Well, that's one variable eliminated.

I will inform the Puppy person who sent me here of that news.

Thanks!

Thank you for this post, a lot of information there.

My kernel in the Puppy 4.24 is 2.6.30.5. Can I use one of these libraries to get my sound working? Sound works with Puppy 4.12, I guess the ALSA is different. Or an older version of ALSA? Is it possible to just revert to older ALSA with this kernel?

I'm using an old Micron laptop, a Trek ii. WIth some ESS card that is not covered by ALSA 1.0.20.

Thanks for any comments.

I believe you probably have one of those micron trek 2 agp using ess maestro2 ... It's generally not possible to use the alsa driver update here as they are kernel version specific. BTW, kernel 2.6.30.5 is using alsa-1.0.20 ...

There's essentially no major code changes between alsa-1.0.16 and alsa-1.0.20 for the ess maestro2 driver. I only see minor fixes and two added small subroutines for polling and jitter suppression. The init routines are still the same ...

To see if alsa-1.0.20 is indeed the cause of your audio borking up, I suggest trying the alsa-1.0.20 driver update on puppy 4.12 using a small save file ... please check your kernel version if you intend to try this ... If you do have audio after doing alsa-1.0.20 update on 4.12 then there could be something else borking p424 ... if you don't then kindly let me know and I'll see what I can do .....

Ok, kindly open a terminal and do these:

# echo 'VOLUME "PCM" 0' > /proc/asound/card0/oss_mixer

# echo 'PCM "PCM" 0' > /proc/asound/card0/oss_mixer

# lspci > /tmp/vt1708.txt

# cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#0 >> /tmp/vt1708.txt

# cat /proc/asound/card0/oss_mixer >> /tmp/vt1708.txt

# amixer controls >> /tmp/vt1708.txt

then look in /tmp for vt1708.txt, zip it up and post it here for me to look at the configs.

Hello,
I don't know either, both versions of alsa suggested a 1968 chip, but only the 1.0.16 made it work. Guess I'll stick with p412.
Thanks

Interesting ...

Yes, that is correct, ess maestro2 uses the ess1968 driver. Did you try the alsa update on p412 with pfix=ram or pup_save? If you wish to try for a patched alsa-1020 with 1016 reverted codes, kindly pm me ...

Thanks Patriot.
I put in Puppy4.30, and it found it right away, and doesn't forget it either!

Hello Smile

I've updated my alsa to 1.0.20 and now my alsa mixer is gone.
when I type in terminal alsamixer, I 've got this massage:
Code:
alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such device


Code:
amixer: Control default open error: No such device


I am using puppy NOP 413. wit 2.6.25.16 kernel. I've updated from 1.0.16

I've run alsa sound wizard- there was no error. but I have no sound and no mixer:(

@swiatmar - I renamed the alsamixer to alsamixer.bin and included the script that runs alsamixer in a terminal. That was probably the issue with the other version, since by default the newly compiled package will overwrite the script and leave the previous alsamixer.bin in place. This should have originally been done by leaving alsamixer with its original name and naming the script alsamixer.sh such that future upgrades would not break things.... but we are probably in too deep now so I have stuck with the established naming so-as to not break other unknowns.
