Debian Hardware :: Looking For List Of Supported Sound Cards?

Jul 8, 2011

I'd like to make a complete switch to Debian. One of the things holding me back is not knowing the state of play regarding sound card support. I've been fiddling around on and off for three years trying to get my M-Audio FireWire Solo to work in Ubuntu without much joy. I think there might be greater support for USB sound cards but I'm not certain of this. Onboard cards aren't OK because in my experience these pick up too much noise. After years of using balanced audio lines it's pretty much impossible to go back. That said, a PCIe card isn't completely out of the picture if I can get balanced outs with it.

I'm planning on plugging KRK powered monitors via XLR or TRS cables into the sound card. But my preference at this point is firmly with USB sound cards. Is there an up-to-date list I can check of supported sound cards in Debian? Can anyone here provide a testimonial of their experience? It's important to note that I'm after playback only. I don't want to record ever. That should hopefully make things easier. I'd be looking at using Debian wheezy.

OpenSUSE Wireless :: Any List Of Wireless PCI Cards Supported By OSS 11.3?

Aug 21, 2010

I recently read over here: Getting Your Wireless to Work : "For example, open-source firmware for the Broadcom BCM4306/3 BCM4318, and BCM4311/1 was just released. Future openSUSE versions will be able to include this firmware and those devices will work immediately..." I am looking for PCI cards for desktops. Besides the list of supported chipsets at [URL], is there a brand name list with firmware support by OSS 11.3? At the moment, I have a Netgear WG311v3 which believe has been causing system instabilities in both linux and windoze:
01:06.0 Ethernet Controller [0200]: Marvell Technology Group Ltd. 88w8335 [Libertas] 802.11 b/g Wireless [11ab:1faa] (rev 03)

Debian Hardware :: No Sound Cards Or Gstreamer Plugins?

Sep 24, 2010

I just two days ago updated lenny, then unplugged my monitor which raised my video card out of my open system board. This made my debian com freeze and i had to restart. The sound icon looks like its muted or has an X next to it. It says 'No volume control GStreamer plugins and/or devices found.' I tried looking through forums but havent found any solutions yet. I think alsa is installed. I ran alsaconf. It said no sound cards were loaded when unloading them. Then the following cards are found on your system:

hda-intel ATI Technologies Inc SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA)
hda-intel ATI Technologies Inc Radeon HD 3870 Audio device
legacy Probe legacy ISA (non-PnP) chips

I tried the first two, it says OK, sound driver is configured ALSA CONFIGURATOR will prepare the card for playing now. I'll run alsasound init script, then use amixer.

I then installed libesd-alsa0, replacing libesd0 or something. If I do # alsamixer, then it says alsamixer: function snd_ctl_open failed for default: No such file or directory

Then i tried this

# cat /proc/asound/cards
cat: /proc/asound/cards: No such file or directory
then # cat /proc/asound/modules
cat: /proc/asound/modules: No such file or directory


Did I break the onboard sound card when pulling out the video cord? I was pretty gentle, I just made it slide out i think. I've also restarted a bunch of times. It seems like alsaconf showed some sound cards. Maybe some driver is not installed, but I think I did install a newer gstreamer or part of it.

Debian Multimedia :: Two Sound Cards Sharing Kernel Module

Dec 5, 2014

I have an nvidia card and a motherboard with an internal sound card.

The nvidia card hogs alsa, and it's really obnoxious because I don't use hdmi for audio (or video, for that matter, crt all day)

I would normally just blacklist the module that the card is using, but I hit a hiccup...

This is the readout for the gfx card from lspci -v

Code: Select all01:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0fbc (rev a1)
   Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 84bb
   Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 25
   Memory at fe080000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
   Capabilities: [60] Power Management version 3
   Capabilities: [68] MSI: Enable- Count=1/1 Maskable- 64bit+
   Capabilities: [78] Express Endpoint, MSI 00
   Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel

And this is the readout from the motherboards internal audio card

Code: Select all00:14.2 Audio device: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] SBx00 Azalia (Intel HDA) (rev 40)
   Subsystem: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd Device a132
   Flags: bus master, slow devsel, latency 32, IRQ 16
   Memory at fe500000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16K]
   Capabilities: [50] Power Management version 2
   Kernel driver in use: snd_hda_intel

Since they have the same kernel module, all the internet advice is pretty much moot, because I can't figure out how to effectively shut off one without killing the other as well. Huge PITA.

Hardware :: Wondering Why More Wireless Cards Not Supported

Jul 29, 2010

It seems like the wireless card is just about the only piece of hardware without much support in Linux. Is there any particular reason that they've been so overlooked? Like is it harder to write a driver for them or something?

which chipsets are on the PCi and PCie cards, EW7722in and EW-7612PIn, and whether they can be made to run on a linux system. My system is recent (Linux home kernel) Do they have the same chipset as EW-7711In, which I notice has explicit linux support? Now this was on the 3/03/2011, and I had given up getting any kind of useful support, but I got a reply today. I hope they wont mind if I quote them:

Ubuntu Networking :: Any Newer Supported USB Wireless Cards?

May 2, 2010

Had a hard drive fail this week, and I am going to order a new one. I am using $150 dollars in Best Buy gift certificates. Well seeing as how I have some left over I would like to get a usb wireless adapter that would work out of the box (preferably usb although I could always get an internal). All Best Buy has are wireless N cards and I was wondering if anyone knows if any Wireless N USB cards work out of the box without downloading firmware or NDISwrapper.

Ubuntu Networking :: 9.0.4 - Supported Ethernet Cards That Work Flawlessly?

Apr 29, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.0.4 with an Intel PRO/100 VE Network Connection. I have been trying for a couple weeks now different techniques to get my wired ethernet connection working properly. I have a seeming common issue with my e100 driver dropping connection and having hard time picking it back up sometimes. I want to purchase a relatively inexpensive Ethernet card whose generic Linux driver actually operates it CORRECTLY, open up comp and put it in, and update to 9.10. Any list of Ethernet cards that are know to work flawlessly on Ubuntu, or at least tell me which card YOU are using that works perfect without having to write code, install wrapper programs, etc...?

CentOS 5 Hardware :: Figure Out Wireless Cards Will Be Supported By The Kernel?

Jul 29, 2011

Looking at getting a new laptop for some of the guys in my office, but trying to figure out if any of these wireless cards will be supported by the kernel, hoping not to do any serious kernel hacking to get them working. The cards are

- Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6205 802.11a/b/g/n
- Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 802.11a/b/g/n
- Dell Wireless 1501 802.11b/g/n
- Dell Wireless 1530 802.11a/g/n

If any one has experience with those cards being supported let me know, or if you know where i can find the drivers for them that'd rock too.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Alsa And Two Sound Cards In 11.2?

Dec 2, 2009

1. I run Suse 11.2 with two sound cards , one HDA comes with motherboard and second is USB, which I use for skype and talking. In YAST everything is fine the motherboard card is marked as prime card and the usb card is marked as second. But often when I log in alsa decides that second card is main and I have to pull out the USB card, run command "rcalsasound restart" and put the USB back afterward. It is a way that to be fixed in the way that alsa remember my choices forever. 2. The other problem is that from time to time the sound suddenly dies and I have to bring it up with rcalsasound restart again.

But I have to admit that their significant improvement with managing sound with PulseAudio.

Programming :: Synchronize Sound Cards On Different Computers?

Dec 27, 2010

I've written a "C" program which transmits audio to a number of computers over a TCP LAN connection. I'm using ALSA, the preemptive kernel, and pthread. After running for 30 minutes or so the slight variation in sampling rates (~+-.01%) among the computers accumulates and manifests as a noticeable differential delay in the sound from the speakers. I know how to detect the variation and would like to dynamically compensate for it by individually varying the sampling rate (ever so slightly) of each playback device to oppose the variation.

Does anybody out there in Linux Land know how to dynamically vary the playback sample rate? I've tried using snd_pcm_hw_params_set_rate() and snd_pcm_hw_params_set_rate() followed by snd_pcm_hw_params() to no avail. They don't seem to work when playback is running.

Fedora :: F14 Upgrade - Lost Audio On One Of Sound Cards

Nov 17, 2010

I have just upgraded to Fedora 14, with some hope that a F13 kernel crash issue would be resolved. Alas, not, and I have lost audio in one of my sound cards. I am using 2 sound cards in my computer. The first one (VT 1708 on the M2V MX SE motherboard) is used for FLDIGI (ham radio program). The other one (Creative Labs SB Live!) is tied to a speaker/microphone. At some point in mid 2010, I started getting kernel crash reports (not sure which kernel version this started), and the VIA VT 1708 audio controller stopped working. The SB Live! card works fine.

From mesg, I get:
[9.181148] WARNING: at drivers/pci/pci.c:105 pci_ioremap_bar+0x2c/0x5b()
[9.181186] [<c05c36ad>] ? pci_ioremap_bar+0x2c/0x5b
[9.181194] [<c05c36ad>] pci_ioremap_bar+0x2c/0x5b
[9.181299] ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_intel.c:2510: ioremap error

I've just pulled out the SB LIVE! card to see if it is causing the VT 1708 controller to fail...there appears to be no interaction.

From lspci -v, I get:
20:01.0 Audio device: VIA Technologies, Inc. VT1708/A [Azalia HDAC] (VIA High Definition Audio Controller) (rev 10)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 8290
Flags: fast devsel, IRQ 17
Memory at <ignored> (64-bit, non-prefetchable)
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel modules: snd-hda-intel

So it seems to know it's there. How to get my sound back (and get rid of this kernel crash every time I start my computer)?

Hardware :: Find Sound Cards MIDI Capabilities?

It has the standard Line in, Line out, and Mic jacks, as well as what appears to be a game port. I think it has some MIDI capabilities, because "cat /dev/snd/midiC0D0" does not fail with "no such device or address," but I don't know if it has MIDI input capabilities, or if it can synthesize, or what. Is there any way to tell?
