Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

I suggest you reenable hotplug and check with lsmod which modules you have running. Then disable hotplug, enable hwd and check whether hwd has loaded the modules or not. If not, just add them to modules array in rc.conf and voilá.

Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

give hwdetect a try by enabling:
MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes"
in rc.conf
hwd is good, hwdetect is better wink

I don't have hotplug anymore, and when I tried to install it i was asked to remove udev, and that doesn't sound like a good idea to me smile

Do I have to install anything for that to work? Because when i tried it, it did nothing.

Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

Hotplug is deprecated by the udev in [testing].

Make sure your initscripts are up-to-date. And comment out hwd from the DAEMON array of rc.conf.

Turns out my kernel version is too old sad i have 2.6.10 and hwdetect needs 2.6.14. So im stuck.

Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

How about installing a current kernel? :?

(If you're sticking with the old one to keep DevFS, then I'll advice you that the current version of uDev doesn't seem to have any problems, and works better for me than DevFS ever did.)

Yea, I should probably upgrade the kernel, I'm not very good at doing that tho, and I'm kind of afraid that it would fsck my whole system up. :x

Anyways, I found the problem, it was kind of obvious, lshwd didn't load the nvsound module which seems to be a pretty obvious module to load smile

Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

Simple Question:
Should I switch from

DAEMONS=(... hotplug ...)

to

DAEMONS=(... hwdetect ...)

Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

no!
hwdetect is triggered by
MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes"
in rc.conf

Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

Using hwdetect instead of hotplug I have a error while booting:
/etc/hwdetect not found

The alsarestorescript says: no soundcard found.
However, checking the loaded soundmodules via hwdetect --show-sound shows that all needed drivers are loaded.

Sound is "running" - but the mixerlevel is always 0.
Why?

Re: No sound after disabling hotplug

hwdetect is triggered if  MOD_AUTOLOAD="yes" is in rc.conf
nothing else is needed.
to execute hwdetect by hand jsut run hwdetect --help as root
