Slackware :: Slackware 13.1 VIA VT1708S Audio Driver - Get Working Without Rebuilding The Kernel?

Jun 23, 2011

I'm trying to bring my Slackware system back to life as my XP HDD is dying... I've got everything working except for my audio. I got a new motherboard (ASRock P43DE3) and it has a VIA VT1708S as the onboard audio. Is there any way I can get this working without rebuilding the kernel?

Slackware :: Boot Process Hangs At Audio Driver - No Sound / Get It?

Jul 13, 2010

When my system boots it hangs at


and hangs for another 120 seconds. In X11 I have no sound at all even after running alsaconf with no errors. My sound works perfectly in Ubuntu, so it's not a hardware problem. Are the two problems related or are they two separate things? Any help here would be hot.

Slackware :: Wicd In Current Won't Connect To Wireless Network - Fixed It With Rebuilding?

Mar 5, 2010

After I upgraded to current(Tue Mar 2 19:07:31 UTC 2010), I could not connect to any wireless network. It will always failed in obtaining IP address. When I rebuild the package and upgrade with the new one, the problem gone. Also I notice that the package I rebuild is different with the one on the stock tree:

Slackware :: BigDesktop ATI AGP WITHOUT Driver (just Kernel Mod Built In)

Jan 23, 2010

I read over the X11 acceleration in this forum but I'm not having issues with acceleration - running slackware 13 with built in ATI AGP stuff in kernel. Glxgears is putting out what I would expect for a 9600 pro (2500 FPS in the little window). I haven't needed you guys for a very long time but I just formatted Ubuntu (was getting on my nerves) and installed slack 12 on my hp netbook and 13 on my old desktop without a hitch - except this

I NEED BIG DESKTOP! I've searched, I've read, I've wondered! What's the normal setup in xorg.conf for bigdesktop WITHOUT the ATI driver (I ran the driver after building a custom kernel and the installer crashed with "Error: ./ does not support version" - I think I should of renamed my kernel path and setup differently or something)? Is BigDesktop ONLY supported with the driver? I know now that the driver wont work for my system - How do I enable bigdesktop with the open source driver I built in?

make menguconfig and load config
the make all
make modules install
i have also tried make install as well
then i mopy the kernel file and config file into /boot directory
edit lilo
reboot ... everything works fine acpi works properly like before.. now the problem comes.. I try to install the fglrx drivers and i get the error message
kernel includes at /lib/modules/ do not match current kernel.
they are versioned as ""
instead of "".
you might need to adjust your symlinks:

- /usr/src/linux
ERROR: I don't have make module
Am I doing something wrong setting up my kernel. Issue on my gentoo box I have.

Slackware :: Catalyst 9.11 And 9.12 Driver - Buildpkg Fails On New Kernel

Jan 12, 2010

I have Slackware 13.0 installed with the newest stable kernel ( on an hp notebook with ati hd3200 igp. What happens is that when I try to buildpkg the catalyst drivers, it fails on the new kernel but not on the original one. I've been searching for a solution for a few days now. found a few that involved patching some files, but none seem to work or I can't make them work. I could probably use the binary installer but I would prefer not to.

Here's the output:

I have made a full install of Slack 13.37.0. When I try to run the installer of the NVIDIA GF 8400GS card ( downloaded from [URL], I receive an error message. It says that the kernel source cannot be indetified/found. /lib/modules/ and .../build links to /usr/src/linux-, which contains the full kernel source (can be compiled), including the header .h files in include/linux.

Slackware :: Nvidia Driver Package Refuse To Cooperate With Kernel Sources?

Aug 3, 2010

I'm using Slackware 13.0 on rather old PC with old Riva TNT2 video card. Default driver is "nv". Everything work fine, but without hardware 2D acceleration under X.

After studying various manuals I
1. downloaded Nvidia binary package suitable for my video card.
2. Recompile kernel without Riva framebuffer support.
3. Start Nvidia script.

Script said: "Error: unable to find the kernel source tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured...""

Kernel sources are in /usr/src/linux- I have all kernel packages installed. I was trying various switches for script in order to show the right path - nothing! 8 Some people say that Nvidia script don't like 4th digit in a kernel's name and get it from "uname -r" output. Can I change it somehow?

Slackware :: Kernel Not Working On Laptop

May 31, 2010

The kernel (using huge-smp) does not work for my laptop. It tries to boot, but after the line (Freeing init...) the screen goes blank. No logs since the filesystem is not yet mounted (I think). I've blogged about it already (posted it here, investigated myself, etc) for the previous versions of the kernel. I've been following every updates on -current and most of the thing works well except for the kernel. The kernel that works out of the box for my machine was 2.6.33. Previous kernel that works was Then it went, however, I need to compile using the config of 2.6.33 to make it work on .1 and .2. Now, I tried the same thing on but some cryptic error occurred while loading the kernel.

That all were using huge-smp kernel. Now I tried to compile a generic-smp kernel (of course with initrd). (I did not install kernel modules yet). It works and it boots. However, since there are no kernel modules, it freezes after starting xfce at runlevel 3. So my guess is that somehow, my previous problems were either config related or module related. I though that if I will as well compile the kernel module, it may work, but as I look at source/k it seems that the source for kernel modules are coming the install package from slackware/a packages. Sorry, just a newbie.

Slackware :: Generic Kernel And Initrd Not Working

I've changed for huge kernel to a generic+initrd setup per the instructions in the README.initrd file however my machine fails to boot using that method. I get the following errors:

Slackware :: Compile 2.6.37 Kernel Patched With The Autogroup Patch On A Slackware 13.1 System?

Jan 13, 2011

it's possible to compile the 2.6.37 kernel patched with the autogroup patch on a Slackware 13.1 system running with headers? I just compiled and installed the 2.6.37-autogroup kernel from AUR on my ARCH setup and I like it especially when using firefox with lots of tabs open and other background apps also running. I did notice a speed and smothness difference in my ARCH testing setup with this kernel patch and I can get same results in 13.1??

Slackware :: How Should Proprietary ATI Driver Be Installed On Slackware Current 64-bit?

May 15, 2010

I've tried a few different ways to install the ATI graphics driver "fglrx" to get 3D acceleration.If I try to install using the standard file "" from the ATI web site it appears to work but then I discover it actually got an error.I saw a reference to ATI requiring 32-bit libraries to install their 64-bit driver. Is there a link or post that explains how to add the 32-bit libraries. Will that solve the problem, or will I just waste more time trying that?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Get HD Audio With VIA VT1705 / VT1708s

Apr 25, 2010

However, even after much trying I couldn't get my motherboard's onboard audio to output in 5.1 surround like my Windows 7 OS can. Ubuntu simply claims my card is Stereo Duplex.I tried using these drivers that I found online. The instructions didn't work one hundred percent, but after I somehow got through all the errors and compiled my new kernel I faced a command prompt interface (no graphics of any sort). I deleted my Linux partition, and installed Ubuntu 9.10 Desktop Edition 64-bit fresh.After that, I remember seeing somewhere that I should install the package "linux-backports-modules-alsa-generic meta-package" to enable 5.1 audio on my card. After installing it, the ALSA mixer had a new option at the bottom left:URL...

I checked the VIA website, and they say Smart 5.1 is a way to use the Line-out, Line-in, and Microphone ports as your three 3.5 mm outputs. This is what Windows 7 does for my surround system, and it works.Of course, I enable it and turn everything on. I try a sound test (something in the terminal, I can't remember what) and it claims it's playing noise on all my outputs one at a time. I still only hear noise on front left and front right.I try rebooting, making sure Smart 5.1 is enabled, and testing again but to no luck. I can't hear any surround sound.

Slackware :: Ati Driver 32-bit Compatibility For Slackware 64-bit Multilib?

Sep 6, 2009

Does anyone know if I need to build the proprietary ATI drivers specifically for 32-bit, or do the 64-bit packages take care of 32-bit compatibility? If so, how would I do that?

I tried:


But the package has the same files as its 64-bit counterpart. The reason I'm asking is I'm trying to get Neverwinter Nights working and a post I found mentioned this problem.

I get a single line error: "Failed to initialize graphics."

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Audio Using VT1708s Chipset?

Jul 5, 2010

Ok, so let me first start off by saying I'm a linux noob. I feel no shame. I've been working on trying to solve my issue for a few days now and after much research I am still no better off. But I am able to at least narrow down my problem. The long and short of it is that my HDMI audio device is not showing up in Ubuntu 10.4 x64 edition. Let me give a few specs.

Motherboard: ASROCK 785GMH/128
Onboard video: ATI Radeon HD 4200
Onboard audio: VIA VT1708S
OS: Ubuntu 10.4 x64
Alsa drivers: alsa-driver-1.0.23
ATI Drivers: ATI Catalyst 10.6

Running the latest version of ALSA and ATI's proprietary linux drivers. I can see all outputs (including the s/pdif) except the HDMI. From my reading there should be a device listed on a 2nd card called ATI HDA HDMI aplay -l returns the following result:

Hardware :: Software Mixing - Audio Chip VT1708S

Oct 19, 2010

Starting over, based on this thread: [URL] And my problem which is the same! I have the same audio chipset and experienced the same issues. I hope there is nothing about that chip. I tried with XFCE4 on Slackware 13.1 and now KDE4 on Debian, I found a workaround on XFCE by installing gstreamer and using it instead of xine as the phonon backend. That workaround apparently doesn't work on KDE.

Something interesting (also in the original thread): Software mixing through alsa DOES work since I can play several files in aplay (command line) or xine (gui standalone) simultaneously. I don't have another soundcard. Should I install pulseaudio anyway? Switching to OSS ?
