View Full Version : still no ice1712 support ?

February 26th, 2010, 02:09 AM
First let me say that I'm very impressed by the state of Lucid alpha3, as usually the devs have done a great job =D> and I can hardly wait to switch from Karmic to Lucid.

But... I still have problems with my M-Audio Audiophile 2496, and it seams to be related to the ice1712 chip.
I know that there might not be that many who use this card, and I also know that most are content with having to use OSS, remove Pulse or using similar hacks, but on a LTS? Shouldn't it just work by now?

See if there's any information you can add to bug #178442 (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/pulseaudio/+bug/178442), where you can also find a workaround.

I wish there was anything new I could add to this, but basically it have all been said.
post #52 (and #53) in the bug-report, have a fix that seams to work, I use another approach myself that works better for me (removing Pulse), but my point is that fixes and hacks just to get sound from a relatively standard sound chip?
Specially since this is a problem that have been around forever, there is a well documented bug-report and even several different solutions.

I know how to fix this on my own pc, and I have even been able to help others in the same unfortunate situation, but I feel sad for the ones who try Ubuntu for the first time and maybe are discouraged by not having sound.

I also have this card but have given up with it in linux. I have to keep a boot partition with windows to do audio creation :(
