No Sound After Installation [solved]

Problem: No Sound

My sound module is the snd-hda-intel and has been loaded properly as seen from the output below.

All sound levels are at maximum and the chip is not muted.

My user is part of the audio group.

I'm not sure how to proceed. I have already tried loading the module manually.

[root@BrenTop etc]# lsmod|grep '^snd'
snd_seq_oss            29440  0
snd_seq_midi_event      6528  1 snd_seq_oss
snd_seq                47056  4 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi_event
snd_seq_device          6796  2 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq
snd_pcm_oss            38944  0
snd_mixer_oss          14464  1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_hda_intel          15768  1
snd_hda_codec         156800  1 snd_hda_intel
snd_pcm                68612  3 snd_pcm_oss,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec
snd_timer              18948  2 snd_seq,snd_pcm
snd                    44004  11 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq,snd_seq_device,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_hda_intel,snd_hda_codec,snd_pcm,snd_timer
snd_page_alloc          7816  2 snd_hda_intel,snd_pcm

[root@BrenTop etc]# ls -l /dev/snd
total 0
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 116,  0 Dec 25 18:50 controlC0
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 116, 24 Dec 25 18:50 pcmC0D0c

crw-rw---- 1 root audio 116,  1 Dec 25 18:50 seq
crw-rw---- 1 root audio 116, 33 Dec 25 18:50 timer

Any help would be awesome. Thanks!

Re: No Sound After Installation [solved]

Take a look at http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Alsa smile And make sure your user is added to the group sound . Also make sure that nothing is muted in alsamixer. (Run alsamixer in a console)

Re: No Sound After Installation [solved]

All the channels are unmuted also. I have been working at this problem nonstop without results. Has anyone else been unable to get sound with alsa or oss?

Re: No Sound After Installation [solved]

I have tried using alsaconf and also right now have removed the code from modprode.conf, which is now empty. Rc.conf is also empty, but I have tried loading the modules there as well.

Re: No Sound After Installation [solved]

Hm OK

On my Thinkpad I must activate the Modem in the BIOS, to get Sound Working.

You can try it.

Re: No Sound After Installation [solved]

I got it working (the quality is pretty bad) by adding this line to modprobe.conf:

options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 model=3stack
