Still Problems with i810_audio


Okay I figured out that I do have sound on my laptop, I figured this out by plugging headphones into the microphone jack and I get sound.

I checked the volume for the microphone and it is muted and the volume is off.

Is there any way I can route it to the speakers??

Thanks

Are you using ALSA sound system with Debian? If so make sure you have checked all possible channels (unmuting and turning up) in an ALSA compatible mixer like alsamixer.

I have onboard intel sound and the speaker output appears on the 'surround' channel.

I installed the gnome-mixer and there i can better see what channels used,
I also have the headphone on the sourrunds channel.
i also got dmix running to have multiple sounds running at the same time,
but in xmms the sound goes over into noize after 10 minutes.
And i didnīt found the mic plug.

Alsa mixer

Well, alsamixer has about 50 more settings than gnome-mixer, so I would try that. One note, not all the setting are immediately apparent when you run alsamixer - you have to scroll to the right to see them. "m" unmutes a channel, and after you have everything set, hit "esc" to exit. After that, type, as root, alsactl store to store the settings.

Hope this helps

Paul

I have tried unmuting in alsamixer and still nothing, also I've set the permissions for the /dev/mixer and /dev/dsp, can't really think of anything else to do. I've read about every post on here about the intel onboard sound chip.

Thanks for help

Well, this is something I had to do to my Slack system, so you can try it. In the file /etc/group, I added the group 'users' and my user group to the 'sys' group:

sys::3:root,bin,adm,paul,users

Not sure if this an issue with your system, but I don't think it will hurt. Also, here is a link I found on Intel's site, but it isn't much:

http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/linux/audio.htm

Sorry I am not able to help much more than that.

Thanks for help, so have there been any patches released for the audio

I know that my sound card is the ICH5/R (82801EB. I've already compiled my kernel to get my ATI Radeon 9600 working, I compiled sound in as a module and my i810_audio in as a module.

I have also read that this might be a problem with apm, and that I would need to use acpi?? any thoughts

Thanks for the help

Well, not sure about the apm/acpi issue, but if you have read it might be a problem, it's worth investigating I suppose. Just a w.a.g. - have you unmuted the AC'97 channels in alsamixer? My sound card shows them because I have on-board audio, even though I don't use it. Just a thought...

Yeah I have everything unmuted

I found this link on google linux about a kernel patch

http://www.ussg.iu.edu/hypermail/lin...07.0/0389.html

this seems to be for the ad1886 sound card, would possibly it be universal for the other ac97 codecs. Just a thought.
