No sound from ALSA


Alsa sound stopped working when I upgraded the kernel. Probably 2.6.19. Now on 2.6.20-1.2948.fc6 and alsa still does not produce any sound. OSS works.

I have mucked about with alsamixer etc. Collected some info. Have not much idea.

# modprobe -l | grep alsa
/lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/kernel/drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-alsa.ko
/lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/kernel/drivers/media/video/cx88/cx88-alsa.ko

# uname -a
2.6.20-1.2948.fc6 #1 SMP Fri Apr 27 19:48:40 EDT 2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

Yeah, well, did you compile the kernel yourself? If so you should probably just check over all the options under ALSA category and see that you didn't miss anything. Someone on this forums also recommended to put the ALSA related stuff in kernel modules as opposed to building it in the kernel.

I noticed you have alsamixergui installed, so these commands might not do anything, but it would not hurt to try em, (what I needed to do for my Debian Etch 64bit):
Code:
$ amixer set Master 100% unmute
$ amixer set PCM 100% unmute
EDIT: Also, I had problems with one of my other distributions, I found something that said some items need to be muted, sure enough after muting something that I did not need for lack of related hardware, I got sound.

yes - I put the gui on there as I remember a couple of years ago it was some obscure sound setting. Had to turn mic mute on in 'volume control'.

I can play cd's through oss, but no mp3 (etc).

You do realize Fedora cannot play mp3 from a fresh installation, you need non-free stuff etc. (I'm sure you're aware as you say it worked before upgrading the kernel). Anyway, Mauriat has a couple possibly usefull links on his page (link below), one is for alsa drivers, other for mp3 players.

Upgraded to fc7. Still:

- sound card detector plays the test sound. Can play cd.
- sound preferences gnome-sound-properties does not play test sounds except through OSS.
- mplayer /usr/share/sounds/pidgin/logout.wav does not play a sound.

I hunted through the doc - I guess the 00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01) is supported. Hard to tell from the ALSA matrix.

The only vague hint I can get is from dmesg:
'application gnome-sound-pro uses obsolete OSS audio interface'

google seems to know nothing about this.

perhaps there are things running in conflict?

Kernel seems to have every conceivable thing in it:
