Fedora X86/64bit :: No Sound From Pulseaudio , ALSA After 2.6.40 Kernel Upgrade / Get That?

Aug 2, 2011

I just got the upgrade for the Linux Kernel version 2.6.40-4 on my Fedora 15 x86-64 box today, and the installation completed with no problems. However when I rebooted after doing the upgrade, I noticed that I had no sound. I use an ATI Radeon HD 4350 video card, and the opensource ATI driver, and use the HDMI audio from it for sound, since my monitor has a sound output jack on it. I've booted into the previous kernel (, and sound works fine. I've tried with the new kernel in both KDE (my default desktop environment) and XFCE to get sound, and it does not work in either one. I've tried installing the VLC Phonon Backend instead of the GStreamer Backend, reinstalling Pulseaudio, reinstalling Alsa, modprobing the necessary modules needed for the card, checking all configurations with the available Pulseaudio tools (paprefs, pavumeter, pavucontrol), checked the volumes using alsamixer, and reinstalling the ALSA Pulseaudio plugin. After trying all of these, I can still get no sound out of any application, and I also noticed that Flash video plays at 2-3 times it's normal speed after the upgrade. Again, these problems do not occur on my previous kernel. Did I maybe overlook something, or can anyone else think of something I could try?

Debian Multimedia :: My Sound - ALSA Or Pulseaudio?

Jun 18, 2010

I am using a couple of Debian Distro (Sid and Lenny) add some Ubuntu into the mix. I made the switch because I was amazed and satisfied with Debian --> once installed, everything works. For me that's okay for o so many years now. I don't question a lot because it just works and I do my job on it satisfactorily. Namely programming the LAMP style programming. Lately I have been using Debian to communicate over the internet -- using Skype and Pidgin and other such things, not to mention listening to music, watching movies, just using the default applications when I originally install Debian.

Along the way, I need to configure something -- that is desktop related -- like the screen resolution of a new LCD monitor replacing the old one and such. Now about my sound -- I'm not touching it because it is working. But that is not the case always. Now I have a constant error -- it is irritating. Rhythmbox don't make a sound always when I have open a web browser (iceweasel, chrome, epiphany) and a site with multimedia object on it -- like a video or something. So how do I correct this? How do I know, too what I am using -- ALSA or Pulseaudio?

Debian Multimedia :: Alsa, Pulseaudio, ION2 & HDMI Sound Output?

Apr 29, 2011

I have recently acquired a Lenovo Q150 machine and attempting to use it as a HTPC. I've been reading that with this platform a newer kernel is required to make wireless, sound and a few other tweaks work correctly--so I bumped up to testing repositories to upgrade to the 2.6.38 kernel.[URL]...

The audio on this device has been more than a pain. I'm currently using XBMC to play media on this device and after setting the outputs to custom: plughw:1,9 sound is played correctly. I found this out by using alsamixer, selecting the sound card with the F6 key (Nvidia 1) unmutting all outputs, quiting, and running speaker-test -D plughw:1,X where X is the sub-device from the output of aplay -l until sound could be heard from the receiver.

Now my problem is that applications like mplayer, and iceweasel won't output any sound. I'd prefer not to use the optical out on the device and would like to send sound over HDMI. Has anyone had any luck getting it to work as it should?

I've also installed pulseaudio, not too sure if this is really needed. I've also used module assistant before upgrading to compile alsa from source, it worked but i just decided to upgrade the kernel instead of dealing with m-a every time an update comes through. Linux floppy 2.6.38-2-amd64 #1 SMP Thu Apr 7 04:28:07 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Fedora :: FC11 - Upgrade To FC12 And No Sound From PulseAudio

Nov 23, 2009

Pulseaudio setup. My pulseaudio was working when I was using FC11 and it stops working after I upgrade to FC12 using preupgrade. The system sees audio device and alsa is working correctly. No audio at all (system audio and mplayer) from Pulseaudio. I am using the onboard Intel audio. The verify from the alsamixer that the volume is not muted. I also tries all the combination of profiles in the pavucontrol and in some of the profiles, I can see the output volume bar is moving, but still no sound
Attached is the pulseaudio log when playing video from mplayer.

I've had nothing but trouble with Pulseaudio in Fedora 14. I had managed to get rid of it in Fedora 10 with the command: su -c "yum remove alsa-plugins-pulseaudio pulseaudio" I just don't want to have to deal with Pulseaudio anymore. It does not like my sound card and gets in the way. Is there a Linux distribution that does not use Pulseaudio ?

Fedora X86/64bit :: F12 Kernel Upgrade Failed - Eclipsed?

Dec 8, 2009

The -162 kernel upgrade just released failed to boot in my x86-64 system. Additionally, both previous kernels failed in (probably) the same way. The progress icon proceeded all the way to its 'f' image, and then hung. I touched escape key, and found several disturbing messages among a dozen or so lines --

mdadm: No arrays found in config file or automatically. A dynamic linking error occurred: /lib64/multipath/libcheckdirectio.so: no such file or directory awk: cmd. line:1: fatal: cannot open file `/etc/inittab` for reading (Invalid Argument). Init: rcS post-stop process (807) terminated with status 2s. I got into rescue mode with my install disk, then looked for libcheckdirectio.so in /mnt/sysimage/lib64 but it was not there. Also, locate -d /mnt/sysimage/mlocate/mlocate.db/libcheckdirectio.so found nothing.

Ran chroot and executed the fakd diagnostic (which I had not seen before) and rebooted. Same problem - although now the screen is telling me SELinux is requiring a targeted policy relabel. My dual-boot-to-vista system has been erratic (requiring fsck several times, and confounding the Vista partition to require file checks), primarily since a large install of Eclipse and multiple plug-ins AFAICR.

Ubuntu :: No Sound After ALSA 1.0.24 Upgrade

Mar 16, 2011

I am using linux mint 9 with kernel I upgraded from alsa 1.0.23 to 1.0.24 using the alsa upgrade script. Sound was working just fine before on my Asus Xonar DS, However, my nvidia geforce 430's hdmi audio card is not recognized in 1.0.23 but it is in 1.0.24. Though the card is detected, I have no sound on either cards now.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound In Lucid After Alsa Upgrade?

Jul 15, 2010

So i upgraded to 10.04 a few months ago, right after it was released. clean install. it worked perfectly out of the box, or so it seemed. I had had sound problems in 9.10 that i didn't experience after i upgraded... until i tried to use some headphones a few days ago. when i connected the headphones, the speakers wouldn't mute. i thought it was no big deal. i had the same issue in 9.10 and it was fixed after i upgraded alsa. i figured i'd try the same thing. I used the same alsa upgrade script i used last time [URL] and it fixed the jack sensing and the sound worked perfectly... for about 5 minutes. after a short while of playing audio, sound would stop playing. i'd stop getting sound from video files, audio files, and even from my browser. i'd have to reboot to get sound again... only to lose it again in about 10 minutes. Now it's regressed to the point where i have no sound even after i reboot.

weird thing is, when i test out an audio file with aplay, it works... even if i just get garbage sound from some mp3 files.

anyway, i've got an HP dv7 and this is my aplay -l output

sleepee@sleepee-laptop:~$ aplay -l

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound - Alsa Blank Window (Lucid 2.6.34 Kernel)

Sep 4, 2010

I just updated the kernel to fix nvidia video problem. But now I have problem of no sound. I think it may be unrelated to the upgrade of kernel because most or all of the symptoms were already present, or the upgrade may have complicated things even more. Another recent symptom in conjunction with this problem is that "restart" and "shutdown" from panel dropdown do not work -- they just log out. May or may not be related at all.

Here is link to output of alsa-info.sh: [URL].
I saw this thread about upgrading alsa, but it seems to indicate that later than 2.6.32 kernel not supported (????): [URL]
Here is my /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf. The last line, "options snd-hda-intel model=basic" was from suggestions I found in other threads.

Ubuntu :: Use Pulseaudio Instead Of Alsa?

Debian :: PulseAudio And ALSA - How These Two Interact

May 8, 2011

Regarding ALSA and PulseAudio - Explanation on how these two interact. After installing Debian I realised that my sound control (Volume Control: HDA Intel ALSA mixer) was different from what I had with Ubuntu where it would display a window called "Sound properties" in which allowed me to control the sound of each program running - I believe this is the PulseAudio aspect. (If I'm wrong at this point please correct me)

Now I have managed to get PulseAudio setup correctly for me (not as easily as Ubuntu but I moved to Debian to learn, not be spoon fed), however the way in which I did it may of been wrong - pretty much just went to synaptic and installed everything with PulseAudio in its name

Currently the sound icon in my top Gnome panel (within the notification area applet) has the ALSA mixer, sometimes when I log on it has the PulseAudio one (Sound preferences window), I don't really mind which one is loaded thanks to the PulseAudio Volume Control program (under Sound & Video). Is there a way though to stick with just one?

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Configuring Alsa (or Alsa-oss) After Hardware Upgrade?

I have recently been forced to do a hardware upgrade (my previous mobo died). Now, sounds works ok with,amarok because kde has recognized the new hardware and switched to it.

Debian Hardware :: ALSA - PulseAudio And Microphone On An Audigy2

Sep 22, 2010

I've recently switched to Debian Squeeze x64 from Kubuntu 10.04 x64. Overall, I like Debian.

I have one small problem: I play Runescape occasionally, which requires Java. On Kubuntu, I'd use Sun Java, however on Debian it just crashes.

So, I decided to use OpenJDK. Now OpenJDK works fine... But I can't get it to work with ALSA audio output. I installed PulseAudio, and that took care of -that- problem.

Now, currently I have both ALSA and PulseAudio installed. For playback, it works great. PulseAudio is a bit laggy, which isn't too noticeable in Runescape, and for things like media, it seems to work OK. For TF2, which I play through Wine however... No. So, I set that to ALSA, and -that- worked right.

Now comes my main problem: I can't get mic input. I'm trying to use Teamspeak 3(proprietary), and while audio output works, I can't get any input.

TS3 lets me use ALSA or Pulse(along with a couple more), but:

1. Selecting PulseAudio lets me select "SB Audigy Analog Mono", the same thing but a "monitor", and "Default Input Device". None of those work, I get "Error: could not open the selected capture device". On top of that, in the PulseAudio control panel, I get zero level on the monitor, making me think its not setup correctly.

2. Selecting ALSA gives me a whole list of options... But they appear to be audio -outputs-, not capture devices. Also, I get the same error as above.

When running "arecord -l", I get:

Of these, I believe the first one was what worked on Kubuntu. Now, of note is that I'm using my "Line in 2" port for capture; On my previous installations I'd simply set its volume with alsamixer and be done with it.

That all being said, I need a solution to one of these three problems:

1. How can I get OpenJDK to work with ALSA, and thereby remove PulseAudio; get everything standardized with ALSA like I had on Kubuntu, OR

2. How can I remove PulseAudio lag, and get the mic working with that, remove ALSA and get everything standardized with PulseAudio, OR

3. How can I simply make my mic work with the current setup?

Any of those will do. I just need to get my mic working.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Skype Can Only See Pulseaudio But Not Alsa Devices

Feb 26, 2010

i am having a problem with skype that i wasn't having before, and afaik skype hasn't been upgraded recently, so something else presumably has changed.

because of driver issues i have to use an external usb audio interface to do voip. this interface is not connected to the pulseaudio server. i am able to connect it to jackd and it works fine for both audio in and out. however it no longer shows up in the list of sound devices available to skype. this used not to be the case. i have tried stopping and restarting skype, as well as unplugging and reattaching the interface. the interface does not show up in pulseaudio manager in the lists of devices.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Lost Simultaneous Use Of ALSA And PulseAudio?

Nov 7, 2010

i am using ubuntu 10.04 lts "lucid lynx", and has been encountering problems with audio recently.

i found out for some reason that my system fails to produce sound through pulseaudio, especially when an application is using it (e.g audacious).

the details of the problem:

1. i am using the pulseaudio equalizer from the repository, and i set a program (e.g. audacious) to use pulseaudio so that i can activate the equalizer.

2. while playing, all of my other applications lose the ability to produce any sound, and changing back to alsa during playback (which is using pulseaudio) in audacious indicates that the device is busy. examples include the loss of sound while playing a video from videos.

rough breakdown of what i want to (be able to) do: have sound for all applications using it, for example being able to play a video in videos from my browser and play music in audacious simultaneously.

is there a workaround for this? i'd like to think that there is, but so far my search returned nil.

Debian :: Installed/removed Pulseaudio - Lost ALSA

Jan 8, 2010

At one point, I thought I needed pulseaudio for sound, so I messed around with installing it, even though at the time I had ALSA installed. (suffice to say, I know very little about linux sound). Pulseaudio never did work, I removed it with aptitude. But now ALSA seems to reach to pulseaudio for some reason.


More confusing is that there are no "alsa" looking processes in ps -A. But apparently, the basics are there


There's only one thing in init.d that seems relevent to alsa:


But doing this does not help anything. Does anyone know what to do from here?

And because I'm curious, how come I get sound from Flash Player and Audacity with no problem?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Midi With Alsa Oss Emulation And Pulseaudio?

Sep 15, 2010

I'm under Ubuntu 8.04 LTS Hardy Heron using pulseaudio. I've got 2 soundcards : one internal AC97 7.1 without midi (card 0 in ALSA) and a PCI C-MEDIA 2.1 with OPL3 midi (card 3 in ALSA) I have sound in most ALSA or OSS applications with full 7.1 + 2.1 duplex. I have MIDI playback in any ALSA MIDI players (client 29:0 in ALSA).

I'm trying to run Final Doom for W95 on WINE with OSS driver. I have sound effects but no MIDI music. I tryed with padsp and aoss wrappers. I know I can use ALSA driver in wine or timidity, but I would rather use padsp + hardware MIDI if possible. How do I configure ALSA OSS emulation for MIDI playback and check that it's working ? I tryed playmidi but whatever I told it, it couldn't find any midi device.

Fedora :: No Sound In JuK Or VLC After Removing Pulseaudio

Aug 21, 2011

I just removed Pulseaudio from both Fedora and Kubuntu due to the way it stalls other programs from launching after logging into KDE. After rebooting Kubuntu, KDE sounds, JuK and VLC all had sound, presumably via ALSA.

However, Fedora has KDE sounds but no sound in JuK or VLC. When I launch JuK, KDE reports that the HDA Intel analogue device does not work. Could this relate to Gstreamer? If Fedora falls back to ALSA if Pulseaudio is removed, does Gstreamer require additional plugins? Kubuntu has "gstreamer0.10-alsa", but Fedora doesn't seem to have an equivalent.
