Description maria teresa 2007-09-11 12:29:11 EDT
Description of problem:
audio is not working. I tried "rilevamento della scheda audio" which I guess
translates to english as "find (or config) soundcard".

I attach the  /root/scsconfig.log file
while /root/scsrun.log files is copied below:

Hm, the log looks sane. Can you boot to the console and try to play sound via
aplay? see http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/

I tried aplay, but still I hear no sound.
I looked quickly at the web page you wrote above about alsa.
I will try to install new drivers, but due to my ignorance I'm not sure which
one I should choose on the list of  alsa-drivers for F7 page.
but today I was too busy to look carefully.

thanks for your help,

I installed today the alsa-drivers (not using rpms, I followed carefully the
steps in the ALSA support page)

Unfortunately I still hear no sound when trying with aplay.

In the installation everything went fine, only I had to change the kernel source
directory when running ./configure.
Also I got a warning message when installing libs and utils which of course
cannot be the problem, anyway the warning is the following:
$rpm -Uhv alsa-utils-1.0.14-0.8.src.rpm
   1:alsa-utils             warning: user komat does not exist - using root
in case you want to fix it (nobody is komat here, I guess it is written
somewhere in your files)

of course I did the alsaunmute command (I set volume to up to 100% to be sure!)
with the cmd: $alsaunmute 0 -v -s 100

and I have only one card:
$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC883 Analog [ALC883 Analog]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

can it be a problem that my computer is a notebook?

I hope you can help me,
Maria Teresa

> can it be a problem that my computer is a notebook?

I don't think so.

Anyway, it looks like a kernel/driver problem. You may install the latest
drivers (ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/driver/alsa-driver-1.0.15rc3.tar.bz2)
from ALSA project page (www.alsa-project.org). The install process is the same.

If it doesn't help, please report it to ALSA project - they're authors of linux
sound system.

Dear Martin Stransky,
I tried (finally! I have been pretty busy), the new alsa-driver, and also from
alsa page I took new lib and utils. Configuration and installation seem all ok,
but still I have no sound. 
I sent today a report to ALSA project.
Comment 7 Martin Stransky 2008-02-22 05:46:10 EST
okay, closing as upstream.
