Need help getting sound to work

Hello friends, I promised I've spent hours today googling the hell out of this stuff installing and uninstalling packages refollowing the wiki page on ALSA like 5 times still to no avail.

I'm still  new at this stuff so I'm sure the problem has to do with something I should have done but I need help from people who know more than me smile

and I've tried rebooting mutliple times as well which.

To be clear my issue is that I hear no sound coming out of my speakers when running the speaker-test or aplay on a noise file etc..

I don't understand half of this stuff but when I issue alsactl init I get
Found hardware: "SB-XFi" "20K1" "" "0x1102" "0x002c"

so that looks good and aplay -l yields the correct device it seems.

I keep rechecking to make sure that all sound channels are unmuted with alsamixer

keep rebooting, still no sound.

The wiki didn't make it seem like it should be so hard to get working I tried following what little instructions there were I installed alsa-utils alsa-plugins and alsa-oss packages

nothing complains really, when I run the aplay and speaker-test I get terminal output as if sound is playing and everything is working except there is no air vibration coming out of my speakers if ya get my drift.

Not sure what I'm missing To be honest I though I would have had to have manually installed a specific driver for my sound card but the wiki tutorials only mentioned a need to install the basic sound system.

I would greatly appreciate help on this and I apologize if anything is particularly clumsy on my part./
Thanks!
-cheers

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Why don't you post *exactly* what you did? And *exactly* what the output was? Not your interpretation of it or what you think it meant but the actual, raw results.

Use

code tags

(for the code).

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Did you un-mute & rase the volume of "Master" and "PCM" in alsamixer?

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Following the wiki, did you check the sound modules are loaded correctly?

That is an awful lot of devices producing no sound, by the way!

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Are you using systemd? My permissions are different - I have ACLs for some of those files where you don't. I'm not sure whether this matters or not, though.

Can root play sound?

Re: Need help getting sound to work

I thought systemd was used by default? Unfortunately I can't check until tuesday night when I go back home. And which files are you referring to with the differing ACLs?
And no, speaker-test etc on root for me yields no sound.
Edit: Ok yeah I think I installed the os after the 10th of last month so it should already be running systemd and if I'm not mistaken
systemd is responsible for all the [ OK ] .. lines at startup then yeah I'm using systemd.

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Well, I get this:

$ ls -l /dev/snd/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root       80 Tach 17 21:45 by-path/
crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 116,  8 Tach 17 21:45 controlC0

crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 116,  3 Tach 17 21:45 pcmC0D3p
crw-rw----  1 root audio 116,  1 Tach 17 21:45 seq
crw-rw----+ 1 root audio 116, 33 Tach 17 21:45 timer

The plus signs indicate ACLs. From man acl:

    On a system that supports ACLs, the file utilities ls(1), cp(1), and mv(1) change their behavior in the following way:

     ·   For files that have a default ACL or an access ACL that contains more than the three required ACL entries, the ls(1) utility in
         the long form produced by ls -l displays a plus sign (+) after the permission string.

But I would think it would work for root if it were a permission problem so this likely is irrelevant.

Are the [OK]s blue or green? (green -> systemd; blue -> initscripts)

Re: Need help getting sound to work

systemd it's green.
[ OK ]

But I would think it would work for root if it were a permission problem so this likely is irrelevant.

yeah I'm trying to do this as root and  no sound.

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Hello I'm still trying to figure out how to get sound to work with no luck. I would greatly appreciate any help at all!

I tried the fixes from the wiki regarding conflicting pc speaker and changing sound card on boot to no avail.

Please let me know if there is anything I'm being unclear about, All I want is to get sound to work on this machine I'm willing to try lots of different suggestions as long as they aren't "give up" smile

I've tried really hard to think about what I could be missing, I made sure my computer is plugged in but that's not the problem.

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Are you using virtualbox? I notice the wiki mentions enabling ALSA in software as well in that case if you get alsactl init output which looks a bit like yours. (I'm not clear whether it means if you are just not getting sound in virtualbox on arch or if it means if you are running arch in virtualbox...)

It looks as if the modules are loaded OK (judging by the wiki info). Have you checked to see if you need to set anything for your sound card model? (i.e. checked the list of sound cards for suggested config info - the wiki on alsa links to the page.)

Have you tried the conflicting pc speaker fix from the wiki?

Did you check /proc/asound/modules?

Re: Need help getting sound to work

I'm not using virtualbox, I installed arch on this computer's harddrive from the installation cd.
I did try the conflicting pc speaker fix with both settings (ac97_quirk=0,=1) using snd_ctxfi and rebooting for each try.

neither worked, all they did was cause alsa to stop working.

my /proc/asound/modules only contains the line

 0 snd_ctxfi

//soundcard info (from the soundcard matrix, under Creative_Labs)
X-Fi Fatal1ty
   
chipset: emu20k1
Details: [PCI] Partially supported on 1.0.21; EAX and Advanced sound options like crystalizer not available

Re: Need help getting sound to work

Your system is up to date?

EDIT: The only post I can find which looks relevant to your hardware is https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=611981. It is obviously far from current but perhaps something there will give you a clue?

Otherwise, maybe try the IRC channel. I hesitate to suggest this as I've never done it. Make sure you check the alsa wiki page and post all the required information there.

yes? pacman -Sy is that what you're referring to?

Re: Need help getting sound to work

pacman -Syu

Otherwise your actual system won't get updated - just pacman's database of available packages in the repositories.

Re: Need help getting sound to work

I commend you for thinking outside the box, that was definitely a good guess at what the problem was but unfortunately I still have no sound sad
..I've spent some time now analyzing the thread you linked, for the most part I feel like as you implied it's irrelevant considering
that it sounds like their problems mostly stemmed from ctxfi support not being built in, but since ctxfi already shows up in my module list and that's 2009 I doubt that's likely my issue, but I'm still looking.

I mean what I'm not clear on is, idealy am I supposed to have sound by this point? I mean did I do everything right? was I supposed to create a script under ~/ or modprobe.d or something with some special line entered? I mean the wiki so far still leads me to believe that all I had to do was
add my user to audio group, install alsamixer, run it, unmute my sound channels, and then viola get to play sound.. ?
edit:
    thought I would just mention that I tried getting sound to work with oss and no luck there either, osstest gave me the message *** All tests completed OK *** but of course I heard no sound....

..I've been spending some time reading threads similar to mine, where people installed alsa and did everything right and no sound like this one http://bbs.archbang.org/viewtopic.php?id=2072
But unfortunately there is no solution on those threads that I'm finding. sad

I wish I could narrow down my issue somehow, but that's difficult when there are no error messages anywhere to go off on.

EDIT : I put the computer I had this issue with to the side I was able to find out that the issue was not that it wasn't playing sound but that a 6.5mm jack I was using as speaker output that had worked on windows wasn't working on linux and that sound only output from the jacks that were directly connected to the soundcard (not the midi interface).
