Can't Play Audio CD
« on: February 22, 2016, 07:21:20 PM »
Unable yet to play an audio CD.

In alsamixer all needed controls are up.

aplay -l
Code: [Select]

There was an example of a similar problem in a recent thread:

do you get an error message when you try to run xmms from a terminal window?

No messages whatsoever.

On reboot xmms started again then hang configuring drive on "check drive". Had to use xkill.

I have it installed as OnDemand.

xmms needs to be configured for alsa, so it's possible that loading it ondemand might cause problems if it is loaded before alsa is installed/configured.

Made a new install for version 7.0

xmms is playing audio CD nicely except there is no sound.

aplay plays as well w/o any error messages, except there is no sound.

alsamixer all controls are up, same for volume in xmms.

Now I am at a loss. ???

A couple of suggestions based on recent posts and my hardware:

* you might have to mute the headphones channel to get sound out of the speakers
* hdmi might be the default device rather than the speakers
* you might need to load the alsa-config extension before the alsa extension (this requires editing the alsa-config dep file locally)

What does "aplay -l" output?

It doesn't look like you have hdmi, so you don't have to worry about that.

As long as the "master" is un-muted by alsamixer, it looks like things should work?

Did you try modifying your alsa-config dep file locally to remove the dep on alsa? Once done, reboot then load alsa-config followed by alsa.

Did as suggested, rebooted, xmms started to play for a split second then hang. xkilled.
Rebooted and extracting extensions stopped at soundtouch. Got only into console. In mc deleted soundtouch.
Rebooted, extracting extensions stopped at sdl-sound. Can get into console. No X.
Seems I am screwed now  :'(

If I will recover I will forget about xmms and see if sound will play in firefox..

When something like this happens, it's better to boot with the boot codes "base norestore".

Deleting extensions like that will cause problems if other extensions depend on them - it would be better to remove extensions from onboot.lst.

For the few seconds xmms played did you hear any sound?

Were you using Xvesa, Xfbdev or Xorg-7.7?

I've never, ever managed to crash xmms  :P

There was a sound.

Possibly Xorg-7.7

And I saw it crash or hang now quite a few times.  ::)

How much RAM does the system have?
Run memtest86.
