No Sound Audio In Ubuntu Hardware OK


Please help



The problem I'm having is. I Get no sound when playing music in vlc or any other player like Mplayer in Ubuntu.

the motherboard is a jetway j7f4 board.

The OS is Ubuntu Linux mythbuntu 8.10 debian version - lenny/sid.

I tested the machine on a live puppy linux cd it all works fine.

So It's definetly a problem in ubuntu.

this is what I have done so far.

I had a look at this web site.
http://www.seopher.com/articles/how_...op_or_notebook

And they said to disable the external amplifier tick box, and it should solve the problem.
But it didn't.

So then I had a look at this web site.

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...light=no+sound

And I was able to get these details on my sound card.

# aplay -l

Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: V8237 [VIA 8237], device 0: VIA 8237 [VIA 8237]
Subdevices: 4/4
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
Subdevice #2: subdevice #2
Subdevice #3: subdevice #3
card 0: V8237 [VIA 8237], device 1: VIA 8237 [VIA 8237]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Lspci -v

Code:
00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT8233/A/8235/8237 A C97 Audio Controller (rev 60)
Subsystem: Jetway Information Co., Ltd. Device 4765

I/O ports at ee00 [size=256]
Capabilities: [c0] Power Management version 2

Is alsa working correctly?? Try running alsaconf from command line. It would also help if you posted the type of computer you are having the issue with. if it's a desktop the answer could be as simple as disabling your onboard sound in the bios

I managed to fix the original problem with the internal soundcard.

I install a new mixer gui and now the internal sound card is working.

however the sound quality is really poor.

So I have disabled the internal soundcard and connected a Egosys U2A USB soundcard to the PC.

This soundcard is supposed to be linux compatable. but I am unable to get it to work.
The sound card has power but there is no sound.

I have tried the aplay -l and no device is listed.

I have also tried the Lspci -v command but I am unable to see the soundcard listed.
if i run lsusb I get this

# lsusb

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

Is there anything I can do to improve the sound quality with the internal soundcard.

Or how do I get the USB sound card to install properly.

Has anyone any idea's I can try.

Don't know if you've tried visiting the mfg's site for the linux driver. If the card is supposed to be linux compatible they should have a driver for it or, if you received a driver disk with the soundcard have a browse through it and see if there is a linux folder.
