Angry Audio not working on Debian, only "card" is dummy output.


I am having issues with my audio. It works fine in Windows 10 and Linux Mint 17-18.

I was able to get my graphics card drivers installed with non-free packages.

In VLC all I get is a dummy output. And alsamixer does not give a listing of any audio cards.

Hi...

If you would, please open a terminal and post the results of these commands...

Code:
lspci -nnk | grep -i -A7 audio
Code:
lsmod | grep snd
Code:
aplay -l
Code:
lshw | grep -A11 multimedia
Code:
dmesg | grep -iC 3 "snd"
Also, please post a screenshot of alsamixer's results. This will give us a better idea of your sound chip and possibly help us determine the issue.

Regards...

Hi...

So far, although for different versions of Debian, the only two solutions I'm seeing that come relatively close to your issue can be found here...

https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDe.../AspireOne_722

http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/har...tml#post920170

They may very easily not resolve your issue, so try them at your own risk!

Regards...

Something is messed up with the kernel module:
Code:
!!ALSA Version
!!------------
Driver version:     
Library version:    1.0.28
Utilities version:  1.0.28
As root, try this:
Code:
modprobe -v snd-hda-intel
You may also need to reinstall the kernel image package.
