Play audio via pc speaker

Postby silver007 » 2018-03-11 22:28

When I had Mint installed (17.x) everything played through my pc speaker as I have no external speakers on this pc. It worked great because I simply wired up a 'real' speaker to the pc speaker feed. It has a decent amount of power actually.

This does not work with Stretch. The closest I've gotten is very faint audio with crackling after loading snd-pcsp and maxing all volumes. When I select this pcsp module in alsamixer, it lists a Master volume and a Beep volume. The Beep volume will not move. It's stuck on 00. Maybe that's the problem?

How can I get Debian/alsa/pulse/whatever to send all audio to the pc speaker correctly?

It's an old ibm thinkcentre desktop.

Never heard of using the pc speaker but I don't see why not. With Stretch you need to look at Pulse Audio Volume Control which handles much of what used to be set in Alsa Mixer.

Edit: Our posts overlapped. I see you got it running. You can ignore what I said.
