Hi, l’ve installed Opensuse 11.4 onto the Fujitsu Amilo L7320GW laptop, and all works well except for the headphone jack. Sound works from the laptop speakers and when the headphones are plugged in the sound is muted from the main speakers, but no sound via the headphones.
I’ve looked at other threads within the forum, and it appears that editing the 50-sound.conf file has helped other people, however the soundcard is a Realtek ALC655 (chipset VIA VT82xx), and l cannot see a listing for the ALC655 within the alsa/HD-Audio-Models.txt
I had the same problem with my Toshiba Satellite. It was simply fixed by adding the line
options snd-hda-intel model=thinkpad
to the file /etc/modprobe.d/50-sound.conf and restarting.
snd-hda-intel is the alias of the sound card. model=thinkpad although a Toshiba Satellite!
Hope this helps as it helped me
Hi tosh755, many thanks for your help, and l tried adding the line:- options snd-via82xx model=fujitsu, however when l restart the sound driver the following error occurs:-
Shutting down sound driver done
Starting sound driver: via82xxFATAL: Error inserting snd_via82xx (/lib/modules/184.108.40.206-0.5-default/kernel/sound/pci/snd-via82xx.ko): Unknown symbol in module, or unknown parameter (see dmesg)
Hi Oldcpu, many thanks for your help and my apologies for the delay in replying, but l made the mistake of installing the linux drivers from the Realtek website (Realtek), which l hoped would resolve the problem. Unfortunately it caused loads of extra problems, so l have installed a fresh copy of Opensuse 11.4 and the sound works again, albeit without sound from the headphone socket. Alsa info as below:-
Thanks for trying to solve this without the realtek drivers. While some users swear by those drivers, my experience is they tend to cause more problems than they are worth, mainly because realtek issue the drivers and then provide limited to no interactive support.
Reference the diagnostic script files, there are a LOT of mixer settings you should look at tuning. For example:
Simple mixer control 'Phone',0
Capabilities: pvolume pvolume-joined pswitch pswitch-joined cswitch cswitch-exclusive penum
Capture exclusive group: 0
Playback channels: Mono
Capture channels: Front Left - Front Right
Limits: Playback 0 - 31
Mono: Playback 0 [0%] -34.50dB] [off]
Front Left: Capture [off]
Front Right: Capture [off]
Hi oldcpu, thanks for your message and using alsamixer within a terminal window, l have turned up all of the audio settings to max, but still no joy l’m afraid, although l’ll continue to experiment with additional lines with the 50-sound.conf to see if this helps, and will update the thread if l strike lucky
Hmmm … This REALLY should JUST work. and it clearly does not.
IMHO this is worth a bug report. I recommend you write a bug report on openSUSE-11.4 component sound. There is guidance here: openSUSE:Submitting bug reports - openSUSE Use your openSUSE forum username and password when logging on to bugzilla. Note the SuSE-GmbH sound packager is also a developer of the alsa sound driver, so if anyone can fix this, they can.
They will not read a forum thread, so you need to have all the needed technical information in the bug report. Attach to your bug report the file /tmp/alsa-info.txt that you get from running:
The attachment details are at the bottom area of the bug report page.
