How does one get sound working under a fresh Debian 3.0 install?
 
Hi Guys,

I've recently constructed a PVR/HTPC and I'm trying to get myth on there.

Unfortunatley I cannot use KnoppMyth so I'm looking at using plain debian 3.0 with a 2.6 Kernel. (Support for my DVB-t Capture Card).

How the hell do you get sound installed and working on a vanilla net-inst install of debian with a nforce2?

I've downloaded the drivers from http://www.nvidia.com/linux and installed them.

I've tried MPG123 but it produces no audio, where to from here?

Do I need alsa or anything else installed?

Where have I gone wrong, what have I forgotton?

Remember I'm using a stock 3.0 install with a 2.6 kernel, nothing more and nothing less installed.

Hi,

i got the same problem.

I've also tried to build OSS-Support in Kernel as module. Read here something about to activate OSS but not to build a driver-module. At the moment nvsound uses soundcore module, as lsmod said.

I'm using a ASUS A7N8X-Deluxe. I had to upgrade the BIOS so that I don't run into the APIC Bug. I have ACPI and APIC support on.
I turned off the "enable apic"-option in bios. I got the same results.

At the moment I'm at the same point as you.
When I try to play something systemlog says: (mp123, xmms)

Aug 24 22:43:52 trinity kernel: Nvsound: Set format as 10
Aug 24 22:43:52 trinity kernel: Nvsound: Value 7fff000d
Aug 24 22:43:52 trinity kernel: Nvsound: fragment size 7fff fragnum d
Aug 24 22:43:52 trinity kernel: Nvsound: Nvaudio_release

The nxmixer App runs nice, only some faults when activating Digital output.
Beside that my digital amplifier tells me it has signal on digital input. When I remove nvsound the signal is gone.

Hope somebody could help on this problem. Running in circles at the moment

thnx prego

somewhat similiar problems as you guys; set up debian last night and installed a new kernel with nvsound and nvnet. except i started a new thread before i saw this :[ (nvsound produces no sound...)
