Description Joe Sadusk 2007-06-12 19:26:07 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a Thinkpad X60, which has an Intel High Definition Audio controller in
it.  system-config-sound appears to detect it accurately, and when FC7 was first
installed it played sound fine, but after an update to latest packages, it
produces no sound.  All sound channels are up to the maximum in Volume Control.
 The sound test in system-config-sound also doesn't produce anything.  This is
both with and without headphones plugged in.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
joe@arthur:~$ rpm -q system-config-soundcard
system-config-soundcard-2.0.6-5.fc7
joe@arthur:~$ rpm -q kernel
kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7

Hm, the logs look sane. Can you check the latest drivers? (1.0.14). how-to is
here: http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/

Comment 4 Joe Sadusk 2007-06-26 19:28:14 UTC
I installed these:
alsa-driver-1.0.14-61.fc7.i386.rpm
alsa-driver-devel-1.0.14-61.fc7.i386.rpm
alsa-kmdl-2.6.21-1.3228.fc7-1.0.14-61.fc7.i686.rpm

And there was no change.  One thing I noticed while poking around, don't know if
its relevant.  Even though the gnome mixer and alsamixer both report the volume
as being turned all the way up, I see this:
joe@arthur:~$ cat /proc/asound/card0/oss_mixer

Comment 5 Martin Stransky 2007-06-27 08:20:18 UTC
It's an oss mixer, not ALSA so it doesn't matter.

But, I have no idea what's wrong here. Could you check the original kernel
distributed with F7? (not from updates)

Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2007-06-27 08:26:42 UTC
Could you please check the non-xen kernel? (see Bug 245479)

Comment 7 Joe Sadusk 2007-06-30 17:26:20 UTC
I apologize, but this turns out not to be a bug.  I screwed up a bios setting
that  muted sound in hardware.  My fault.

Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2007-07-02 08:42:25 UTC
okay, no problem.
