Crackling and intermittent sound with realtek ALC889


lspci:
PHP Code:
00:1b.0 Audio deviceIntel Corporation 82801JI (ICH10 FamilyHD Audio Controller 
Hi all, I've had a snap, crackle, pop coming from my speakers since I put this machine together, even now, with no reason for any sound to be coming from the speakers. Additionally, the crackling only becomes worse when I play ANY audio regardless of player or source, however the sound does just drop for a few seconds and then back and then off again when there is SUPPOSED to be audio. I understand not working at all, but "kinda" working is more confusing.

I'm running slack64 with the with an updated kernel from current, even though the rest of the machine is stock 13_64. The problem was the same with the original 2.6.29.6 kernel.

Any thoughts?

By default the snd-hda-intel module tries to automatically determine your hardware.
This may not be appropriate for your hardware.
http://www.kernel.org/doc/Documentat...dio-Models.txt shows a large number of possible models for the ALC889.

You can setup a file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf and include a specific model e.g.
Code:
options snd-hda-intel model=<some model name>
I found that I needed to use this technique to get the headphone socket working correctly on my desktop.

I think you might have been correct. I had crisp high quality sound this morning before work, but my tinker bug and I had a rough day and haven't sat down for a proper test. I'll be testing properly tomorrow.

P.S.
The link is awesome. I didn't know such documentation existed. That's going to come in handy down the road.

Thanks

I honestly don't remember and the file mentioned above no longer exists. I can't even remember if I've reinstalled since then or if it got deleted somewhere along the road to -current. Apparently it's no longer an issue.
