Angry No Sound on Gigabyte Motherboard, Opensuse 11 OS


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!!!

"Azalia codec" is a general term and tells
nothing about the used components.

As amani writes, please open a terminal
and do command 'lspci' and copy / paste
the result to this page.

A terminal is a 'command promt'
To find a terminal :

*Menu > System > Terminal > "XTerm"

If you are using KDE Desktop, you have choices:
Bisides XTerm: Konsole and Gnome terminal.

Suse: the command is : /sbin/lspci

And the result of audio on my "Gigabyte, Azalia codec"

...Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW
(ICH6 Family) High Definition Audio Controller .....

amani says adjust mixer, give it a try, find any mixer
and unmute if muted + adjust volume.

Good Luck !

Well, the sound driver is "snd-hda-intel"
the command 'find /lib/modules/ -name *snd-hda-intel*
should print
/lib/modules/2.6.25.5-1.1-default/kernel/sound/pci/hda/snd-hda-intel.ko

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'

I hope you find the solution !
Regards

HI, Thank you!

1.How do I check if the module driver is loaded with the lsmod command?

2. How do I launch the kmix?

3. I am using the GNOME environment

Sorry for the trouble, if you can bear with me a bit more it will help.
Cheers

If the module shows up in any of the mentioned
commands, 'lsmod' , 'lsmod | less' or 'lsmod | grep intel'
the module is loaded.

In Gnome : Please use 'alsamixer' if you cannot find
the gnome-applets-mixer or the gnome-alsamixer.

Alsamixer is a mixer in the "terminal window"
( 'gnome-terminal' )

the alsamixer has four bars, each with 3 red units, 4 green and 4 white units repectively. Only the first one has two zeros which can be changed to m. All four says master at the bottom.

Is there anything I have missed?

Well, sound = 'snd_hda_intel' is loaded, and none
conflicting ones, AFAiK.

The alsamixer should have "lots" of bars in Suse 11,
just scroll to the right using the ==> right arrow ==>
on the keyboard. And make your terminal as wide as possible.
Also see #7 for info.

Good Luck !

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.

Cheers,

How about trying to let "Yeast2" set up your sound ?
(is done by install, but please give it a chance )

Also try 'su' #'alsaconf' to see what happens.

In the upper left corner of alsamixer, see text :
Should have 2 lines 1) Card .... 2) Chip ...
Any info there ??

4 bars in alsamixer ?? Should be 25....30 !

Regards

Hi,

I tried both Yast and alsaconf to configure the sound. It works, but two problems.

1. the volume has to be maximum on the volume control both on the speaker as well as on the software control. Still not loud enough.

2. Each time I shut down and re start I have to let alsaconf to configure sound again.

On the alsamixer the chip and card is both pulseaudio. BUt I am unable to open alsamixer after configuration. it says permission denied. Can open before configuration.

Some progress may be but no solution yet, I still have hope.

Cheers,
