Can't Change Volume

Postby isoscelesrectangle on Wed Dec 29, 2010 2:16 am

Hi all,
I have an issue with my Linux Mint Debian audio.
I have an Intel HDA card I think. This is my LSPCI output:
Code: Select all
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)
        Subsystem: Dell Device 0414
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22
        Memory at f0700000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
        Capabilities: <access denied>
        Kernel driver in use: oss_hdaudio

As you can see here, I have OSS installed. This comes after my messing around with my audio for 3 days to get it working. The problem now is that since I have KDE installed, OSSMIX isn't working, nor is KMix. I can't change the volume of my speakers. When I go to Multimedia configuration, I only see the following options:
HDA Intel (HDA Generic) (This one is grayed out)
HD-Audio Generic, ATI HDMI (HDMI Audio Output) (Also grayed out)
default (This one is the only one that is not grayed out, and is the one I'm using.)
When I click on the backend tab, it says the following:
Gstreamer works, but Xine doesn't.
Any ideas?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
