Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 485598
No sound output, Audigy2 with kernel 188.8.131.52-170.2.5
Last modified: 2009-10-30 15:34:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The fix for intel_hda in the new kernel does not fix Audigy2. My Audigy2 card is detected, but there is not sound output. Speakers pop as usual during booting, but by gdm sound is gone. I have also tried disabling pulse, but this appears to be an alsa problem, although sounds works in base Fedora 10 kernel.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Boot to new kernel, without or without pulse enabled.
Attempt to play any sounds through any medium, except system beeps.
No sound output
Sound outputted per settings.

I found the problem. It looks like an update caused the Analog/Digital switch to be set to Digital. Changing the switch in alsamixer back to analog has brought sound back.
Why would an update touch this switch?
I'm not sure. Could you try to reproduce this issue with the 'alsaunmute' command?
