Toshiba laptop sound problem


Hi All,

I was wondering if someone could help me with the sound on my laptop. It is a Toshiba 1415-s173. When I configured alsa I get no sound. I have Slackware 10.0 running just fine on my desktop but for some reason I can't seem to get the sound working on this laptop. I don't want to be forced to use another distro on my laptop as I love Slackware but I need sound. Thanks for any responses!

Greg

P.S. Just thought I would add that the soundcard is a YAMAHA AC-XG Audio Device. Maybe someone has a laptop with one of these.

You might find some help here.

Yeah...I ran alsaconf as root. When I try and run alsamixer I get a message saying: No mixer elems found.
Other distros seem to work just fine. Everything looks good when I run alsaconf so I am not sure what exactly the problem is. I looked online to try and find someone who had installed Slackware on a similar computer but couldn't find any. That is why I came here. Thanks for any help.

Same here with the intel-8x0m... I always just reinstall the driver from source and configure it for just my soundcard...

./configure --with-cards=intel8x0

This seems to remove the m modules... you may have to modprobe snd-pcm-oss after doing this though.

Thanks lupin_the_3rd and jdvelasquezs,

I really appreciate your feedback. I will try your ideas. I ended up installing Fedora on my laptop after I posted this email but I am looking forward to going back to Slack. Fedora is a good distro but there is nothing quite like Slackware. Thanks again for taking the time to share your ideas.

Question 2.6.7 kernel - No Hotplug Blacklist?

I was using Slack10 with 2.4 stock kernel...

(1) I had to add snd_intel8x0m the the /etc/hotplug/blacklist...
(2) Add to restart (cannot remove the module without restarting)
(3) Did alsaconf from root to reconfigure alsa with good audio setting...
(4) Audio was fine... That worked very well...

Now that i've installed kernel 2.6.7 (from Slack10 install CDs), the /etc/hotplug/blacklist doesn't seem to affect the hotplug script at startup (or does the 2.6.7 kernel really work with hotplug???)... The module is always loaded at boot...

I had to rename the kernel module snd-intel8x0m.ko (in the directory /lib/modules/2.6.7/kernel/sound/pci) to snd-intel8x0m.ko.bak... Which prevent the kernel to load the module...

Is there someone who knows why this BLACKLIST file doesn't work anymore on 2.6.7 kernel?

Regards,
