    Unhappy Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Help!

    I was following this guide, but the result is still no sound AND now also a messed-up GNOME. Problems with Login Screen and sudo nautilus.

    I run Hardy with kernel 2.6.24-16-generic, and GNOME 2.22.2. There was no sound after installing the 2.6.24-16-generic kernel (as per https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...9/comments/173 -- I had been trying to fix Suspend/Hibernate problems but htat's another story). Here is the part of the sound guide (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...47&postcount=1) that caused the problem:
    (1) Remove these packages

    Code:
    Code:
        sudo apt-get --purge remove linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils
    (2) Reinstall those same packages
    Code:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux-sound-base alsa-base alsa-utils 
     
    [list][*]
    VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: Ubuntu (GNOME) users have reported that packages 'gdm' and 'ubuntu-desktop' are removed after removing the linux-sound-base packages.

    [My comment: Why does removing the sound driver remove the GUI for the operating system? Why not fix it ASAP to prevent the sort of thing that I describe below? --User 101.
    Continuing on with the quote from the sound guide:]
    If this happens, then do the following
    Code:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install gdm ubuntu-desktop
    (3) Reboot
    I did all this, but after the reboot, there was no more Face Browser with user names, you had to enter the user name manually.

    I tried to fix this, but unfortunately, System > Administration > Login Window > [Admin. Password] > program flickers on briefly and crashes (just vanishes without trace from the screen). Running sudo gdmsetup from Terminal causes the same result, with the message "Segmentation fault" in Terminal. I had to figure out how to

    Code:
    sugo gedit /etc/gdm/gdm.conf
    manually to restore a Login Face Browser by removing

    Code:
    GraphicalTheme=Human
    and instead typing

    Code:
    GraphicalTheme=happygnome-list
    In addition, if I want to browse file system as root, I try

    Code:
    sudo nautilus
    but I get:
    Code:
    seahorse nautilus module initialized
    Initializing nautilus-share extension
    Segmentation fault
    None of this was a problem before I tried to work through the sound guide.

    I'm just a home user who was hoping for a stable and secure alternative to Windows. I appreciate that this is a free operating system, and many of the people here and on Launchpad are volunteers who are trying very hard to help. Having said this, I feel like I'm getting deeper and deeper into trouble: first just trying to fix Suspend/Hibernate broke the Sound. Trying to fix Sound then broke the Login and sudo nautilus (with the sound still broken).

    Is there a quick and simple solution to my sound and Login problems that would not break something else?

    --Or should I just reinstall Hardy?

    --Or maybe go back to Gutsy, where I had many fewer problems?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    After a few reboots, the problems with Login Screen control panel and sudo nautilus seem to be gone. This was still a lot more drastic a problem than you should get by simply removing and reinstalling a sound driver, IMHO.

    Just in case there is no official bug report for this issue yet, I have filed one: see Bug #242033 at https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...pt/+bug/242033

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I have a problem with sharing sound. I can't run Banshee and play music while Firefox is open... or vice-versa.

    what is up with that??? I haven't had that sort of problem since the days of Windows 95.

    STAC 9758,59 AC97 Sigmatel C-Major

    The closest I find on the Alsa Project Matrix is ICH southbridge AC97 audio but it doesn't say which driver to use.

    In any case this is 5.1 surround sound on an old Gateway MediaPC. The sound is onboard. As this is a MediaPC I'd be really happy if someone could help me to get the sound working.

    I've followed all of the steps and nothing is muted. I however can not locate the correct driver. (I tried intel8x0m and intel8x0)

    Code:
    00:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) SMBus Controller (rev 02)
    	Subsystem: Gateway 2000 Unknown device 3005
    	Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 9
    	I/O ports at 0500 [size=32]
    
    00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
    	Subsystem: Gateway 2000 Unknown device 3005
    	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22
    	I/O ports at d800 [size=256]
    	I/O ports at dc00 [size=64]
    	Memory at fa001000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]
    	Memory at fa002000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=256]
    	Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2

    Re: STAC 9758,59 AC97 Sigmatel C-Major

    The correct driver for ICH5 is intel8x0.
    Module snd-intel8x0
    -------------------

    Module for AC'97 motherboards from Intel and compatibles.
    * Intel i810/810E, i815, i820, i830, i84x, MX440
    ICH5, ICH6, ICH7, ESB2
    * SiS 7012 (SiS 735)
    * NVidia NForce, NForce2, NForce3, MCP04, CK804
    CK8, CK8S, MCP501
    * AMD AMD768, AMD8111
    * ALi m5455
    One odd thing I see is that it says "latency 0". A good value for PCI bus devices would be 64. Look in the BIOS to see if there is a setting for this.

    You can try the attached script to build the latest version of ALSA from source.

    You can also try OSS4 (link in sig).

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Hi,

    I installed Kubuntu yesterday and I'm still trying to get sound to work. I've got a Creative Labs X-Fi XstremeMusic card which I found the beta driver for at the Creative Labs site. When I go to install it, it's unsuccessful. This looks like the pertinent part

    Code:
    checking for gcc... gcc
    checking for C compiler default output file name... a.out
    checking whether the C compiler works... yes
    checking whether we are cross compiling... no
    checking for suffix of executables...
    checking for suffix of object files... o
    checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
    checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
    checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
    checking for ranlib... ranlib
    checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
    checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
    checking for egrep... grep -E
    checking for ANSI C header files... yes
    checking for an ANSI C-conforming const... yes
    checking for inline... inline
    checking whether time.h and sys/time.h may both be included... yes
    checking whether gcc needs -traditional... no
    checking for current directory... /opt/Creative/XFiDrv_Linux_US-1.18/drivers
    checking cross compile...
    checking for directory with kernel source... /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/build
    checking for directory with kernel build...
    checking for directory with ALSA include files... /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/build/include
    checking for kernel linux/version.h... yes
    checking for kernel linux/autoconf.h... yes
    checking for kernel version... 2.6.24-19-generic
    checking for GCC version... Kernel compiler:  Used compiler: gcc (GCC) 4.2.3 (Ubuntu 4.2.3-2ubuntu7)
    
    *** NO PREDEFINED KERNEL COMPILER IS DETECTED
    *** Assuming the same compiler is used with the current system compiler.
    
    *** Please make sure that the same compiler version was used for building kernel.
    As this is my second day with any kind of Linux this all went over my head. Any help is appreciated but please be very explicit with any instructions or codes as I have little to no idea what I'm doing.

    Thanks!

    This guide needs updated!
    There is no drop-down list at http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-doc/
    How to find the driver?
