They tried the 3stack-dig and also the 6stack-dig model options. Did you try them? Don’t forget to restart alsa (with rcalsasound restart) after each attempt, and check your mixer. Also note if you run alsaconf or yast>hardware>sound after editing your /etc/modprobe.d/sound file it will wipe out your custom settings (which you don’t want) so don’t run those.
Finally, how many of the ALSA-Configuration.txt file options did you try? Here is a list of the options from that file:
3stack-dig 3-jack with SPDIF I/O
6stack-dig 6-jack digital with SPDIF I/O
3stack-6ch 3-jack 6-channel
3stack-6ch-dig 3-jack 6-channel with SPDIF I/O
6stack-dig-demo 6-jack digital for Intel demo board

I should have asked earlier, can you expand on this. When you say you have the “same problem like the other guys with the laptop”, what problem precisely is that?
I take it you HAVE SOUND, but your Acer Aspire 9802 laptop (which I believe has a little built in subwoofer (2.1) system), and your problem is that all your sound is coming out of that subwoofer, and not the 2 other laptop speakers?
Is that correct?
[If so, then I’ve been on the wrong approach … what we need is likely to implement a custom .asoundrc file tuned to 2.1 sound].
OK, so with Kubuntu you obtained only sound from the subwoofer, but not from the other two speakers.
And with openSUSE you only obtain sound from the headphones, and not from the speakers.
I am running out of ideas to test. … but in your mixer, I notice the following from the tsalsa script:
Amixer contents for card 0 [Intel] _____________________________________
amixer set 'Master',0 74% on
amixer set 'PCM',0 75% 75%
amixer set 'Front',0 74%,74% on
amixer set 'Line',0 100%,100% on
amixer set 'Mic',0 74% off 74% off
amixer set 'Mic Boost',0 67% 67%
amixer set 'IEC958',0 off
amixer set 'IEC958 Default PCM',0 on
amixer set 'Capture',0 Capture 17 55% off Capture 17 55% off
amixer set 'Capture',1 Capture 16 52% off Capture 16 52% off
amixer set 'Input Source',0 Items: 'Mic' 'Line' Item0: 'Line'
amixer set 'Input Source',1 Items: 'Mic' 'Line' Item0: 'Line'
How about setting IEC958 = ON and/or IEC958 Default PCM = ON (just in case your laptop uses digital audio). You can set them off afterward if it doesn’t work. Also try setting your Line (now at 100%) to OFF, and see if that makes a difference. The alsa implementation in some of the hardware audio codecs had controls reversed, so it does not hurt to try different combinations, … just be certain to set things back properly when you have completed testing.
Also, you should try ALL of the model options in the ALSA-Configuration.txt for the ALC883, and not just the one’s you highlighted in bold. You should also double check the one’s you highlighted in bold.**
Could you, one more time, try “6stack-dig” in place of “acer-aspire” and restart your alsa with rcalsasound restart and test again with your mixer.
Note it doesn’t appear alsa has the implementation 100% correct yet for this laptop, so it is possible your mixer settings are ‘mixed up’. … ie. maybe mastervolume is in the place of front, and surround is in the place of headphones/LFE, and center for subwoofer, or some other strange permutation.
So 1st record your current settings, then try different settings. If nothing works, go back to the “model=acer-aspire” and restore the mixer settings to what you know works.
Maybe you could do me a favour? I put an entry in the openSUSE HCL for your acer 9802. HCL/Laptops/Acer - openSUSE
To help me fill it in better, I assume you only have tried 2D (and not 3D video), … is that correct? Have you succeedd with wireless? Blue Tooth? any luck with Power Management?
i will be give you all information i can get.
But in the moment i have great problems to get the tv-card working.
attention translated by google:
the drivers was recognized but the DVB-T receivers.
even after I
modprobe saa7134 dvb-tuner card = 81 = 54 & dmesg
have entered the recipient does not. But i have to read more instructions and hope to get it work, then do i tell it to you.
Or aks you holes in the abdomen -> German speech
Wireless works. During the operation can be controlled through the wireless hardware button off, but only after a restart again. translate by google
at the moment not tested … coming soon.
It starts when opensuse starts an i can switch the CPU-Power,
what i have to test with the power managment?
After much fiddling on 10.x and 11.0, I was able to get sound working (somewhat) for my ALC 883, but never on all channels.
Now, I have a fresh install of 11.1/Gnome from the LiveCD in a new partition. I set my /etc/modprobe.d/sound settings from the 11.0 installation and have no sound on any channels:
options snd-hda-intel model=acer-aspire enable=1 index=0
Booting into OpenSuse 11.0 or Windows Vista Ultimate gives me working sound, while booting into OpenSuse 11.1 does not.
The gnome mixer shows Left and Right channels only (11.0 Kmixer shows quite a few more) and “appears” to play (it shows dynamic levels bouncing around.)
Unfortunately, I don’t have external speakers to check the SPIDF jack – it may or may not be enabled. In KMixer, there was a headphone option where muting it would toggle the jack or built-in speakers, but I can’t find where to do that in the gnome mixer and I do not have any KDE stuff in this 11.1 installation.
memswiler, can you start a new thread? I do not know if an Acer Aspire 9810 has the same hardware as a 9802. It could be different, and having different hardware in the same thread is just going to confuse me.
