Alsamixer [solved}

Thu Sep 05, 2019 1:54 am

Is it just me, or is alsamixer gone with the wind? a cli "alsamixer" gets "cannot open mixer: Invalid argument." Alsa-utils is installed, 1.1.8.2. " Amixer" gets the same response: "...Invalid argument". I am missing the secret.

That got a big respose...zip!

Just as well, I have solved it myself in the mean time. Alsamixer needs a "sound card" to load properly and I was trying to bring it up with an MHS3.5 tft display in place....they seem to fight and the tft wins...alsamixer will not load if a sound card cannot be detected. I will need to get an HDMI based tft that doesn't depend on its GPIO connections.
