Fedora kernel updates killed sound on ICH10
Last modified: 2009-01-03 17:43:23 EST
Description of problem:
F10 kernel updates killed my ICH10 sound.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install F10, notice good sound (if non-linear mixer volume) out of the box.
Update to kernel 220.127.116.11-134.fc10.i686.pae along with all the policykit stuff etc., notice that gstreamer sound still works but other stuff that used to does not, e.g. mplayer
Update to kernel 18.104.22.168-159.i686.pae and notice that there's no sound at all :(
Boot into 22.214.171.124-117 with all the other updates from grub and notice sound automagically restored to gstreamer and mplayer.
Intel G45 motherboard/sound card (DG45ID)
This is a bug I found which may have something to do with the problems, or maybe not.
I confirm this bug on a latitude D830 laptop running full-updated fedora 10.
Sound work with kernel 126.96.36.199-134.fc10.i686 (not using pae) and all previous fedora 10 kernel, not working in 188.8.131.52-159.i686 or 184.108.40.206-167.fc10.i686 .
Tried also kernel-220.127.116.11-152.rc2.fc10.i686 : sound not working.
Using pulseaudio, and vumeter in pulseaudio indicate good treatment of music (from padevchooser applet) but no sound from loudspeaker, also trying to bypass pulseaudio and use alsa directly same behaviour.
Reading kernel changelog is possible the key element is new alsa:
* Mon Dec 08 2008 Chuck Ebbert <firstname.lastname@example.org> 18.104.22.168-139
- ALSA 1.0.18a
Maybe is possible to try 22.214.171.124-137 and 126.96.36.199-143 to see if sound changes accordingly.
Similar to Bug 475756
Ok, i tried diffrent kernels, soud worked until 188.8.131.52-137 and stop working with 184.108.40.206-143 , biggest candidate for stop working new alsa in my opinion.
[defraz@localhost ~]$ cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [Intel ]: HDA-Intel - HDA Intel
HDA Intel at 0xfebfc000 irq 21
I also have ICH7. Sound doesn't work with kernel-220.127.116.11-159.fc10.x86_64
and 18.104.22.168-134.fc10.x86_64 is OK.
