the last line was added as a potential workaround but with no success...no sound though speakers...no sound through headphones...please help

Hi kaoscoded, Welcome to LQ. Please open a terminal post the results of the following.

Code:
$ sudo lspci -v | grep -i audio
$ sudo lsmod
$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
$ cat /proc/asound/version
Good luck. ;-)

thanks peacedog...here is what came up:




# lspci -v grep -i audio
Usage: lspci [<switches>]

Basic display modes:
-mm Produce machine-readable output (single -m for an obsolete format)
-t Show bus tree

Display options:
-v Be verbose (-vv for very verbose)
-k Show kernel drivers handling each device
-x Show hex-dump of the standard part of the config space
-xxx Show hex-dump of the whole config space (dangerous; root only)
-xxxx Show hex-dump of the 4096-byte extended config space (root only)
-b Bus-centric view (addresses and IRQ's as seen by the bus)
-D Always show domain numbers

Resolving of device ID's to names:
-n Show numeric ID's
-nn Show both textual and numeric ID's (names & numbers)
-q Query the PCI ID database for unknown ID's via DNS
-qq As above, but re-query locally cached entries
-Q Query the PCI ID database for all ID's via DNS

Selection of devices:
-s [[[[<domain>]:]<bus>]:][<slot>][.[<func>]] Show only devices in selected slots
-d [<vendor>]:[<device>] Show only devices with specified ID's

Other options:
-i <file> Use specified ID database instead of audio
-p <file> Look up kernel modules in a given file instead of default modules.pcimap
-M Enable `bus mapping' mode (dangerous; root only)

PCI access options:
-A <method> Use the specified PCI access method (see `-A help' for a list)
-O <par>=<val> Set PCI access parameter (see `-O help' for a list)
-G Enable PCI access debugging
-H <mode> Use direct hardware access (<mode> = 1 or 2)
-F <file> Read PCI configuration dump from a given file

ok...after some digging around i came across this post:

https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...5/#post3393656

the fix used was to go to alsamixer and find external and mute it...this worked in that i can now hear audio through the headphones...yay

however, still no audio through the speakers...still need help for that

Please post the result from the following.

Code:
$ cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#* | grep Codec
Copy and paste it if need be, grep needs to be piped with the | character.

Good luck. ;-)

um...isn't that the same command line without the grep? so i copy and pasted again:


# cat /proc/asound/card0/codec#*
cat: /proc/asound/card0/codec#*: No such file or directory
#


the same response as last time mate...

Sorry I didn't get back to this sooner.

Actually that is the same command w/out the grep, but it should have produced a bit more information as grep isolates a specific item. It didn't produce anything so lets try this.

Code:
$ ls -la /proc/asound/card0
Good luck. ;-)

Okay, what mixer options/channels do you have available? Have you tried more than one mixer? Do you have these two channels?

external amplifier

line jack sense

Good luck. ;-)

ok...in my 3rd post i stated that i found a way to get audio through headphones...so yes, i used alsamixer to mute the external amp and then i got audio through the headphones...i have also used the line jack sense in both on and off mode...made no difference...any other thoughts?

Normally there is an entry in /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG
like
Code:
#PREFLIST: sometimes there are two hits, that is, two modules match the same
#'modalias' (that is, they are both claiming the same hardware). In such a case,
#here we can specify a preference. Each entry here is of the form
#'module1:module2' where module2 is the preferred choice.
#note, list needs a space char at beginning and at end.
#w471 removed: ath5k:ath_pci martian_dev:ltserial r8169:r8101
PREFLIST=' rtl8180:r8180 rtl8187:r8187 rt2500usb:rt73usb orinoco_nortel:hostap_plx orinoco_plx:hostap_plx orinoco_tmd:hostap_plx orinoco_pci:hostap_pci bcm43xx:ssb prism54:p54pci '
on puppy4
and additionally
Code:
#v432 Preference extensions for conditional activation.
PREFHSFALSA=" hsfmc97ali:snd_ali5451 hsfmc97ati:snd_atiixp-modem hsfmc97ich:snd_intel8x0m hsfmc97via:snd_via82xx-modem "
on puppy5

The Bootmanager in the Menu>System can be used to edit the MODULESCONFIG file [ command-line-interface name 'bootmanager' ] .

I would try to use the blacklist button to blacklist the 'snd_intel8x0m' at boot and the preference list button to add 'snd_intel8x0m:snd_intel8x0' at the first new line there .
Note : the lsmod command translates '-' of the drivers real name to '_' and here at the bootmanager you have to do so , too . I had not have to use the preflist or the skiplist button but the addlist button .

The modules loading at boot is written to /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit ; and in short rough words : udevd triggers /sbin/pup_event_backend_modprobe to check the MODULESCONFIG entries and finally do /sbin/modrobe a driver that is detected by the kernel who creates files for the bus|driver in the /sys directory . Creating files there does not automatically make the kernel loading the driver : rc.sysinit+udevd+pup_event_backend_modprobe+modprobe do load it . There are some other pup_event_backend_modprobe_* scripts in /sbin that may be used , too .

There may be also other drivers that are blocking something .

Useful commands are "rmmod" to remove a module manually and "alsactl --help" and "aplay -Ll" .

No Sound on Packard Bell F7280

Completed a frugal install of Puppy 525 on my hard disk to share the ntfs windows partition.
Had ALSA run to select the soundcard as Intel 8x0 AC97 codec combo.

I googled the sound issue the nearest I came to a solution was using the ALSA mixer to ensure Master & PCM are not muted or the intel 8x0 (7012) is an issue.

Any further information you need me to report back I can easily do say typing into urxvt.
Thanks
