TinyCorePure64 15.0 alsa error
« on: February 27, 2024, 11:30:56 AM »
After installing alsa.tcz in TinyCorePure64 15.0, I get this error when I try alsamixer from the terminal:

alsamixer: symbol lookup error: alsamixer: undefined symbol: acs_map

I tried this on a couple of different boxes, booting from DVD and USB stick. The installation itself seems to be OK, no md5 errors or missing deps.

Hope I'm not overlooking something obvious!

I think it’s due to ncursesw being updated, I’ll have a look tomorrow.

I'm testing the updates on my boxes.

alsamixer and speaker-test appear to work ok.

I'm not able to save the alsamixer settings between boots but that's probably a separate issue.

Thanks for your help!

thane

I tried to test pulseaudio and alsa in TC15_32 and TC15_64 and both won't work.
I tested alsamixer in TC14_32 and it works ok.

In TC15_32 I get:
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~ alsamixer

Hi neonix
I tried to test pulseaudio and alsa in TC15_32 and TC15_64 and both won't work. ...

From the  pulseaudio.tcz.info  file:

                alsa needs to be working for whatever sound device you have.
 ----- Snip -----
Did you make sure ALSA worked before installing pulse audio?

I just tested alsa and pulseaudio in tc-15.x x86:
Code: [Select]
tce-load -i xf86-video-intel alsa-config alsa
alsamixer [un-mute sound device 1]
speaker-test -Ddefault:1 -c2 -t wav -l1 [alsa works]
Note that hdmi comes up as sound device 0 on my laptop so I have to load graphics-KERNEL before alsa. In x86, but not x86_64, I have to load xf86-video-intel, which loads graphics-KERNEL, because the modesetting driver does not work.

Next:
Code: [Select]
startx
tce-load -i pavucontrol xmms-pulse
After starting pavucontrol, which starts the dbus daemon and pulseaudio automatically, I can play music with xmms via the pulseaudio output plugin.

If I load alsa-config and alsa, but not graphics-KERNEL, I get an error "HD-audio HDMI/DP requires binding with gfx driver".

If I try alsamixer, I get an error "cannot find card 0", but if I try alsamixer -Ddefault:1, I can un-mute device 1 and speaker-test works - pulseaudio also works.

If I load only alsa (this used to work in prior versions of tinycore) then I cannot get alsamixer/speaker-test to work - pavucontrol acts like sound is working (the blue volume line fluctuates with playback), but no sound comes out.
