I'm trying to set up an ogg jukebox. The difficult things are out of the
way. I have a script for auto-ripping CD's on insertion into the drive,
complete with a script to fetch album art from Amazon. All nice and
The thing which has me stumped however, is the fact that I can't
actually get it to play music. Which is to say that alsaconf recognises
my on-board Via8233 AC97, sets everything up, and then trys to play a
sample sound. Nothing. XMMS etc. all play happily without error, but
there is no sound. I've checked the mixer settings, the speakers, all of
that. I've googled, but all of the terms involved are a tad vague.
So does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can debug this? Are
there extra reporting tools in ALSA that I can turn on? Anything?
Thanks in advance,
