Sound

Post by justinkelly » 2005/03/28 23:52:44

Hi All

I havent been able to get sound working on my PowerMac G4

i get a number of different error messages - see below

While opening the Volume Control in GNOME
[code]
Sorry, no mixer elements and/or devices found
[/code]

While starting KDE
[code]
Sound server informational message

Error while initializing the sound driver

device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file or directory)

The sound server will now continue, using the null output device.
[/code]

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Cheers

Justin Kelly

Hi All

To get sound working in CentOS PPC 4 beta 2 add the following lines to /etc/modprobe.conf

#ALSA portion
alias char-major-116* snd
alias snd-card-0 snd_powermac

#OSS/Free portion
alias char-major-14* soundcore
alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0

# card #1
alias sound-service-0-0 snd-mixer-oss
alias sound-service-0-1 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-3 snd-pcm-oss
alias sound-service-0-8 snd-seq-oss
alias sound-service-0-12 snd-pcm-oss

install snd-card-0 /sbin/modprobe ~@~Signore-install snd-card-0 && { /usr/sbin/aslsactl restore >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }
remove snd-card-0 { /usr/sbin/alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }; /sbin/modprobe -r ~@~Signore-remove
install sound-slot-0 /sbin/modporbe ~@~Signore-install sound-slot-0 && { /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 22>&1 || :; }
remove sound-slot-0 { /sbin/modprobe -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >>/dev/null 2>&1 || :; }; /sbin/modprobe -r ~@~Signore-remove ~

if you still have problems try /sbin/modprobe snd_powermac

cheers
