I'm not sure if my problem is related to the 64bit version or a general SuSE 9.1 issue, but as i'm using SuSE AMD64 i'll post it here:
Related to my hardware i had to change to the OpenSoundSystem (OSS) to have sound because i had no chance to get ALSA running. The OSS is running with excellent sound quality but now i tried to use the Enlightened Sound Demon (esd) the first time and something very strange happened :
uruk:/home/paco # esd - server format: sample rate = 48000 Hz audio_alsa: no cards found! uruk:/home/paco #
even if i define the sound-device in spawn_options in the esd Config files what shouldn't be necessary it fails:
uruk:/home/paco # esd - using device /dev/dsp0 - server format: sample rate = 48000 Hz ALSA lib pcm.c:1962:(snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM /dev/dsp0 uruk:/home/paco #
i know that esd normally works with OSS, i had this already running with SuSE 6.0 (!) - i have absolutely no idea why esd tries to open any non existent ALSA device - this seems to be a big riddle as i removed all sound devices with YaST2 and then i had disabled the ALSA kernel modules using the OSS soundconf ...
Just for becoming sure that the problem isn't caused by OSS in any way i installed OSS on a other computer running Mandrake 10 (as far is i know the program versions are very similiar to SuSE 9.1) the esd works out off the box ...
I'm really a bit confused now, my only explanation for that all is that the SuSE 9.1 esd seems to be broken in some way. Unfortunately i don't found a patch for it until nowwith YOU. Am i the first having this problem ?
Please, could somebody tell me what is going on here ?
best regards Franz
