I dont have the problem. Same audio card:

00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)


Dell XPS M1530
Kernel:2.6.24-ARCH #1 SMP x86_64 Intel(R)

But i have a x86_64 Arch.
Comment by Jacob Svensson (jaqob) - Tuesday, 01 April 2008, 09:09 GMT
Leonardo Andrés Gallego, do you have an "options snd-hda-intel" line in /etc/modprobe.conf?
Comment by Damien Herraud (bapman) - Tuesday, 01 April 2008, 12:50 GMT
Leonardo, is it the same sound ship (STAC9228) ?
Comment by Jun Wu (quark) - Thursday, 03 April 2008, 02:45 GMT
Realtek ALC 883, same problem.
Seems not related to ALSA, but the kernel.
Comment by Jun Wu (quark) - Friday, 04 April 2008, 00:38 GMT
Solved by compiling Realtek's alsa again and reboot.
Comment by Damien Herraud (bapman) - Friday, 04 April 2008, 22:54 GMT
Yes I compiled Sigmatel's alsa and it does the trick ! Thanks Jun !
Comment by m.f. (iggy) - Monday, 07 April 2008, 14:56 GMT
hey hello!

how did you recompile "sigmatel's alsa" ???

same issue, dell m1330 and no sound with sigmatel chip...

do i have to change all "y" to "m" for all devices?

after that i build a alsa-driver pkg and installed it - no success, still no sound available.

Jacob, sorry for the delay.
Dont have the "options snd-hda-intel" line in modprobe.conf.
Also, I didnt recompile nor edited kernels .config file.

ps. Remember mine is a x86_64 install, maybe there is a difference

hello!

i have tested the new 2.6.25 today, but no luck. with kernel 2.6.24 sound works out of the box.
alsamixer shows me a pcm and a front device.
with kernel 2.6.25 sound does not work! :(
the strange thing is, that alsamixer shows me the pcm, front and a master device. the master device has no switch.

this is my card:
- 00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller (rev 02)
- Chip: SigmaTel STAC9228

any ideas?
Comment by m.f. (iggy) - Tuesday, 29 April 2008, 08:59 GMT
i solved the issue by applying this patch to the 2.6.25 kernel:

http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10302

to have sound i have to enable the surround channel, strange, but not so important.
the master channel works and i can toggle it.
Comment by Alessio Bianchi (Venator85) - Wednesday, 21 May 2008, 13:16 GMT
I also experienced this problem, and I solved it simply by un-muting the surround channel with alsamixer. I'm using Arch's stock 2.6.25 kernel and alsa without any patches.
Comment by Damien Herraud (bapman) - Tuesday, 27 May 2008, 18:49 GMT
Alessio, is your laptop a Dell M1330 ?
Comment by Alessio Bianchi (Venator85) - Tuesday, 27 May 2008, 20:53 GMT
@Damien:
Of course ;)
Comment by Damien Herraud (bapman) - Tuesday, 27 May 2008, 20:54 GMT
ok so it would suggest that the new kernel solves the issue !
Comment by Glenn Matthys (RedShift) - Tuesday, 17 June 2008, 18:34 GMT
fyi, this bug (http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=10302) is still open at bugzilla.kernel.org
Comment by Greg (dolby) - Saturday, 26 July 2008, 05:56 GMT
Is it still a problem? Even with 2.6.26?
Comment by m.f. (iggy) - Saturday, 26 July 2008, 09:50 GMT
not for me anymore! works fine with the new kernel.
