Description Hubert Figuiere 2009-05-28 15:14:10 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.

Kernel is
Linux grinch.figuiere.net #1 SMP Tue May 12 10:44:10 EDT 2009 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Audio device is:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller (rev 03)

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"?

I just did "alsactl init" and it works.

output of amixer -c0

this is the output of "amixer -c0", but at that point it already works since I did "alsactl init"
Comment 5 Hubert Figuiere 2009-05-29 11:41:12 EDT
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.
