Cannot test sound

Sun Mar 10, 2013 9:30 pm

I am trying to follow the tutorial from the magpi issue 03 to get the sound to work but I can't test it.
I don't have any "Sound & Video" categorie in the menu and I don't know how to install one.
What should I do?
Thanks in advance

Shall we guess you have Raspbian "wheezy" installed, then log out so will be at the command line and type the following pressing enter key after each line typed:

sudo modprobe snd_bcm2835
sudo amixer cset numid=3 0

The above will autodetect sound output. Then follow this blog: ... -with-alsa
I will always assume you are running Raspbian for desktop and Raspbmc for XMBC !
