    No sound after upgrade to Karmic Koala 9.10

    Hi,

    I used to have sound, but after upgrading to the new Karmic Koala it doesn't work any more.
    I googled it, and tried a few commands. The following shows something is wrong:
    Code:
    $> sudo aplay -l
    aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...
    Unfortunately I do not know how to fix it, or how to investigate further.
    Any suggestions?

    I've also included below some other commands that could help find the issue.

    Many thanks,
    Petru

    Re: No sound after upgrade to Karmic Koala 9.10

    I just wanted to say I'm experiencing the same thing. I also have an Intel HDA card:

    Code:
    lspci | grep -i audio
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)
    Code:
    cat /proc/asound/cards
     0 [Intel          ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
                          HDA Intel at 0xfdffc000 irq 16
    My module info:

    Code:
    snd_hda_intel         559028  2 
    snd_pcm_oss            52352  0 
    snd_mixer_oss          24960  3 snd_pcm_oss
    snd_pcm                99464  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm_oss
    snd_seq_dummy          11524  0 
    snd_seq_oss            41984  0 
    snd_seq_midi           15744  0 
    snd_rawmidi            33920  1 snd_seq_midi
    snd_seq_midi_event     16512  2 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi
    snd_seq                66272  6 snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi,snd_seq_midi_event
    snd_timer              34064  2 snd_pcm,snd_seq
    snd_seq_device         16276  5 snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq
    snd                    78920  9 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_seq_oss,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_seq_device
    soundcore              16800  3 snd
    snd_page_alloc         18704  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm

    And the output of the rest of the commands are identical to the original post.

    Audacious and mpg123 seem to be "working", eg. they seem to be playing the files without a problem (no error message), but no sound is being produced. This happens when I choose either ALSA or OSS as output plugins within audacious.

    It's as if the sound card is muted; but when I use gnome-alsamixer, no controls are showing up at all (as if ALSA no longer recognizes the sound card) so I get an empty dialogue. I tried other mixers (aumix, xmix) and nothing appears to be muted or at 0 volume level.

    I also can't get any sound after upgrade to karmic koala, with a similar card. My output from aplay is more hopeful, though, and restarting alsa-utils doesn't report any problems.

    Code:
    ccasin@EniacOnRails> sudo aplay -l
    **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
    Home directory /home/ccasin not ours.
    card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: AD198x Analog [AD198x Analog]
      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: AD198x Digital [AD198x Digital]
      Subdevices: 1/1
      Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
    I looked through the options in alsamixer, and everything seemed normal. Also the sound buttons on my lenovo T60 used to work to mute and adjust volume, but they seem to be having no effect now. Here is my output from the commands everyone else is listing:

    Code:
    ccasin@EniacOnRails> cat /proc/asound/cards

    OK, I was able to fix it by doing:

    Code:
    rm -rf ~/.pulse
    killall pulseaudio
    But I don't have the bad version of the problem where no soundcard shows up.

    Re: No sound after upgrade to Karmic Koala 9.10

    Firstly, I suggest moving your .pulse to a separate directory rather than removing it, in case that doesn't solve the problem:

    Code:
    mv ~/.pulse ~/.old-pulse
    And.. it didn't work for me.

    thuleni: do you have an Intel HDA card as well?

    This worked on my wife's laptop. What's really weird to me is that it was a clean installation, not an upgrade.

    Now I just need to resolve the multitude of issues on my own laptop, and the disappearing-mouse-cursor problem on my wife's laptop.

    Thanks for this!

    I want to emphasize I use the kernel version (2.6.28-16-generic) I had BEFORE the upgrade to KK.

    This is because with the new kernel (2.6.31-14-generic), even the sound WAS working, I had many applications failing, including 'wicd' and 'sensors':








    So I need to make the sound working in KK using 2.6.28-16-generic kernel.

    Thanks,
    Petru
