    Default [Solved] Backtrack 5 R2 Gnome 64bit - sound interface problem

    Hi,

    I've installed the Backtrack 5 R2 Gnome 64 bit. Everything is working fine so far with one exception.

    I've tried to adjust the sound volume because it is too low by default and going Systems-> Preferences -> Sound I receive a popup with "Waiting for sound system to respond" message.

    I'm a patience man, at least I think I'm, but after 30 minutes of nothing new I begun to understand that definitely there's something wrong.

    I have sound like I said but how do I increase the volume though

    Please advice. Do I have a way to debug that and provide more details?

    Thanks!

    Go to System->Preferences -> Startup Applications

    Make sure you’re in the tab ‘Startup programs’

    -> Click on ‘Add’

    Name: Pulseaudio daemon
    Command:/usr/bin/pulseaudio
    Comment: Start the sound daemon

    Now logout, then login again

    *** it's mandatory that sound dosnt work on ubuntu 10.04 under root.

    @Ghostdog67 - Thanks for the quick reply. I've checked what you advice me. I already have the daemon started accordingly with the following picture:

    Meanwhile I've used alsamixer command to adjust the volume.

    @Osirium I have it installed in GNOME 32bit working just fine and the daemon was already running. I will try the 64bit but have to DL first. Are you running this as core, VM, or USB?

    Hi, I've installed it as core.

    just a polite suggestion,but perhaps you should edit your thread title to reflect that the issue has been [solved]; so other forum users may more easily find the thread in results if searching rather than simply creating new ones
