    ALSA problem with integrated audio CS4236B

    Hello.

    My speaker icon displays the CS4236B ALSA Mixer. However, i can only play sounds with the OSS settings in system/preference/sound. All other settings (Autodetect, ALSA and PulseAudio) don't work or just hang.

    I would like to get ALSA working if possible.

    Ubunto SoundTroubleShooting suggested the following steps:

    Code:
    david@david-desktop:~$ aplay -l
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: CS4236B [CS4236B], device 0: CS4231 [CS4236B]
      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    System recognises soundcard

    Code:
    david@david-desktop:~$ find /lib/modules/`uname -r` | grep snd

    Not very informative is it!!!

    From the ALSA project homepage, it says i must turn on the sound support soundcore module. To check this i get the following:

    Code:
    david@david-desktop:~$ modinfo soundcore
    filename:       /lib/modules/2.6.27-7-generic/kernel/sound/soundcore.ko
    alias:          char-major-14-*
    license:        GPL
    author:         Alan Cox
    description:    Core sound module
    srcversion:     E4F49ED9C4CFD1A5A923330
    depends:        
    vermagic:       2.6.27-7-generic SMP mod_unload modversions 586
    Does this mean i have the module?
    If so, what do i do now?

    Finally several other thread suggested commands reveal the following:

    Code:
    david@david-desktop:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
     0 [CS4236B        ]: CS4236B - CS4236B

    Now i'm really stuck and confused. Any further help or tips would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: ALSA problem with integrated audio CS4236B

    Had no luck over the last week trying to get ALSA working, so decided to plumb for OSS, even though the Crystal CS4236 isn't listed in the OSS devices list.

    Many thanks to Temüjin

    I'm still not sure what it is i'm running with (OSS or ALSA) because i have to set everything to OSS in sysyem/preference/sounds to satisfy desktop sounds, music and flash even though i can run with the ALSA or OSS mixer. I selected ALSA, only because it has more options.
