Thread: AsusTEk/Intel sound card, Open SUse 10.2 No sound

  1. #1

    Default AsusTEk/Intel sound card, Open SUse 10.2 No sound

    Hello,

    I am administering one OpenSuse 10.2 machine and I tried the several tests to check what is the problem with sound.
    When I do
    rpm -qa --last | grep alsa

    I get this output:

    alsa-tools-gui-1.0.14-0.pm.0 Sun 06 Jul 2008 04:55:34 PM CEST
    alsa-tools-1.0.14-0.pm.0 Sun 06 Jul 2008 04:55:29 PM CEST
    alsa-firmware-1.0.14-0.pm.0 Sun 06 Jul 2008 04:55:20 PM CEST

    alsa-plugins-1.0.12-30 Sun 06 Jul 2008 04:54:59 PM CEST
    alsa-1.0.14a-0.pm.7 Sun 06 Jul 2008 04:53:36 PM CEST

    When I do lsmod:
    lsmod | grep snd
    I get this output:
    snd 73476 0
    soundcore 26080 1 snd

    With alsa script for checkin alsa I got this:

    wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
    general pastebin - tigerspirit - post number 1063858

    When I have done:
    su -c 'wget -O tsalsa wget http://home.cfl.rr.com/infofiles/tsalsa && bash tsalsa'

    I got output on:

    tsalsa.txt - nopaste.com (beta)

    please advise.

    When I have done: ... tsalsa ... I got output on:

    It does not appear your alsa is being completely reported.
    # Driver version: 1.0.12rc1
    # Library version: 1.0.9
    # Utilities version: 1.0.14
    Have you rebooted since installing/updating to those alsa versions noted in the rpm command? .... If you have rebooted since updating, then it is clear your sound card is not detected by alsa. Perhaps the quickest way to proceed os for you to update you alsa. Please with your PC connected to the internet, copy and paste and execute the following commands (one line at a time in the exact sequence) into an xterm/konsole (with root permissions):
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio/openSUSE_10.2/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa alsa-utils alsa-tools alsa-tools-gui alsa-firmware libasound2
    Code:
    zypper rr multimedia
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio:/KMP/openSUSE_10.2/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa-driver-kmp-bigsmp
    Code:
    zypper rr multimedia
    Please then reboot, and test/configure your sound.

    I recommend the following as a test (copy and paste into an xterm/konsole)
    speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

    Note, the above is for a 2.6.18.2-34-bigsmp kernel. If you were to update to the kernel 2.6.18.8_0-default #1 BIG SMP, then your sound will be broken again.

    That is likely either because you don't have root permissions, or because are typing it wrong. Please copy and paste instead, so that you don't make a mistake.
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio/openSUSE_10.2/ multimedia
    Ensure your PC is connected to the internet. Also ensure you have root permissions in the xterm/konsole first.

    ... I've been pondering this ... another possibility is zypper for 10.2 works differently than zypper for 10.3 and 11.0. ... You could also try the following:


    Please with your PC connected to the internet, copy and paste and execute the following commands (one line at a time in the exact sequence) into an xterm/konsole (with root permissions):
    Code:
    zypper sa http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio/openSUSE_10.2/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa alsa-utils alsa-tools alsa-tools-gui alsa-firmware libasound2
    Code:
    zypper sd multimedia
    Code:
    zypper sa http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio:/KMP/openSUSE_10.2/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa-driver-kmp-bigsmp
    Code:
    zypper sd multimedia
    Please then reboot, and test/configure your sound.

    Thanks for sharing your solution. I updated the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide accordingly, with that correction to the zypper command. Thanks for verifying the correction.
