Default Re: no sound with latest nforce drivers (1.0-0283)

I also have an ASUS A7N8x-E Deluxe Revision 2 board and am having this EXACT same problem. The strange thing is, I have my SPIDF output hooked up to a DolbyDigital amplifier and when I use the nforce-audio module the reciever lights up in DolbyDigital mode jsut like it does in Windows, so evidently it is getting a Dolby encouded stream. I just cant get any sound no matter what I try.

One other thing I get is when I try to pipe a wav file to /dev/sound/dsp using cat, I get an error say "Illegal seek" WTF is up with that?

I too get the light illuminating on my externel dd decoder when the nvidia driver is loaded (and the alsa drivers are disabled/commented out). Of course when I load the alsa drivers and disable the nvidia drivers the light goes out as the alsa drivers are not configured to use the spdif or encode with dd. So there is something mysterious going on, something is happerning between the application trying playing an audio source and the nvidia driver.

Well, I have the driver working ok, but I don't have a DOLBY speaker system .

I am using Mandrake Lunx 10.0 community, and the driver has some procompiled modules for some kernels.

The first thing I did was to install the driver in a custom kernel i compiled before, but it didn't work, so then I downloaded one of the kernels that had precompiled module (I uncomppressed the driver and checked the existent modules, now I have 2.6.3-7mdk), installed the driver and now it works OK.

The question is why it didn't work with my 2 customs kernels, when the only thing I did wan change the Proccesor option from 686 to athlon/duron/k7 and recompile it.

Do you have an ASUS A7V8NX motherboard?

I've emailed nvidia with a link to this thread mentioning that there may well be a problem with the ASUS A7V8N-X motherboards and the NFORCE audio drivers in Linux at least, wouldn't be the first time ASUS motherboards have had problems IIRC. Hopefully this is something which can be fixed in the next release, although I wouldn't have a clue as to why it's happening.

Hmm,

while I read along the thread, it looks to me like the driver is only working with the precompiled kernel modules. Not with the self-made ones.

Think we have to wait for the next release.

ToNvidia: Thanks for making a driver for another OS than Windows, but next time please make it run...

Got headaches from trying to get this thing work.

regards p

I doubt the fact that they're precompiled kernels have anything to do with it :erm:

I just gave it another try, this time with the kernelparamaters "noapic nolapic" and with APIC disabled in my BIOS. Still no sound, but when I look at dmesg I see :

The module loads fine though. No sound, needless to say.

XMMS just skips from song to song searching in vain for something to pipe the music to.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is maybe related to udev. Is anyone else here using udev and getting no sound?

I'm going to disable udev and see if it helps.

Valheru, you may be right, but thats the only conclusion i have for this problem.

Is there anybody out there who has running a self-compiled kernel with nvsound???
Probably not on an A7N8X-Deluxe.

I have an Asus A7N8X-Deluxe MB and, as I said before, Mandrake 10.0.

The driver didn't work with my compiled kernel, so I downloaded a kernel with precompiled module in the driver. It worked GOOD, incredybly sound, so I said "It shoul work if I recompile the same kernel and just change the proccessor type to an Athlon", I did it using the config file from the previous kernel, installed it and installed the driver but it didn't work.

So folks, you are right, it seems to work perfectly with precompiled modules.
