Lightbulb Sound card disappeared....WHYYYYYY???????????HOWWWWWWWWWwwTOoooooo


Hi All
I installed my Ubuntu 6.06 few days back and was not able to configure the soundcard .(the volume control icon showed hda intel and Sigmatel STAC9221 A2 as the two devices).
After installing gstreamer plugins the players Totem,Kaffeine seemed to run the songs but no sound appeared(song tracker moved). alsamixer cmd showed the levels as 100 for each. tried for different formats ogg,spx,wav,mp3.........

When i looke up for solution i found this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/HdaIntelSoundHowto
And followed the steps 1 cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
2 http://www.mjmwired.net/kernel/Docum...figuration.txt
3 options snd-hda-intel model=MODEL
reboot

results 1 Codec: Sigmatel STAC9221 A2
2 searched my card in the Alsa txt and found this
STAC9220/9221
990 ref Reference board
991 3stack D945 3stack
992 5stack D945 5stack + SPDIF
993 intel-mac-v1 Intel Mac Type 1
994 intel-mac-v2 Intel Mac Type 2
995 intel-mac-v3 Intel Mac Type 3
996 intel-mac-v4 Intel Mac Type 4
997 intel-mac-v5 Intel Mac Type 5
998 macmini Intel Mac Mini (equivalent with type 3)
999 macbook Intel Mac Book (eq. type 5)
1000 macbook-pro-v1 Intel Mac Book Pro 1st generation (eq. type 3)
1001 macbook-pro Intel Mac Book Pro 2nd generation (eq. type 3)
1002 imac-intel Intel iMac (eq. type 2)
1003 imac-intel-20 Intel iMac (newer version) (eq. type 3)
1004 dell-d81 Dell (unknown)
1005 dell-d82 Dell (unknown)
1006 dell-m81 Dell (unknown)
1007 dell-m82 Dell XPS M121

3 As my Motherboard is Intel 945 I replaced MODEL with 3stack as asked in the
help.ubuntu.com site

Now after reboot,---------------the volume control icon got red (blocked) and error appears as "No volume control gstreamer plugin/device found."
---------------the aplay cmd shows
ALSA lib confmisc.c:672snd_func_card_driver) cannot find card '0'
ALSA lib conf.c:3493_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such device

ALSA lib pcm.c:2102snd_pcm_open_noupdate) Unknown PCM default
aplay: main:544: audio open error: No such device
---------------------the cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec shows no such directory.
---------------Totem on playing starts with error as could not establish connxn with sound server.

Just out of curiousity, why are you running such an old version of ubuntu? You would probably have the best chance of a working sound card just by upgrading and reinstalling. With ubuntu I've never had one not work right out of the box.

Are you trying the latest version of gstreamer on the old build of ubuntu? Or is it the old version of gstreamer as well?



P.S The title of the thread is kind of annoying.
