oss4 - annoying hell beep

It seems that I have problems with my sound card. I am using OSS, and at system boot, when it is initialized, a constant, continuous and very very loud and annoying beep starts to sound and it does not stop never. I cannot work trying to investigate what is happening by making use of ossdetect, ossinfo and comands like that because the beep does not stop and it so annoying that I have to shutdown the laptop.... so please, how can I solve this?

I highly apprecite if someone can help me. I have searched in arch wiki related to oss and read a lot of information but I have not work with my laptop as this sound is very annoying...

ossinfo output:

Re: oss4 - annoying hell beep

It seems that I have successfully blacklisted pcspkr by inserting install pcspkr /bin/false in modprobe.conf in /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf and then adding this file to files section in /etc/mkinitcpio.conf and finally doing mkinitcpio -p linux.

I guess if there is a way to correctly configure oss and be sure that it works by keeping blacklisted pcspkr because if I have not properly configured oss, and I remove the blacklist done, a loud beep starts to sound. So I only want to remove the blacklist when I am sure oss is correctly configured. I want to avoid the annoying beep that never stops.

Any ideas?

Re: oss4 - annoying hell beep

Unfortunately, I have not solved this yet... I have done a lot of thing that I have found in arch forum but nothing works for me.

Below I post some outputs related to some commands executed from console. I have blacklisted pcspkr in a different ways but nothing works, this is loaded by systemd.
I continue having no sound and that annoying beep continues once logging.

Once logging I do the following:

1.-  Output for systemctl status oss.service

oss.service - Open Sound System v4
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/oss.service; enabled)
   Active: activating (start) since vie 2013-04-26 19:42:18 CEST; 1min 42s ago
 Main PID: 438 (soundon)
   CGroup: name=systemd:/system/oss.service
           ├─438 /bin/sh /usr/sbin/soundon
           ├─463 /usr/sbin/ossvermagic -z -s
           └─464 /usr/sbin/ossvermagic -z -s

2.- Output for ossinfo -v3

No /dev/mixer device available in your system.
Perhaps Open Sound System is not installed or running.

3.- Output for ossmix -a

/dev/mixer: No such file or directory

4.- At this point I do the following.
Output for systemctl status oss.service:

oss.service - Open Sound System v4
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/oss.service; enabled)
   Active: activating (start) since vie 2013-04-26 19:42:18 CEST; 2min 24s ago
 Main PID: 438 (soundon)
   CGroup: name=systemd:/system/oss.service
           ├─ 438 /bin/sh /usr/sbin/soundon
           ├─ 463 /usr/sbin/ossvermagic -z -s
           ├─ 464 /usr/sbin/ossvermagic -z -s
           ├─4944 sh -c gunzip -c /usr/lib/modules/3.8.8-2-ARCH/kernel/driver...
           └─4946 /bin/sh /usr/bin/gunzip -c /usr/lib/modules/3.8.8-2-ARCH/ke...

5.-As in step 2 it is said that maybe open sound system is not installed and running, first I do soundoff and then soundon:
5.1- Output for soundoff

OSS not loaded.

5.2- Output for soundon

(....)

6.- Again output for systemctl status oss.service after doing soundon:

oss.service - Open Sound System v4
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/oss.service; enabled)
   Active: activating (start) since vie 2013-04-26 19:42:18 CEST; 2min 59s ago

           ├─ 438 /bin/sh /usr/sbin/soundon
           └─6421 sync

Again I show output twice again

oss.service - Open Sound System v4
   Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/oss.service; enabled)
   Active: active (exited) since vie 2013-04-26 19:45:39 CEST; 9s ago
  Process: 438 ExecStart=/usr/sbin/soundon (code=exited, status=0/SUCCESS)

7.- Now again I execute the commands you have told me.
7.1- Output for ossinfo -v3

Re: oss4 - annoying hell beep

Are you sure that you enabled input-mix-mute ?

I have already solved this issue. As you said and in the link you provided says it was a problem related to Microphone playing through output channels:

"By default, OSS plays back the microphone through the speakers. To disable this in ossxmix find the Misc section and uncheck every input-mix-mute box. "

In my case there was a conflict with mic-in in ossxmix: The conflict was between section "codec1 | jack | int-mic" and "codec1 | misc | int-mic" so by muting int-mic in misc I have solved the problem. Now, once log in in Arch, the beep only sound less than a second and then stops as when oss service is initialized, file "mixer.save" in "/usr/lib/oss/etc" is read and there int-mic is set to mute.

Anyway, despite beep is kept less than a second, it would be great to avoid it so any ideas here? Maybe, by default, avoid OSS plays back the microphone through the speakers without waiting to read mixer.save file on oss service initialized?

Also, as a result of the migration to the new laptop, there are two pending issues related to oss that I have pending to solve:

1). I have an executable script to execute ossxmix in background on arch boot up. This executable script is placed at "~/.config/autostart" folder with the name "ossxmix.desktop". See below script:

[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Exec=/usr/local/bin/ossxmix_bg
Hidden=false
X-GNOME-Autostart-enabled=true
Name[en_US]=OSSXMIX
Name=Open Sound System Mixer
Comment[en_US]=Open Sound System Mixer
Comment=Open Sound System Mixer

Note: path "/usr/local/bin/" exists as well as the executable script ossxmix_bg

also ossxmix_bg code is the following:

#!/bin/sh
exec /usr/bin/ossxmix -b

ISSUE: ossxmix  is not executed once log in. Any ideas here?

2). In my old laptop, previous to do the migration to the new one, I could control volume through volume icon/button (that in the system tray - at the far-right of the top Gnome panel-), I mean, when I modified the volume from ossxmix that volume was updated in the gnome control volume, and vice versa. There was a kind of binding but I do not remember how I did it in the past.... I read from a arch wiki or something... I do not remember, but now it is not working. ossxmix was fully integrate with gnome volume control.

I know that I have one script and one system tray applet to do this, ossvol and ossvolctl, see below. They are placed at /usr/bin

ossvol:

#!/bin/bash
#
# ossvol is a simple script to manage oss volume levels and muting.

if __name__ == "__main__":
	icon = StatusIcon()
	icon.set_visible(True)
	
	try:
		gtk.main()
	except KeyboardInterrupt:
		print("")

For some reason it seems like the binding has been broken or something else happens that I do not know. Now ossxmix is not fully intregrate with gnome volume control through volume icon/button in the system tray - at the far-right of the top Gnome panel-. Any ideas here?


Thanks in advance!

Re: oss4 - annoying hell beep

It seems like the script in ~/.config/autostart/ are executed before oss service is started so I think maybe this is the cause. I have observed that oss service is started too later, after log in into arch it takes a few minutes to start. So how to make oss service to start just before log in screen and before scripts in ~/.config/autostart for example?

Thanks!

For point 2 described in the previous post I have opened a new post rather than discuss here. Below the link:
