I get " No soundcards found..." after alsaconf detects and configs. maestro3? : ^ (
Running Debian Lenny //config-2.6.26-2-686 on Compaq Presario 1700 laptop, I can hear speaker beeps when logging in and alsaconf appears to work and the fails, running as “su”, root and user in audio group. I have configured alsa to work on other systems and this one just fails:
Unloading ALSA sound driver modules: snd-maestro3 snd-ac97-codec snd-seq snd-seq-device snd-pcm snd-timer snd-page-alloc.
Building card database…
Setting default volumes…
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory
Saving the mixer setup used for this in /var/lib/alsa/asound.state.
/usr/sbin/alsactl: save_state:1497: No soundcards found…
Now ALSA is ready to use.
For adjustment of volumes, use your favorite mixer.
Have a lot of fun!
I hope to get a resolve for this one, I have looked at numerous posts and bug reports with no final working solution to implement. I will include more detail for clarification.
When I 'lspci -v' the sound card is identified:
00:0a.0 Multimedia audio controller: ESS Technology ES1988 Allegro-1 (rev 12)
Subsystem: Compaq Computer Corporation Device 002e
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 5
I/O ports at 1400 [size=256]
Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2
Kernel modules: snd-maestro3
:/# cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
alias snd-card-0 snd-maestro3
options snd-maestro3 index=0
So, it appears the correct association for sound card 0 is setup, yet continues to error for package applications, and even 'speaker-test':
Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 1 channels
Using 16 octaves of pink noise
ALSA lib confmisc.c:768
parse_card) cannot find card '0'
ALSA lib conf.c:3513
_snd_config_evaluate) function snd_func_card_driver returned error: No such file or directory
What other parameters can be tested to resolve this issue?
