alsa problem
« on: April 21, 2012, 04:51:57 am »
Hi, I can't get alsa working in vector linux light 7.0
My card is realtek ALC889A (snd_hda_intel) . Alsa detected it but the "headphone" option is 00 and I can't change it  ( in alsamixer )
Seems the same problem as here : http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/linux-newbie-8/no-headphone-control-in-alsamixer-797063/
A solution ?
Or maybe I can try this ?



"You are right, it's not seeing your Headphone.
"See:

Some users with specific hda-intel cards have
reported problems with sound card detection in the 2.6.25 series of linux kernels.
See:
http://linux.derkeiler.com/Mailing-L.../msg00001.html

So maybe you need to pass some options to the snd_hda_intel module
Eg
Add the line

options snd_hda_intel model=asus

to your /etc/modprobe.conf

and then rmmod and modprobe to reinstall the module, or just reboot.

Alternatively, maybe try a different (older, or newer) kernel from your distro's package manager.""

But I don't know how do it with this distribution because I'm newbie

Thank you

Only a Newb myself but did you check alsamixer out in a terminal session?

In terminal keep arrowing right for further options off screen.  Also make sure you choose the right settings "F6" before you start altering.

Using this method I got my card using all 6 channels - my card is Card: HDA Intel PCH    Chip: Realtek ALC662 rev1

Hope this helps

What seemed to work for me with the onboard intel sound in my computer (alsa was not seeing it)  was putting
Quote
modprobe snd-hda-intel
in /etc/rc.d/rc.local and
Quote
options snd-hda-intel model=auto
in /etc/modprobe.d/sound.conf
VL 7.0 on a Dell Optiplex 745


Which, just to give credit where its due, i think i got from the ubuntu forums.
