No Sound / Laptops
June 27, 2011 11:54AM
I am not able to get sound on my laptop.

I ran 'lsmod' and got this: [pastebin.com]

If I go to 'Volume Control' and choose 'Change Device' option 0 is: 'HDA Intel (Alsa Mixer)' or option 1 is: 'VIA VT1708S (OSS Mixer)'

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi XgaryG , open terminal and type "alsamixer"
and check that all channels are well.

Hi!
w00t

The Version you are using is pretty outdated. How about simply getting latest dev-version (1.9.50) and giving that a try?
It's got a newer kernel so chances are good your Soundsystem will work out-of-the-box!

Have Fun!

I have the same problem here with a laptop from a friend, a Asus N90S brandnew, windows 7 works fine on it but all other Linux distro's lock up the laptop at some time, except ...Elive this works just as it should but no sound with the 2.6.30 kernel it needs the 2.6.31 kernel i believe,
On all the other distro's tested this was the same incident, older kernel = no sound or wireless, kernel 2.6.31 was sound and wireless ok ,but sometimes locked up the whole laptop , only thing working was the power button.

If anyone has an solution...i would be very greatfull !!!

keep on goin like this !!

Yes did that also, no go
After the "fine tuning " i saw 2 sound devices ;

HDA SIS966 Alsa mixer
Realtek ACC 663 oss mixer
Tried both, no go
got this message from a website i tested the sound with ;

" method mount with signature ssas on inteface org.freedesktop.hal device volume doesn't exist"

Does anybody have an idea ?

thanks

Hi sprint955,

is it possible that you have an integrated soundchip and a soundcard? If yes deactivate the integrated soundchip in your bios. Than try alsaconf again.

Hello
@ Squirrel, thanks i think i found out why the other distro's did freeze and Elive did not.
On the system log from Pardus 2009.1 i got this just before it froze : it started not with "kernel" but "Pulse audio (1042) reserve wrap.c;failed to acquire reservation lock on device"audio 0"/ input/output error".

is this why maybe ?
I will check in the bios ( if i can find it omfg ) but won't Win 7 be out of sound than ?

I will post back
Thanks for the reply

Hello Sprint,

I have no knowledge with Pardus but Debian / elive will start even if you have two sound sound chips active. But sound is not working than. I hope you will find a solution and will wait for the result.

Good luck

Hello,

Well , on this moment Pardus is still on the laptop, and i changed the audio device from "Pulse Audio" to "Pulse Audio server".
For the moment it looks pretty stable, only 1 "frozen " time and this on an error from Bluetooth , the only thing about bluetooth i could not remove was Bluez , the pakket manager crashed trying to remove this everytime.
I will try Elive tomorrow or so, but i did not find any sound device in the (pretty slim ) bios at all.
