'Twas brillig, and John Frankish at 20/04/10 15:04 did gyre and gimble:
> Dumb question maybe, but..
> Does pulseaudio require alsa or oss to be configured to detect a soundcard or should it detect the soundcard without either alsa or oss configured?
> The reason I ask is that the pulseaudio udev module will not detect the soundcard on my dell latitude D430 with/without alsa configured, but module-detect will detect the soundcard as long as alsa is configured.
You very much need a working ALSA setup. If you're using Linux, forget
about OSS (it's a dead system long since purged from the kernel and as
such doomed to die a (sadly long and lingering) death).
If the udev-detect module doesn't work, then that is a problem. Make
sure your kernel is new enough for the udev version you are using.
