      This is a very old laptop, as the BIOS pointed to a date 18 years ago before I changed the CMOS battery. And testing multiple distributions on it, Devuan could make the sound work. Then later I installed Bento antiX (32bits of course) but then the sound didn’t play anymore. So I wondered why, and I just went through the files in /etc/modprobe.d and in the list of packages and found these:

      (while looking into lshw I could see both the nvidia modem and nvidia audio chipset were using the same snd_intel8x0m driver, so I guessed it should be prevented to be loaded somehow, I just had not thought the name of the file could be “a thing” ?).
      Then even after a reboot it was not enough, and before that, trying to use pulseaudio had not worked, it would not succeed in connecting to the pulse server… This is when I decided to install this package from the Devuan repos : debian-pulseaudio-config-override_1.0_all.deb

      and this did the trick. So I wanted to tell you about it, because it has been a great improvement for this laptop. Then next Bento antiX out will have it too (just the package installed, and the blacklist file).

      I think it would be a good addition to antiX.


        I saw someone linking to this in Facebook.

        Doesn’t this package simply remove the disable autospawn?

        Description: Debian configuration overrides for pulseaudio
         empty package which overrides upstream configuration.
           - remove /etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf

        This is only for sessions NOT using desktop-session-antiX (like xfce, lxde, kde…).
        Wouldn’t you have simply edit this file (/etc/pulse/client.conf.d/00-disable-autospawn.conf or follow the instruction dolphin_oracle explained in its video?
        This package should not be needed at all.

        In antiX, using desktop-session, edit desktop-session’s startup file and add pulseaudio -D & before the volume-icon entry, as explained at least 10 times in the forum.

          Bentoo doesn’t use the antiX desktop session files, so both of you are correct.

          Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

          antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.
