Thread: No sound from speakers headphones work

  1. #1

    Default No sound from speakers headphones work

    I try to get sound out of the speakers of my HP dv4305us laptop. I researching the web for a while but couldn't find any help. There are a lot of helps for the snd-hda-intel regarding that problem but I seem to have an ICH6 snd-intel8x0 sound chip.I just installed openSuse and sound work afterwards. Then I installed mplayer from source and the issue occured.

    /etc/modprobe.d/sound

    options snd-intel8x0 buggy_irq=1 buggy_semaphore=1
    options snd slots=snd-intel8x0
    # r0Vg.KyB45pyNxDC:82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller
    alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0

    alsa setup is here

    http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=53...e398e97445cc02

    What can I do to fix it? Thanks a lot. BTW I'm more a newby then a expert.

    I do not know exactly what is needed. But I note this:
    Code:
    !!ALSA Version
    !!------------
    Driver version:     1.0.21-git20091014
    Library version:    
    Utilities version:  1.0.18
    A misbalance of the driver and utilities might contribute to the problem.

    I also note this:
    Code:
    options snd-intel8x0 buggy_irq=1 buggy_semaphore=1
    options snd slots=snd-intel8x0
    # r0Vg.KyB45pyNxDC:82801FB/FBM/FR/FW/FRW (ICH6 Family) AC'97 Audio Controller
    alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
    Is buggy_irq=1 buggy_semaphore=1 necessary?

    Can you provide the output of:
    Code:
    rpm -qa '*alsa*'

    rpm -qa '*alsa*'
    alsa-utils-1.0.18-6.4

    alsa-oss-1.0.17-1.37

    I don't think buggy_irq=1 buggy_semaphore=1 is necessary I just played with it to naybe get it going but doesn't make any difference.

    I recommend you remove alsa-driver-unstable-kmp-pae-1.0.21.20091014_2.6.27.7_9.1-2.1

    I also recommend you remove the line from your /etc/modprobe.d/sound file:
    Code:
    options snd-intel8x0 buggy_irq=1 buggy_semaphore=1
    (it can always be put back in if needed).

    Do NOT keep backup files in /etc/modprobe.d/ directory, as they may be called automatically, even if you give them a funny file name. Keep backups outside of that directory.

    Then with your PC connected to the internet, in a terminal with root permissions, I recommend you copy and paste and send the following six zypper commands in sequence, one at a time:
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/libs/openSUSE_11.1/ multimedia01
    Code:
    zypper install alsa alsa-docs alsa-utils alsa-firmware alsa-plugins alsa-plugins-pulse alsa-tools alsa-oss libasound2
    Code:
    zypper rr multimedia01
    Code:
    zypper ar http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/multimedia:/audio:/KMP/openSUSE_11.1/ multimedia02
    Code:
    zypper install alsa-driver-kmp-pae
    Code:
    zypper rr multimedia02

    clearly the update failed. You still have the wrong version of alsa-utils, alsa-firmware, alsa, alsa-plugins, alsa-plugins-pulse, alsa-tools, alsa-docs, alsa-oss.

    You MUST have had an error message after the second zypper command.

    Now I'm confused. This time I deleted all alsa packages with Yast first. rpm -qa '*alsa*' show nothing afterwards. So I went ahead and did all the zyppers as you recommended. But now I have the same stuff back.

    linux-r7la:/home/psy/Documents # rpm -qa '*alsa*'
    alsa-plugins-1.0.18-6.12
    alsa-firmware-1.0.17-1.42
    alsa-driver-kmp-pae-1.0.21.20091024_2.6.27.7_9.1-1.1
    alsa-utils-1.0.18-6.4
    alsa-docs-1.0.18-8.12.1
    alsa-plugins-pulse-1.0.18-6.12
    alsa-tools-1.0.18-1.13
    alsa-1.0.18-8.12.1
    alsa-oss-1.0.17-1.37

    Where does it get that from?

    The command I provided looks correct. What you ended up doing was installing off of either the CD/DVD or the OSS directory. Its likely because you have a very high priority for the CD/DVD or the OSS directory. Go to YaST > Software > Software Repositories, and give OSS a very high number. Then try again to install those applications.

    You can check your repositories, and their priority by typing:
    zypper lr -d

    Oh ya I had the DVD in the drive. Is that what you expected

    linux-r7la:/home/psy # rpm -qa '*alsa*'

    alsa-1.0.18-8.12.1
    alsa-firmware-1.0.20-5.1
    alsa-plugins-pulse-1.0.21-17.3

    mplayer now plays sound over speaker and headphone but no other program does anything e.g. firefox has no sound at all (it did before)

    Going from runlevel 1 to runlevel 2 I get the message services failed in runlevel 2 - alsasound. As well when KDE comes up a windows pops up shortly saying - Phonon -> Ich6 .... not working switch to default.

    So, headphones work now? Congratulations !!

    This could be a different problem. To play sound in firefox I have flash-player installed and the depreciated mplayerplug-in installed (others use gecko-mediaplayer). You may find it necessary to remove libflashsupport (but keep flash-player) to get sound working in firefox. Also test more than one web site.

    What other media players give no sound?

    Thats a known bug I believe. There are a more than a few threads here, where users have posted solutions that worked for them: I think I've seen other "solutions" as well, but a quick search did not reveal it (I probably had the wrong search parameters).
