      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

no sound from internet

Recommended Posts

In order to get skype working better, I removed pulseaudio. Now skype works better and I can still watch DVDs and listen to music, but I cannot get sound from internet sources, such as a news site. I've tried alsamixer in console and kmix, but no luck. Any idea where I can start finding the problem, and fixing it?





I forgot to mention that I use xine for my dvds and music.

Hi Keith.


Hope you got my other reply to your message OK.


I don't have an answer for your internet no-sound problem since I have no problems with sound in anything including the internet although having no pulseaudio. I would think that a sound problem with the internet is more likely a browser problem and maybe a browser app missing from your installed packages. In MCC go through the Audio section of installable packages and install anything that is related to your browser. Also do the same for your browser in Internet in MCC.


Cheers. John.

Would this have anything to do with the problem?

From /etc/modprobe.conf, I get this:


install scsi_hostadapter /sbin/modprobe pata_via; /sbin/modprobe sata_via; /bin/true

install ide-controller /sbin/modprobe ide_generic; /bin/true

install usb-interface /sbin/modprobe ehci_hcd; /sbin/modprobe uhci_hcd; /bin/true

alias pci:v00001106d00003065sv00001043sd000080EDbc02sc00i00 via_rhine

alias eth0 via_rhine


Would any of this be a part of my problem?
