View Full Version : Pulseaudio...or not
Oct 17th 2010, 05:02 PM
So, my onboard sound card is old and doesn't work well with pulseaudio. I get strange noises on sound. It always worked great with previous versions of Kubuntu, but I had this problem with Ubuntu versions with pulseaudio. I just would like to know how to have the sound working like in previous versions of Kubuntu. I tried removing pulseaudio and rebooting, but that didn't solve the problem.
Thanks in advance for your help.

we would need to know what sound card you have, as well es exactly what packages you removed - maybe some were missed.
If you are experiencing the same sound problems both with and without pulse, then it not likely a pulseaudio problem.

I have selected purge with Muon package manager on the package named "pulseaudio" and it also removed other 3. The marked packages that I removed are here:
Dunno if this helps but here it goes:
zhao@zhao-desktop:~$ cat /proc/asound/modules
It's an onboard sound card (if we can call it that). The motherboard is Asus P5S800-VM (http://www.superwarehouse.com/Asus_P5S800-VM_microATX_Mainboard/P5S800-VM/ps/464501)
Or from "sudo lshw"
