Can you please help me with my audio issues? [SOLVED]

Post#1 by llgrep » 15 Aug 2015, 20:47

I am excited to use Porteus; After a few days I was able to get persistent storage working.
Kindly help me with my audio issues.

I guess this might help:

Hello llgrep
First try the sound card settings in 'Porteus Settings Centre'.

another try:
create asound.conf file with following content:

Code: Select all

defaults.pcm.card 1
defaults.ctl.card 1
and copy it to /etc

Hi Donald,

Thank you for your help.
I just created this file. Let me reboot to see if this works. Thanks.

Code: Select all

root@porteus:/etc# ls | grep asound
asound.state@
root@porteus:/etc# touch asound.conf
root@porteus:/etc# vi asound.conf
root@porteus:/etc# head asound.conf
defaults.pcm.card 1
defaults.ctl.card 1
root@porteus:/etc# 
Regards,
Sam

Hi Donald,

Thank you ; this solved the issue.
One doubt though -- asound.conf is not a requirement per documentation. How did it help?

This problem seems to come out on certain computers. As most other computers do not present the problem, there is no need for a specific comment on the issue.
You can also google porteus asound.conf for more threads on the topic. This might provide you with some valuable answers:
