00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)


Recommended Posts

Ok.

So yes, there are a few threads out there about sound failures in Fedora Core 5 etc.

But I do not believe they are directly the same problem I am having here.

 

Upon "SoundCard Detection" it says it is playing a sound, but I do not hear it.

It seems to have all the right info on the card, but to what end if no sound comes out?

If I say No I did not hear a sound, I recieve the following error.

Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. Audio will not be available on the system.

You can inspect /root/scsound.log and file a new bug

at http://bugzilla.redhat.com.

 

Please click OK to continue.

 

that particular file says the following.

(see Figure: scsound.log)

 

Now the funny thing is, I tried using alsamixer, but to no result.

All the channels are at about 50%+ and none of them Muted.

To extent, the following commands, also do nothing to help me.

 

[kcraig@shieko sbin]$ alsaunmute 0 -v

Card 0 Driver snd_hda_intel Volume 75%...

Unmuting ...

Play. Switch master(0) to 1

Play. Volume master(0) to 23

Play. Switch master(1) to 1

Play. Volume master(1) to 23

Play. Volume pcm(0) to 191

Play. Volume pcm(1) to 191

Unmuting snd_hda_intel...

[kcraig@shieko sbin]$

and....

[kcraig@shieko sbin]$ ./alsactl power 0

Power state for card #0 is D0

Which DO to my knowledge means online, no power state.

And I know this works under windows XP.

 

HOWEVER, using the alsactl power command, I noticed something.

The command alsactl power on should result in a power change, but instead, I get this.

[kcraig@shieko sbin]$ ./alsactl power on

./alsactl: set_power:117: snd_ctl_set_power_state error: Protocol not available

 

*sigh.

Can anyone throw me a bone here?

I mean, I could swear that at one point while running Windows XP and throwing in KNOPPIX DVD, that the volume worked.

BUT, if I had the volume at say 10% on windows, then booted knoppix, it would stay at 10% no matter what, mute or not.

And I can swear, don't hold me to it, that I once had FC4 installed on this laptop when the sound didnt work, I then installed Windows, turned my sound to abotu 50% and then booted linux and it worked at 50% only.

 

Unfortunately, I cannot load windows back onto this laptop, as

a. no room

b. irreplaceable time and effort into customization.

 

Hopefully someone here understands me or had this porblem.

any Ideas?

KellyCraig,

 

I have exactly the same problem. I'm now using fedora core 5 on laptop ASUS M9V, which is equipped with sound card as yours. Since your post is May 17, I don't know if you have already solved this problem or not. But, if you did solve it, could you please tell me how you did that? ^^ Thanks in advance

if it says it's playign then it is very unlike;y to be a hardware problem.

 

the most common problem is usually configurations. aka. the sound is actually turned down.

 

you might wanna invoke a sound mixer or if you have alsa(-utils) installed...

 

you could try my method, i put this in my boto script.

 

you might find this at /etc/rc.local or /etc/rc.d/something.local but i'm sure it iwll work from anyone of teh scripts in teh rc.d folder....

 

 

or you can simply run it as a normal script..

 

the code below is what i use at boot

################################

####set volume to 99 percent####

amixer set Master 99 unmute >/dev/null 2>&1

####set the pcm/wav/noise value to 25### seems ok... you can lower or increase these as you wish... #####

amixer set PCM 25 unmute >/dev/null 2>&1

alsactl store >/dev/null 2>&1

####################################

 

 

as i said this is teh most common failt..as people tend to forget, or not know that teh sound is zeroed by default.. another place to check is also teh bios settigns to make sure teh card output isn't disbled there.. it's a long shot but hope it help...

:-)

make sure to open alsamixer in a console

 

and scroll left and right (you may have to scroll very far rights depening on the sound card) and verify that all options are unmuted.

 

to UNmute an audio output, press M once. Press it again to MUTE.

 

try this to see does it solve your problem (while playing some music so you know it makes a difference while pressing M)

 

cheers

Tried it, but it still doesn't work. I don't get any error messages or anything, it just doesn't play. The strange thing is that I cant scroll for some reason, its always on PCM. And Kaffeine always shows the sound as muted regardless of the state of the system speaker or alsamixer.

No fix for this? I've been googling like crazy and seeing lots of people having issues like this but no one ever posts the fix. I'm having a similar issue in Ubuntu 9.04, reloading the Ubuntu desktop packages fixed it briefly and then an update killed it. I'm alternating between the mixer saying the Pulseaudio Output Null and actually having the driver loaded w/ still no sound when stuff is playing.

I'm installing 9.10 Beta to see if maybe it'll help. Anyone else have any suggestions? I'm a total Linux noob and this is frustrating me enough to reload XP as much as I don't want to.
