Exclamation Need Advice on Mandriva 2009.0


Hi all,

Can any one point me in the right direction.......

I have installed mandriva 2009.0 free onto a Dell Latitude E5500, dual booting with winxp (every device are operational here) , however this is not the case with mandriva 2009.0; display=ok, wifi= ok, sound=No??

The output from lspci tels me it's;

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)

I have also carried out the following:

1.) Using the latest ALSA drivers for mandriva 2009.0, followed the example in the link below;

http://www.linlap.com/wiki/configuri...andriva+2008.0

2.) Have ran the Mandriva Linux Control Centre, hardware, sound configuration utility.

3.) I have also used the # alsaconf, utility


Still No Sound, can any one point me in the direction of light & enlightenment.


Many thanks in advice.

We had a similar question a few days ago..so we'll see if I can go 2 for 2 with sound. On your volume control, right click it, select open volume control. Make sure nothing is muted. Go to edit in the volume control and select preferences. Make sure everything is checked. Check the volume control again and make sure nothing is muted. It sucks, and I've felt like a moron for missing it a few times, but sometimes that's all that is wrong.

Hi dolphans1,

I have tried:

3.) I have also used the # alsaconf, utility,

Which I think is the same utility, still no sound.

Thanks for in-put.

Hi jolphil,

Where can I read the backround information on the above mentioned BUGS#;

Is it by any chance the Mandriva main support site??

Thumbs up

Hi All,

I have managed to get the sound working, after re-reading the Bug#44855 and Bug#44727 from the link, provided by Jolphil, I reformatted the linux partition of the hard disk, re-installed Mandriva 2009.0 (attaching the Dell E5500 to a physical network connection), than updated the newly installed Mandriva 2009.0 with the latest updates.

Many thanks to all for your in-put:-)
