hi to all
i've been working on this problem for a week now, and still nothing.
i've got an audio problem with my notebook acer aspire 1640 wlmi
i have configured my card (an HDA Intel card with Realtek ALC260 chip) with alsaconf (recognized as hda-intel card), after that i've setting up volumes with alsamixer command (and saved by alsactl store) but when i try to launch any audio player (mpg321, xmms, vlc) i see the song's playing, but hear no sounds.
i try to apply some solutions appears on this (but not also) forum (per example adding parameter model=xxx to modprobe command), but with no success.
some info and outputs:

after loading of snd-hda-intel module:
[root@crackdown ~]# dmesg
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:1b.0[A] -> Link [LNKA] -> GSI 10 (level,low) -> IRQ 10
i've tried to compile alsa drivers in the kernel (as built-in or modules) and also tried to compiling alsa-driver source separately, but things remains the same.
ah, and also added my user to the audio group
i really appreciate anyone who will give me any suggestions about this.
thanks to all
Hi there, well I had a similar problem, so maybe I can help. I just bought a new motherboard with a Realtek ALC880 that also has HD audio. With alsa 1.0.10 I couldn't get any sound, even though I could load all the sound modules as you have. What I did was go to the alsa website and download the sourcecode for alsa-lib and alsa-drivers for release 1.0.11rc1 (release candidate 1). You have to compile and install them - really easy read the INSTALL files in each one.
Now the HD audio works really well. I did remove the Arch package alsa 1.0.10 first, but I'm not sure if I had to or not. If you read the changelog for the alsa 1.0.11 files, you will see that they added autoprobe support for your card so this might do it.
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts...
Try to see this link, I'm strugling with the same problem on a TravelMate 4064WLMi, and nirvanixs solution didn't work for me.
Know your rights - http://rwxr-xr-x.dk
I use this driver: http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dla … tware=Truehttp://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/dlac97-2.aspx?lineid=5&famid=12&series=8&Software=True[/url]
on my asus laptop.
thanks to nirvanix, timmy and pierluigi for reply
i'll try to install alsa-driver and alsa-lib development's version, like proposed by nirvanix
to pierluigi: realtek drivers don't works for me, and that release is only for ICH southbridge AC97 audio, not useful for me
The source code copy from www.alsa-project.org. ver:3.3-4 Linux Source Code for ALC audio codec Support Codec list: ====AC97 Codec===== ALC100,100P ALC200,200P ALC650D ALC650E ALC650F ALC650 ALC655 ALC653 ALC658 ALC658D ALC850 ALC101 ALC202 ALC250 ALC203 ====HD Audio codec ==== ALC260 ALC262 ALC880 ALC882 ALC883
the realtek driver supports also HD Audio devices.
that realtek driver you suggest simply contains alsa-driver, alsa-lib ad alsa-utils (version is 1.0.9b, so not so up to date), plus an install script that automatically decompress and installs all.
i've already tried these drivers (and also latest development version, 1.0.11rc1, like suggested by nirvanix) but with no results, things remain exactly the same
now i can hear sound from jack line only (with headphones), after editing file patch_realtek.c in alsa-driver 1.0.11rc2 sources
i follow this report on alsa-bug:

i hope this can help somebody
now in CVS this problem was fixed:
