The audio on my Asus laptop behaves very oddly. The first is a relatively minor issue: Whenever I change a volume in, say alsamixer
, the sound turns off until I either reboot or enter and leave suspend-to-RAM. The second is fairly annoying: whenever the audio is active, there is a constant noise at a very high pitch; a lot of people can't hear it. I have toyed with the ALSA mixer settings, but I haven't exhausted the possibilities, I think.
My kernel version is 188.8.131.52. I am running Slackware 12. The relevant lspci
line is as follows:
