Thread: sound from STAC9205 only via headphones

  1. sound from STAC9205 only via headphones

    I installed Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring x86_64 on my new notebook
    Dell Inspiron 1720. It all went fine. I installed the NVidia 8600M GT
    myself, 100.14.11 downloaded from NVidia's website, as the driver
    included in Spring doesn't support this card. The Wireless 3945 was
    working immediately out of the box.

    But sound was not working. Until I tried the headphones output.
    That way sound works fine. How can I enable sound from the speakers?
    It should be something easy ;-)

    First thing I would try is find kmix, and play with the slider
    controls.

    I played with all possible settings in kmix. Nothing turned on the
    speakers. Also tried alsomixer without success.

    Yup. And the next thing to try is start up alsactl in a terminal
    window. Path is /usr/sbin/alsactl if that is not in your $PATH
    setting. Get to where it asks you if you want it to change the
    settings and answer yes. When it has done so, exit and log out.
    Restart.

    I did a bunch of updating to my system this morning, and my
    sound went away. I tried amarok and then rhythmbox, tried
    kmix and alsmixergui, then went to mcc services to see if
    sound and alsa were running (both were), fired up KDE control
    center and went to sound, and nothing I changed there could get
    a peep out of the speakers. I finally remembered that the first
    time I tried to set up sound I had to run alsactl and let it set
    up the settings.

    That done, everything reverted to normsl.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for the info.
    But if I launch alsactl, I get
    [root@localhost bert]# alsactl
    alsactl: Specify command...
    So what command should I launch?
    alsactl -h
    doesn't give me the right hint to find out what you did...

    I think I ran alsactl restore. If that does not work, try
    /usr/sbin/alsaconf.

    I tried:
    alsactl restore 0
    But after reboot, there was no improvement.
    /usr/sbin/alsaconf does not exist on my system.
    I do have alsa.agent but don't know it.
    Is your system also a Dell Inspiron 1720 with Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring?

    lspci lists the audio device as:
    00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio
    Controller (rev 02)
    According to alsa website, ICH8 is not yet supported...

    No, mine is a desktop, a Microtel with nVidia motherboard carrying
    two AMD dual-core 64-bit cpus.

    I did. I ran alsaconf and could choose my sound card. It was configured by
    this tool. But after reboot there was no improvement. The tool did make a
    configuration file /etc/modprobe.d/sound which I changed by adding
    options snd-hda-intel model=dell-laptop
    I found it on the web:
    http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...da_intel%20#14
    But this change was meant for the 82801G (ICH7 Family), while I have 82801H
    (ICH8 Family). The dell and dell-laptop addition didn't get the speakers to
    work.

    I have more or less the same but:
    snd_hda_intel 20764 8
    snd_hda_codec 204544 1 snd_hda_intel
    So no snd_intel8x0.

    Definitely different audio devices.

    As we both use the same Mandriva Linux 2007 Spring x86_64, these are the
    same versions. I don't have player and mixer gui's.

    Thank you very much for providing hints and details about your system.

    According to the release notes of 2008:
    http://wiki.mandriva.com/en/Releases...orted_hardware
    There will be support for:
    Many newer onboard sound devices using the High Definition Audio codec,
    particularly on motherboards using Intel chipsets.
    So with 2008 the speakers will hopefully work ;-)

    Try editing /etc/asound.state manually, and changing the 'Channel Mode'
    to 4ch, or 6ch.

    Then run alsactl restore.

    Thanks for the hint. But it is not that easy...

    /etc/asound.state looks like:
    state.Intel {
    control.1 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type ENUMERATED
    comment.count 1
    comment.item.0 Mic
    comment.item.1 Line
    iface MIXER
    name 'Input Source'
    value Mic
    }
    control.2 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type INTEGER
    comment.count 2
    comment.range '0 - 4'
    iface MIXER
    name 'InMux Capture Volume'
    value.0 3
    value.1 3
    }
    control.3 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type INTEGER
    comment.count 2
    comment.range '0 - 15'
    iface MIXER
    name 'InVol Capture Volume'
    value.0 12
    value.1 12
    }
    control.4 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type BOOLEAN
    comment.count 2
    iface MIXER
    name 'ADCMux Capture Switch'
    value.0 true
    value.1 true
    }
    control.5 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type INTEGER
    comment.count 2
    comment.range '0 - 127'
    iface MIXER
    name 'Front Playback Volume'
    value.0 101
    value.1 101
    }
    control.6 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type BOOLEAN
    comment.count 2
    iface MIXER
    name 'Front Playback Switch'
    value.0 true
    value.1 true
    }
    control.7 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type INTEGER
    comment.count 2
    comment.range '0 - 127'
    iface MIXER
    name 'Surround Playback Volume'
    value.0 101
    value.1 101
    }
    control.8 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type BOOLEAN
    comment.count 2
    iface MIXER

    value.0 true
    value.1 true
    }
    control.9 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type BOOLEAN
    comment.count 1
    iface MIXER
    name 'Line In as Output Switch'
    value true
    }
    control.10 {
    comment.access 'read write'
    comment.type BOOLEAN
    comment.count 1
    iface MIXER
    name 'Mic as Output Switch'
    value true
    }
    control.11 {
    comment.access 'read write user'
    comment.type INTEGER
    comment.count 2
    comment.range '0 - 255'
    comment.tlv '0000000100000008ffffec1400000014'
    iface MIXER
    name 'PCM Playback Volume'
    value.0 135
    value.1 135
    }
    }
    I don't know what to change...

    There is also /etc/asound.names which looks like:
    ctl {
    alsactl1 {
    name hw:0
    comment 'Physical Device - HDA Intel at 0xfebfc000 irq 58'
    }
    }
    pcm {
    alsactl1 {
    name default:0
    comment 'Abstract Device - Default Device (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl2 {
    name plug:default:0
    comment 'Abstract Device With Conversions - Default Device (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl3 {
    name front:0
    comment 'Abstract Device - Front Speakers (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl4 {
    name plug:front:0
    comment 'Abstract Device With Conversions - Front Speakers (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl5 {
    name 'hw:0,0'
    comment 'Physical Device - STAC92xx Analog (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl6 {
    name 'plughw:0,0'
    comment 'Physical Device With Conversions - STAC92xx Analog (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl7 {
    name surround40:0
    comment 'Abstract Device - Front and Rear Speakers (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl8 {
    name plug:surround40:0
    comment 'Abstract Device With Conversions - Front and Rear Speakers
    (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl9 {
    name surround51:0
    comment 'Abstract Device - Front, Rear, Center and Woofer (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl10 {
    name plug:surround51:0
    comment 'Abstract Device With Conversions - Front, Rear, Center and Woofer
    (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl11 {
    name surround71:0
    comment 'Abstract Device - Front, Rear, Side, Center and Woofer (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl12 {
    name plug:surround71:0
    comment 'Abstract Device With Conversions - Front, Rear, Side, Center and
    Woofer (Duplex)'
    }
    }
    rawmidi {
    }
    timer {
    alsactl1 {
    name 'hw:CLASS=1,SCLASS=0,CARD=-1,DEV=0,SUBDEV=0'
    comment 'Physical Device - system timer'
    }
    }
    seq {
    alsactl1 {
    name default
    comment 'Default Device - Sequencer (Duplex)'
    }
    alsactl2 {
    name hw
    comment 'Physical Device - Sequencer (Duplex)'
    }
    }
    Again I don't know what to change...

    Kind regards,

    Googling for 'Dell Inspiron 1720 alsa' brought the answer...
    http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/dell_inspiron_1720

    Under Mandriva it is not /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base as in ubuntu,
    but it is /etc/modprobe.d/sound
    This file now looks like:
    alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-hda-intel
    options snd-hda-intel model=ref
    options snd-hda-intel model=6stack-digout
    options snd-hda-intel probe_mask=1

    This way, sound from the speakers works fine.
    But now it is reversed: the headphones output doesn't work...
