Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 503086
Sound does not work (ie no output)
Last modified: 2009-06-04 14:59:37 EDT
I can't get about sound output on my laptop (ThinkPad Z60t). This has worked previously with the other distros I installed from the original Ubuntu to SUSE 11.1.
I have tried the hardware buttons (mute, up, down) without feedback or success.
The sound "applet" from pulse audio show it is unmuted and at 77%. Changing that, no dice.
Sound preferences show the application playing the music. There is only one output, internal audio and it is selected.
Gstreamer-properties, same. It also appears on the sound preferences.
One thing: when I installed F11, the sounds had been muted previously under openSUSE 11.1 using the hardware buttons. Not sure it is relevant though.
Also, I remember back when I installed Ubuntu, I had to use the gnome-mixer to enable the "Front" channel. There is not such thing visible in PulseAudio sound preferences.

Could you please have a peek on this mail from Adam:
And then attach the amixer outputs here, before and after trying to fix the mixer settings with "alsamixer"?

alsa info before
alsa info run when there is no sound.
I just did "alsactl init" and it works.
Created attachment 345921 [details]
output of amixer -c0
this is the output of "amixer -c0", but at that point it already works since I did "alsactl init"
And by work I mean I had RB playing music, and suddenly, the music was in the headphones when I did "alsactl init", which is all I wanted.
Ok, if alsactl init fixed your issue, then this was simply an upgrade issue. Closing.
