Code: Select all
    localhost ~ # lspci | grep 'Audio'
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

It seems to not work ...
But i think that I have another pb which blocks this. I'll going to install again sabayon to try this.

Hi guys,

I tried that link. but it doesnt seem to work. But my sound works when I login as root, it doesn't work for other users. Not sure but is this some kind of a permission/rights issue or something.

Am new to Linux, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated so that I can explore and learn Sabayon and contribute in future.

Thanks and Regards
Vinod

I have finally reinstalled all. So now all is clean but i have no sound ...
I give you some commands and the results for helping you.
I have Sabayon 3.4f and a Dell Inspiron 1520.

When Sabayon starts I have this message :
Code: Select all
Sound server informational message:
Error while initializing the sound driver:
device /dev/dsp can't be opened (No such file or directory)
The sound server will continue, using the null output device.


Then, I give you some commands :

Code: Select all
