Slackware 13.37 audio setup seems fine, no sound


The system is Slackware 13.37, multilib. My problem is that I'm getting no sound from the speakers or headphones.
I'll just cut to the chase and (hopefully) give the relevant information.

lspci -k | grep -iA3 audio:

Alsaconf seems to go through without a hitch and alsamixer looks, well, it looks like it should. But I have no sound.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I'm truly stumped, but suspect the answer may be staring me in the face.

Have you seen this thread? http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-sound-890844/ The link in Daedra's post#3 of that thread is also informative.

I saw the thread but didn't look into it since it seemed specific to flash sound.
Something else I noticed in my syslog that may or may not be related:

I should have mentioned - Welcome to LQ!

To me, the syslog entries are reflecting that the snd-hda-intel module has been associated with your nVidia audio, which is obviously incorrect.

Editing /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf seems to be required to get the appropriate kernel modules associated with each sound device together with appropriate module options.

I'm still trying to puzzle this one out.

I tried adding snd_hda_codec_hdmi to the blacklist, still no sound.

alsaconf resulted in this:
Code:

It seemed to think it worked, but again, no sound.

alsaconf (again rewriting sound.conf) gives me this at the end again:

No joy with any of these. This entry in syslog remains consistent: "hda-intel: IRQ timing workaround is activated for card #0. Suggest a bigger bdl_pos_adj."
Thanks for the welcome allend, but I'm not entirely new here. I used to post under exluddite, but I no longer use the email that I registered with so couldn't reset my password.

Please tell us the make and model of your machine. You may need to supply an option to the snd-hda-intel kernel module.

I built the system myself. The motherboard is an Asus P8P67 rev. 3.0. I'm using (well, trying to!) the onboard audio, chipset is Realtek ALC892, 8 channel. The Nvidia that is coming up is an EVGA GT430 video card.

Following the suggestion in the last post at this link http://www.linux-archive.org/gentoo-...correctly.html I would try with this line in /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf
Code:
options snd-intel-hda model=auto,auto enable_msi=1,0 index=0,1 id=Intel,NVidia
It may pay to delete /var/lib/alsa/asound.state, reboot and rerun alsaconf after making the change.

Ok, this seems to be the winner. I also added "irqpoll" to lilo due to what I've been seeing in my syslog. Quite honestly I'm not sure which was the solution since I did both. I did notice that when I ran alsaconf, it deleted "options snd-intel-hda model=auto,auto enable_msi=1,0 index=0,1 id=Intel,NVidia" that allend suggested I add to sound.conf. Maybe it passes those parameters and then rewrites the file?
Thanks to allend for all the help.

Hello guys,

I have a pretty same issue , with the my on board sound (Intel).
The story is as follow :
I re-install my slackware 13.37 (x86) in my desktop . The /home partition didn't formatted, i keep the same user folder with the old user configuration files.
I didn't install the kde packages.
I have no sound with the new installation.
The alsaconf cannot see the on board sound card and the sound.conf is missing from /etc/modprobe.d

here are some help info

lspci -k|grep -iA3 audio

@mpregos - I have no experience with your device, but if it was working before the reinstall then I suggest try the advice from our BDFL. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...5/#post4289480
Your device used to require options for the snd-hda-intel kernel module, but it is my understanding that this is no longer necessary. The output you posted suggests that your device is being recognised and appropriate kernel modules are being loaded.
