Audio Testing on the XO

This page contains the results of testing audio on the XO.

Current Status

  • Audio out works only through the headphones [466038]

Audio under OLPC's latest build

  • The OLPC build doesn't include pulseaudio, but they are using ALSA under 2.5.25.
  • They use the following udev rules:
  • /etc/udev/rules.d/40-alsa.rules
# do not edit this file, it will be overwritten on update

KERNEL=="controlC[0-9]*",	NAME="snd/%k"
KERNEL=="hwC[D0-9]*",		NAME="snd/%k"
KERNEL=="pcmC[D0-9cp]*",	NAME="snd/%k"
KERNEL=="midiC[D0-9]*",		NAME="snd/%k"
KERNEL=="timer",		NAME="snd/%k"
KERNEL=="seq",			NAME="snd/%k"
KERNEL=="mixer0",		SYMLINK+="mixer"
KERNEL=="dsp0",			SYMLINK+="dsp"
KERNEL=="audio0",		SYMLINK+="audio"
  • /etc/udev/rules.d/90-alsa.rules
SUBSYSTEM=="sound", KERNEL=="controlC*", RUN+="/sbin/salsa"
SUBSYSTEM=="sound", KERNEL=="pcm*", RUN+="/sbin/salsa"

Audio under Fedora 10 Snapshot 2

  • We use the following udev rules:
  • /etc/udev/rules.d/90-alsa.rules
ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="sound", KERNEL=="controlC*", \
  RUN+="/sbin/alsactl -E ALSA_CONFIG_PATH=/etc/alsa/alsactl.conf --initfile=/lib/alsa/init/00main restore /dev/$name"
ACTION=="remove", SUBSYSTEM=="sound", KERNEL=="controlC*", \
  RUN+="/sbin/alsactl -E ALSA_CONFIG_PATH=/etc/alsa/alsactl.conf store /dev/$name"
