Hm, log looks sane and I don't see any problem there. You have conected two
cards, intel and USB. Try to run system-config-soundcard and set the default card.

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2007-05-09 14:50:52 UTC
Looks like I had PCI headphone attached.  Now I removed that and my default is
Realtek ALC882M.  Still no sound.  system-config-soundcard shows me only device
which is "Corporation 82801(ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller".

alsamixergui gives me an error "alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open open failed for
default: No such device or address".

Also posted my hardware profile(2c5b662b-a39a-43d6-b450-8c420897696f).

How can reinitilize all soundcard configuration ?

Comment 4 Martin Stransky 2007-05-16 09:05:25 UTC
Realtek ALC882M is the "Corporation 82801(ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio
Controller", right? 

Please try to write these lines to /etc/asound.conf:

#DEV 0
defaults.pcm.card 0
defaults.pcm.device 0
defaults.ctl.card 0

It sets the defaults to the first card (you can check your sound devices by
"aplay -l")

It seems to work after trying similar approach mentioned at:

Now the volume is so low, by putting max on system control and amplifier I can
barely hear. I am yet to try /etc/modprobe.conf modification. But is there any
other way to increase the volume ?

BTW, "Corporation 82801(ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller" is correct.

Thanks and appreciate your help.

Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2007-05-17 10:02:47 UTC
You can check the alsamixer utility but not sure if it helps you...

Comment 7 Need Real Name 2007-05-22 19:01:46 UTC
I checked the alsamixergui, but it did not help increasing volume.

Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2007-06-11 11:49:11 UTC
Please report it to upstream (www.alsa-project.org), they're authors of linux
sound system. And you can check the latest drivers (1.0.14), they're available
there, too.

Comment 9 Need Real Name 2007-06-21 05:40:12 UTC
I have update to Fedora 7 and issue starts with no sound.  Did not try further
at this time.  Will update when I try it again.

Comment 10 Martin Stransky 2007-06-26 15:05:36 UTC
Please check the new driver/packages (1.0.14 final). How-to is here:

Anyway, Please report it to upstream (www.alsa-project.org) if the updated
drivers doesn't help to you.
