    I seemed to have lost the post I just made. ???

    I updated antiX-17 this morning, and lost all sound afterwards.

    My AMD desktop multi-boots MX-16, Win 7, and AntiX-17 since we started beta testing. Earlier today I was listening to YT songs while surfing with Chromium. I did the normal “apt-get update & apt-get dist-upgrade”, and the only update was for “wget”. After a bit, I rebooted to work in win-7 for a while, then shut it down. Restarted machine to go to antiX-17 and had NO SOUND. I rebooted into MX-16 and win-7 and have sound in both of those. ??? But going into antiX-17 I have no sound. I rechecked the Volume Control and Preferences and everything is looking at the HDA ATI SB. (My nVidia video has HMDI.) I tried using the Control Center to test the sound card and that shows it passed, but no sound. ??

    Here we go again. Sound has been the bane of Linux since its conception.

    My desktop AMD desktop has MX-16, Win7, and AntiX-17 multi-booting. All through the beta tests with antiX-17 I had no problems. This morning I was checking my mail and chilling to some YouTube songs. I decided to do the normal “apt-get update & apt-get dist-upgrade” this morning. The only item shown was “wget” which updated without incident. I shut down antiX for a few minutes because I had to do some work in win7. Rebooted machine and went back into antiX-17. NO SOUND??

    I rebooted machine, trying both MX-16 and Win7 for sound. No problems. But antiX-17 still has no sound.

    My motherboard has the built-in ATI HDA sound which is what I normally utilize. (My Nvidia video card uses its own for HDMI.) I use Chromium for online browsing. I have checked my setting in volume control and nothing seems to have changed. And no I do not have PulseAudio installed. Now I’m puzzled.

    edit: I was just searching my files and found no etc/modprobe.d/snd-hda-intel.conf. Could this be the problem?

    Do you have sound on mp3 files on your computer. So we can see if this is just a browser problem?

    Does sound test work in antixcc?

    Fixed over in PM. What was said

    jdmeaux1952

    Okay. Except for a couple of errors on my download and the md5 did not match. I finally got AntiX17-64Full loaded on my desktop. And we have S O U N D. Did a update & dist-upgrade and it still works.

    jdmeaux1952

    UPDATE: Problem solved. It would appear that for some reason I ended up with an dist-upgrade that scrambled some files. Damn you, Cox Communications. The internet get wonky at times over here. Cox raises the rates but doesn’t repair their old equipment.

    Finally figured I had some files scrambled from fluctuating ISP transmission. Had to reinstall antiX-17 FINAL to get it working again. Sometimes you gotta bite the bullet when 2 heads can’t figure it out.
