I've got FreeBSD 10.3 (PowerPC) installed on eMac P69.
I'm using MPlayer to test loudness. I already use
-af volume=10:1-like options but they tend to distort sound pretty quickly + it is not really a solution.
From what I read online I should be able to change volume using
systcl hw.snd.vpc_0db or
systcl hw.snd.vpc_0d=45is too quiet
systcl hw.snd.vpc_0d=10is quite ok but still it could/should go louder
systcl hw.snd.vpc_0d=1is distorted and really not that louder than
mixer: /dev/mixer: No such file or directory
From what I remember when this machine still had Mac OS X its speakers were way louder comparing to what I get on FreeBSD.
- Why is
- Is there any other way to increase speaker volume?
They might come in handy:
kldload snd_hdabut it didn't help.
kldload snd_driverresults in
kldload: can't load snd_driver: No such file or directory
Also, there are interesting messages in the system message buffer displayed with
link_elf: symbol isa_dma_release undefined
KLD snd_driver.ko: depends on snd_sb8 - not available or version mismatch
