    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Yamaha DS-XG (YMF754)], what setting did you use to get it to work.
    From alsamixer I switched off / muted "IEC958 Loop" which did the trick Also "Mic Boost (+20dB)" needed to be muted / switched off in order to avoid noise. Other alsamixer settings could be kept unmuted. (Somehow I thought and remembered that it should have been some other settings muted / switched off - but maybe I had just forgotten...??)

    Question Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Thanks for the wonderful howto. I got successes all the way through - except the part where sound is supposed to come out of the speakers.

    I'm trying to use the hda-intel driver, as aplay -l gave "card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: HDA Generic [HDA Generic]" as my sound card. I've even tried using the drivers from the alsa project with no luck.

    I'm a bit stumped on where to go from here. Perhaps I've got the sound card wrong?

    EDIT:
    I've just noticed that there is quite a bit of discussion about this card on alsa-devel and it doesnt seem to have been resolved yet, so this is probably something that I'm going to have to wait for As a side note I'm using a Toshiba Satellite P100 and here is the bug report in alsa: https://bugtrack.alsa-project.org/al...ew.php?id=2106

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I did a quick read of the notes section on the link you gave me.

    Try this

    open up /etc/modprobe.conf with a text editor (nano/gedit/kate)

    paste in the following


    alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
    options snd-card-0 index=0
    options snd-hda-intel index=0 model=basic
    remove snd-hda-intel { /usr/sbin/alsactl store 0 >/dev/null 2>&1 || : ; }; /sbin/modprobe -r --ignore-remove snd-hda-intel

    then save.

    do a reboot. Then see what happens.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    I wasn't getting any sound out of my Sony Vaio PCG-4B1L

    I followed the instructions in this guide; I got as far as successfully installing/compiling the correct alsa-driver for my machine; I then as instructed went back to step 4, and in the terminal I typed "sudo modprobe snd-" followed by tab and enter.... And I still got the message back:
    FATAL: Module snd_ not found.
    just like I did before I did the compilation.

    Finally, I found the answer here:

    http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=153752&highlight=touchpad+sony.

    The crucial thing is to enable everything in alsamixer EXCEPT "external amplifier." (I had to turn off microphone too, to stop feedback).

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    It's really more like pressing TAB a few times. This way, you see the full list of modules beginning with prefix "snd-". You would problem get an error for just "snd-" because there is no module by that name.

    However, it is very interesting that just having "External Amplifier" disabled worked for you. I'll add that to my guide and give you credit for it.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Lord Raiden,

    Excellent post, but I have an odd problem. I am running amd64 on an ASUS a8n motherboard with a built in soundcard.

    lspci -v is the following:
    0000:00:04.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation CK804 AC'97 Audio Controller (rev a2)
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. K8N4-E Mainboard
    Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 225
    I/O ports at dc00 [size=256]
    I/O ports at e000 [size=256]
    Memory at d5003000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
    Capabilities: <available only to root>

    OK, I have surround sound speakers and only three of the six speakers work. (Left, Right,
    Subwoofer). The other speakers don't work (Left rear, Right rear, Center speaker). They are not muted and I ran:

    speaker-test -c6 -Dplug:surround51

    and got white noise out of four of my speakers (Left, Right, Left Rear, Right Rear) and two didn't work (Subwoofer, and Center speaker).

    The three speakers playback fine for both audio, video, mp3 anything. I guess I am a little greedy on wanting the others to work.

    Any suggestions?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Thanks for this Lord Raiden, guys like you take alot of frustration out of setting up things like this in Linux

    My problem is the sharing of the soundcard! Why is it that some programs can share the card and others can't? for example if I'm playing an mp3 on xmms, Gaim's sounds still come through OK but if i run say xmame, no sound! and vice versa also (sound xmame,no sound xmms!!) Is there no way aound this other than alsa-oss? I always thought ALSA was supposed to address this issue..

    Im on amd64-64bit Ubuntu BTW

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Slurm - Not greedy at all. Hmm.. you have checked alsamixer for the channel settings I suppose. Maybe a 5.1 setting? Also, remember to get any music player application to actually use 5.1. For example, I use amarok, and I can select my speaker set up from a dropdown box. I'll have to look into 5.1 or my guide (natural progression lol - getting soundcard to work --> getting 5.1 to work)


    Number6 - make sure xmame is using alsa (if it can). ALSA lets applications share the soundcard whereas OSS does not. alsa-oss does address the issue the alsa way since alsa-oss is an alsa project. It is fine to use alsa-oss to get xmame to work (very little overhead if any).

    Thanks for taking the time to look over that. Unfortunately I still dont hear any sound. It might be woth mentioning that under the playback section in alsamixer I now only see a PCM bar and nothing else, whereas I used to have a master bar as well.

    (I may have that name wrong, but there was definitely another one)

    Is there any more diagnosis that I can do to nail down the problem?
