Question Mono Sound with Analog Devices ad1968a chip on 64Studio


Hi!

I am running 64Studio on an AMD64 machine, so far so good. But the speakers remain quiet!

I have managed to get sound out of the system by booting from a Ubuntu liveDVD, but similar to the description here http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-324674.html I get only mono sound.

Similar to this thread http://www.mepis.org/node/12202, I am using an Asus M2NPV-VM AM2 mainboard which has the ADI AD1986A sound chip on it.

Actually I got it working. By running $ sudo alsaconf -> selected hda-intel
But again, sound is only mono - just like on the Ubuntu thread I mentioned above..

Thanks!

You may need a newer version of alsa. First, what is the version of alsa drivers that you are currently running? Type "cat /proc/asound/version" to find out.

Next, I'll need to know the pci subsystem ID for the audio device. Type "lspci -vn |fgrep -A1 0403" to find out.

I can use that info to see if your system is in the latest driver source, or at least give you some test options to try.

Also, try installing the latest stand alone alsa-driver from alsa-project.org. Either alsa-driver-1.0.14rc2 or 14rc3.

Thanks so far!

cat /proc/asound/version is:
Code:
Advanced Linux Sound Architecture Driver Version 1.0.11rc4 (Wed Mar 22 10:27:24 2006 UTC).
pci subsystem ID for the audio device:
Code:
00:10.1 0403: 10de:026c (rev a2)
        Subsystem: 1043:81cb

Actually now I removed the default alsa-base package via Synaptic and then compiled/installed it by hand using this guide: http://alsa.opensrc.org/Quick_Install

Steps were:
Donwload of ftp://ftp.alsa-project.org/pub/drive....14rc2.tar.bz2
to userspace
mkdir /usr/src/alsa
cp fromuserspace to /usr/src/alsa

tar jxvf alsa-driver-1.0.14rc2.tar.bz2
cd alsa-driver-1.0.14rc2
./configure --with-sequencer=yes && make

And before I could enter make install it complained:

Code:
make[2]: *** [__modpost] ERROR 134
make[1]: *** [modules] ERROR 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.17-1-multimedia-amd64-k8'make: *** [compile] ERROR 2
What does that mean?? (noob)


BTW: will the new driver also fix that my setup is unaware of the existance of freebob (to get my firewire breakout box working)?

I looked up your subsystem ID and it is supported in alsa-driver-1.0.14rc2.

Unfortunately, there isn't enough in this compile error information to help. Need to see the build data starting from the first error. It probably means you don't have the kernel source installed to build the driver. I don't use ubuntu, so I won't be able to help with this, sorry. check out the ubuntu forums, I heard there is a guide to building and installing these drivers.
