Audio problem with ATI SBx00 Azalia
Greetings! All right, I am going nuts here, I cannot figure this out. I just bought a new laptop (MSI GT735) with an ATI Azalia audio chipset. I'm not entirely sure this is what it is as when I load everything, it shows up as both ATI and Realtek ALC888. The driver I use is the hda-intel driver.
The issue that I am having is that I cannot get any audio out of the speakers on the laptop itself, however it plays just fine when I plug my headphones into the headphone jack. I can very faintly hear the subwoofer playing when I turn up the 'Front' control in gnome-alsamixer (yes the laptop came with a subwoofer). I know that the speakers themselves work as they play under, yikes, Windows.
My kernel config is as follows:
<*> Intel HD Audio [*] Build hwdep interface for HD-audio driver[*] Support digital beep via input layer[*] Build Realtek HD-audio codec support [*] Build Analog Device HD-audio codec support[*] Build IDT/Sigmatel HD-audio codec support [*] Build VIA HD-audio codec support [*] Build ATI HDMI HD-audio codec support[*] Build NVIDIA HDMI HD-audio codec support[*] Build Conexant HD-audio codec support[*] Build C-Media HD-audio codec support[*] Build Silicon Labs 3054 HD-modem codec support[*] Enable generic HD-audio codec parser [*] Aggressive power-saving on HD-audio
(60) Default time-out for HD-audio power-save mode
As a last ditch effort, I ended up building everything in as a few other people only said to do so for the ATI audio (not really sure why). Any help with this would be nice. It is confusing me as to why audio works everywhere but through the actual speakers on the laptop.
