    Re: Sound card won't install intel 82801DB-ICH4

    I've made the bug report:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/254975

    I'm building the kernel from the git repos, see if the issue has already been solved somewhere. If not I'll make an attempt to track down what exactly is causing it.

    Re: Sound card won't install intel 82801DB-ICH4

    Argh. Nothing.

    Since modprobe hangs, I thought I'd try to insmod it manually:
    Code:
    naxxtor@jackson:~$ sudo insmod /lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.ko 
    insmod: error inserting '/lib/modules/2.6.24-19-generic/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.ko': -1 Unknown symbol in module
    This may well be telling. Bearing in mind this is compiled from the alsa-sources package, and now not the binary that shipped with Hardy.

    And some dmesg output from the attempted insmod:

    Oooh .... I wonder what this means. Now, checking syslog:
    Code:

    Errr, what? What is NetworkManager doing with the sound device? Hmmm..... something fishy is going on.

    Re: Sound card won't install intel 82801DB-ICH4

    OK, that's way above my level of understanding! Do you think it's a problem with modprobe on the x31 then? I'd always assumed that the problem was further up, and that modprobe was just hanging because there was something wrong earlier in the chain. I think your bug report is exactly what I'm getting though, so hopefully someone will crack it.

    Okay, well, bascically, it's a problem with snd-intel8x0. modprobe is just struggling because it can't insert the module properly. The version of snd-intel8x0 is incompatible with the rest of the snd-* modules, for some strange reason - and compiling alsa from scratch doesn't help - which is even more bemusing.

    Interestingly, modprobe also hangs on boot for about a minute. Possibly another module that's broken!

    But yeah, it's a problem with snd-intel8x0, not modprobe.

    Re: Sound card won't install intel 82801DB-ICH4

    Right, I'm getting closer to cracking this.

    I managed to get sound working in the previous kernel version 2.6.24.18-386, by using the alsa-project sources and adding a line to the following file:
    /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base
    Code:
    options snd-snd-intel8x0 buggy_semaphore=1
    I've yet to get it working with 2.6.24-19-generic though.

    (i've just noticed there was a typo in that file, so I'm not sure any more >_<)

    Re: Sound card won't install intel 82801DB-ICH4

    I have been struggling along without sound on my Thinkpad T30 for several months. The past couple of days I have said "Okay, let's get serious and fix this.

    I use Zenwalk 7. Okay, okay let me do this right.

    Zenwalk 7
    Thinkpad T30
    I32801CA-ICH3

    I have been trying to determine if it's the OS, Notebook, or the card.

    Your's is some of the most intelligent discussion of this sound problem I have seen beyond the simple, first step things.

    So I have included my output from cat/proc/interrupts.

    CAL: 0 Function call interrupts
    TLB: 0 TLB shootdowns
    ERR: 0
    MIS: 0
    root[asound]#

    As you can see my last two items are ERR: and MIS:.

    If that means anything I don't know.

    Anyway good discussion. At least I feel I can put my mind to ease for the night and stop fighting this sound issue.

    I hate to migrate away from Zenwalk. I've used it for years off and on.
