I knew this day would come when I would have to actually figure out how Puppy works. I've been spoiled by the "Click n Play" ease of use with Puppy.

All of a sudden my Puppy Linux computer went mute. No sound.

I dual boot this pc with Ubuntu 8.04 and my sound works find using Ubuntu.

But Puppy 5.25 is my everyday work horse go to desktop.
And not having sound sux.

Putzing around with installing different music player - no improvement.
Uninstalled ALSA. Reboot. Re-install ALSA. Still nothing.

Used Alsa Sound Wizard - still nothing.

In Package Manager, I upgraded Alsa - still nothing.

However, when I did this upgrade I got a final mesage telling me of missing libraries.
I have no idea how to install missing libraries.
If I can't click n play, I don't know how.
Linux command line and locating specific Linux conf files is for really young versatile minds.
Here is the missing library message:

File /usr/lib/alsa-lib/smixer/smixer-python.so has these missing library files:
libpython2.7.so.1.0

File /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_pcm_speex.so has these missing library files:
libspeexdsp.so.1

File /usr/lib/alsa-lib/libasound_module_rate_speexrate.so has these missing library files:
libspeexdsp.so.1

I'm not holding out hope that this will fix my problem.
But this is where I am in my troubleshooting.


I use sound for not just music and movies, but also do some transcribing from emailed audio files.
At least I have Ubuntu to do that, but I have to reboot my pc to do that.


Before I get really drastic and dump my Puppy Install, then reinstall that would be like so-Windows.

Anyone ?

Great Thanks,

Hi Very Happy

This has happened with other versions of Puppy as well. You may want to see this thread (which was also posted on the alternative forum).

Cheers

Lucid 525 will not ever have word? They cannot leave people with a computer without sound. Python and this rotten library is needed

Can support recreation of /etc/asound.state today .
Sound was not muted ( no red X on retrovol in the tray) , but no sound from gnome-mplayer..

renamed /etc/asound.state for backup purposes,
ran
/etc/init.d/10alsa stop
two or three times,
deleted /etc/asound/state created by /etc/init.d/alsa stop
ran
/etc/init.d/10_alsa start
[ probably needs to modprobe snd_MY_MAIN_driver_name too ]
and had sound.

Reason : Very old savefile with snd_intel8x0 driver settings , now having snd_hda_intel in use .
