Question Realtek High Definition audio not wokring on fedora core 6


I am brand new to linux and have installed FC6 on a Compaq Presario model sr1319rs
I have no audio when I try soundcard detection I get the audio config saying the folowing audio device was detected

Vendor: Intel:
Model: 82801fb/fbm/fr/frw (ICH6 family) high definition audio Controller
Module: snd-hda-intel

I click the cound test and get no sound but I also get no error it plays as far as the config is concerned


also PCM device listed is ALC880 Analog with no other options

any help would be great as I said I am new to linux and not realy sure what I doing here

Could you post the following pices of information?

lspci -s 0:1b -vn
cat /proc/asound/version
cat /proc/asound/card0/codec*

These three things will help determine your next step (which should be as simple as adding your subdevice id to the driver).

You could also try to load the sound module with different model parameters. Here is a list of parameters for that codec:
ALC880
3stack 3-jack in back and a headphone out
3stack-digout 3-jack in back, a HP out and a SPDIF out
5stack 5-jack in back, 2-jack in front
5stack-digout 5-jack in back, 2-jack in front, a SPDIF out
6stack 6-jack in back, 2-jack in front
6stack-digout 6-jack with a SPDIF out
w810 3-jack
z71v 3-jack (HP shared SPDIF)
asus 3-jack (ASUS Mobo)
asus-w1v ASUS W1V
asus-dig ASUS with SPDIF out
asus-dig2 ASUS with SPDIF out (using GPIO2)
uniwill 3-jack
F1734 2-jack
lg LG laptop (m1 express dual)
lg-lw LG LW20/LW25 laptop
tcl TCL S700
clevo Clevo laptops (m520G, m665n)
test for testing/debugging purpose, almost all controls can be
adjusted. Appearing only when compiled with
$CONFIG_SND_DEBUG=y
auto auto-config reading BIOS (default)

To try them, open a console window, type "su" to login as root (it will prompt you for the root password), then type "rmmod snd-hda-intel;modprobe snd-hda-intel model=<model from list>" (replace <model from list> with a model name, ex: model=clevo).

If you find one that works for both audio out (speakers, headphones, speaker mute when using headphones), and recording (all mic jacks you can test), then add that info to this thread so I can add the correct entry into the driver. Chances are that it is already fixed in a newer driver release.

here is the info you asked for also just as another note here I was not able to do this from su mode I had to log in as root when I tried from my logon I got this

[root@localhost brandon]# lspci -s 0:1b -vn
bash: lspci: command not found

not sure if this is a problem or not but I thought I would add that in

also mmod from root did not work same error as above as shown below

[root@localhost ~]# lspci -s 0:1b -vn

[root@localhost ~]# mmod snd-hda-intel;modprobe snd-hda-intel model=asus
bash: mmod: command not found

[root@localhost ~]# mmod snd-hda-intel;modprobe snd-hda-intel model=HP
bash: mmod: command not found



thanx

I'm really impressed with the support from the linux community
thanx to all who will help in the experiment into linux

The command that I gave you is rmmod (r m m o d - without the spaces). Hard to read with the font on this site.

I also looked at the current alsa source code. Your system is currently supported in later versions of alsa. Try downloading and building this version: ftp://ftp.suse.com/pub/projects/alsa...061129.tar.bz2

Does sound work under kunbuntu?
If so post output from
/sbin/lspci
/sbin/lsmod


For the lspci command you need to use as /sbin/lspci since default fedora users do not have /sbin in thier path.

sound did work on kubuntu
after trying it out for a while I did not care for that distro
so I have changed now to suse 10.1 using the gnome desktop and
I've had only a few hardware problems the biggest one was for
a TV card that I can't get working
for now I'm dual booting w/ XP to run the TV card
I can post the lspci and lsmod if needed but I'm at work and
can't do it right now

Thank you Brian1 and Gruemaster for your help

Fox_MS: You actually have a different situation. You have a different sound chip entirely. What I recommend for you, based on your post, is to download, build, and install the alsa-driver-1.0.14rc3 version, then try loading the new driver with the following options:

modprobe snd-hda-intel model=<model>

where <model> is one of:

minimal
min_fp
full
full_dig
allout
auto


If one of these options works for all your sound ports, let me know and I'll add your system to the driver.

Thank you very much for your reply. I have done as you said and tried all the above model options still it does not work. I am not sure if I am supposed to do alsaconf after modprobe snd-hda-intel model=<model>? I tried all that too but nothing worked. Just for information, I built the alsa-drivers with the following options

./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-sequencer=yes

could that be a problem?

I must confess this thing has frustrated me enough now especially that I have tried different distributions like kubuntu, Mandriva and now Suse and none of them want to work.

The sound works well on windows but for whatever reason it doesn't want to work on linux.

Try rebuilding with "./configure --with-cards=hda-intel --with-debug=detect". Then, after you load the driver, type "dmesg | fgrep ALSA" to see what debugging info the driver kicks out.

For whatever reason, "dmesg | fgrep ALSA" is not giving me anything.

I have used the option as you gave me above but still it does not work with all the options allout, auto etc.

I am not giving up yet.... I am sure there is just a way it can be sorted out. I really thank you for your help and will continue to look out incase there is something else I can do.

Many thanks

I Still haven't solved my problem and it is frustrating me every day. I still think there is a solution to the problem honestly. But I can't just see what it is. I mean if the system is playing sound on the windows which means the physical connections inside my computer are okay. So it is just a software driver problem which should have a straight forward solution.

Please if there is any one who can help.... please help
