Thread: ASUS Xonar DS Issues

    Default ASUS Xonar DS Issues

    Linux newbie here. I've played around with live cds and this is my first true install.
    I've been trying everything possible to get my Xonar DS sound card working for the past couple hours and had absolutely no luck.

    I read a very similar thread, albeit somewhat old, and tried to follow the same process but it didn't lead me anywhere. Here are some diagnostics about what i've done so far.

    It is just about bedtime here in Austin, but I have a script file that might be helpful you can try.

    S.T.A.R.T. - SuSE Terminal Audio Reporting Tool

    There is an alsa test script you will want to try and post its output online for others to see. oldcpu, one of our moderators may be the most helpful with audio and will surely see your post and try to help and so good luck and good night.

    Thank You,

    Thank you very much.

    Here is the output from running option 5. This doesn't look right..

    5 . Checking your audio setup in four steps for detailed information ...

    Command: cat /proc/asound/version

    cat: /proc/asound/version: No such file or directory

    Command: cat /proc/asound/modules

    cat: /proc/asound/modules: No such file or directory

    Command: cat /proc/asound/cards

    cat: /proc/asound/cards: No such file or directory

    Command: cat /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf

    options snd slots=snd-virtuoso,snd-hda-intel
    # 2Oa+.h2kiZ7VIR82:Sapphire HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI-E Dual Slot Fansink
    alias snd-card-1 snd-hda-intel
    # GBI1.l5Y8W3MP3S8:CMI8788 [Oxygen HD Audio]
    alias snd-card-0 snd-virtuoso

    If this does not provide the required info, then another approach to obtain more
    information on your hardware and your sound configuration, is to run the ALSA script.

    I decided to provide some output from my computer this morning. Here is option 1, showing the alsa Packages installed:

    Code:
    1 . Verify your Alsa Packages are installed for Operational Testing ...

    You should expect to have at least four Alsa Packages Installed.

    You have different sound devices, but should expect to have both alsa and pulse installed.

    The xonar appears to be a real pain to get working in Linux. Can you provide the output URL/website address one gets from running (with PC connected to the internet):
    Code:
    /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh
    Also, how many sound devices do you have ?

    Can you also install the application 'pavucontrol' and then run 'pavucontrol' and see if you can use it to tune your audio ? Run pavucontrol while you are playing an application with sound.

    Also, be certain to run 'mmcheck' packaged by jdmcdaniel3 in case this is just a simple case of your multimedia being misconfigured.

    Thank you both for the help.

    I have one true sound card which is the Xonar DS but my video card, an ATI Radeon 4890 chipset, handles audio for the HDMI out port on it.

    Here is the URL i recieved from running alsa-info.sh:
    http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=cf...147ac6e4d88fb7

    Running pavucontrol shows me that I have no output devices and the default is set as "Dummy Output."

    Where is this mmcheck script that you mentioned?

    jcmcdaniel:
    I have very similar outputs showing that both alsa and pulseaudio are installed for options 1 and 9. 5 is the only one where I noticed anything out of the ordinary which is posted above.

    OK, thanks. I note this from the script which is not good:
    Code:
    !!ALSA Version
    !!------------
    
    Driver version:     
    Library version:    1.0.24.1
    Utilities version:  1.0.24.2
    Your alsa sound driver is not identified. That explains the pavucontrol output.

    jcmcdaniel's mmcheck is decribed here in our FAQ/HOW-TO area: MultiMedia Checker or mmcheck - Check Your openSUSE MultiMedia Setup in Just 16 Steps ... but thats a mute point as your alsa sound driver is not recognized.

    How did the /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound file get there? Did you make that up yourself? Or was it put there by openSUSE?

    What happens if you remove that file /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound and reboot? Also, do NOT keep any backup files in /etc/modprobe.d/ directory, as they could be loaded by mistake .... put your backups elsewhere.

    I tried to fiddle with the audio settings using the GUI control panel. Perhaps it created the config file to save the changes that I had made. I deleted the configuration file and restarted to no effect.


    I think my Alsa driver may have not compiled correctly when I first installed it. The output of the installation created some errors. Here is the output when I try to 'make' and 'make install' the package.

    Sorry if I'm wasting your time with something that may not affect the outcome at all but I thought I might as well make it known in case it could be the problem.

    I used the instructions found here:

    I think my Alsa driver may have not compiled correctly when I first installed it. The output of the installation created some errors. Here is the output when I try to 'make' and 'make install' the package.
    Well, there should be no need to compile this your self.

    If you want the latest cutting edge version, install from rpms as per this guide here: SDB:Alsa-update - openSUSE

    Default Re: ASUS Xonar DS Issues

    Just reinstalled all the RPMs as per the guide. The last part was inaccessible because none of the repositories for 11.4 are online yet.

    Good news: The card is now letting me start to configure it if I go to Yast2 Control Center>Hardware>Sound
    I press edit and try to do the automatic configuration and recieve this error:
    The kernel module snd-virtuoso for sound support
    could not be loaded. This can be caused by incorrect
    module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
