No sound in Linux... Period!!!


Hello All! I'm basically really stressed over this stupid thing.... I can't get sound to work!! I recently attempted to blank my hard drive (I have a Gateway M320 Laptop) and install Suse 10.1, thinking it may be better, in the sense of being able to make my sound work. NO! it doesn't work! I've also tried fiddling with the sound cards, but won't let me select another one because its not the right paramaters... aka Wrong Codec. But it picks this stupid 80802 or something er other one all the time. I know this is an Audio Devices (or something of the sort) sound card. AC '97. I know in the past I have stumbled on the number, but since then i have lost it (I attempted this in the past with Suse 10.0, Ubuntu, Fedora Core 5)
This is my last horrah with linux on this laptop if I can't make this work! I need SOUND!!
Thanks A BUNCH IN ADVANCE!

please use line returns to make your post more readable.
did you say your card is an onboard AC'97? to see if the proper module (driver) is loaded, please post the output of the command 'lsmod' or you can try loading the driver with 'modprobe snd-intel8x0'
if you dont know what sound card you have, please post the output of the command 'lspci'
if you get 'permission denied' or 'command not found' try the command as root.

did you run the command to load the module, as in my previous post? did it give any output after the command finished? if not, it most likely loaded the driver correctly.
now run 'alsaconfig'.. use 'M' to unmute all controls and the arrow keys to turn up all controls. then press ESC to quit the program. test the sound now.. any luck?

[Added: see follow-up note I posted after this one - alsaconf isn't running as well as I thought originally]


I'm in a similar situation - No sound at all with SuSE 10.0 although things worked fine with 9.3. Running alsaconf, it thinks it did a good during the configfure and even plays the "if you can hear this, life is good" test sound. Running alsamixer, nothing is muted, the card and chip info are:
Card: Ensoniq AudioPCI
Chip: SigmaTel STAC9708,11

During the alsaconf session, however, something ugly happens (the full listing goes on and on and on and on...). Lsmod says everything is in place but clearly something's broken. The only sounds I get are alerts from KDE, nothing from my CD/DVD drive (/dev/hdd with 666 permission and aliased to /dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd) or the line input, driven by a WinTV card (no problem with video on the screen and audio out of the WinTV card [checked with headphones], just no audio from the sound card) I've asked about this before, with zero results. Anyone want to try again?

So it looks as though alsaconf is stumbling over itself or over something done by SuSE's startup. I guess the question is how do I clear things out? Oddly, the playback of the .wav file does work.

This is actually what I am referring to

do all formats of sound work, besides those from your CD/DVD drive? all audio and movie files from your hard drive work, and KDE sounds, just not cd/dvd files? if thats the case, did you connect your cd/dvd drive to the sound card? usually theres a cable to do so, and may be the problem.
what entry in this list here would be a match for your sound card? does 'lspci' give any hints? maybe the wrong driver is loaded?

i mentioned that if you get command not found or similar errors, run the command as root. or specify the full path, /sbin/modprobe.
you ran alsaconf and you made sure nothing was muted and all volume controls are turned up? do you get errors when you try and play a file in, say, xmms?

No I don't, and I didn't get anything to show up with the modprobe either... I'm extremely baffeled... everything is up to 100... in Alsamixer though I notice that there are Green numbers under each bar and they say 00... does that mean anything?? Other wise... nothing is muted, and if it did say MM, i unmuted it (though it was for a microphone.... and yeah don't have one of those)

Edit: I don't get any errors. I physically see it reading the CD and trying to play it, but I cannot hear it

Er, Nothing works save the.wav playback at the end of alsaconf and KDE sounds (totally out of my control there). CD, DVD, TV... all are deader than yesterday's news. As to the CD/sound card cable - thought of that and all is well there. Keep in mind all of this stuff worked with SuSE 9.3 and died with 10.0 (see the SuSE forum for commentary on 10.x, Novell, etc. - little of it is good.).

See third from bottom line below - CT5880 with the ens1371 driver...

No surprises there. Again, keep in mind this all worked with SuSE 9.3 but tanked with 10.0 (yes, yes, yes, I'm looking hard at how best to get back to 9.3 and unload many revs worth of cruft in the process...)

try this command as root: modprobe snd-ens1371;modprobe snd-pcm-oss;modprobe snd-mixer-oss;modprobe snd-seq-oss
well, odd that your .wav files play. sorry i cant be of further help, hope someone can.

Ugly spud, ain't it? These messages are the same ones generated when alsaconf ran. I simply can't imagine I'm the only person in the entire SuSE Linux universe with this problem.
