View Full Version : [kubuntu] Audiophile 2496, Drivers loaded but no card detected

Hi, I've read over some other posts regarding m-audio audiophile 2496, but none that I have seen are quite the same problem. This card use to work on my 9.04 system but I recently built a new computer and installed 10.10. It also works in Windows7 so I know the card is functional.

I am running ubuntu 10.10 upgraded to kubuntu 10.10 with the kde 4.6 backports. I am also running 2.6.36-020636-generic on an intel x86_64 system.

I have disabled the onboard sound card through bios (i think, the bios sort of sucks). I've added
blacklist snd_hda_intel
to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf since that seemed to be the driver for the other card.

Below is the output of several commands:

> lsmod | grep snd

I think that nVidia Corporation is part of the onboard device.

> cat /proc/asound/cards

No ICE1712 cards found

So it looks like the system somewhat knows that I have an Audiophile 2496 but not quite.

For kicks, i've added:
options snd-ice1712 model=audiophile index=0

to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf, but it did nothing noticeable.

I've also added:

slave.format S32_LE
slave.channels 10to /usr/share/alsa/cards/ICE1712.conf in the iCE1712.pcm.front.0 section as mentioned some place else. This also had no noticeable effect.

lastly,

./alsa-info.sh --stdout

!!ALSA/HDA dmesg
!!------------------My next step is to try to get the "Audio device: nVidia Corporation GF104 High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)" to not show up when doing "lspci -v | grep -i audio". The other onboard sound card use to show up there but stopped after disabling in bios and blacklisting it (did them simultaneously so I don't know which did it). So perhaps that will help.

Failing that, does anyone have any ideas?

Many thanks

[Edit: "Audio device: nVidia Corporation GF104 High Definition Audio Controller (rev a1)" seems to be part of the HDMI input on the video card. I don't think I'll mess with that at the moment."]
