Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 238370
Sound problems on 965 Chipset (Intel ICH5 Audio)
Last modified: 2016-02-23 03:27:15 EST
+++ 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.

I have attached a freshly generated scsconfig.log
If I knew how to compile the kernel, I would try that!

Strange things in dmesg -- Hope it helps.
Try to write these lines to /etc/asound.conf:
#Generated by system-config-soundcard, do not edit by hand
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
I've reinstalled Linux and turned on desktop sounds so I will know pretty quick
when the sound fails again.
