Description Ron Askew 2007-04-29 17:34:11 EDT
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #228589 +++

Description of problem:
On initial installation, sound was working.  After updated to kernel 2944 86x64,
it no longer worked; not even after I switched back to kernel 2798.

I have downloaded and compiled/installed the alsa drivers you suggested in Bug
#228589.  I removed the referenced in /etc/modprobe (which have not been
replaced) -- and still no results.

I do hear a speaker click during boot, just as the udev rules start up.  My
suspicion is that some other process is stepping on the sound card resources. 
But I don't know enough about debugging the kernel to prove it.


I have attached a freshly generated scsconfig.log which shows that the kernel
thinks everything is fine.

If I knew how to compile the kernel, I would try that!

Try to write these lines to /etc/asound.conf:

#Generated by system-config-soundcard, do not edit by hand
#SWCONF
#DEV 0
defaults.pcm.card 0
defaults.pcm.device 0
defaults.ctl.card 0

You can close this bug. I will open check back when I can get closer to an answer.

I haven't determined the cause, but some process was stepping on either of the
alsa-lib or snd-intel8x0 kernel drivers.

Most of my installs and updates we batched.  There is no way of knowing what the
process was.

I've reinstalled Linux and turned on desktop sounds so I will know pretty quick
when the sound fails again.
