Default "asoundconf list" doesn't find my audiocards , but lspci does :s

Hi all,

I just installed 64Studio again, from the old 1.0.0_i386 install CD I had, and then upgraded - updated,

but I could use some help with the alsa configuration for my M-Audio Delta 1010

When i type in the terminal:


$ asoundconf list
Names of available sound cards:
$

is all I get, but when I type:

$ lspci

I get between other lines:


00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH 4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX 4000 AGP* 8x] (rev c1)

02:02.0 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies Inc. ICE1712 [Envy24] PCI Multi-Channel I/O Controller (rev 02)


Then i tried typing:

$ alsaconf
bash: alsaconf: command not found

$


:s
Where do I go now ?

With JACK Control, I can use the mobo's Intel 82801DB-ITCH4 output,
but of course, I want to use the 8 channel M1010

Too bad the old simple trick i used doesn't seem to work anymore, and I don't have any idea where to start looking now .


note: JACK Control does see the M Audio Delta 1010 MIDI I/O ports

Any help is much appreciated here ...

Greetz & enjoy "freedom" ;-)
Peter

Hi


You must become root before running alsaconf.



spinymouse@64studio:~$ alsaconf

bash: alsaconf: command not found

spinymouse@64studio:~$ su

Password:

64studio:/home/spinymouse# alsaconf



and everything will be fine .*Oooh yessssss ! Life can be so easy , thanks a lot ! (jumps around)

..
The alsaconf script asked me if I wanted to change a file (don't remember wich) , I answered "yes"

and it reported succes , do I need to reload something now ? Because after I installed
hwinfo , I got this :

# hwinfo --sound

.. and I guess that's only about the onbaord card ..

but I didn't go tru number 12 of the users FAQ, I'll try that now
*


See http://www.64studio.com/faq_user, point 12 or change it by alsaconf


or by the settings of QJackCtl.*

If you install hwinfo you can run as root hwinfo --sound and see what

the driver names are.
Ok , hwinfo, thanks again .. ask 1 question, learn 2 things )

this should be attached,* so my lines must become , if I'm right :


alias snd-card-0 snd_ice1712
options snd_ice1712 index=0
alias snd-card-1 snd_intel8x0
options snd_intel8x0 index=1

I'm not sure about the Midisport 2x2 USB midi ports now,

alias snd-card-2 snd-usb-audio

options snd-usb-audio index=2

(as the FAQ says)
or

alias snd-card-2 snd_Midiman

options snd_Midiman index=2

'cause lsusb names the midisport as "Midiman" ?



Thanks a lot for your help already Ralf

Peter

Default "asoundconf list" doesn't find my audiocards , but lspci does :s

It's already better now ...

64studio:/home/peter# cat /proc/asound/cards
*0 [M1010********* ]: ICE1712 - M Audio Delta 1010
********************* M Audio Delta 1010 at 0xdc00, irq 185

*1 [I82801DBICH4** ]: ICH4 - Intel 82801DB-ICH4
********************* Intel 82801DB-ICH4 with AD1981B at 0xfebff800, irq 209
*2 [M2x2********** ]: USB-Audio - MidiSport 2x2
********************* M-Audio MidiSport 2x2 at usb-0000:00:1d.0-2, full speed


the cards stay on their position in the list
but when I try to setup JACK Control to use the M Audio, it can't connect to the server ..

jack messages:
ALSA: cannot set channel count to 8 for capture

ALSA: cannot configure capture channel
cannot load driver module alsa

Jack works fine with the onboard card* but not with the* M1010 audio, only MIDI works

and I had to restart before the card was seen .


Any ideas are welcome ..

Cheers
Peter

Do you mean I should leave the "number of channels" in qjackctl's setup panel blank ?

I use qjackctl too (from the main menu >> sound >> JACK Control)

and pasted part the "messages output" here before .

When I select the hw:0 M-Audio card like you said, I get these error messages ...
Also, it's easier if I can skip the step of setting up Qjackctl every day, a computer is about automation no ? :-)


Maybe I didn't get the clue of what you mean, thanks for the reply anyway.
Peter

OK, after a short sleep, here's what I did and my results:

1. Opened qjackctl >> Setup... >> Input & Output Channels to 0 (no option to make it really "blank")
2. press start on qjackctl

3: read the following messages:
loading driver ..
apparent rate = 44100
creating alsa driver ... hw:0|hw:0|512|2|44100|4|2|hwmon|swmeter|-|32bit
control device hw:0
the playback device "hw:0" is already in use. Please stop the application using it and run JACK again

4: Shutdown Iceweasel that successful played some flash media through the M1010 before I tried Jack, press start again
5: Smile ! >> 12 input channels , 10 output channels , full M1010 heaven :-)

Thanks a lot for the advice !


Btw, Is there some sort of benchmark testing program I could run to see how good/bad my system runs now ?
I'll start running some softsynths and test Rosegarden now but if there's some standard test, I'd like to ad my results...


Anyway, thanks for showing me the sweet way into freedom again peeps , yoohoo !
