#1 Can't use "Receive from dsp" with ARTS


I am using ALSA drivers to support my soundcard
hardware, and ARTS is my sound server. Has anyone had
any luck getting Hamfax to do the right thing when ARTS
is in charge of the sound hardware? I tried starting
hamfax with "soundwrapper hamfax," but I still can't
get it to sync up with the incoming fax audio, even
though the audio is plenty loud and clear.

    I had this same problem. It's nothing to do with ARTS, and seems to be a problem between hamfax and the ALSA OSS emulation.

    The sample rate is not being set correctly. hamfax needs 8000 samples/sec, my onboard Intel sound insisted on using 48000 when accessed via /dev/dsp

    I added native alsa support to hamfax - I'll try and get a patch uploaded in the near future.

    Just uploaded the ALSA patch under Patches...
