Please remove “options snd-hda-intel model=test” from your /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf file, restart your PC, and then try again.
And please run that diagnostic script again:
and give the script output URL again after running that.
Note, you can not just throw anything you want in the /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf file and expect things to function. I always try to be very careful in my recommendations, following documentation as much as practical.
I am sincerely sorry, i did not think that the changed made would be resilient in the pci card, please have patience with me I am still intoxicated with windows fumes where changes were only at a software level …
as you asked i have made the changed and posted them:
Your master volume control is rather low at 53%
Simple mixer control ‘Master’,0
Capabilities: pvolume pvolume-joined pswitch pswitch-joined
Playback channels: Mono
Limits: Playback 0 - 30
Mono: Playback 16 [53%] -21.00dB] [on]Can you move that up to 95% and test?
That dmesg you gave me … was that with the model=test in place? If so, you can do that again ( dmesg > dmesg.txt and upload ) without that incorrect model option in place ?
Or , … you can simply report this as a bug on openSUSE component “sound” (be sure to specify that) where there is guidance for writing bug reports here: Submitting Bug Reports - openSUSE
To support your bug report, please run alsa-info.sh with the no-upload option: /usr/sbin/alsa-info.sh --no-upload
which will create the file /tmp/alsa-info.txt. Please attach alsa-info.txt to your bug report.
By writing a bug report, you bring your sound problem to the immediate attention of an openSUSE packager for sound, who is also an alsa sound driver developer. If anyone can sort the problem you have, he can.
the other one was actually with the options…test still in the 50-sound.conf file, sorry again for my ignorance …
the hardware actually was working great with either ubuntu 7 and opensuse 10.1 … but then i couldnt find a suitable cad software that soddisfied my requirements and gone back to windows, tonight i just installed a few new versions of cad software i want to test and since the old versions linux has improved drastically … and with windows also it works
You could post the URL of the bug report here, and from time to time I’ll drop in and look at the exchange between you and the alsa developer. Note you need to be careful to clear the “Need Info” flag in the bug report when ever you answer one of the support staff’s questions (else they will miss your response).
Thank you for the suggestion, i did upload the file as you asked, Im starting to get the hang of this command line, much more powerful then windows were you had to search and hoped to find a free application patch or some sort of how to do to sort out a single little problem without choice between different solutions …
how long you think it will take them to reply? days right?
Typically Takashi responds to a thread in 2 working days. BUT if he is on vacation, or on a business trip, it could be a week or two.
… ah … I see he has responded already. He wants more info !!
His two posts:
Through a quick glance, I don’t find anything wrong.
It’d be helpful if you can get alsa-info.sh output for the working (old) kernel
so that we can compare the HD-audio codec registers.
For example, you can install the old kernel via rpm -i additionally without
replacing the running one.
… You are running 11.2 ?? Hence I am a bit confused as to what old kernel he has in mind. You could ask him to point to a repos with the kernel he is thinking of. I can walk you thru installing this 2nd kernel (while keeping your old) if necessary.
Also, it’s not clear which output doesn’t work. Doesn’t the headphone work?
Or only the speaker output, or both?
Another check is to avoid the PulseAudio (if it’s used).
For example, login as root on linux console (runlevel 3). Adjust the mixer via
“alsamixer -c0”. Then run like
aplay -Dplughw -vv /usr/share/sound/alsa/test.wav
He is reviewing a lot of data (plus a lot of other bug reports). He may have missed that. Just let him know you tried both speakers ad headphones as a regular user (and also with root permissions, assuming you tried that).
Don’t forget to remove the “need info” flag after replying.
