soundcard detected no longer works
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:22 EST
Description of problem:
soundcard (snd-hda-intel) has always been correctly detecetd, and used to work
ok too, now (since roughtly FC5T2) it is still detected, but no longer plays
sounds. I realis this could be an ALSA bug feel free to re-assign if it doesn't
belong here ..
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name : system-config-soundcard
Arch : noarch
always in the past week or so
Steps to Reproduce:
2. play test sound
Motherbaord is intel D945GTPLR
Created attachment 123938 [details]
scsound log file
What about other sound applications (xmms, mplayer...) do they work?
rhythmbox won't play virgin's ogg streams, it used to on a previous install
the volume control applet doesn't "ding" when you drag the slider, the mixer
applet only shows "headphone", "capture" and "mux" devices, it used to show
"front" (and I think but I can't swear to it "rear") outputs too ...
Which version of alsa-lib and alsa-utils do you have?
Name : alsa-lib
Arch : i386
Name : alsa-utils
Arch : x86_64
Why do you have the i386 alsa-lib package? I think it should be x86_64, huh?
Well I have whatever yum gave me :-) but yum has been playing up a little
recently with duplicate versions, also I never know which packages are supposed
to have 32bit and/or 64bit arches installed in parallel
Anyhow, I just checked with yumex (rather than yum info which only listed first
match) and I have both the i386 and x86_64 of alsa-lib and only the x86_64 of
which corresponds with what I see in the x86_64 repo
Upgraded to 2.6.15-1.1907_FC5 (and rest of rawhide from today)
I now see the full compliment of sliders for this motherboard in
And ALSA is working again, not sure if it's been fixed, or just working agin of
it's own accord, didn't see any particular sound fixes ...
