No sound when mint installed
 
I have installed linux mint for the first time.
I use the on-board sound card.
My M/B is P5 ASUS P5GD2 DELUXE (i915, s775)



From the command asoundconf list I take
Intel


From lspci I have :

Do you have any suggestions?

I don't have this chipset for sound, but mine is close. See if the sound module has loaded:

lsmod |grep snd |grep intel

Mine is snd_hda_intel. I have "Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family)"

It could be that yours uses a different driver, but it should still have 'snd' and 'intel' in it; so start by seeing if there is a driver loaded.

I am a new user so I didn't understand exactly form what you said what to do.
Which command should I give?
And where will the answer be?

You gave the output of lspci; so I assume that you know you need to type the commands in a terminal, right?

See if the sound module has loaded:

Code:

lsmod |grep snd |grep intel
The output will be in the same terminal if there is any intel sound driver loaded.

First try simply:

Code:

lsmod
You will see a stream of output like you got for lspci. The grep commands that I put in are to limit the output. You could do it like this too. That would show everything with 'snd' in it:

Code:

lsmod |grep snd
Or if you do it like this, you can get a text file with the info in it:
Code:

lsmod |grep snd >lsmod-sound.txt
That would be handy if you would like to post the results here.

Thanks a lot.
I am not in my PC now,as soon as I can I am going to post the results

angelosbg 01-17-2009 01:41 PM

When I gave lsmod |grep snd |grep intel the results were the following

These are my results except for the last command which I gave it and I didn't see any text.I don't know what the results mean so please help.
If you need the last command I'll try more,if these results aren't enough.
I am a new user so I hope you understand..




Also when I tried "modprobe hda_intel" I had


FATAL: Module hda_intel not found.




.Does it mean anything?




Thanks a lot

modprobe snd-hda-intel

alsa modules are mostly prefixed with snd-

in either case your card should show up in /proc/asound/cards

cat /proc/asound/cards

The device associated with 0 is your default soundcard. Bearing in mind that not to long ago people only had 1 soundcard. These days, your usb microphone has a soundcard, your webcam has a soundcard, your motherboard has a soundcard, your video card has a soundcard, your modem has a soundcard, and you might even have a soundcard of your own. And it's not likely that the one you actually use got priority (0) by default. There are various ways to work around that, but not until we know more about your issue as it is today.
