FreeBSD 5.3-RELEASE / SB LIVE - loss of back speakers

Postby jamie » Mon Dec 06, 2004 12:53 pm

Hi, OSS worked fine with 5.2.1-RELEASE (and I kept it uptodate with the most recent drivers too, but only as far as OSS 3.99.1h)

But on 5.3-RELEASE, and with the 3.99.1i driver, the sound in the rear speakers is VERY quiet.

Using OSSXMIX the sound volume in the back speakers is full up.

The only way I can get equalibrium is to turn the front speakers down A LOT, then crank up the manual volume, but because the back speakers were normally so attentuated, this causes distortion (and I can't crank the system up loud for decent music :) )

Any ideas ? As I said, I've had no problems with the previous releases on 5.2.1-RELEASE, and there have been no hardware changes to the machine - just the OS and OSS upgrades.
And yes, I'm a license payer! (I commented out the serial number below in case it gives away too much, but I can PM / email it to you if required!)

Seems like the changes made to support the audigy2-value may be related. Please wait until Jan for a fix

Cheers Dev, that's all I wanted to know.. As long as the problem will be addressed sometime, I'm happy :D

Incidently, I booted into windows (first time in a year) which i also have installed on the same machine, and the back speakers work fine, so I can assure you that the cat hasn't chewed the wires or anything :)

Always read the forums first

I was trying to figure out what I was doing wrong and I guess I should have stopped by here first. I am having the same issue and now I know it's not me. Also, sound doesn't work with Doom 3, however the snd_emu10k driver for FreeBSD works perfectly fine (but no surround sound). I'm unsure if this is related to the rear speaker problem or not.

Cheers

And at least now I know it's not just me :)

FreeBSD Drivers

Postby guru » Sun Jan 02, 2005 8:38 pm

I am in the process of writing drivers for the Sound Blaster Live 5.1 series of cards on FreeBSD 5.3 (maybe future versions) and thought I would drop a note to everyone here. I am basing the core of the driver off the emu10k1 project on sourceforge.

'tis the end of January, and OSS/FreeBSD 3.99.2a Build: 200501190416 still hasn't fixed the problem :(

What is HTTP proxy server?
HTTP proxy server is a proxy allowing to work on the Internet with HTTP and (not always) FTP protocols. It can carry out caching of information downloaded from the Internet.Now HTTP proxy servers are the most widespread. Their support (ability to use them) is included into many programs: browsers, download managers etc. However, their support is not realized at a level of an operating system ? in order to use them, you should configure all programs, which should use proxies, in an appropriate way. HTTP proxy servers have several anonymity levels.
