One thing I failed to mention.  When the system boots, the sound system works. 
I get the system sounds, play music, etc.  The volume is always reset to muted
and the errors are reported during shutdown.
Comment 2 Larry Johnson 2006-11-11 17:10:07 EST
Sorry for the extra posts, maybe I will get all of the information needed here.
 The sound card detected was as follows:

   Vendor: nVidia Corportation
   Model:  MCP55 High Definition Audio
   Module: snd-hda-intel

I believe this is detection is proper.  It is integrated with my motherboard.  I
do have a second sound card installed, a Creative Labs Sound Blaster X-Fi;
however, I have not selected it as my primary sound card since there are
currently no drivers for this card (as I understand it).

Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2006-11-12 06:07:09 EST
Right, Sound Blaster X-Fi isn't supported yet.
Could you please attach /root/scsconfig.log?

Comment 6 Larry Johnson 2006-11-12 12:30:10 EST
I have attached the scsconfig log as requested.  I have also attahced the
scsrun.log as it shows the error that I am receiving from amixer if I try to run
it: "amixer: Mixer default load error: Invalid argument".

Thanks for you quick response.  Let me know if you need anything else.

I have the same error message on system shutdown.
This is on a Dell Dimension E520 with an integrated
Intel soundchip: 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
using the 'snd-hda-intel' driver.

I see this with both the kernels:
Comment 8 Jef Spaleta 2007-01-04 01:27:21 EST

current development kernel fixes my issue with snd-hda-intel.
alsactl, amixer and alsamixer now work for me without issue.

System is a Dell  E521 Desktop currently running 32bit fedora.
with lspci reporting
Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP51 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

This is a real problem with the 1.0.12 upstream alsa drivers. I believe this is
fixed with the 1.0.13 drivers according the the alsa driver Changelogs I have
read. Who do I have to bribe to get newer upstream alsa drivers into the next
fedora core 6 update kernel?

Comment 9 Martin Stransky 2007-01-04 03:25:56 EST
I think Dave Jones makes updates for FC kernels. AFAIK he uses the latest
upstream kernels for it so the 1.0.13 drivers (or later) will be in FC-5/6 someday.
Comment 10 Larry Johnson 2007-02-17 14:39:51 EST
It appears the latest ALSA, or kernel updates fixes the issue.  I no longer see
this error during shutdown.  Thanks guys for the support. :)

okay, closing.
