Nforce sounds like chipmunks? (Fixed) Now new problem.. :(
Well. I just spent the past 3 days getting my Adaptec 1210SA properly configured under RH8. No support for RH9 yet :mad:
Well, everything is done and I decided to load up some of my games to test out my new configuration. Here is where the problem starts, Majesty and a few other games have sound wich sounds like they are talking very fast, kinda like a chipmunk.

I have the 4363 vid drivers, and the 0261 nforce drivers. I used the .tar.gz of the drivers to install them.
I have had problems running the make, make install command with the full .tar file. So when I extract it I will go into each individual folder instead and do a make, make install, for each component on it's own, i.e. nvnet, nvagp (wich I know I don't have to do), and nvaudio.

Like I said the sound works but it sounds really fast like a chipmunk. Is there any way to fix this?

Well, let me add to this mess I have. I have found I have no audio with my Nforce2 board (NF7-S) at all unless I start Maelstrom wich came with my distribution (RH8).
After I start this game and exit I then get sound from all my other games but it is the chipmunk sound I descibed before.

Also, where can I get OSS or Also drivers from so I can try those. I am kinda new to linux yet and don't know where all of the resources are yet.

Well, another update........
I have gotten it so that I aways have sound in all my games but the same base problem still applies.

CHIPMUNKS driving me mad..........................

Do you use the SPDIF?

If not you can try disabling the SPDIF out thus reducing the sample rate from 48000 to 44000....

It is done with a module parameter when you load the module...

I don't remind the command or the module parameter but I read it somewhere in the README

Thanks, hachre, I finally got rid of that annoying sound coming from my speakers. The sound does seem to be alot better.

I do have a new problem with the sound though. Everytime I load up and enter RH8 I need to goto the terminal and "modprobe nvaudio" to bring it up so it works.

Is there a way to make nvaudio module load with RH8?

I almost think at this point my sound config is fubared but I want to know if this is possible to fix before I do a fresh install and start from scratch again. It would just be so nice for the sound to load normal now. :) :(

I get this error when I use gnome-volume-control.

I was not able to open your audio device.
Please check that you have permission to open /dev/mixer and make sure you have sound support compiled into your kernel.

Yes, you have to load nvaudio manually.

Every distribution offers a way to load modules automatically... You have to find out how Red Hat is doing this...

/etc/rc.local or something like this could be the right file to enter the command...

Don't really know... In Gentoo you have to enter "nvaudio" in /etc/modules.autoload but I don't think RH is doing it the same way..

in rh u just need to modify ur /etc/modules.conf

AnvilDemon 07-27-03 05:57 AM

This is what my /etc/modules.conf has in it right now.
It looks like it already has the "nvaudio" in it.

alias parport_lowlevel parport_pc
alias usb-controller usb-ohci
alias usb-controller1 ehci-hcd
alias char-major-195 nvidia
alias scsi_hostadapter1 aar1210
alias eth0 nvnet
alias sound-slot-1 nvaudio
post-install sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -L >/dev/null 2>&1 || :
pre-remove sound-slot-1 /bin/aumix-minimal -f /etc/.aumixrc -S >/dev/null 2>&1 || :

I still need to modprobe for it though. Is there anything I need to change in it or is it setup correctly?

I really appreciate the help, thanks.
