No Sound Using ATI Technologies SBx0 Azalia / ATI Technologies RV630/M76 Audio


00:14.2 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia
01:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc RV630/M76 audio device [Radeon HD 2600 Series]


I have run the realtek-linux-audiopack-5.0.1 and the install runs successfully.

When it gets to the part that runs alsaconf, I get the following options to select for sound-cards:

hda-intel "ATI TEchnologies Inc SBx0 Azalia"
hda-intel "ATI TEchnolgoies Inc RV630/M76 audio device [Radeon HD 2600]"
legacy "Probe legacy ISA (non-PnP) chips"

I have an Asus G2K-A1 laptop with an AMD Turion TL-64 x2.

I have read about problems about the combination of Alsa with my hardware and SMP I'm thinking that may have something to do with it.

It looks like the snd-hda-intel module loads successfully, I just don't get any sound. The closest I've come to getting sound to work on my laptop is to hear a momentary very low volume 'pop' when it appears everything is loading successfully.

I'm running Fedora 8. Below is the output of the 'uname -a' command.

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.6.23.1-42.fc8 #1 SMP Tue Oct 30 13:18:33 EDT 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Let me know of any additional information you require for trouble-shooting. I'm sure I've left something out.

I figured I'd post the entire output of the 'lspci' command, if it assists in any way.

I have the exact same laptop with the same sound problem. I have not been able to fix this issue. I'm using Debian and hopefully alsa-1.0.17 will fix this problem. Although, originally when I installed debian, which shipped with linux-2.6.23, sound was working fine. If you're desperate, you can try installing the earlier kernel.

By the way, since we have the same laptop, have you been able to enable hardware acceleration of the Radeon Mobility HD 2600? Right now I'm using xserver-xorg radeonhd driver and it's playing videos too well. I know video is pretty much worthless without sound, but it's worth a shot...

Just got HW Acceleration working today. I was using FC9, but had to downgrade "X Windows System" to version that runs with FC8. Now, HW Acceleration is working with Compiz-Beryl and looking pretty. The only thing that has disappointed me with this laptop (Asus G2K A1) is that I still can't get the sound to work on this hardware. Still doing research, though.

RESOLVED: No Sound Using ATI Technologies SBx0 Azalia / ATI Technologies RV630/M76 A

This issue was resolved 6/6/2009 by doing the following:

1) Get hda-verb utility (Do a goole search for it) and install it.

2) Add the following to the /etc/rc.local startup script:

/usr/local/sbin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x01 SET_GPIO_MASK 3
/usr/local/sbin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x01 SET_GPIO_DIRECTION 1
/usr/local/sbin/hda-verb /dev/snd/hwC0D0 0x01 SET_GPIO_DATA 1

Make sure none of the volume settings are low or muted.

Reboot. You should now have sound.
