My little disappointed about Kuliax 6.0 : My sound card (Realtek) hasn’t detected by Kuliax 6. A famous Linux distro can detect my sound card, but Kuliax didn’t detect it. I hope it only happened on my PC. Kuliax has detected my sound card (Realtek), but it has muted the sound by default. You should unmute the sound if you want to enable the sound (please refer the comments bellow).

Conclusion :

Kuliax 6.0 is a good choice for you if you want to use a Linux distro that focuses to education (especially IT).

    your sound card maybe detected by Kuliax 6.0, but AFAIK you must change the volume, PCM bar, and friends with KMixer. by “default” Kuliax 6.0 has muted the sound🙂

    I knew Kuliax has muted the sound by default, I checked the volume, PCM bar, and KMixer (also I tried to play music files) but still no sound on Kuliax. So I thought “maybe Kuliax hasn’t detected my sound card”.

    hmm what sound card do you have?

  4. 4 Yusuf KS October 9, 2007 at 9:50 am

    My sound card is Realtek AC97 (Linux may detect it as SiS SI7012).

    I tried Kuliax 6.0 again, because I was curious about it. Here’s the result :

    – I run KMix, then unmuted the sound : the sound wasn’t out *just like I did long time ago*.
    – I maximized all volume on the KMixer : the sound wasn’t out *just like I did long time ago*.
    – I selected master channel, chose master/master mono/ PC Speaker/ect : the sound wasn’t out.
    – I selected master channel, chose PCM : [Finally] the sound was out (It’s kinda weird, but it was working afterall).

    Thanks for the suggestion, it triggered me to try Kuliax again. I will edit my Kuliax preview article and add some snapshot there. Who are you by the way? Are you a Kuliax developer or kuliax user? Maybe we can discuss about Linux, especially kuliax🙂 Kuliax is one of my linux distros favorite.
