No Sound ALSA

No sound since installation.

packages Pulse Audio, Pavacontrol deleted, intend to keep it ALSA only along with Qasmixer, alsamixergui and amixer-gtk

pulseaudio, pavacontrol and firmware-non-free at installation had no sound.

drivers not support, driver is on ALSA list of unsupported drivers.

Re: No Sound ALSA

Is Pulseaudio showing "Dummy Output"? I'm having the same issue on a Core 2 Duo machine I have set up with Devuan.

EDIT: Re-read it, forget about the above

@tux . . . Thanks for the edit. Do you have apulse installed? Needed when pulseaudio is removed. Not sure of the details.

Please provide a link to support this statement.

My research indicates both cards should have drivers:

https://linux-hardware.org/index.php?id … -1043-1d8d

https://linux-hardware.org/?id=pci:1002-aae0-1002-aae0

And you do have an analogue output device listed in the aplay output so clearly something has a driver.

Please post the full output of

speaker-test # in the alsa-utils package

Has the sound ever worked on this machine? Are you sure it's not broken?

EDIT: try the firmware-misc-nonfree, firmware-sof-signed and firmware-intel-sound packages.

EDIT2: or use the isenkram package to determine any needed firmware.

Re: No Sound ALSA

My old Intel Haswell needed an .asoundrc file to sort the 2 chips on the board.  Maybe that's an option? Or more likely this is just noise and apologies for that . . .

I didn't ask if that command produced sound.

I asked for the full output from that command. I need to see the full error message, if there is one.

Nope:

Fix /etc/apt/sources.list and update then try those packages again. If your sources are incomplete then *many* other packages might be missing.

Re: No Sound ALSA

Thank you. That output indicates that the software side of things is working. A driver is assigned and the output is correct.

So are you sure the speakers actually work? When was the last time they produced sound? Do they work with any other live ISO?

Re: No Sound ALSA

Desktop default OS sound always worked and sound for virtualbox antix and other os hopping tryouts.
After installing Devuan no sound.

Backported ALSA to get latest. Might Daedalus upgrade fix? blacklist driver?

Re: No Sound ALSA

I had a problem with sound, I switched over from a VGA monitor to a HDMI without built in speakers, but when I went back to the VGA monitor, everything was working fine - I don't think pulseaudio takes that fact into consideration, because I had it set to analogue stereo, which should have worked via the audio out socket.

Yes I do. I'll put it here but be warned there are many modules that rely/depend on hdmi.

I stopped using the blacklist when I was trying to get BT sound reliably configured.

here is a copy...

/home/glenn/My_system/backup-sys-default/etc/blacklist.conf

# blacklisted modules for PCI coldplug
# see also /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-compat
blacklist edac_mce_amd
blacklist edac
## Best not to blacklist modules that depend on eachother
blacklist snd_hda_codec_hdmi  #hdmi nvidia digital stereo
#blacklist snd_hda_codec_realtek #hda onboard 5.1 surround
#blacklist snd_hda_intel
#blacklist snd_hda_codec
#blacklist snd_usb_audio

blacklist rivatv
blacklist bluetooth
# For some bridges both intel-agp and i82875p_edac are loaded. If i82875p_edac
# is loaded first it will grab the device. Then intel-agp doesn't work.
# Therefore we disable automatic loading of 82875p_edac. (Bug 213840)
# https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=213840
blacklist i82875p_edac

# do not use "Boot Protocol" drivers, we prefer usbhid
# and they cause problems when loaded together with usbhid (#37726, #40861)
blacklist usbkbd
blacklist usbmouse

# disable PC speaker by default
# pcspkr is the standard driver, while snd-pcsp is the ALSA driver
blacklist pcspkr
blacklist snd-pcsp
blacklist nouveau
blacklist nv

# Prevent conflicts with nvidiabl
blacklist nvidia_bl
blacklist nvbacklight
blacklist mbp_nvidia_bl
# End of entries added for nvidiabl

...in it's totallity... I think that file maybe a leftover from another distro.

I did this instead so the snd-hda* dependants satisfied
/home/glenn/My_system/backup-sys-default/etc/modprobe.d/snd-options

options snd-usb-audio index=0 bdl_pos_adj=16,16
options snd-cmipci mpu_port=0x330 fm_port=0x388
options snd-hda-intel index=1
options snd_hda_codec_hdmi index=-2
options snd-pcsp index=-2

current /home/glenn/.asoundrc

#defaults.pcm.!card 0 #hdmi
#defaults.ctl.!card 0 #hdmi

# card 1 #usb-audio
#defaults.pcm.card 1 #usb-audio
#defaults.ctl.card 1 #usb-audio
# Generic_1
defaults.pcm.Generic_1 #usb-audio
defaults.ctl.Generic_1 #usb-audio

I don't have it blacklisted anymore.

current /etc/modules

# /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
#
# This file contains the names of kernel modules that should be loaded
# at boot time, one per line. Lines beginning with "#" are ignored.
snd-usb-audio
asus-wmi-sensors
#rtk_btusb
snd-pcm-oss
snd-mixer-oss
#snd-seq-oss
snd_seq

Hope this helps.
