Ubuntu :: Upgrade Realtek ALC888 Drivers Now Cannot Detect ANY Sound Card
I'm using Xubuntu Natty at the moment, on an Acer Aspire 5739G. Figured I would go to Realtek's site and get the most recent soundcard driver, since the built-in subwoofer has never worked on Linux for me.
I used the automatic install script, then when it tried to probe for other devices, suddenly I had no sound.
I'm currently getting
korin@corrosion:~$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:240: no soundcards found...
I tried reinstalling the ALSA driver, but to no avail. I now have no sound, and no idea a) why this failed, and b)

Ubuntu Installation :: Realtek ALC888 And 9.10 32 Bit?
Has anyone successfully installed the driver for this sound card? I'm interested in obtaining the 5.1 sound through coaxial S/PDIF but I am far from getting there. The manufacturer has a driver for linux but I cannot build it because of a deprecated package in 9.10 release (alsa-utils). I tried to force an install of the package but I ran into other errors. Right now I sometimes get sound (not 5.1) but it's far from being reliable. At this moment I get no sound through the coaxial output without even restarting the machine so I have no idea what happened.
PS: My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-M78SM-S2H with a GeForce 8200 chipset.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: GA-770TA-UD3 With ALC888 - Scratchy Sound In Games?
I am using 10.04 64-bit on a GA-770TA-UD3 motherboard with onboard Realtek ALC888 audio chip. I'm having scratchy sound with games like World of goo and Penumbra. I solved the problem for Penumbra by selecting OSS option instead of ALSA from the settings menu but I'dont have that option in World of goo (and many other games).I have no problem with video or audio files. The board is [URL]..

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Surround Sound With ALC888 Intel DG31PR Gude?
Well i will write this down one more time i hope you don't delete it again To enable surround sound with ALC888 on Intel DG31PR for all versions of ubuntu inluding Lucid.(this works on other distros with alsa as well) gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf Find this line (if there is no such line (or the file is empty) it doesn't matter just add the next line and save it)(note that on older Ubuntu versions the file is named "alsa-base" as far as i remember): # Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0
Add this line after the #Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index0: options snd_hda_intel model=3stack-6ch-dig Then use this command to edit pukeaudio: gksu gedit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf
Find this line:
; default-sample-channels = 2
Change it to (make sure to remove the ; in front of it):
default-sample-channels = 6

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound - Realtek HD Audio ?
Well I installed Ubuntu 10.10 64Bit along side Windows 7, and I've been unable to get any sounds working, apart from the log on sound. So I tried installing some drivers, and now there is no sound at all, and no sound devices show up in System-Preferences-Sound-hardware
I'm using the on board HD Audio (ALC 889A) and using the optical Audio out for 5.1 Surround sound.
I've tried just using the Stereo ( Green Jack ) out, and still nothing. The suggestions on the on the Ubuntu site, and the following post didn't seem to work either.
I Can't find a great deal of posts with the Realtek HD audio.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Realtek ATI HDMI Audio No Sound In 9.10?
I was running Ubuntu 9.04 and just upgraded to 9.10 recently. I see many others are having problems with their sound. I too do not have sound. I did get sound running briefly with an Alsa update, but it was muffled. In trying many other fixes, I again have no sound and can not resolve it. I am thinking of burning a new cd and doing a fresh install and starting over.
My lap top is an MSI GT725 US model with an HD4850 mobility graphics card. I dual boot between Vista 32 bit and Ubuntu.
Has anyone else had any luck getting the Realtek ATI sound working in 9.10?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Realtek ALC 883 Soundcard Recognized But No Sound
I have an MSI S420 with a realtek alc883 onboard. I upgraded from ubutu 8.04 to 10.4 recently, The sound worked in 8.04 although the mic did't work and the same thing in 8.10 (i went through all upgrades) it stopped working at all in 9.04 onwards.
If i did Lspci -v it did say the name of my card, ( I unmuted all in alsamixer and got the codecs but even a test soud won't work) I also dowloaded a driver from Realtek itself, that didn't work.
Then I edited alsabace.conf some more. I tried every one that could possily be it at [URL] including all that said MSI.
I then tried Lordraidens comprehensive sound guide from step 1 to step 5, I used the module-assistant and istalled a driver that was called "hda-realtek-codec" or so. It was the only appropriate one on the list.
I also run into someoe with thesame problem. [URL]
i think ill give up and use the 8.10 that is still on a other partition

Ubuntu :: Add RealTek ALC880 Driver So The Sound Will Work?
Sound works with Jaunty Jackal. Does not work with Lucid Lynx. It appears that Lucid Lynx will only acknowledge that I have a modem as a sound card. I just want to add my RealTek ALC880 driver so the sound will work. I've made sure that I have audio privileges, I made sure that nothing is muted using alsamixer. I've been looking at threads and documentation for four days just to fix the sound issue and so I can be prepared in case this 'feature' ends up being continued in Maverick Meerkat and when I upgrade I can use M.M. with minimal fuss.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Realtek HD Audio Sound - Not Working?
I'm running Ubuntu 9.10, but so far I've been unable to get sound to work. I know my sound card is Realtek, because I've had to install the HD Audio Codec Driver when I was on Windows. I downloaded the driver for Linux and it is currently sitting in my home folder. When I tried to Code:sudo ./installthe driver, it failed for the following reason:
WARNING!!! The mixer channels for the ALSA driver are muted by default!!!

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Surround Sound On Realtek ALC892?
I've been trying to get my surround sound(5.1) to work for the past couple of of days, followed a number of guides, but nothing seems to get it working at all. I'm connecting the speakers using 3 analogue audio cables, I have tested and they work fine under Windows. When I go into the Sound options in Ubuntu I don't see a 5.1 profile listed under the Hardware tab, only stereo(and that works fine).
The sound controller is a Realtek ALC892 built-in to my mobo(Gigabyte P55A-UD3).
Here is some info I've seen requested in other threads, I'm running 10.10 RC, but I can assure you it doesn't work under earlier versions.
Linux Yurippe 2.6.35-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Sun Sep 19 20:32:27 UTC 2010 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Slackware :: No Sound With Realtek ALC259?
I installed Slackware 13.1 in a EEE PC 1001px. After the installation I had speaker sound but not using the headphones. Then I ran alsaconf and now I don't have any sound at all!!!
Alsamixer shows the channels: Master - Speaker - PCM - Mic Boost - Mic Boost - Capture.
What can I check to see why this is happening?

Slackware :: Getting Crackling And Intermittent Sound With Realtek ALC889 / Fix It?
I've had a snap, crackle, pop coming from my speakers since I put this machine together, even now, with no reason for any sound to be coming from the speakers. Additionally, the crackling only becomes worse when I play ANY audio regardless of player or source, however the sound does just drop for a few seconds and then back and then off again when there is SUPPOSED to be audio. I understand not working at all, but "kinda" working is more confusing.
I'm running slack64 with the with an updated kernel from current, even though the rest of the machine is stock 13_64. The problem was the same with the original 126.96.36.199 kernel.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: No Sound On Sony Vaio VPB-EB1E0E / Intel HD / Realtek Audio (any Version)
Not exactly sure but tried several fixes and I'm now getting sound.
Not overly loud but decent enough. Funnily enough it sounds louder inside a windows virtual machine!
I've managed to get everything working including built in webcam on my laptop.The only thing I can't get is sound.
I have a Vaio VPC-EB1E0E which has "Intel HD Audio" . sound worked in Windows when I first booted up and used a Realtek Audio driver.
I'm using Kubuntu 10 RC1 - 64 bit (unable to get any earlier version of U/Kubuntu to work - unable to get Fedora to work either).
The closest info I've seen to helping is:
I installed it but wasn't sure how to configure and it still didn't work... (no idea what codec etc)
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset High Definition Audio (rev 05)
Subsystem: Sony Corporation Device 9071
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 22
