snd-intel8x0, alsamixer and more


Hi!
I've searched this forum for answers and many threads is related but doesn't have this question so I decided to add a new...

Problem:
I can't unmute my sound? I can't even run 'alsamixer'?

Info and questions:
Code:
bash-3.00# alsamixer
No mixer elems found
(This was under su)

I choose snd-intel8x0 in alsaconfig, can this be the modems sound? If so how do I change it to snd-intel8x1? Someone said "add it to blacklist in hotplug" but I didn't figure that out =(

I have ran the alsaconfig command though at it seems to work fine. I use a IBM T30 laptop and many other distros have worked fine. I also use kde so I started Kmix who also says that no mixer can be found. What does that mean? It can't find sound card or what?

Thanks in advance!

Ran into a similar problem with a buddy of mine. This was a while back but I think my memory serves correct.

For some reason slack was loading both the intel8x0 and intel8x1 modules, and they appeared to be in conflict with each other. The solution (again, if memory serves) was to find the entry for intel8x1 in the /etc/blacklist file and remove the # in front of it. This will prevent slack from loading that particular module at boot up and then only the intel8x0 should load and that should allow your card to work.

Good luck!

....and the file to edit is /etc/hotplug/blacklist
just add the modules you don't want.

Thanks!

It sounded great so I tried it but my blacklist didn't include them? So I decided to add first snd-intel8x1 and rebooted and it didn't work so I tried the other one and it didn't work either =( Did I not write it right or what could be wrong? Maybe it should be only intel8x0? I even run alsaconf again after the reboot....

Is it something I should add to rc.local?

I should've added.

alsamixer -c1 and that would've saved you a reboot.

i'm glad they fixed the problem in Current. I was once asking on this forum how I could post this bug to get Pat and his team to correct the problem and the reply I got was that it wasn't a bug, that its just one of the things you have to manually configure after installation!?

Well, that's technically true, but why not get it fixed when so many people have had this problem with the snd-intel8x0m module? If we accept the argument that it isn't bug, why dont we just leave all bugs in place because users can configure the system after installation.

Well done Pat for fixing this problem.
