I'm running the following: Virtualbox on XP Pro SP2 Creative Soundblaster Live Card Echo Mona Sound Card After installing 64 Studio on Virtualbox, sound doesn't work although works fine in XP. I'm noob level and have been going through google searches the last couple of days but have not been able to resolve. Here is some initial information through some commands I have picked up...hopeing that someone might help me decipher. (seperate issue) Also, I know for a fact that I picked English during setup but I keep getting red lines under everything I type. 64studio:/home/user# sudo modprobe snd-emu10k1 64studio:/home/user# lspci | grep -i audio 64studio:/home/user# cat /proc/asound/modules 64studio:/home/user# cat /proc/asound/devices 1: : sequencer 33: : timer 64studio:/home/user# lsmod | grep snd snd_emu10k1_synth 7936 0 snd_emux_synth 32256 1 snd_emu10k1_synth snd_seq_virmidi 8320 1 snd_emux_synth snd_seq_midi_emul 7040 1 snd_emux_synth snd_emu10k1 123968 1 snd_emu10k1_synth snd_seq_dummy 4868 0 snd_seq_oss 30976 0 snd_seq_midi 9248 0 snd_seq_midi_event 8192 3 snd_seq_virmidi,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi snd_seq 48208 9 snd_emux_synth,snd_seq_virmidi,snd_seq_midi_emul,snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi,snd_seq_midi_event snd_rawmidi 23584 3 snd_seq_virmidi,snd_emu10k1,snd_seq_midi firmware_class 10880 1 snd_emu10k1 snd_ac97_codec 93732 1 snd_emu10k1 ac97_bus 3712 1 snd_ac97_codec snd_pcm_oss 40480 0 snd_mixer_oss 16640 1 snd_pcm_oss snd_pcm 73220 3 snd_emu10k1,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss snd_seq_device 8716 8 snd_emu10k1_synth,snd_emux_synth,snd_emu10k1,snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi,snd_seq,snd_rawmidi snd_timer 22148 3 snd_emu10k1,snd_seq,snd_pcm snd_page_alloc 10760 2 snd_emu10k1,snd_pcm snd_util_mem 5632 2 snd_emux_synth,snd_emu10k1 snd_hwdep 9860 2 snd_emux_synth,snd_emu10k1 snd 50020 13 snd_emux_synth,snd_seq_virmidi,snd_emu10k1,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq,snd_rawmidi,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_seq_device,snd_timer,snd_hwdep soundcore 9056 1 snd 64studio:/home/user# fdisk -l Disk /dev/hda: 8589 MB, 8589934592 bytes 255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 1044 cylinders Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System /dev/hda1 * 1 993 7976241 83 Linux /dev/hda2 994 1044 409657+ 5 Extended /dev/hda5 994 1044 409626 82 Linux swap / Solaris 64studio:/home/user# dmesg Linux version 2.6.21-1-multimedia-486 (Debian 2.6.21-2) (waldi@debian.org) (gcc version 4.1.2 20061115 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.1-21)) #1 SMP PREEMPT RT Fri Jun 22 19:13:23 UTC 2007 BIOS-provided physical RAM map: sanitize start sanitize end copy_e820_map() start: 0000000000000000 size: 000000000009fc00 end: 000000000009fc00 type: 1 copy_e820_map() type is E820_RAM copy_e820_map() start: 000000000009fc00 size: 0000000000000400 end: 00000000000a0000 type: 2 copy_e820_map() start: 00000000000f0000 size: 0000000000010000 end: 0000000000100000 type: 2 copy_e820_map() start: 0000000000100000 size: 000000000fef0000 end: 000000000fff0000 type: 1 copy_e820_map() type is E820_RAM copy_e820_map() start: 000000000fff0000 size: 0000000000010000 end: 0000000010000000 type: 3 copy_e820_map() start: 00000000fffc0000 size: 0000000000040000 end: 0000000100000000 type: 2 BIOS-e820: 0000000000000000 - 000000000009fc00 (usable) BIOS-e820: 000000000009fc00 - 00000000000a0000 (reserved) BIOS-e820: 00000000000f0000 - 0000000000100000 (reserved) BIOS-e820: 0000000000100000 - 000000000fff0000 (usable) BIOS-e820: 000000000fff0000 - 0000000010000000 (ACPI data) BIOS-e820: 00000000fffc0000 - 0000000100000000 (reserved) 0MB HIGHMEM available. 255MB LOWMEM available.

You'll have to install the nVidia way: Quite easy Instructions here: http://www.64studio.com/install_guide_6 http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_amd64_173.14.12.html extra info http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?s&forumid=14

I'm a little intimidated to say the least. I would like easier instructions if you are successful. I'll keep plugging away in the mean time. Thanks again for all the feedback.

I am compiling a nVidia driver for 64 Studio 2.1 amd64 at the moment. If it is successful, I'll post new (easier) instructions.

You guesed right... the 7050 is not supported by the driver pack currently in 64 Studio, but this is not a problem. Visit the nVidia site, and download and install the driver as per the instructions. After this is done you should have a fully working system. http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux_display_amd64_173.14.12.html Cheers,

Ok, so I reformatted a drive to boot and installed software. Once the machine restarted I got the following error.. Fatal server error: no screens found 1 Guessing this has something to do with video? BTW, this is the same box and hardware that I was using with the virtual environment.

I have used VM Ware...

And it works. But not very nice... LOTS of xruns due to obvious reasons.

This Creative card has been supported by 64 Studio since the very beginning. I believe that the problem might have slipped in somewhere in your virtualisation layer. Running 64 Studio in a virtual machine is OK if you just want to see what it looks like, but I would recommend you installing it as a dual boot rather than a virtual machine. Why? Because you are losing the best feature of the 64studio RT kernel by just installing it on a non RT OS like XP. my 2c

Thanks for the response. I think I may take your suggestion and dual boot just to see if I can get it to work. I actually first tried to use M$ Virtual PC which did not work out well.. couldn't get machine to boot at all. I had seen a post on Virtual Machine and that people have got it to work fine so I thought I would give it a try. Unfortunately, once it finished booting, I noticed the volume control in the lower right by the clock had a red "x" next to it. When I clicked on it I got two errors: "The volume control did not find any elements and/ordevices to control. This means either that you don't have the right GStreamer plugins installed, or that you don't have a sound card configured." AND "No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or device found." I just assumed that the sound card was not loading during the boot and that there would be a fix for it. Like I said, this is all new to me so maybe I'll just have to try what you suggested to see if that works. Thanks again.
