Hello,

I have this bizarre problem with audio. Basically, whenever I am supposed to hear something, I can only hear this clicking noise, kinda like my speakers are popping. I know that the speakers and the board are good because I dual boot with (shudder) windows and everything works fine there. I've followed part of this guide (it's the stickied one)

Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide v0.5e

Here are the results from aplay -l and lspci -v (I took all the irrelavent stuff of the lspci)

aplay -l

Also, I tried

sudo modprobe snd-hda-intel
with no results...

If anyone has any advice, I'd appreciate it.

Update:

It will work when I specify to use OSS. So my ALSA is messed up somehow. However, I reinstalled ALSA and nothing changed. Does anyone have any ideas??

If you are using Itrepid 32bit you could try this in terminal Its a bit smash and grab but it seems to work on the whole


sudo wget http://www.medibuntu.org/sources.list.d/intrepid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/medibuntu.list

wget -q http://packages.medibuntu.org/medibuntu-key.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add - && sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get remove gnash gnash-common libflashsupport mozilla-plugin-gnash swfdec-mozilla && sudo apt-get install alsa-oss faac faad flashplugin-nonfree gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad gstreamer0.10-plugins-bad-multiverse gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly-multiverse gstreamer0.10-pitfdll libavcodec-unstripped-51 libmp3lame0 non-free-codecs sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin unrar

Installs Media Support;)

That didn't do it. I still have the problem. Thanks for the effort though.

Well I had something like this before and ended up reinstalling It was a pain But if you've backed up it won't be a problem
Hope it doesn't come to that!!

Can anyone else try to help me?

I'm really not sure how to approach this and I really don't want to reinstall.

update2:

pulseaudio also does not work. It makes the same noise. I have reinstalled ALSA but not both ALSA and Pulse Audio... maybe that will do something.

edit: that did not work

I'm having almost the same problem on 9.04. I do hear the sound but it's accompanied by irritating clicks also on alsa and pulseaudio. No solution found yet.
