I am using onboard sound from Gigabyte S-series ultradurable 2 Motherboard. (GA-P35-DS3L/S3L). I am running on Opensuse 11 operating system. Is it possible to get the drivers for this? on 'Integrated Peripherals' the Azalia codec seems to be on Auto. I do not know what else to check. BTW I built the pc myself. Anyone please help!!!
Distribution: pclos2015, Slack14.1 DebJessie, + 50+ other Linux OS, for test only.
Well, the sound driver is "snd-hda-intel"
the command 'find /lib/modules/ -name *snd-hda-intel*
See if the module (driver) is loaded with command
'lsmod' or 'lsmod | less' and 'lsmod | grep intel'
And please also do 'lsmod | grep 97'
(for the 'snd_ac97_codec' included in some Giga
motherboards ...for the front panel.
Launch "Kmix" : the used driver is displayed in Kmix.
All "buttons" should show mute.
On my Dell 8300 Kmix says : Intel ICH5
(I can't run Suse 11 live on the "Giga computer"
("no DVD-ROM drive found"))
And please check the following in 'alsamixer'
(Can be opened in 'konsole')
The "buttons" ..Master .. Master M .. PCM .. CD ..
..External .. High Pass .. <V_REFOUT> should show
as default (and with normal sound) a red square
with 2 zeroes (for unmuted) Other unused functions
will show an m. To mute or unmute type m.
Move to the next button with arrow keys
If you change something in 'alsamixer' , you want
to keep, save with command 'su' and # 'alsactl store'
Hi, Thank you. The alsamixer has only four bars, however big the screen is. Do you reckon that something is missing, resulting in the disappearence of the bars. I tried the arrow keys, scrolling etc no results.
