Etertics radio distro NO SOUND... help!

Hello... New to devuan i use Artix and Void Linux. I use an e radio to stream my show and butt is my choice. I use an xlr mic and external usb soundcard. All distros from Mint to Void recognise this sound card. Etetics based on Devuan no. It has alsa and pulseaudio but none of themn works. Basically i have no microphone and no sound. All settings are the usual used on my other 3 distros. Is there a special configuration i have to do, so the usb sound card works ?
What should i check ?

p.s Mind you i was on live usb stick when i was trying this.

Re: Etertics radio distro NO SOUND... help!

Lets see what your audio device is. let us know the output of below command from a terminal.

lspci -knn | grep "Audio"

also try contacting etertics.

The grep needs to be expanded to show the kernel driver:

lspci -knn | grep -A2 "Audio"

@OP: have you read the beowulf release notes? If you have multiple sound cards then PulseAudio might need to be autostarted.

Use pgrep pulse to check if it's running and use aplay -l to list all available audio devices.

I missed this bit. A USB card won't show up in lspci, use lsusb instead.

You can open a terminal and run this command:

udevadm monitor

Then plug the USB card in and see what the kernel & udev do with the device.

Which kernel versions are Mint & Void using? The stock kernel in Devuan beowulf might be too old to support the devices.

Hmm, I wonder  if a  blob is required...
Although it seems unlikely unless its very new technology that is implementing drm to an insane level...

EDIT: but yeah,  I tried etertics once, its not nearly as good as I would have hoped...

Unless they improved since... last time I checked, somethings weren't changed that should have been...

Ive seen live cause issues before on distros. especial systemd and pulseaudio.

you can mess with "alsamixer" -c0 and all your pulseaudio settings / alsa settings.

good luck.

Re: Etertics radio distro NO SOUND... help!

I would try a

apt install --reinstall pulseaudio pavucontrol

Then open pavucontrol check if sound is muted usually it is and check witch card is on the output and what on input ,
Good luck
