I am all out of ideas.
I have a Toshiba Tecra 8100. The sound has stopped working. Specifically I would like to be able to watch DVDs on it, and Ogle has worked well in the past. Indeed now it still plays the video, but not the sound.
I have googled.
I have recompiled ALSA
I have checked all the basics (Volumes, & mutes)
It doesn't play as root, or as a user, the file permissions look fine.
I have recomplied Ogle and installed it.
I verified both ALSA and OSS are activated in the Kernel
It does however emit a high-pitch whine when trying to play somthing. I mean the kind of ear piercing sound that gives you an instant headache.
It doesn't play noise even in the soundcard detection application.
It worked 2 days ago. I did nothing since then.
That is one of my biggest problems with Linux. "Automatic detection failed, sound won't work on this system." OK
. No troubleshooting buttons, nothing. just "Well that didn't work? Hmm, i'm stumped sorry."
I'm Running Fedora Core 2, with Kernal 2.6.7-1.494.2.2. I get the same problem wiht Kernaql 2.6.5-1.358.
Any ideas anyone? Current Mood: confused
