no sound in kde
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:41:44 EDT
I have no sound in kde.
Sound works on the console.
I can play audio cds with kscd.
I don't get any sound from noatun. If click on the play button
just nothing happens. Similar results if I try to play the
sartup wav file from kontrolcenter.
This is an opl3sax based sound card from yamaha.
Is artsd running?
Does play /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav (while in KDE) work?
Does artsplay /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav (while in KDE) work?
Are you trying to run artsd and esd simultaneously?
Yes, artsd is running.
No, play does not work:
[gerald@soliton bin]$ play /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav
sox: Can't open output file '/dev/dsp': Device or resource busy
No, artsplay does not work either:
[gerald@soliton bin]$ artsplay /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav
[gerald@soliton bin]$ echo $?
No, I am not running esd
Do sounds work at all outside of KDE (i.e., does this appear to be a driver issue?)
There are some problems with the sound card (I have to set it up manually,
see #60951) but
works right after setting up the card. However, once artsd has been started,
the sound card does no longer work (even if I stop arts) and I have to reboot
(if I unload the module and then try to reload it I get "No such device" from
I also tried the old kernel from 7.2 (sound works fine under 7.2) but with
the same result.
PS: Is it intentional that I cannot see #61901?
Same versioning, through up2date. I am gerring this error as well. I can start
and play both in console mode, and X in a console winodw using:
mpg123 Alison\ Krauss\ and\ Dolly\ Parton\ -\ Just\ When\ I\ Needed\ You\
I can also manually play play /usr/share/sounds/KDE_Startup.wav
but neither artsd nor esd are running.
bash-2.05a$ rpm -q arts
bash-2.05a$ rpm -q esd
package esd is not installed
The question about how to manually start the artsd was not answered, and I would
be interested in solving this on my host "couch"
... For what it is worth, in an attempt to resolve this, I did:
chmod 666 /etc/dsp*
to get rid on one error which I was getting. This set of files do not seem to
be under permissions control of the console permissions managementsystem, in
that the ownership is not being shifted, as I log in and out under various
userid's to test this.
It now works in 7.3. But the sound card is dead after a resume from sleep.
The remaining problem is not kde related. Closing bug.
