with Debian and any
sound card, ever and I've been running Debian for years. My last
attempt was the testing distro and 2.6.8 on a box with the via 82xxx
card build into the MB. I fiinally got it to actually install so the
/dev/dsp device was recognized and the alsa mixer must think there is
something there because it lets me adjust the gain, but no noise from
anything. Dumping wave files to /dev/dsp or /dev/audio doesn't even
work. I've also installed SUSE 9.1 which is running a 2.6.x kernel and
it works fine. Sounds good. I compared the modules and as far as I can
tell they are the same.
Until I installed SUSE, I had pretty much figured sound and Linux
weren't gonna happen.
Just as an aside, I installed CUPS and I can't print. It says there
isn't anything connected to the port, however during install it went out
and found the printer and reported back to me that it was the HP
LaserJet 6L so at some point something found a printer connected to the
Also K3B cant find dvd+rw-format even though it is in the same directory
and has the same permissions as growisofs.
I know testing isn't perfect, but something strange is going on here.
