Have you got the sound levels up?
type
Code:
alsamixer
and turn up all the levels.
If this is ok then open up your case and make sure your "analog sound cable is correctly connected from your cd to your soundcard/mainboard.

Default maybe this

If your cd cable is plugged in and sound level not muted, can't hear that way, but you can hear when ripping, I guess grip isn't playing direct from cd but rather as it reads.

grip has a mode to play direct, though. Click on all those option buttons til you see play button and volume and then play a track that way, not ripping. If that does not work...my theory works.

Default and

What I mean is maybe playing from /dev/cdrom through the cd cable is not working but playing after reading from pci bus ide-scsi /dev/scsi/host0/bus0/target0/lun0/generic is working.

Default and as for myself

I see the time running when playing through grip but I don't hear anything.

Realplayer shows vid, no sound.

CD cable connected, grip has volume up full.

kernel-2.6.0-test6 finds the nforce2 i8x0 audio, lspci has the asound info, esd loads because since I put the oss emulation in kernel alsa opts there is now a /dev/snd/pcmD0D0p for playback.

No sound.

I set /tmp/.esd ownership so the user myself can read and write.

Something says it can't find host unix sometimes, which would be /tmp/.esd/socket

Default no audio

I'm going to move the cd cable from the nforce2 audio to a creative emu10k1 chip card this afternoon. I've had that work in linux for years.

If that works then I'm definitely messed up on the nforce2 driver in kernel-source-2.6.0-test6 but I could try test7 tonight. Things are changing so
fast.

I've been ripping and burning through ide-scsi and scsi generic with atapi cd drives. I can't hear anything though.

esd loads ok, grip plays with the time running as if a cd is playing. Realplayer is the app that says it can't find host unix. For that problem I think I need to use" esddsp".

Default nv audio working in kernel-2.6-test6

Choose kernel source config options for alsa and alsa to "emulate oss" and then the nforce item.

I installed debian packages for libesd-alsa0 and gnome-alsamixer.

esd &

gnome-alsamixer &

As usual everything is muted by default. Use a commandline mixer in a startup script where esd is loaded to set default volume up.

cd plays ok in gnome-alsamixer

realplayer says it can't find host unix and it says maybe another app is using the audio device

Default realplayer and esd

I run esd with '-terminate -as 2' so it allows other processes to use
the sound. The upshot is that if realplayer is running, then gnome
sounds simply don't happen. Kind of a half-way solution. I should
mention that I'm using Icewm-gnome, not Enlightenment.
