Hi,

I've installed the 64bit-version for my raspberry pi. So how can I hear sound through my waveshare wm8960 sound module. This soundcard is working on dietpi.

Code:
$ uname -a

Quote:
Linux localhost 4.19.120-v8+ #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat May 9 02:12:50 CEST 2020 aarch64 GNU/Linux


The onboard sound is working. then i installed the drivers for my waveshare wm8960 soundcard. I had to edit the install-script because it was written for the raspbian os. I got the drivers from https://www.waveshare.com/wiki/WM8960_Audio_HAT.

install.sh:
Code:
#!/bin/bash

if [[ $EUID -ne 0 ]]; then
   echo "This script must be run as root (use sudo)" 1>&2
   exit 1
fi

is_Raspberry=$(cat /proc/device-tree/model | awk  '{print $1}')
if [ "x${is_Raspberry}" != "xRaspberry" ] ; then
  echo "Sorry, this drivers only works on raspberry pi"
  exit 1
fi

ver="1.0"


# we create a dir with this version to ensure that 'dkms remove' won't delete
# the sources during kernel updates
marker="0.0.0"

#apt update
#apt-get -y install raspberrypi-kernel-headers raspberrypi-kernel
#apt-get -y install  dkms git i2c-tools libasound2-plugins

# locate currently installed kernels (may be different to running kernel if
# it's just been updated)
kernels=$(ls /lib/modules | sed "s/^/-k /")
uname_r=$(uname -r)

function install_module {
  src=$1
  mod=$2

  if [[ -d /var/lib/dkms/$mod/$ver/$marker ]]; then
    rmdir /var/lib/dkms/$mod/$ver/$marker
  fi

  if [[ -e /usr/src/$mod-$ver || -e /var/lib/dkms/$mod/$ver ]]; then
    dkms remove --force -m $mod -v $ver --all
    rm -rf /usr/src/$mod-$ver
  fi
  mkdir -p /usr/src/$mod-$ver
  cp -a $src/* /usr/src/$mod-$ver/
  dkms add -m $mod -v $ver
  dkms build $uname_r -m $mod -v $ver && dkms install --force $uname_r -m $mod -v $ver

  mkdir -p /var/lib/dkms/$mod/$ver/$marker
}

I had to copy the content of waveshares asound.conf to ~/.asoundrc so that alsamixer sets waveshare as my default card but it still doesn't work.

~/.asoundrc

Code:
pcm.!default {
        type hw
        card 1
}

ctl.!default {
        type hw           
        card 1
}

pcm.!default {
    type asym
    playback.pcm "playback"
    capture.pcm "capture"
}

pcm.playback {
    type plug
    slave.pcm "dmixed"
}

pcm.capture {
    type plug
    slave.pcm "array"
}

pcm.dmixed {
    type dmix
    slave.pcm "hw:wm8960soundcard"
    ipc_key 555555
}

pcm.array {
    type dsnoop
    slave {
        pcm "hw:wm8960soundcard"
        channels 2
    }
    ipc_key 666666
}

amxyz,

Welcome to Gentoo.

There may be some hints to problems in dmesg.

What does
Code:
cat /proc/asound/devices
tell?

I could get the waveshare card working on dietpi. But on gentoo only the compiling and loading of the module worked.

amxyz,

So far so good.

What does
Code:
alsamixer
show for your wm8960?
You may need to use
Code:
alsamixer -c1

alsamixer is no good tool for troubleshooting, you better look at amixer output. (Run 'amixer -h' to see all available options.) I'm also not sure what you need help with. Is your new soundcard not working or it is working but you need help making it default?

My problem is that I can't hear any sound at all if I plug my headphones or my speakers into my waveshare sound card. But onboard sound isworking. The waveshare soundcard works on dietpi, both headphones and speakers. The modules of this card are loaded by gentoo.

My problem is that I can't hear any sound at all if I plug my headphones or my speakers into my waveshare sound card.

Whatever player application you are using, did you make sure it is using your Waveshare as output?

So far I've installed mpv, sayonara player and vlc. But vlc doesn't work. In sayonara I can decide between pulseaudio and alsa. But sayonara only plays sound when I choose pulseaudio and then only when I use the onboard sound. I changed the default device in pulseaudio. But sayonara still doesn't play the sound. I can only see the equalizer. Why doesn't even run vlc on gentoo?[/quote]

Can I also install mplayer with emerge even if mplayer is only available for arm and not for arm64? Or do I have to download mplayer sources from the homepage and try to install it by myself? Can I just enter as accepted keywords "arm ~arm" in make.conf? I've got a raspi 4 and made 64bit available on gentoo.

All the switches there are set to off. Off means muted ...
That would be a problem.

If mplayer works on arm64, which it may or may not, then you should be able to use emerge to build it, after you override the safeties that stop you from trying an untested package. I suggest not using /etc/portage/make.conf for this, since you only want to override one package. Instead, use /etc/portage/package.accept_keywords.

amxyz,

mplayer builds an arm64. The Raspberry Pi3 optimised binary is in my binhost.
That means I've built it.

emerge will try to install anything you like if you keyword it. Even things that can't possibly work.

There is a brief guide to per package on the wiki.

On arm64, eix media-video/mplayer tells me
Code:
[I] media-video/mplayer

On 64bit Raspberry Pi, you will need a patched ffmpeg to use hardware decoding. I haven't got to that yet but Sakaki has.

Thank your for your help. Instead of mplayer I tried mpv. This is what mpv tels me if it searches for available soundcards:

Code:
mpv --audio-device=help


Code:
List of detected audio devices:
  'auto' (Autoselect device)
  'alsa' (Default (alsa))
  'alsa/upmix' (Plugin for channel upmix (4,6,8))
  'alsa/vdownmix' (Plugin for channel downmix (stereo) with a simple spacialization)
  'alsa/sysdefault:CARD=ALSA' (bcm2835 ALSA, bcm2835 ALSA/Default Audio Device)
  'alsa/usbstream:CARD=ALSA' (bcm2835 ALSA/USB Stream Output)
  'alsa/sysdefault:CARD=wm8960soundcard' (wm8960-soundcard, bcm2835-i2s-wm8960-hifi wm8960-hifi-0/Default Audio Device)
  'alsa/usbstream:CARD=wm8960soundcard' (wm8960-soundcard/USB Stream Output)


When I tell mpv to use onboard-sound then it works and displays the following message:

Code:
mpv --audio-device=alsa/plughw:0,0 Overboard.mp4


Code:
 (+) Video --vid=1 (*) (h264 720x400 25.000fps)
 (+) Audio --aid=1 --alang=eng (*) (aac 2ch 48000Hz)

Maybe my waveshare card is not working because I'm using a 64 bit kernel.

amxyz,

All the outputs in your waveshare sound card appear to be muted.

Open it in alsamixer, set the sliders and switches at the bottom of the sliders.

[MM] is Mute
[OO] is Open.

:D My waveshare soundcard finally works. So far I've adjusted the channels in alsamixer. But to solve this problem I used amixer instead. These steps were helpful for me:

1) Set the default device for pulseaudio
Code:
pacmd set-default-sink 1


2) List all the channels of my waveshare
Code:
amixer -c 1


3) unmute alle the channels that were off
Code:
amixer -c 1 sset 'Headphone',0 80%,80%

Code:
amixer -c 1 sset 'Noise Gate',0 unmute



Thank you all for your help.
