Did you check OSS emulation in the kernel build?


CD players, mpg123, and ogg123 want to use /dev/dsp
which only appears if you have OSS emulation (to
the best of my knowledge).

Well, I played OSS on this very system before migrating to Alsa to try if fbxine would work better. (It does not). So all that stuff is still around.

Do you only have one soundcard?


Do you only have one CD player?

Hi Debian!

I spoke to soon, saying that the migration to alsa was a piece of cake.

I have all sound, but no cd audio. I did have that with oss.

The cd slider does not show up in aumix nor alsamixer.

I googled for a clue.

libcdaudio is installed of course.

Anybody give me a hint?

To install alsa:
1. I enabled alsa and the card in the kernel but without modules.
2. I installed alsa-base.

That gave me sound. I forgot to test the cd, until today.
