alsa patch for 2.6.16 based FC5 kernel (584.86 KB, patch)

Description Sammy 2006-02-24 17:01:54 UTC
On a system where all packages are updated to rawhide 2/24/2006 (udev fixed
from cvs to udev-084-5). This is a x86_64 system.

Booting with kernel-2.6.15-1.1977_FC5 results in no sound, rebooting with
kernel-2.6.15-1.1826.2.14_FC5 (FC5test2 recompiled with patch).
has perfectly functioning sound.

The hardware is hda_intel.

I have checked the loaded modules for both kernels, they are the same EXCEPT
in the column for how many modules are using snd_hda_intel I have 0 for the
new kernel an 3 for the old kernel, despite the fact that snd_hda_intel is
listed as being used. Any ideas?

The actual diff is:

< snd                   13
> snd                   9
< snd_hda_intel         3
> snd_hda_intel         0
< snd_pcm               4 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_pcm_oss
> snd_pcm               3 snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_pcm_oss
< snd_timer             3 snd_seq,snd_pcm
> snd_timer             2 snd_seq,snd_pcm

Comment 1 Sammy 2006-02-24 19:52:19 UTC
Some more experimentation:

modprobe -r snd_hda_intel
modprobe snd_hda_intel

Produces two messages:
kernel: azx_get_response timeout

Message from syslogd@compsci at Fri Feb 24 13:54:20 2006 ...
compsci kernel: general protection fault: 0000 [1] SMP

Comment 2 Sammy 2006-02-27 15:01:37 UTC
Issue seen by other people as well. It is just been discussed on the
Linux-Kernel List.

log file from sound card detection tool

This is the output of the sound card detection tool. 

kernel 2.6.15-1.2054_FC5

I can see rhythmbox playing my ogg files but there is no sound coming out of
the speakers nor headphones.

Comment 4 Sammy 2006-03-22 15:15:58 UTC
This is discussed in alsa bug #1843 as a regression for 2.6.16. After a long
process it is fixed in the latest alsa-kernel cvs. I just made a patch from
the cvs tree against 2.6.16 FC5 kernel and sound is working fine. This
changes the version to 1.0.11rc3 for alsa-kernel.

PS: The alsa bug talk about laptops but my problem was actually with a
    DELL desktop, so it works for all hda-intel problems. At least as
    far as hearing something!

Comment 5 Joe Orton 2006-04-05 13:33:55 UTC
Audio is silent here too; a new Dell Precision box, ICH7 chipset, STAC92xx
audio.  Added reference to the ALSA bug.

Comment 7 Joe Orton 2006-04-05 13:40:10 UTC
Updating summary, note this is broken in 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 still too.

alsa patch for 2.6.16 based FC5 kernel

Comment 9 Sammy 2006-04-12 13:39:48 UTC
To fix this for FC5 stable you need to apply the alsa kernel patch from
3/22/2006 since this is 2.6.16 based. I am attaching what I have been
using on 2.6.16-1.2080_FC5 recompiled with The 2.6.17 based
kernels would have this or a later version in already.

Comment 12 Alexei Podtelezhnikov 2006-05-22 18:24:50 UTC
FYI, it seems that FC4 with recently updated 2.6.16 kernels suffers from this 
bug as well. So I hope for official fix to be released for FC4 as well. 

Comment 13 Ville Ranki 2006-06-20 07:14:37 UTC
Anything new on this one? I think this should be quite
high priority for Redhat hackers as Dell officially supports
RHEL and current kernel/alsa still doen't work on new Dells.

Comment 14 Ville Ranki 2006-06-27 06:55:01 UTC
Works for me on kernel 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5smp

Comment 15 Sammy 2006-06-27 12:34:54 UTC
Ditto here since Alsa is updated to rc4 for 2.6.17. I am closing this bug.

Comment 16 Brian Millett 2006-06-27 13:54:35 UTC
Well, not so good for a dell D820.

I'm running 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5smp.

I get the following from dmegs:

snd_hda_intel: Unknown symbol snd_pcm_period_elapsed

[bpm]$ sudo rpm -V kernel-smp-2.6.17-1.2139_FC5

so the kernel is OK.

What I have in the modprobe.conf:
# ALSA portion
alias char-major-116 snd
alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-card-0 index=0 model=laptop-eapd
