If you get that compile error about lX11, do this before compiling.
Code:
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/X11R7/lib"

What is strange is that I didn't encountered this error message last times I compiled retrovol (Puppy 4.31)! Is there any modification of your source files which could explain this?

Regards.

Should I remove the retrovol that came with 5.2.8 before installing this?

Make sure the relevant sound drivers are loaded (correctly)
and the device nodes are in the correct directory in /dev
AND they have the right rw permissions (root AND user) .

Retrovol has the annoying feature to quit totally if it encounters some errors while accessing the device nodes in these regards .

Yes. Until now, there was not an explicit inclusion of libX11 in retrovol. It happened automatically. But recently something changed (probably in the linker) which changed how libraries get included. I haven't read up on what actually happened, but the end result is that in the distros that included that change, many things that used to compile stopped compiling. So I had to add a -lX11 to the linker flags, which solves that problem.

Unfortunately, some quirk of earlier Puppies (up to at least 4.x, but apparently not 5.25) resulted in them tending to have issues locating Xorg's libraries. I remember solving it once, but it was years ago. I think I just had to edit /etc/ld.so.conf or something, so that it would look in /usr/X11R7/lib.

What is odd is that Puppy 4.x would locate libX11 just fine when it was included automatically, but when included explicitly it failed.

I haven't used 5.2.8 so I can't give you a simple "yes" or "no", but you probably don't need to remove it. What you can do to check though is find out where it is installed by running "which retrovol". If the binary is at /usr/bin/ (NOT /usr/local/bin), then there is no need to remove the old version. It will simply be overwritten. If for some reason it is installed at /usr/local/bin instead (which is the case for the 4.x version of the retrovol package), then you'd need to remove the old package first.

The problem is not with retrovol. It sounds like your system stopped recognizing your sound card for some reason. I couldn't tell you why; I don't actually know much about the nuts and bolts of Linux audio (I only managed to create retrovol via the power of extreme stubbornness). Try the things Karl said. Maybe do the sound wizard.

And Karl's right about retrovol, I need to make it more robust sometime. It would be cool if it could handle multiple sound cards simultaneously as well, instead of just one or the other - I hadn't really worried about that before, but I now know that USB microphones and such tend to show up as an entirely different card, so managing one of those via retrovol is probably a pain. These are things that probably won't happen for a while though.

This isn't working correctly: the original retrovol was in usr/bin, so I just install retrovol 0.12. It looks just like the retrovol I replaced (no extra sliders or controls). So then I use "remove built-in programs" take out retrovol, use the package manager to remove the one I installed. Reboot. Retrovol is still there. So then I trash the actual bin and reboot. It's finally gone.

Then I reinstall 0.12. To my surprise it looks just like original one that was built in to Puppy.

I want the one with the line input/mic switch and separate volumes and all that stuff that people are posting about. Did I download the wrong one?

Every soundcard has its own set of controls that it provides. Some have many, while others only have a couple. Retrovol doesn't magically create any new ones; it just shows the ones that exist on your particular soundcard. Any control that shows up in Alsamixer should appear in Retrovol, as long as you haven't opened the config window and set up a custom layout. If there are controls that show up in Alsamixer and do not show up in Retrovol, then there might be an error.

After re-reading your post, I wonder if what you mean is that you can't get the window to show up at all? Right-click on the icon instead of left-clicking, and either the full window will appear, or a menu with an option to open the full window will appear, depending on how it is configured.

If you have a USB microphone, it could be that it shows up as the first soundcard and the real soundcard is showing up as the second. The easy way to test that is to compare the results of running "alsamixer -c 0" and "alsamixer -c 1". If that second command pulls up the set of controls you want, then you'll need to go into the configure window for retrovol and set it to use hw:1 instead of hw:0.

No, I don't have a USB mic, I just want to be able to select between line and mic for the input, as you can in Windows.

Okay, 0.12 is uploaded.

Warning: The gtk in the puppies I tested on (4.1.2 and 5.25) doesn't seem to like the localization files. Not sure if it's just a fonts issue or what. Works fine in my Arch install, where I originally tested everything. Looks like it's a UTF-8 issue of some sort. Probably something you guys with the non-English Puppies already fixed ages ago? Spits out messages like this:

Code:
(retrovol:5747): Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to set text from markup due to error parsing markup: Error on line 1 char 24: Invalid UTF-8 encoded text in name - not valid 'Lautst\x34rke: 21%'


Anyway, it looks like it still runs just fine, only some of the text gets goofed.


I just want to let you know:
localization is working fine with me Very Happy
running racy5225
retrovol-0.12.pet installed

If your locale does not have utf8 activated then you must use:
Code:
OUTPUT_CHARSET=UTF-8
export OUTPUT_CHARSET

HTH

if I change the sound card option in

Config > Hardware

to hw:1

retrovol crashes and will not start without a manual edit of /root/.retrovolrc

I wonder if the error could be handled in a more user friendly way?

I request --prefix=/usr. Otherwise, the localedir becomes /usr/local/share/locale, abnormal place for Puppies. /usr/share/locale is the normal place.
Code:
# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --host=i486-t2-linux-gnu
