No Sound with Fedora 10 on ATI Tech SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)


I don't get any sound coming from my laptop speakers using the ATI Technologies SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) audio device.

Below is the output of the 'lspci | grep -i audio':

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


If this is any help, below is the output of the 'aplay -l' command:

**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: RMX [Hercules DJ Console RMX], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC660-VD Analog [ALC660-VD Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 2: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: ATI HDMI [ATI HDMI]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I've attached the output of the alsa-info.sh script to assist with diagnostics.

I've already tried unmuting the volume. I think the driver loads successfully, and Alsa detects my hardware, but I just can't figure out why no sound is coming from my laptop speakers.

Let me know if you require additional information for trouble-shooting.

A quick look at the alsa-info shows that pulseaudio and aRts are not runing.This may depend on what runlevel you're in.You can enable any service with;
Code:
chkconfig <service> reset
.

Thanks for the response. I didn't think I needed Pulseaudio and aRts running if I had Alsa running. I'll install both, check for sound, and report the results.

Just saw alsa-1.0.19 in my add/remove software repository looker-upper. I'm going to install that, check for sound and report the results.

Well, I've added arts-1.5.10-1 and several pulseaudio packages, but still no sound from PC speakers or headphones. Strange, I thought Alsa was detecting my sound-card, but I'm not too sure now. When I run the command /etc/init.d/alsasound restart", I get the following error:

/usr/sbin/alsactl: load_state:1608: No soundcards found...

No Sound with Fedora 10 on ATI Tech SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) [RESOLVED]

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.
