I'm trying to get sound from my RPi running Arch Linux ARM.
I understand the sound is muted by default and that the sound drivers are very much experimental.
I've tried modprobe snd-bcm2835 as root. This seems to have little problems. However, when I then do lsmod I get only the following:
- Code: Select all
[root@Gimli ~]# lsmod
Module Size Used by
ipv6 221660 18
evdev 6820 0
... no sign of the sound module.
However, I'm beginning to wonder if its down to the kernel version and incompatibility of the sound driver? doing uname -r gives me 3.1.9-15-ARCH+
However, when I then look at the sound module location:
it shows: snd-bcm2835.ko
Is there an incompatibility? I feel I've exhausted all options, or have I missed something?
Its not really a huge deal anyway, it would just be nice to have a working sound card so as to be able to code stuff that makes use of sound. If there's no way of it working, I'll just live without it.
