Hello all, I got my Turtle Beach Santa Cruz working with alsa on the 2.6 test 11 kernel, however it does not mix sounds together.... I can only hear one sound from one program at once. I have heard that other people have gotten the cs46xx driver to mix multiple sounds, but I do not know how to do this. Can anyone explain to me how to do so?

Maybe you typed this in by hand, or the menu config has changed from your version to my version 2.6.0-test11/test7, where both OSS API emulation and OSS Sequencer API have square bracketed selection boxes, which seems to mean that those two items are options to the modules listed above, not individual parts of the kernel which can be compiled as modules. Therefore you cant make them into modules.

That's the card I've got, works great here. In the ALSA PCI drivers section of your kernel config, did you select the Cirrus Logic New DSP Support?

GRR, I'm still having some annoying issue with getting ALSA working.. I'm running 2.6.0-test11, and 1.0.0_rc2 of alsa-lib and alsa-utils, and getting the following:
Code:

Weirdness.. What's going on here?

I have all the ALSA stuff compiled as modules.

Even though the alsasound supposedly finishes with [ OK ], there's no sound.. alsamixer is giving me that annoying "alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory" error message..

Aha, I fixed my problem by doing a quick 'make clean'..

I just have to resolve some funny issues name mismatches concerning alsactl and then everything will be dandy. But currently, I think I'll just relax and listen to some ALSA-powered musical goodness ;).

Thanks for the howto people, i got sound working for my onboard dsp using the via82xx module compiled in, with kernel 2.6.0 test 11 and kde 3.2 beta 2.

And life is good :D

I couldn't get sound working with everything compiled into the kernel, or with modules and using the alsa script, but putting alsa modules in modules.autoload worked. I do still have the alsa ebuilds other that alsa-driver emerged, and my mixer levels are saved, but perhaps that is by Kmix. Just another possibility for those who can't get it working the other ways.

If you use modules and the alsasound script added to 'boot', the most likely reason for the modules not autoloading is a wrong /etc/modules.d/alsa file, or not running update-modules after editing this file.

I compiled alsa into the kernel and added alsasound to boot. Everything works but when I shutdown and the mixer levels are stored, it gives this error: "modprobe: FATAL module snd_card_1 not found" for snd_card_1 through 7. I commented out that part of the alsasound script.

Well i followed the mini how-to and it was pretty painless, sound in kde works (im guessing this means the alsa part works), sound in xmms works (also guessing this means oss emulation/wrapper/whatever-it-is works), but sound in gaim stopped working.

It has been set on automatic and working fine, would probably work fine if i booted back to 2.4.xx. If I change the type of sound system from automatic to arts the sound is severly delayed. No other options work.

I did have this problem in 2.4 once before a long time ago, Ive since formated this drive and reinstalled gentoo and it fixed the problem.

Any suggestions appreciated.

PS: just an after thought but does gnome have some kind of mixer that also needs to be updated?

I have an audigy2 card (emu10k2) and while playing around with all this ALSA stuff I tinkered a lot with alsamixer. Well the mess ended with me having no sound, and no errors, very hard to debug :wink: .

A thing worth trying if you have a hard time troubleshooting:

/etc/init.d/alsasound stop
rm /etc/asound.state
reboot

This will reset alsa settings to "factory defaults".

Ok, I have followed the HOW-TO, but I still have som problems. When I use esd-sound in xmms, the sound lags from time to time and by some funny reason, I can't use alsalibs in xmms :( (OSS in xmms really sounds awful)

I get no sound! When I run amixer set Master 100 mute, it says "amixer: Unable to find simple control 'Master,' 0". Similar things occur for amixer set [whatever] unmute.

Also, when I run aplay, it gives me the message

"ALSA lib pcm_hw.c:1055:(snd_pcm_hw_open) open /dev/snd/pcmC0D0p failed: No such file or directory
aplay: main:502: audio open error: No such file or directory"

What could be wrong?

EDIT: Solved.

PostPosted: Wed Dec 24, 2003 5:19 pm    Post subject: compile problems with kdelibs-3.1.4 (USE contains alsa) Reply with quote

Can someone help me get my emu10k1 working again?

I originally compiled kde under kernel 2.4 and everything worked. Upgraded to kernel 2.6.0 using the included drivers (built as modules) and continued to work. Then I got the bright idea of updating kde... no joy. kdebase wants to emerge alsa-drivers. Alsa-drivers says it's only for kernel 2.4.

Kernel sound modules are compiled and loaded, and alsamixer runs, finds the stuff for my soundcard. Guess I'll emerge xmms again and see if it still plays.

I want kernel 2.6, sound modules, and kde latest version with USE=alsa. Any advice towards this end would be appreciated.

emerge'ing xmms now to test.

-- update --

ok, sound IS working... xmms plays fine, about to test MIDIs.

Hmm, xmms is buggy (can't right-click playlist when empty) and I can't add a .mid file to the playlist???

How can I test MIDI (I have some .mid files)?

-- update --

going to re-emerge alsa-lib and alsa-utils, also emerge alsaplayer

-- update --

alsaplayer emerge'd no problem, but it also only plays mp3s (at least not MIDI). Won't even put the file in the playlist!

How can I play (or at least try) a MIDI file?

-- update --

and kdelibs still wants alsa-driver, even after I emerged alsa-lib and alsa-utils. Injecting alsa-driver and trying (again) to emerge kdelibs now that I re-emerged alsa-utils and alsa-lib

Code:

deviceman.cc: In member function `int DeviceManager::initManager()':

awesome, thanks that howto really helped me out. I was wondering if I was supposed to merge alsa-utils in 2.6 or not. I knew that alsa-drivers was unecessary already. My sound works great. I used aplay to test it, and it plays the wav files just right. the amixer is set just fine and everything.

The one problem I'm having is in xmms, the most important audio application I have (go figure). I installed the alsa plugin for it and switched from OSS to alsa. I'm using an emu10k1 btw. I set the alsa output plugin to EMU10K1 FX8010. XMMS appears to work fine, but no sound comes out the speakers. If I set it to anything else, it gives me two errors. buffer size == period size. and couldn't open audio. Sound comes out when I use OSS, but that's because I have the emulation installed. It sounds like crap if I use that.

As I said, it appears that alsa is installed and working properly. If it wasn't, why would aplay sound just fine? Anyone got any clues? Is the alsa plugin for xmms just not updated for 2.6? Thanks a zillion.

I have the same problem and I too commented those parts out of alsasound script. :roll:

When I get into Linux later in the day, I'll show you my Sound configuration for ALSA.

I have an Audigy 2 (snd-emu10k1) and 2.1 speakers. Works fine, albeit the sound on my speakers is lower on Linux than Windows, probably on account of Linux having all sound options at 100% (using KMix)

I've compiled in all of the ALSA stuff as modules and added the alsasound script to the boot runlevel. ALSA works fine no problems so far, except at boot it complains that the module is already in the kernel? Has anyone found a cure for this?

the alsasound boot level script has a couple minor errors where it checks for
a couple of the same modules, twice.

here is a fixed alsasound will eliminate the redundant module loading.

this has been reported in bugzilla, i am still trying to locate it. once i do, i will
post it here.

edit:
here is the bug listing on gentoo bugzilla...
alsasound tries to install some modules twice on boot under 2.6

My problem is that I can use sound _only_ through alsa - no oss/dsp
It works ok as long as I'm using KDE with everything on alsa-plugins.
But there is no access to dsp (such as wine needs)

If I try a mpg123 ..... it segfaults
here is my dmesg after running mpg123:

         Please try dxs_support=1 or dxs_support=4 option
         and report if it works on your machine.
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:00:11.5 to 64

Maybe this means, that via82xx isn't ready for 2.6?
Everything else is like described in this Howto - modules, modules.d/alsa, alsa-lib-1.0.0_rc2

I've sound onboard:
00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 50)

Maybe you typed this in by hand, or the menu config has changed from your version to my version 2.6.0-test11/test7, where both OSS API emulation and OSS Sequencer API have square bracketed selection boxes, which seems to mean that those two items are options to the modules listed above, not individual parts of the kernel which can be compiled as modules. Therefore you cant make them into modules.

Regs.
Ok this seems to have changed lately. Indeed the proper menu now reads
Code:
  <*> Advanced Linux Sound Architecture
  <*>   Sequencer support
  <*>     Sequencer dummy client
  [*]   OSS API emulation
  <*>     OSS Mixer API
  <*>     OSS PCM (digital audio) API
  [*]     OSS Sequencer API
  <*>   RTC Timer support
  [*]   Verbose printk
  [*]   Debug
  [*]     Debug memory
  [*]     Debug detection
      Generic devices  --->
      PCI devices  --->
      ALSA USB devices  --->
Thanks for the correction.

Hello,

i followed the instructions given here and the alsa guide on gentoo.org but i dont get any sound.
i have everything enabled in the kernel, emerged alsa-lib and utils, edited /etc/modules.d/alsa, and ive added alsasound to the boot runlevel. everything seems to be fine, i get no errors, aplay and xmms play something but i hear nothing :)
of course i unmuted the speaker etc.
i can post the amixer output but i havent found anything strange.
i hope someone can help,

thx in advance

Jan
