I'm running Haiku R1A2 OS on a Dell E520 which has an Intel 82801H (ICH8) soundcard.
Unfortunately the hda driver for Haiku, which should be appropriate for this card, is buggy so it didn't work for me.
However, I was able to get a Haiku version of OSS
to work perfectly by disabling both the pre-installed hda and auich sound drivers.
Interesting that although OSSTEST worked fine when I had disabled the hda driver (All tests completed OK -- although only got sound from one of 16 audio engines), the media player gave no sound until I had additionally disabled the auich driver.
About a week ago, however, I had to do a clean re-install of Haiku and subsequently went about configuring the OS for my normal use. Once again, I installed OSS for Haiku (from the above link), disabled the hda and auich drivers but this time no sound.
Now OSSTEST works just as before (All tests completed OK -- although hear sound only from one of 16 audio engines). Nevertheless, no amount of enabling or disabling the other sound drivers has allowed my media player to produce sound.
Perhaps the problem lies in the mixer. However, in Haiku there is no GUI for the mixer and I have not succeeded in experimenting as suggested in the troubleshooting section
of the OSS wiki.
Can anybody help me get sound working here?
