i have just installed mandriva 2010 on a laptop hp dv61103ee. i got this one problem there is no sound
i already disable pulse audio,
what shall i do to solve this?
Due to past misconnunications I have to ask, is there no sound coming from any app in the Operating System or is only a single application effected?
Also what make/model of a sound card are you using on your system?
the intel sound type is the default value for realtek onboard audio. It sounds like your system may not know what sound card to use. Since you have disabled pulse, then I beleive it should default back to using alsa, you can configure the audio card for also by running "sudo alsaconf" in the terminal, and you can midify and check the mixer settings by running "alsamixer".
I am a Slackware user and these are the controlling commands for alsa based off of the orignal application and in slackware, hopefully mandriva didn't remove those apps from their distribution. Please let me know if these commands are not present, if they are not then I will install mandriva to test it on my system.
What model laptop are you using? I can't find it.
If your drivers aren't working, open the Terminal an type
and paste it. This command is very useful as it gives an output for all devices in the system. It will give us a good idea what to install for which device.
