VIA Envy sound chip and DragonRise gamepad on kernels 3.x and 4.x (mint and lubuntu) problems


Hi there,
I got a problem with 2 distros at the moment.... These codes are from my linux mint 17.3 rosa (kernel 3.x) install
in this install, my joystick (dragonrise) is not recognized properly.... there is even a bug report about it, but I'm not an expert to fix it (https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugr...cgi?bug=785606)

also on this install, my sound card (VIA envy chip) work only after I force a bug on alsamixer multitrack (changing from 48000 to ice [breaks playback], than changing back to 48000). After its working, logging out and in keeps it working, but with a full pc reset I need to bug it again every log-in.....

Now... on my lubuntu lxle (kernel 4.x) install, the dragonrise joystick works out of the box... not perfectly but totally usable (still minor conflics on the analogs, but works) it is detected with same name and ID, but with 7 axis instead of 6 like in linux mint.

The VIA sound tho.... I cant get it to work on lubuntu.... even trying to reproduce the same alsamixer bug I use on linux mint, its still gives no sound.

If needed be, I'll switch to lubuntu to get the lsusb etc too

so the problem is...
mint -> sound if I force a bug every restart... no joystick
lubuntu -> no sound at all, joystick works....

driving me crazy!!!

Hi,
just a quick hints:
- look in mint in the output of "dmesg" what it says about the audio module. Maybe you see some parameters or just the kernel module responsible.
- look in /etc/modules and /etc/modprobe.d/* if the kernel module is mentioned there. Again, looking for parameters to the module
- in lubuntu:
modprobe -r <kernel-module-found-in-mint>
modinfo <module>
modprobe <module>

Post the output of these commands.

HTH,
Upuetz
