Thread: Another person with no sound in 11.1

  1. #1

    Unhappy Another person with no sound in 11.1

    In Opensuse 9.1 - 11 I was getting sound with this system. However, I am not getting sound after having installed 11.1 32 bit.

    THis is a clean install, however, I did import my list of installed software from the previous 11.0 install and I left the /home partition unformatted. If any of that makes a difference.

    So far I have done this:

    Made sure the onboard sound chip is turned on in in bios (really shouldn't have had to check this but I did) - the sound chip is on.
    verified that speakers are properly plugged in.

    Followed the steps on SDB:AudioTroubleshooting - openSUSE.

    overview: did it and passed

    Step 1: terminal seems to indicate that sound is going out but I hear nothing.

    Step 2: While trying to call up the volume adjustment yast crashes and I get the following error:

    YaST got signal 11 at YCP file Wizard.ycp:743
    /sbin/yast2: line 437: 6861 Segmentation fault $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS

    Don't know if it is worthwhile continueing but I went to the next step.


    step 3:I ran the scripts with the output stored here http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=0f...4816f7500930ec

    and

    tsalsa.txt - nopaste.com (beta)


    I don't know what all might be wrong with the sound but from what I have been able to figure out Phonon is not set up correctly. Or is the problem that Pulseaudio is not running? or both?


    Well that is what I have been able to find out.


    HELP!

    OK, thanks for running the scripts. A seg fault is never nice, as it indicates typically some sort of memory problem.

    Still, I note this in your mixer:
    Amixer contents for card 0 [V8237] _____________________________________
    amixer set 'Exchange Front/Surround',0 off
    amixer set 'External Amplifier',0 on
    Did you try switching the external amp OFF, and switch the Surround ON ? I don't know if that will make a difference, but it is something I would try.

    What happens when you run:
    su -c 'rcalsasound restart'
    Does that successfully restart your sound? Does the sound test work after that? Do this sound (speaker) test in a konsole (try as both a regular user and also as user root):
    speaker-test -c2 -l5 -twav

    Did you install alsa-firmware? If not, please do so, reboot your PC and test your audio.

    Reference the seg fault, can you with your PC connected to the Internet, copy and paste the following command into a gnome terminal or kde konsole:
    dmesg > dmesg.txt && curl -F file=@dmesg.txt nopaste.com/a
    and then post the URL that you are given. Sometimes that gives some hints.

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

    There is no surround sound to turn on or off.
    I have A set of speakers hooked to the computer and the amplifier was never on.

    su -c 'rcalsasound restart'

    yes that is covered in the overview so I had already checked that before hand.

    Do I read this correctly? Is it correct that you do not have libasound2 installed? If not, please install this application. It is needed.

    Your sound should be working. I do note there were some recent updates to the alsa sound driver affecting the AD1980. Its possible one of them affected your software/driver configuration of your audio hardware.

    The only thing I can think of is for you to try updating your alsa to the latest version, to see if that has a fix for the problem you have encountered.

    You can do that update by opening a gnome terminal or kde konsole, type "su" (no quotes, enter root password when prompted) and then carefully copy and paste the following 6 zypper commands one at a time in sequence while your PC is connected to the internet:
    Code:
     zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio/openSUSE_11.1/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa alsa-devel alsa-oss alsa-plugins-maemo alsa-utils alsa-tools alsa-plugins-samplerate alsa-tools-debuginfo alsa-plugins-pulse alsa-plugins-jack alsa-debuginfo alsa-plugins alsa-docs alsa-tools-gui alsa-firmware libasound2
    Code:
     zypper rr multimedia
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio:/KMP/openSUSE_11.1/ multimedia
    Code:
    zypper install alsa-driver-kmp-default
    Code:
    zypper rr multimedia
    then restart your PC and test your sound with the speaker-test I noted above.

    This suggests your sound is working. You should hear a lady's voice saying 'FRONT LEFT','FRONT RIGHT' at the same time. Do you hear that?
