Re: Problems w/mia sound (again); after Debian Squeeze "upgrade"

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]



OK, thanks much Giuliano & Sergei!  I got the alsa driver updated (it appears) by simply installing the Header files for Debian Squeeze, Linux 2.6.32-5-686 (this is my specific kernel), which I found & installed via Synaptic Package Manager... To be clear, the first time I tried, I forgot the './configure --with-cards=mia,virmidi --with-sequencer=yes' & just did  ./configure, make make install' After realizing my error, I then reinstalled using the commands you offered Giuliano. 

Problem now is that I get the same result as before, regarding sound & various sound aps (dis)functioning.  I'm inclined to think that perhaps the Alsa driver may not have been (all?) of the problem here (unless doing the install before, somehow made a unrepaired error?). Now given that the header files seem to have disappeared before (don't know this for sure, but in any case, I had working sound until this mentioned Feb "update"), could there be some problem with the MiaMidi firmware too (or something like this)?

These below, are some of the options someone else has earlier suggested (Debian Multimedia forum, & they just gave up trying after a few tries, & I got left, hanging), that I tried, & now, retried, but look like same results as before (including no sound):

Thanks for your helps here, I am not looking forward to doing an(other) clean install! Perhaps there is another suitable kernel available by now, like maybe an 'rt' kernel? & then, would I have to do a more or less complicated, risky compilation?)! 

Regards, 
Henry 

P.s., Giuliano, do my PM emails come through to you now?

Yes, but it also has to be configured. Hopefully he can get the config
from /proc/config.gz .
