Thread: Realtek HD Sound Driver Install

  1. #1

    Default Realtek HD Sound Driver Install

    I have no Sound. (no proper driver)
    The onboard SoundCard = HD Audio Codec from Realtek.
    I have Downloaded the Linux drivers.
    But there is no installing instruction on the Site.
    And my experiments are not a succes.

    Ideas. Pleas.

    No need typically to download linux drivers. Your openSUSE comes with alsa sound drivers, and typically all that is needed is to configure those.

    Try working your way through the openSUSE audio troubleshooting guide: SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE

    To test if your sound is working, I recommend you try copy and pasting the following into a gnome-terminal or a kde konsole:
    speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav
    you should hear a lady's voice saying "front-left", "front-right" five times.

    If that does not work, then to provide more information, with your PC connected to the internet copy and paste the following into a gnome-terminal or konsole:
    Code:
    wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh && bash alsa-info.sh
    When the script completes it will pass you a URL. Please post that URL here.

    Also, please copy and paste the following into a gnome-terminal or konsole and post the output here.
    rpm -qa | grep alsa
    rpm -qa | grep pulse
    rpm -q libasound2
    uname -a
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound

    Once I have that information, I believe I may be able to provide helpful recommendation(s).

    Could you copy and pasting the following to a kde konsole or a gnome-terminal:
    dmesg > dmesg.txt && curl -F file=@dmesg.txt nopaste.com/a
    That will give you a URL. Please post the output URL here.

    Then after that, try updating your alsa. Please with your PC connected to the internet, open a gnome-terminal or kde konsole, and type "su" (no quotes - enter root password when prompted for a password), and then copy and paste into that terminal the following commands, one line at a time:
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio/openSUSE_11.0/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa alsa-oss alsa-oss-32bit alsa-plugins alsa-utils alsa-tools alsa-firmware libasound2
    Code:
    zypper rr multimedia
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio:/KMP/openSUSE_11.0_Update/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa-driver-kmp-default
    Code:
    zypper rr multimedia
    Then reboot your PC, and test your sound. Check your mixer.

    If sound is still not working, please post run the diagnostic script again.

    Please also confirm you have sound switched ON in your PC's BIOS.

    The Bios was oke, It would surprise me because Vista has no problem with the card

    linux-l0le:~ # dmesg > dmesg.txt && curl -F file=@dmesg.txt nopaste.com/a
    dmesg.txt - nopaste.com (beta)

    After the Reboot I had some welcome Sound but the systen is still thinking there is no Sound.

    linux-l0le:~ # speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

    speaker-test 1.0.18

    Playback device is plug:front
    Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 2 channels
    WAV file(s)
    Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
    Buffer size range from 64 to 16384
    Period size range from 32 to 8192
    Using max buffer size 16384
    Periods = 4
    was set period_size = 4096
    was set buffer_size = 16384
    0 - Front Leftlinux-l0le:~ # speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav

    After this command the Console crashed. (strange)

    This is good. ... Your sound card is now recognized.

    I can see your sound hardware audio codec is identified as an ALC883.

    I also note you have your surround and center controls off in your mixer. I don't know if that matters but it is something to consider.

    I recommend you run "alsaconf" with root permissions, then test your soudn again. If that fails, then please post here output of
    cat /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    and let me know what type of PC you have. (model, make ... etc ..)

    OK, and what was the result of my last recommendation? Specifically:
