    Hopefully this will only post once. Not sure what happened earlier. Anyway, I think what needs to happen is this to discover what is "really" in there:
    Code:
     
    modinfo soundcore

    pneaveill, I'm not sure who your post was directed at, but if at me, this is what I got:
    Code:
    $ modinfo soundcore

    As I am learning with this thing (yes, I am a noob also) that what your modinfo did was to state which kernel and such you have. What it also did was stated that there is a device tied to the kernel. THe good news is that you probably won't have to recompile the kernel. Meanwhile, a quick look at the pdf of your mobo docs reveals:
    Code:

    I'm not sure if this is helpful, because right now, my sound is working. Is it possible that one of my sound modules is being unloaded if my machine sits idle for an extended period of time? The next time the sound goes out I will do lsmod again and see if anything is missing.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Hello,

    I followed the instructions using drivers from the alsa-project (tried both 12rc2 and 12rc3).

    I do the ./configure ... and it appears to run fine. I then issue the make command and it appears to run fine for a while, but I get this error:

    ...
    make[3]: Entering directory `/usr/src/alsa-driver-1.0.12rc2/pcmcia/pdaudiocf'

    FYI, I am running ubuntu 6.06.1 on a sager 9860 laptop which has Realtek HD Audio. It looks like the hardware is being recognized okay:

    Any ideas?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Well, here's a little thank you for helping me out.

    Got a ac '97 chip and a m-audio delta 1010 lt. The latter has never been working with ubuntu.
    The whole m-audio thing with linux is a story on it's own I guess...

    Got it working by editing the alsa.base file, and unmuting all the channels ( there's a lot of them..).
    Further on I managed to make the delta my first soundcard as described.

    Some issues: I lost all my system sounds, not being able getting them back yet = no problem.
    The delta and alsa don't work with mplayer, am using oss instead ( but still with the delta instead of the realtek chip ). Totem and vlc do work though...

    At least I've got some better sound now, and am pretty happy!

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Not sure how helpful this will be, but mine is doing very similar (misery loves company -- lol). Some basic system sounds work (ie, I can hear noise), but the music programs (too many to mention) are not working at all.

    Help!!
