Thumbs down nvsound produces no sound...

Hi,

I installed both nvnet and nvsound on a kernel 2.6.8.1 and both installed flawlessly. nvnet works flawlessly as well, but nvsound does not want to play any files! i don't get any problems in loading the module (even though I have apic and acpi on) but the playback doesn't work. here's the output from dmesg:

Run the sound card detection program (if your version of linux supports it). The nVidia version of it should come up. Review any errors it produces closely.

Basically it would be a good idea to just wait for the next release. This driver I feel is a test run because it is not working for alot of people. I would go back to ALSA and wait til they provide the proper support.

What is exactly the problem you have?, How do you know it does not play sounds?.

Try to congifure your applications to use OSS sound instead of ALSA (in xmms select the oss output plugin). Also, check if your kernel has support for OSS sound.

Hi,

the problem is that OSS won't work. If you want to play something through /dev/dsp it comes to the described dmesg output.

Do you have sound working using nvsound an oss under 2.6.x?

Hi, I have the 2.6.3-7mdk kernel and nvsound works, but I had to do some things.

I have not /dev/dsp, instead I have /dev/sound/dsp, so I made a link to have both.

You have to remove the alsa drivers in /etc/modprobe.conf as the documentation says. Reboot your computer to load the sound module from the start and avoid some problems that arise when you just use "modprobe nvsound".

With all this steps I have nvsound working well, but it still has some problems with arts and mplayer. For this last one I use "mplayer -channels 6" as seen on other post.

If you still have problems, try running applications in a shell or console so you can see the error messages and post them.

Bye!!

Hi,

I have a fresh Debian 3.0/unstable installation. Running Kernel 2.6.8.1

The Kernel OSS modules for nvidia and the Alsa-Module work! But I need the features of the nvsound driver. (Digital Output, Speake configuration, etc.)

Where do u get the /dev/sound/dsp Device from?

No Alsa drivers are loaded on my system.

Heres the lsmod output. (Nothing about sound compiled into kernel):
------cut
trinity:~# lsmod
Module Size Used by
nvidia 4818996 12
smbfs 61368 4
nvsound 1537096 1
soundcore 6880 2 nvsound
-----cut

any ideas?

I have had this problem:

icamargo@kirara:~$ esd
unsupported playback rate: 44100
Audio device open for 44.1Khz, stereo, 16bit failed
Trying 44.1Khz, 8bit stereo.
unsupported playback rate: 44100
Audio device open for 44.1Khz, stereo, 8bit failed
Trying 48Khz, 16bit stereo.

and there is no way in wich I can make it work for any other rate than 48000. I tried with the i810_audio driver too, and it didn't worked. And I hasn't been able to make it work with 5.1 sound.

Right now I'm using the nvsound driver because it is the last one I installed, and due that it works just the same, I left it there.

Off course, I get a similar problem with doom 3 (wich, either, I have no sound, or I have to use esd and esddsp in order to resample the sound).

I have a Athlon 64 3000+ with a Chaintech NF250 mother board.

This is my lspci output:

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help,

Sincerelly,
