No audio : did I miss something basic ?

Jean-Francois Simon
Hi,

I am runing VLC under fvwm but could not have any sound.

Are things working by default or there might be something to tune in
general, or in my case ?

Thanks for help.

What are you trying to get sound from?
Try turning off the mutes that are on.

mixerctl inputs.cd.mute=off   for example.

also, try   cdio cdplay    , with a music cd (This is pure digital and
gives better quality than cdio play)

also, add to .profile:
pgrep -x aucat || aucat -l      (someone please correct this for me if
it has changed more recently)
 
If this isn't enough, please post a full dmesg, if you have another
sound system that is integrated into motherboard, you can also have problems

Yes I have a sound card on the MB but seems not to be discovered.
Sound out from VLC and mplayer, which do not show any error about sound,
however I tried any jack of the MB and Sound Blaster card but no sound at
all ?

Full dmesg :

in most cases, yes. But on certain devices, you may have to
start aucat(1) in server mode, if the application you uses
requires sample formats not supported by the device. AFAIK
it's not your case.

does the following produce sound?

        cat /bsd >/dev/audio

if not, try setting all ``mute'' knobs to ``off'' (eg.
``mixerctl outputs.headphones.mute=off''), tweak the mixer
until you get sound with the above command.

once sound works, if vlc still doesn't work, try:

        $ SIO_DEBUG=1 vlc

and see if there are sound related error messages.

for the onboard audio, check BIOS settings and/or remove the SB card.
the onboard device is more likely to be better supported then the SB
card anyway.

Re: No audio : did I miss something basic ?

In reply to this post by Alexandre Ratchov-2
I still could'nt ear anything, I don't understand what wrong I am doing.
The integrated MB card is not detected at all thought I could look after
the bios settings, however not necessary and I prefer to use the SB Live
if this is something possible.

very strange, the device is opened but it's stopped, and
cat(1) cant do that.

can you confirm that the ``cat /dev/arandom >/dev/audio''
command was still running during the whole operation. Are
you sure it didn't terminate with a error?

play.active=0 indicates that the device is stopped and play.samples=0 means it
has played 0 samples, so it's normal you dont hear anything so far.

during the ``cat /dev/arandom >/dev/audio'' command the
play.active should be 1, and play.sample should be
increasing.

fwiw, if the ``cat /dev/arandom >/dev/audio'' terminates
with ``Device busy'', you can use fstat(1) to see which
programm is using it, (and kill it), example:

$ fstat /dev/audio                                                          
USER     CMD          PID   FD MOUNT        INUM MODE       R/W    SZ|DV NAME
aucat    aucat      31279    3 /            1709 crw-rw-rw-  rw   audio0 /dev/audio
$ sudo kill 31279

I carefully looked the output of your audictl. This is mine for fully
working Sound Blaster Live Audio Card (including full duplex). Is that
what you have?

$ audioctl
name=SB Live!
version=0x07
config=emuxki
encodings=ulinear:8,mulaw:8*,alaw:8*,slinear:8*,slinear_le:16,\
ulinear_le:16*,slinear_be:16*,ulinear_be:16*
properties=full_duplex,mmap,independent
full_duplex=0
fullduplex=0
blocksize=8192
hiwat=8
lowat=6
output_muted=0
monitor_gain=0
mode=
play.rate=48000
play.channels=2
play.precision=16
play.encoding=slinear_le
play.gain=255
play.balance=32
play.port=0x0
play.avail_ports=0x0
play.seek=0
record.samples=0
record.eof=0
record.pause=0
record.error=0
record.waiting=0
record.open=0
record.active=0
record.buffer_size=65536
record.block_size=8192
record.errors=0

I am running 4.5/i386 stable with bsd.mp kernel. The only thing
I personally could notice is that your version is 0x00 and mine is
0x07. When did you purchase your Audio Card? I think that they are
monkeying with the chip-sets in the new cards and the driver might have
a problem.

Cheers,
Predrag

It was running and did'nt end with an error. I also check other output
on the cards, the cable and the speakers.

It's rather an old card. lowlat is also different (6 in yr case 1 in
mine).

For the momdne I run OpenBSD 4.4

well, you have an Audigy2 card.  the first generation SB Live! cards
mostly work well.  I've tried a few different board models.  Audigy
cards have a known problem with volume control.  I have never
personally tried any type of Audigy2 card.  apparently the Audigy2

I think if you upgrade to 4.5 and get the onboard device detected
you will be happier

note that the emu(4) driver doesn't really take advantage of the special
features (filters and such) of the emu chips.  nor does emu(4) support
multichannel, "pure digital" (s/pdif output), or high resolution (> 16
bits) modes.

Is there any card/driver combination that does support higher resolutions?
The azalia manpage (I have a Intel 82801GB HD Audio actually) says in BUGS:

        There is no way to use 20-bit or 24-bit precision
        because of a limitation of the MI audio framework.

Is "the MI audio framework" the same thing that's described in audio(4)?

        Thanks

yeah, that statement is outdated.  imo, kinda dumb it was there in the
first place.  if a feature is not supported due to a limitation of an
upper layer, is it really a bug of the lower layer?
