Description of problem:
I was able to get sound working great on my HP zd7000 with RHEL3 by
using ALSA with snd_intel8x0. I did a new install of RHEL4 which
detected the same ALSA driver but no more sound.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.Try to play a CD or MP3
Actual Results: No sound
I forgot to mention I build the alsa-driver-1.0.6a following step on
the intel8x0 page and got some very choppy sound working.
Yes, there are lots of problems with alsa-1.0.6 and intel8x0 driver.
You can try update drivers/lib to 1.0.8.
I've the same problem on my Dell Desktop (DXFDN51) - RHEL AS v4. This is my
Audio device description (from RHN):
Intel Corp. 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller, PCI,
The same problem repreduces on Fedora Core 3!
My sound card is working fine now,
- I've installed alsa lib & util 1.0.8 from www.alsa-project.com.
- Then, executed alsaconf. (This step is required, otherwise it will NOT work)
- Tried the SoundDetection/Test => Works fine!
Hopefully this will help others!
Mike, any news on this issue? Have you tried a new alsa driver?
Sound is working now after installing ALSA 1.0.8 driver,lib, and
utils and running alsaconf. Thanks.
If we want to fix this bug, we need to update the drivers in kernel...
Wholesale ALSA updates have been deemed too risky to support in a RHEL update.
I'm going to have to close this as WONTFIX, and recommend that those
experiencing this issue update ALSA on their own...I'm sorry...
