Re: Audio Cracking / Popping - Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24/30

Can you still get Windows drivers for it? Just curious Last official drivers from Turtle Beach were for XP. Apparently it can be made to work in Vista and Win 7 (e.g. http://www.jonathanjungman.com/blog/post/Windows-7-Turtle-Beach-Santa-Cruz-Sound-Card.aspx) My system is an XP / Mint 8 dual boot at...

Re: Audio Cracking / Popping - Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24/30

Thanks for your help. I've done some more Googling, and it looks like there's nothing I can do to make this hardware work. There are a number of bugs related to the CS46XX cards in the latest Ubuntu distribution on which (as I understand it) MINT 8 is based: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...

Re: Audio Cracking / Popping - Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24/30

OK...sorry to keep adding to the thread...but I've sorta sorted this. My problems above have been solved. I read through closely the output from my seemingly failed attempts to install the correct driver-thingy, and saw that it was first failing at the "patch" command. A bit of googling suggested th...

Re: Audio Cracking / Popping - Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24/30

Hmmm. Something's definitely wrong. I've no sound at all after a reboot. Thinking the sound may have got muted again, I tried:

sudo alsamixer

and got:

alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

Any help?

Re: Audio Cracking / Popping - Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24/30

Many thanks. The sound seems to be a lot better - but not perfect. I'm not sure if all went according to plan. I copied and pasted rather than typing, but starting with the "make" command, error messaged were appearing, e.g. the latter part of the output from make was: patch -p0 -i pcm.patch pcm.h m...

It tells me I need to use the 9.3 Legacy drivers, which according to http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=31845 are not compatible with Mint 8. My only choice seems to be the open-source drivers.

Erratic Desktop Effects - Work Only Sometimes

Can anyone explain why I can enable desktop effects only sometimes? Some boots they can be enabled, and others they can't. Graphics card (and machine generally) is 100% stable under WinXP. When they cannot be disabled, the results of a compiz-check are: ----------------------------------------------...

Re: Changing OS Boot Order to Default to XP - Newbie Alert

Solved! Managed to work it out for myself by googling elsewhere and not just on this forum. Involved changing a config file (grub.conf) in the /boot/grub directory. Had to change the default option from 0 to 4, as XP was the 5th in the list. Hardest thing was working out how to edit the file, as it ...

Audio Cracking / Popping - Cirrus Logic CS 4614/22/24/30

Hi All, I've just installed Mint 8 on my machine with a Turtle Beach Santa Cruz sound card. A bit of searching on this board suggested that doing a "lspci" was a good idea, and once I figured out how to do that, it came back with: 00:00.0 Host bridge: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8377 [KT400/KT600 AGP] ...

Changing OS Boot Order to Default to XP - Newbie Alert

Firstly - thanks in anticipation. I know newbie questions can be irritating, and I have searched the forum for an answer, honest! I've just successfully installed Mint 8 on my PC, dual booting with WinXP. All has worked well, and the Grub bootloader gives the option of booting into both OSes. Howeve...
