    Sound card not working

    Locked

    by pawanmo ·

    I have recently installed Red hat 8.0 Linux on my PC.
    The system is dual booting with win98 and Red hat
    I have Yamaha Xwave sound card. This card is not working in Red hat linux. As I am not familier with Linux, I don’t know what to do. The card taken by Linux is someting like “cmd3000” etc.
    And it gives error “Aneable to open sound mixer” when i try to play audio cd.
    Where I can get Driver for the sound card which works with Red hat 8.0

      Search the web site of your card, download driver for Linux, if not available, then nothing we can do. Or buy a new card that supports both Windows and Linux.

      Redhat 8’s default soundcard detection system has never found any of my soundcards either. There is a package on one of the cds that you can install called sndconfig-x.x.x, or it may allready be installed. Change to root and run sndconfig (may have to type whole path /sbin/sndconfig) It will take you through a simple setup process and your soundcard should work after that.
      Good luck.

      Visit http://www.alsa-project.org and download the alsa rpms for
      the onboard sound card. Install on your system and follow
      the instructions on the alsa site.

      You can download the rpm files for your version of redhat
      from alsa-project site and then, do / check the following:

      Add the following lines to /etc/modules.conf after installing
      the rpm:
      alias char-major-116 snd
      alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0 (substitute with the Yamaha
      snd name here)
      alias char-major-14 soundcore
      alias sound-slot-0 snd-card-0
      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

      After that at # prompt, type following commands:
      # amixer set Master 80% unmute
      # amixer set PCM 80% unmute
      # amixer set CD 80% unmute
      # amixer set Headphone 80% unmute

      Try playing a sound file. You can reboot and get into kde
      and check out the sound in xmms, or wherever.
