No Sound at all

Post by Darknessraptor »

Hello

I have a fresh install of GhostBSD, and I have not sound at all on any device: (HDMI, Rear and Front analog input & outputs).

Here my sound hardware outputs:

Welcome to GhostBSD.

What happens when you make the default sound device to 2.
Do you get sound through the headphone jack?

Your card should be working. It's supported.

What version of GhostBSD are you using?

:D Glad you are here. "I can hear you now" Verizon TV quote.

pulseaudio , gstreamer-plugins-all... sudo sysctl hw.snd.default_unit=2 you unit may differ try that.

Please keep text notes on what you try and fail AND what you try and works. In the near future, I am working on application to support starting and enabling sound on new Ghostbsd installations. your intermediate notes on failures and success will help me write that Python app.

nids values are important.

Hello Neville;

I set as device 2; and still nothing happen. I have two outputs connected and nothing. I agree, yes it's supported, so what could it be?

My Version is:
