I have a creative sound card (ca106 driver) detected and working. This is a 5.1 capable soundcard and i also have 5.1 speaker system. The sound card works, however, the problem is that only the front speakers are working. I have checked vlc settings, in which front speakers, centre and rear are seen as different devices.
PC seems to run fine in single channel mode but monitor reports no input in dual channel mode and memtest86+ lists from 1-3 errors per pass in single channel mode. Motherboard (Gigabyte P43T-ES3G) can't be set for the 1.65 volts required by the RAM (2x2 of OCZ3P1333LV4GK PC3 10666). The mobo voltage choices are 1.6 or 1.7 volts. I have tried both and increased the MCH voltage from 1.1 v to 1.2 v, but so far can't get it to run in dual channel mode at all and single channel mode seems to run fine but I still get errors in memtest86+. Also tried optimized Bios settings and loosened memory timings (from 7-7-7-16 to 8-8-8-27 and tRFC 60 to 70) and reset Command Rate from 0 to 2. CPU is Core 2 Quad @ 2.4 Ghz, PSU is rated at 400 watts, Video card is Gigabyte GT220.
I'm trying to crack my wep password just for kicks, but I keep running into the same error. When I try to use airplay-ng for the packet injection, it always gives me the error " wlan0 is on channel -1, but the AP uses channel 6". I've tried setting wlan0 to channel 6 manually, but that doesn't help. I spent a while searching for a solution, but it seemed like each page had a different, usually highly complex solution, that still doesn't work. I have the most recent drivers for my wireless card, and it meets all the requirements. So, is there any solution to this that will actually work?
Setting up a new Centos 5.5 server with an LSI Logic 7402XP fiber channel HBA card connected by fiber to an enclosure with 28 SATA drives.This is just a bunch of disks.I want to mount them /disk1, /disk2,disk28. No RAID or LVM. After connecting the dsisks and rebooting there are 28 new devices /dev/sdc, /dev/sdd, ...
/dev/sdad. Going to /sys/class/scsi_disk will list all of them. Pick any one and go into device and you can cat the vendor and model and state is "Running." But try parted /dev/sdc and it just quitts. fdisk and mkfs produce errors. Attepting to read or write the device directly with dd fails. The mpt fusion kernel mods are present. I'm pretty sure this hardware is on the suuported list. And I've tried swapping out the card and cables in case of bad hardware. What am I missing to be able to partition and mkfs these disks?

Thinking about building a new system, with 4GB of DDR3 RAM. I am just wondering, which would you prefer: Dual-channel DDR3 or Quad-channel DDR3? Does one have better speed performance over another? Will one way keep your system cooler?
I was hoping that upgrading to 10.04 would fix my problems with sound and HDMI but alas it doesn't. I have an HP dv7 that I wish connect via an HDMI cable to my HDTV and play things like Hulu, Boxee, etc. with the sound coming out of my home theater system. I know that the hardware is capable of doing this because I have Windows 7 installed in a dual boot and it has no problems with pumping sound down the HDMI channel.
I've upgraded to Alsa 1.0.23 freshly compiled. With 1.0.23 I see HDMI settings in Pulse Audio Volume Control. However if I start say VLC and play a video, check pavucontrol and make sure the Playback is set to the HDMI channel. I can hook up the HDMI cable and I can see the video playing - but no audio. I've been in and out of all kinds of things like alsamixer, gnome-alsamixer, sound preferences, etc. and I've toggled things on and off in an attempt to get HDMI sound working but nothing works.
In alsamixer if I hit f6 I see my 0 card as HDA Intel and my 1 card as NDA NVidia. If I select NVidia I see only S/PDIF, S/PDIF 1, S/PDIF 2, S/PDIF 3. I can only mute or unmute these. I've tried both - nothing works. Let me know what sort of output/info you need and I'll post it. Here's some info I've seen others post:
It seems that when I start up any video in VLC recently that it automatically opts for the left only audio channel. This means that I have to go into the audio options with every movie or show I watch and switch it to stereo mode. I was wondering if anyone knew a way to get VLC to automatically start up in stereo. The videos I have been watching have stereo audio so that is not the problem. I have worked though all of the advanced audio options and I haven't found a way to be able to set this up.
I have a PowerPC installation (fully patched) of Ubuntu 10, and I pulled down the MythTV suite on top (since there is no Mythbuntu/PPC that I found). I'm having an issue where after I scan for channels with my tuner using mythtv-setup, I can't set the starting channel number. Its almost as if nothing ever populates into the drop down. This seems to be specific to the combination that I have - Ubuntu 10 + PPC + Myth 0.23. If I use another x86 + Myth .21 and the same Tuner (HDHomeRun), I can set the starting channel fine. A Mac OS 10.4 + Myth .21 also allowed me to set the channel. I've rebuilt this install twice now and it won't allow me to set it. I can see the scanned data in the mythconverg database, so I know its there.
Is it possible to convert a 2.1 channel mp3 or any video file to get a respective 5.1 file permanently so I could play them on external music system which is 5.1 speaker system. Any sites where i can usually songs n video with 5.1 channel.
I have a 4.1 surround setup that the computer sees a 4 channel setup (stuff going to subwoofer is split out in hardware so all the computer sees is the front and rear l/r channels).
All well and good, but phonon isn't giving me an option to set my output to 4 channels, only stereo (which means my rear speakers are useless) or 5.1 (which makes me fear losing channels if I play anything with actual surround sound).
I'm running MythBuntu 10.04 32-bit on an ASUS DualCore Atom + NVidia ION chipset. It's taken me a while to get it all working (still not there yet on the remote!), but there are a couple of glitches with the tuner card.
10.04 appears to have the kernel modules already, so I installed the firmware following linuxtv.org instructions and got it working pretty quickly in MythTV. I've since built the latest stable kernel module and updated the firmware to v4l-saa7164-1.0.3-3.fw which appears to be the latest. Same issues in both cases anyway.
Problem 1: The picture using /dev/dvb/adapter1 breaks up / stutters like there's a poor signal, although it says 90+% and /dev/dvb/adapter0 is rock solid. When I try with mplayer it plays but gives lots of errors on the second tuner, but I guess that's not surprising. Example output:
How do i change the channel gnome-volume-control controls? I want it to control pcm but it controls master front. There used to be a setting right in the sound preferences but i think it disappeared with the 9.10 upgrade or at least i can not find it anymore. I've looked on the at gnome alsa mixer while changing the volume and master front gets controlled while pcm is always set to max. The problem with this is that master front does almost nothing to change the actual volume.
If i control pcm with the alsa mixer the volume range is fine. I've found a manual for gnome-volume-control on [URL].en and the pic there actually looks like i remember it looking. But i can not get to that screen. What i have looks completely different. Its a window with the tabs Sound Effects | Hardware | Input | Output | Applications. But there is no sight of any channel settings and the only slider there does the same as the applet one.
Or at least that's what I figured, when watching videos from ....., etc., the sound in the left channel turns into distorted high frequency noise, anyone had the same issue? Is there a fix for this? Sound in other applications works just fine.EDIT: Oh, and I'm using the proprietary flash plugin, has worked just fine on my Ubuntu Studio on the exact same computer.
openSuse v11.1linux 22.214.171.124-0.2-default x86_64realtek acl1200 codecSound for various devices is at best erratic. It is hit or miss whether sound emits at any given time.Sometimes Flash player (in Firefox) has sound, sometimes not.Sometimes mplayer has sound, sometimes not. (A workaround for mplayer is to install the ALSA dev package and rebuild mplayer. It still fails on the default channel but succeeds on ALSA.)The message in mplayer is
Code: [AO OSS] audio_setup: Can't open audio device /dev/dsp: Device or resource busy "fuser /dev/dsp" returns nothing.
I have a Creative SoundBlaster live SB0490 USB sound card. Alsamixer only shows a mic channel for this card although it has a line in. Is this because it is not supported or how it is meant to be? I have problems with no audio out on a program which directly accesses the card as hw:1 although it is actually using it and wonder if this is all related. Strangely I can play sound through the card using rythmbox.

I have installed Tvtime and XawTv applications and I am currently trying to configure both these applications to detect my tv tuner card (pixelview play tv pro with conexant cx2388 chipset). configure both video and audio with channel scan for my tv tuner card?
I'm new to this environment. I'm currently using OpenSuse 11.2 freshly installed. I'm attempting to install FCoE as a target on one box and an initiator on another. I've gone to the Open-FCoE.org site and got the tar file open-fcoe-2.6.34.tar.gz and attempted to install it, but there appear to be missing dependencies, such as libhbalinux. However, the more I seem to install, the more there are unresolved dependancies. I've followed the Open_FCoE Target and Iniator Quick Starts, but I'm running into many missing souce dependencies. What exactly I need in the way of packages, files, etc and how to install them? Is there any documentation of how to install FCoE from scratch?
Until now I have been running a single threaded cpu at single channel speed but yesterday I bought a 3.2 gig p4 for 20 bucks. It has hyperthreading and an 800 mhz fsb which supports dual channel speeds on the chipset. It hasn't arrived yet so I haven't put it in the system but what I would like to know is whether 11.4 work properly with these changes, and will it detect and implement them properly or will I need to reinstall it?
I'm running squeeze (last updated today), and everything has been working great. There is only thing that would simplify my life minutely..Anybody know how can I have the volume buttons on my laptop change the "pcm" channel volume rather than "master"? If they could control pcm, then I could adjust the volume coming out of my headphones or my computer speaker (both controlled by pcm, but not master...seems strange to me) with just one click.I tried to find this info online, but all results seem to refer to an older version. The simple "click here, set this" solution no longer is possible.
After upgrading to 11.4 I can't get my mic to work. In 11.3 it "just worked". Originally I had 2 problems - no sound in Flash videos and mic not working. After uninstalling PulseAudio, Flash is working, but still no luck with my mic. I've tried all the possible options in KMix and alsamixes and it's still like dead. The system is OpenSuse 11.4, KDE 4.6, 64 bit.
I have a new install of Karmic on my system with a flyvideo 3000 tv card installed. My problem is that it doesn't find any radio channels and the input channel is completely wrong. I don't have any sound on gnomeradio and can't find the config files to change the input channel. The only input option available to me is dig1 - can anyone point me in the right direction?
I have already read the Howto for this tv card and changed the device to radio0 in the setup. I have setup tvtime perfectly with sound channel as well as with a 5.1 surround configuration. I am missing my favourite radio channel. and I want to get rid of my windows installations once and for all! Update: I did a system update and some things have changed: the radio tower graphic on gnomeradio is now green (I assume it is getting a signal) but no sound yet.
