    Default Sound card Driver

    Hi

    I have an emachine e510 and the sound is not working very well?

    Can anyone direct me to a driver etc that I need.

    1: udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_8086_284b_sound_card_0_oss_pcm_0_0'
    info.subsystem = 'sound'
    info.product = 'ALC268 Analog OSS PCM Device'
    oss.device_file = '/dev/audio'
    info.udi = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_8086_284b_sound_card_0_oss_pcm_0_0'
    oss.originating_device = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_8086_284b_sound_card_0'
    linux.sysfs_path = '/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1b.0/sound/card0/audio'
    info.category = 'oss'
    oss.card = 0 (0x0)
    info.capabilities = { 'oss', 'access_control' }
    info.parent = '/org/freedesktop/Hal/devices/pci_8086_284b_sound_card_0'
    oss.card_id = 'HDA Intel'
    oss.device_id = 'ALC268 Analog'
    oss.type = 'pcm'
    access_control.file = '/dev/audio'
    oss.device = 0 (0x0)
    linux.hotplug_type = 2 (0x2)
    access_control.type = 'sound'
    linux.subsystem = 'sound'
    linux.device_file = '/dev/audio'
    info.callouts.add = { 'hal-acl-tool --add-device' }
    info.callouts.remove = { 'hal-acl-tool --remove-device' }

    Thanks

    The driver that you need is likely the alsa driver and it is probably installed already.

    Please explain what "the sound is not working very well" means?

    Hi

    Thanks for the reply.

    The lap top is dual booted with Windows and when in windows the sound is a good level and clear. In Linux the sound is very low level and distorted, so much so that the startup jingle is broken up. Yet in Amarok the sound is fine. I have used the control panel and the settings in Kmix which are set to almost max.

    Thanks

    Please follow step-7 in this guide:
    SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE
    ... lets see if that helps, before we try anything else.

    Open a terminal as a REGULAR USER. Then
    • if using gnome type: gnomesu gedit /etc/pulse/default.pa #and enter root password when prompted, and edit the file
    • if using KDE type: kdesu 'kwrite /etc/pulse/default.pa' #and enter root password when prompted, and edit the file

    I use KDE and have backed up the file and done the amendment.

    Yes it works. The sound is much, much better no distortion, seems to be ok in bbc iplayer and Amarok and system sounds.

    Thanks for your help.

    Glad to read that works.

    I note a number of fedora Linux users also have to apply the same fix.

    Hi

    I was checking out various applications and the sound and a note came up. CPU overload, sound system closing down.

    I will try and get the exact syntax again?

    Any ideas?

    Thanks
