Thread: Weird Sound Problem

  1. #1

    Default Weird Sound Problem

    I had no sound, then went through the sound troubleshooting guide and (mostly) fixed it. However, after booting there is no sound, which is fixed by a simple 'sudo /etc/init.d/alsasound restart'. Any ideas on how to fix this?

    As an interim, you try putting "rsalsasound restart" in your /etc/init.d/boot.local.

    But it may be worthwhile to take a look at your dmesg, to see if you see any useful information there. ... ie type "dmesg > dmesg.txt" and open "dmesg.txt" with your favourite editor.

    Restarting ALSA in boot.local fixed the problem. There weren't any errors in dmesg.

    That should have read "rcalsasound restart". Typo on my part.
