Sound garbled recently on Fedora release 18 (Spherical Cow)


Hello all,

The sound on my computer is garbled up now.

I recently took the plunge and upgraded to Fedora 18. I used to listen to .OGG and .MP3 files using Rhythmbox or XMMS. Now, the sound is garbled, so I really can't listen to anything.

It is not an application problem as it exists in Rhythmbox, XMMS and the Video Player.

I am running Kernel 3.8.0-rc2 on an HP a1560n. The sound is playing through the built-in chipset Realtek ALC883 8-channel High Definition Audio.

I have been googling for answers for a few days..


Any ideas? Anyone else experiencing this?

- Raj

Hi Rupadhya, Welcome to LQ. Have you tried any of the module options available for your card here:

http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...dio-Models.txt

Have you tried working with your mixer?

Good luck. ;-)

I looked at the

http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...dio-Models.txt

and found a shell script alsa-info.sh. The script dumps the information about the ALSA Sound structures in Linux.

I Googled around for a solution, and finally gave up. I opened up a ticket with Bugzilla, and got a bunch of responses.

I finally found out it was a bad physical cord in my headphones. For some reason the bad cord was surpressing the mid-range of the signal. I threw out the headphones and closed the ticket.

Thank you all for help,

- Raj
