Description Eric 2012-06-21 13:02:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Sound does not work on internal speakers but does work on headphones on Vaio VPC-Z12 laptop.  Sound used to work fine in Fedora 16.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 17, kernel 3.4.3-1.fc17.x86_64

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot into Fedora 17
2.Try to play music
Actual results: No sound from speakers, only on headphones when they are connected

Expected results: Sound from speakers

Additional info: Sound codec is Realtek ALC889. Booting KDE spin of Fedora 16, sound works on internal speakers, or on headphones correctly.  Booting KDE spin of Fedora 17, sound does not work on speakers, it works on headphones only. I tried adding "options snd-hda-intel model=sony-vaio-tt" to /etc/modprobe.d/vaioz.conf with no affect.

Try installing a 3.3 kernel, 3.4 has had issues for me on similar hardware.

I have attached the output of alsa-info for the last working kernel (3.3.7) and the latest Fedora kernel (3.4.3-1).

I 'filed' this upstream (on the alsa-devel mailing list), and tiwai came up with a patch which should be making its way into the upstream kernel at present. http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/taskinfo?taskID=4337370 is a scratch F17 kernel build which includes the patch and ought to work. Kernel team, the commit is https://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/tiwai/sound.git;a=commit;h=e427c2375646789ecd0ccaef1a1e41458559ab2d , it looks like it's scheduled for 3.6, so we could backport it to 3.5 or just wait for 3.6 to go stable, either way.
Comment 5 Justin M. Forbes 2012-09-26 17:27:23 EDT
This patch is now in the F17 kernel, and should appear in 3.5.4-2 and later kernels. Please close if things are working for you when this kernel is available.
Comment 6 Eric 2012-10-04 16:21:06 EDT
I verified that sound works properly on the Vaio now with the new 3.5.4-2 kernel.  Thanks to all involved.  I can mark this as closed.
Comment 7 Shimi 2012-10-11 14:49:40 EDT
PsssT... Same here.

Today or Yesterday i update the my system, fedora 17 - kernel is updated to ver 3.5.6-1. Now i have this bug... :/

So... What's now?
Comment 8 Adam Williamson 2012-10-11 15:23:30 EDT
I guess the patch was dropped with the expectation the fix is in upstream 3.5.6 but it isn't? I'll check here and re-open if I can confirm.
Comment 9 Adam Williamson 2012-10-15 13:03:24 EDT
I got 3.6.1-1 on my last F17 update, and the sound is fine there for me. You?
Comment 10 Shimi 2012-10-16 01:58:48 EDT
Yes! sound is fine also for me. Thanks!
