Sound Card Problem

7 posts in this topic

So I turn on my Debian Etch box this morning, and my sound card has stopped working. Everything was fine yesterday, but today, I dunno. I've only been using Linux for a few months, and haven't got the faintest idea of where to look!

The exact error is:

No Volume Control Gstreamer plugins and/or devices found

Any ideas?

is the module for your sound card loaded or support built into the kernel. It sounds like it's either not there or gstreamer is missing which is what I believe gnome uses to play sounds.

I'd think so, as I said, i turned off the computer one day, turned it on the next, and it doesn't work! :blink:

I understand how to use modprobe, but how do I find out what module I actually need to check for?

I don't know what module your sound card uses, but you can use lsmod to list all the modules loaded. Did you upgrade, install, or remove any packages before you shutdown?

Try reinstalling the package for gstreamer. Assuming you use ALSA for your sound card, I would do this:

apt-get install --reinstall gstreamer0.10-alsa

If you use ALSA, also try running 'alsaconf' again. It will go through a ncurses interface leading to the reload of the ALSA drivers on your system.

Here is a link to all things gstreamer in the Debian Repos:

(just in case you need to know the name of another package.)

Yeah, I use Alsa. I think I might of found the problem..

No supported PnP or PCI card found.

I did move my computer, so I'll check to see if the card is dislodged! :lol:

Thanks!
