For an easy install we will be using the ATrpms repository.
1. Load up a terminal window if you are in the graphic interface.
2. Switch to the root user by entering the command “su -” (without the quotes) and typing in your root password
3. Edit the file /etc/yum.conf. Using nano we type the command:
nano -w /etc/yum.conf
4. If you have already configured yum to use the ATrpms repository then append “*alsa*” to the end of the “includepkgs” line and skip the next setup. Otherwise continue on.
5. Add the following to the bottom of this file:
name=EL $releasever - $basearch - ATrpms
6. Save the file. In nano you press Ctrl-X, answer yes to the “Save modified buffer” question and then press enter on the file name to write.
7. If you have not previously setup ATrpms execute the following command:
rpm --import http://ATrpms.net/RPM-GPG-KEY.atrpms
8. Now execute the following command:
yum install alsa-driver alsa-kmdl-`uname -r`
9. Reboot your system and you will be using the updated ALSA module.
Remember that you may need to adjust your volume settings.
When trying to play a CD with Sound Juicer, I'm getting error “Could not open audio device for playback”
Reason: Internal GStreamer error: state change failed. Please file a bug at http://bugzilla.gnome.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=GStreamer.
Totem movie player plays video without any sound at all.
However, I can use cdcd play to CD's with no problem at all from the command prompt.
Debian reference suggests to use speaker-test which givesthe next result:
Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 1 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
ALSA lib pcm_dmix.c:996:(snd_pcm_dmix_open) unable to open slave
Playback open error: -2,No such file or directory
What should I do next in order to fix sound?
