Sound problems: Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)


Well Im not sure if this should be in the newbie section but anyway.

I use FC3 with a modifyed kernel so i can use my wireless.
my sound wont work, in windows it says that i have 'SoundMax integrated digital audio'
and linux /sbin/lspci gives me.

00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corp. 82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)

When searching for answers i found that almost all of them pointed at alsa.
i downloaded alsa-driver-0.9.1adi and did the ./configure as they told me in the readme, after that i did make install and got


[root@firedance alsa-driver-0.9.1adi]# make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/firedance/Linux/alsa-driver-0.9.1adi/acore'

Anyone of you know what to do or if im going in the right direction?

One idea...

Hi!

I have the same sound card on my Asus motherboard.
In FC3 there are no problems using it!
Maybe it doesn't work because you changed something in the kernel (I am new so I can't tell u more about this but I know that this sound card should work from the first minute of FC3 installation).

Hi, I have an IBM S50 desktop with the same chipset. My output from lspci is identical to yours, and I have no audio, just like you. Have you made any progress on this? I would have exected FC3 to come with all of the alsa stuff aready compiled and installed ... looks like they use a subset of the utilities though.

btw, your problem with compiling above is that with the 2.6 kernel Linus has started to make sure you comple against the right kernel, and not default system header files, thus the error message for you to change the include's to point to your kernel source and not system headers.

I have the same chipset on my board, and I had the same problem. Though, I believe it has something to do with your drivers (XMMS uses OSS and it runs fine, aRts never worked for me and ALSA was very, very quiet). I don't know if that helps any, but you might want to experiment with drivers and hope that works.

Good luck.

maybe this wil help more, When I run Kanotix, the sound works perfectly. Knoppix and Mandrake both won't run sound. but they all use the same driver.

I have the same sound problem as above. I have the Intel 82801EB/ER(ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97. I've installed Xine, It plays mpg, DVD so far, but quietly. I've tried using,alsamixer, changed settings and same result. I'm new at this and extremely confused. I was using RH9 and the sound was working. I'm now using FC3 without audio. Thanks to anyone for help.

Are you using S/PDIF for sound output? Try the earphone output and see if there's sound there. I have a 82801DB/DBL/DBM audio controller (so it's not the same but anyways..). I noticed that S/PDIF output for this card using alsa is a bit flaky. Among other things, the S/PDIF mute button is reversed (and I think the volume slider is too), and Dolby Digital output from VLC doesn't work either. Maybe some other controls are also reversed? I didn't really look into this because right now I don't need digital output so there might be a perfectly reasonable explanation.
Anyway, I would grab the latest alsa drivers...

Thanks, rpz. I'm new at this and it's probably something very elementary. Chem1946

Sounds like a problem eh?

anhow... yeah.
same stuf have the same audio controller on my board, and I had the same problem.
i got it to work/it worked of the get go with suse, mandrake 10.1, and slackware 10.0... but now in fedora core 3... i am having problems. if anyone finds the answer to this problem... there will sure be alot of fixes made.
(with suse and slackware... all i had to do was unmute all the devices with alsamixer in the terminal.. it turned out that everything was defaulted as mute)
unfortunately my n00b skills allow me to do little more than that.

Got it working

I had the same issues as everyone here.

Running Ubuntu. Sound worked in previous version - but not when I upgraded to the new beta (Hoary).

Upgraded ALSA and then unmuted PCM sound. Started working right away.

Good Luck!

Ok, after reading your post I tried a few different things. I've found that volume for this chip for me is not controlled by either Master or PCM ... but by Headphone !!! I simply un-muted Headphone in the mixer, and turned up headphone volume ... and it now works .. really strange but now maybe I won't need to switch to windoze as often.

I know this is a year late, but just wanted to add that unmuting the headphone volume on the mixer corrected my sound issue as well. I have the same Intel Chipset.
