    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Well I've tried every solution the guide has to offer, and now not only do I not have sound but Ubuntu no longer recognises that I even have a sound card!

    I've done everything the guide says, every method, and I've now got LESS than what I started with.

    What now?

    In this state, I went into Synaptic, searched for 'alsa', and marked anything likely-looking for reinstallation. This doesn't do the full purge or remove gdm or ubuntu-desktop, but after doing this and rebooting I had my system recognizing my cards again.

    I still couldn't play sound, though. I've been through this whole thread in the past day and tried everything I could but no joy.

    Some people may find the following thread helpful, however:

    https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source...ils/+bug/67998

    After trying the suggestions there and rebooting again (why does that sound vaguely familiar...?) I again have sound in Ubuntu. Now that I've got sound running again after the upgrade from Dapper, and Beryl is humming along nicely, I just have to fix Gaim.


    Thanks for the in-depth thread! It really helps illustrate how sound services in Ubuntu are organized.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Hello !

    My integrated sound card isnt properly detected..it looks like this :

    00:0e.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Unknown device 81f6
    Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 5
    Memory at fe020000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>



    when it should look sort of like this :

    00:0e.1 Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio (rev a2)
    Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Unknown device 81f6
    Flags: bus master, 66MHz, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 58
    Memory at fe020000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
    Capabilities: [44] Power Management version 2
    Capabilities: [50] Message Signalled Interrupts: 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-
    Capabilities: [6c] HyperTransport: MSI Mapping

    or well ..atleast something similar ....

    Id like to change my IRQ from the sound to 10 ... instead of the current 5...think that would solve the issue..only problem is i dont know how ^ ^

    My MotherBoard is a M2N32 -SLI Deluxe ...please help !

    Thank you very much for your post. I had Dapper on my Lenovo laptop and I installed Debian Sarge. To my surprise I didn't get any sound in Sarge and got "sorry no mixer elements and/or device found" whenver I clicked on the gnome-volume-manager icon. I posted on the Debian forum but they are not as active as here, so I decided to try an Ubuntu solution......
    It worked
    Thanks again.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    On every game, movie or music the sound output is a little choppy
    This is my soundcard:
    Code:
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: ICH [Intel ICH], device 0: Intel ICH [Intel ICH]
      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    card 0: ICH [Intel ICH], device 2: Intel ICH - IEC958 [Intel ICH - IEC958]
      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    Strangly, there are two devices instead of one. Maybe that the soundcard is 7+1, I don't know exactly...
    Have you an idea how to fix the problem?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    My SPDIF output is not working at all. I have searched these forums, and nothing that I have found has worked for me.

    I have a EPoX 9NPA nForce4 based motherboard. I do have sound through the Line-out (lime green) jack, but the optical spdif is not working at all. I do have this computer hooked up to my home theater, so getting this to work is crucial.

    Here is the output from aplay -l:

    wesley@mediacenter:~$ aplay -l
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    card 0: CK804 [NVidia CK804], device 0: Intel ICH [NVidia CK804]
    Subdevices: 1/1
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    card 0: CK804 [NVidia CK804], device 2: Intel ICH - IEC958 [NVidia CK804 - IEC958]
    Subdevices: 1/1
    Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


    When I try speaker-test -c6, the program runs fine, and I get output through the line-out, but nothing through the optical out. I also tried: speaker-test -c6 -Dplug:surround51

    And this errors out:

    wesley@mediacenter:~$ speaker-test -c6 -Dplug:surround51

    speaker-test 1.0.11

    Playback device is plug:surround51
    Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 6 channels
    Using 16 octaves of pink noise
    Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
    Buffer size range from 3 to 5461
    Period size range from 3 to 5461
    Using max buffer size 5461
    Periods = 4
    was set period_size = 5461
    was set buffer_size = 5461
    buffer to small, could not use
    Unable to determine current swparams for playback: Input/output error
    Setting of swparams failed: Input/output error


    I have tried various different .asoundrc files, but none of them seemed to help.

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can get my spdif to work?

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Hi everyone.

    I am having some bizarre problems. I recently reinstalled Dapper from scratch, and all seems to work. However, I get an error when I start Amarok saying:

    xine was unable to initialize any audio drivers.

    I managed to fix it with a little tweaking of the main system settings (outside of Amarok), and then the sound stopped in America's Army...

    I have put everything back the way it was. I have recompiled ALSA, and tried just about every configuration I could think of, but it's still not working. I have even removed Amarok and Xine, and purged the configuration files.

    I have noticed that if I leave Amarok for a few minutes, all of a sudden, it does start working. I just can't explain why this is, as it all used to work brilliantly on the last install (although some tweaking was necessary).

    I am totally confused by this issue, and it's probably something obvious...


    Here are some of the settings from the System Sound Settings dialog:

    Selected Audio Device: Open Sound System (I tried ALSA previously, but I had no sound within America's Army (the game).
    Full Duplex: Enabled


    Now here are some settings from Amarok:

    Sound System: Xine Engine
    Output Plugin: alsa


    Hopefully these will help and there will be a stupendously obvious solution.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Daz.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    Two weeks without sound! Woohoo!

    Poopies. None of the fixes offered worked
    Thanks for everyone's help, though. The friendly fellow users is one of the major reasons I use Ubuntu.

    One more question:

    Is there any way I can just get rid of everything sound related and start again, without having to reinstall all of Edgy? I already had to reinstall once, and I don't look forward to once more re-downloading and re-installing every one of my codecs and apps and what-not...

    Please please please help. Listening to music is a major part of my computer-using experience, and I absolutely despise having to use Windows whenever I want to hear something other thean the hum of my tower.

    Re: Comprehensive Sound Problem Solutions Guide

    When I unmute the IEC958 1 in the alsamixer, I can hear static. Other than that, no sound at all. Everything in alsamixer is now unmuted, still not working fully.

    Anyone else with ens1371 having this problem?

    Your help would be appreciated.

    I can't even open alsamixer. I keep getting an error saying that the ctrl hasn't been found or some such.
