no sound or fury with Realtek HD audio system


Hello friends,

I hope someone can help me here. I searched the forum threads and could not find anything that could solve my problem.

I recently installed Xandros linux (kernel 2.6.11, XP dual boot) and cannot get my sound up and running in linux (Realtek HD audio device). I went to Realtek and downloaded the latest ALSA files and tried installing them with their makefile script. All seems fine, then the script begins the alsaconf program and I get the following message, "No supported PnP or PCI card found". The same occurs when I run alsaconf on it's own.

I checked the PCI devices and modules info, and cannot find my audio device anywhere. I will put the system info below; hopefully it means something to someone. What can I do now? I hope that someone can help me here.

Otherwise, I am having trouble 'growing' in Linux knowledge. For instance, the info below is like French to me. I can understand a word here and there, but it means little to me on the whole. Can someone recommend a source, where I can really learn this material? There are so darn many books and websites, but the ones I've glanced at are either too simple or too complex.

Thank you sincerely your time and consideration.

I think you will need the snd_hda_intel and snd_hda_codec modules loaded, though im unsure what your soundcard is, but there are a number of options you should read about before using them, some of these cards have... issues There is info in the kernel source Documentation dir that'll tell you if your card is supported by these modules(im not at home so i cant point the correct path to the docs for you - sorry). As for where to learn about this stuff, you already found the best place, here. You'll find more info than you can handle here, and links to many other good places, dig around with the search engine and you can also try using google.com/linux. Good luck

edit: those modules are alsa modules i believe, so you'll need alsa

Just type alsaconf into a terminal to have your soundcard configured.

You may still have to tweak some settings after that, by launching the volume control panel.

Please post lspci.

Sorry to have not posted lately. I spent the weekend working on this. First I tried installing a new sound card. I picked up a Sound Blaster Audigy PCI card and installed it. It worked fine in Windows after I disabled the on board audio device. Nicely, I was able to detect this new card with Xandros. However, running alsaconf led to a problem; alsaconf showed the new card, but when I ran it I recieved a flurry of error messages...followed by the infuriating lines "have fun"! Running it again, it no longer detected any PCI devices. So I figured that I could refresh the alsa library. I had the great idea of doing this through xandros networks. I removed "libasound2" which, for some reason also deleted files associated with kde. I reinstalled this library (hoping all was ok) and rebooted...no more GUI!

At this point I figured on trying the other path: upgrading to Xandros desktop 4. I took out the new card. Installed Xandros 4 and lo and behold all is well!!! I wonder what did the trick; could it be the new kernel, or perhaps a more robust autodetect program?

Thanks again.
