Full Version: Much Sound Trouble
Linuxhelp > Support > Technical Support
Mandrake 9.2. I had a soundblaster live board installed and removed 3 days ago and my sound on Mandrake has been bad since then. OS XP-MDK 9.2 dual boot. Windows sound is fine. The "system sound" in MDK 9.2 seems stuck, like a drum over and over. RealPlayer crashes and it's audio is like a broken record. I been fighting this for days and can't seem to gain on it. I've reinstalled several times with no change. What am I missing?

what kind of sound card do you have now?

It's really baffling. I got the system sound stopped but every other problem eludes me. Kaffeine crashes, real player files skip, xine works on pls and wax but not asf, win32 is installed. I can't understand what sent linux to hell by the installation and removal of a soundblaster card.
I get this when I run "alsaconf"
device_mode int, description "Device file permission mask for devfs."
which: no dialog in (/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin)
which: no whiptail in (/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin)
Error, dialog or whiptail not found.

I have no idea what that means.
