I'm using linux for the first time. I installed alsa 1.0.24 in my system running Ubuntu 12.04. After installing, I tried to play some files using command
aplay -vv abc.wav, it started playing but I can't hear the sound.
$ cat /proc/asound/oss/ sndstat1 Sound Driver:3.8.1a-980706 (ALSA v1.0.24 emulation code) Kernel: Linux developer-OptiPlex-170L 3.2.0-23-generic #36-Ubuntu SMP Tue Apr 10 20:41:14 UTC 2012 i686 Config options: 0 Installed drivers: Type 10: ALSA emulation Card config: Intel ICH5 with AD1980 at irq 17 Audio devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG Synth devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG Midi devices: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG Timers: 31: system timer Mixers: NOT ENABLED IN CONFIG
If i use the command
aplay -l it shows the error as
no soundcards found.... But actually sound card is there. If I run
cat /proc/asound/cards, it shows the sound card name as:
0 [ICH5 ]: ICH4 - Intel ICH5 Intel ICH5 with AD1980 at irq 17
And even after installing
alsamixergui, and if I run
alsamixer', it showscannot open mixer: no such device`.
Whether it's the problem with alsa or soundcard?
