everything from /etc/modprobe.d is being parsed by udev regardless of it's name.
please run:

Code: Select all

echo "blacklist snd-usb-audio" > /etc/modprobe.d/good-bear-for-fanthom.conf
and will be ok.
Flash Player still reacts the same, NO sound!
Perhaps Flash needs an Upgrade? MP3Streamer is now blacklisted, by using your code, since it is absent from alsamixer.

I see no indication MP3Streamer is compatible w/Linux.

Thanks for all the help.

@willard

flashplayer uses 'PCM' (software mixer if i'm not mistaken) so please run alsamixer and make sure it's not muted.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

Dear fanthom,
YouTube has been messing with their code the last couple days, which might have some impact. I always have alsamixer armed and ready before surfing YouTube and since Porteus works w/MPlayer, the root cause must be somewhere else? Alsamixer appears void of a 'balance' control.

Dear fanthom:

Perhaps the root cause lies in Porteus' equivalent to the Slackware 'libflahplayer.so' lib? I'm stumpt!

@willard

does your CPU support sse2 instructions? maybe downgrading of flashplayer could help you?
please have a look on this thread:

Dear fanthom:
Here is the Turion64 SPEC, for your reference.

I'm familiar w/SSE but not SSE2 Instructions, which the hp dv8000 might not support . . Please confirm?

Dear fanthom:
Yes, you can see, AMD Turion 64 can use the SSE2 instruction set. My gut feeling points to 'alsamixer'. I would suggest bundleing tried & true alternatives to 'alsamixer', in the future. Good things come in SMALL packages, but there is always that ten percent!

Pretty much every "Alternative" to alsamixer that you are thinking of is built on top of alsa, utilizing alsa tools as a back end...unless you mean OSS or perhaps pulseaudio. But I do believe pulseaudio still requires working alsa, wrapping around it.

If you have an sse2 CPU, there was a bug with flashplayer which likely affects you -- it has been resolved on other systems by downgrading flashplayer, as shown in the link fanthom pointed to. Please try using that version of flashplayer and let us know if sound is still missing.
Please take a look at our online documentation, here. Suggestions are welcome!

Dear Ahau:
Hindsight is 20/20! Everything functions ok w/iceweasel bundled w/knoppix 7.03. If YouTube needs flashplayer, I see no sign of it as an iceweasel plugin. Can I assumb it doesn't need it? If it does, can its flashplayer version be located/verified? 'GNOME-AlsaMixer' is what I got to function w/knoppix.

Dear Ahau:
In the past, some like gnome-alsamixer, others favor pulseaudio. I'm quite sure Porteus needs these alternatives. Downgrading flashplayer did NOT restore YouTube audio on the hp dv8000 hardware. Very difficult problem!

I'm using hp dv6000 with no problems.
Please boot to Trinity and try the following (since we are clutching at straws now).

From console start your browser as root and check sound in YT
Go to system control panel /sound system and play with 'full duplex'

Also try this firefox:
viewtopic.php?f=51&t=1519
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.

Dear brokenman:
same as usually. . .why not incorporate gnome-alsamixer ??
willard
PS. at-least sound system 'test sound' did function ok.

Posted after 1 day 3 hours 6 minutes 53 seconds:
Hi,
Went to Debian, from PPM and found gnome-alsamixer, which trapped this error:
  • Password:
    root@porteus:/home/guest# gnome-alsamixer
    gnome-alsamixer: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeui-2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
    root@porteus:/home/guest#
Using XFCE/PPM, can 'libgnomeui-2.so.0' be searched and indexed? if so, how?

gnome-alsa is going to drag in a lot of deps. libgnomeui-2.so.0 will most certainly not be the last requirement.

In any case grab it from here and convert it from console using: rpm2xzm package.rpm
http://pkgs.org/fedora-17/fedora-i386/l ... /download/

Dear brokenman:

Please provide more details. I'm still stuck in DOS/window$, e.g., PATH, etc.
If I download a rpm2xzm utility, XFCE cannot find it. Therefore, 'PATH' syntax would help.
