Fedora Hardware :: Conflict Between Sound Card And Tv Card?
Dec 30, 2009
My soundcard (a Creative X-Fi Xtreme Music) is running with the unix-driver offered by Creative. But after a restart (without switching power off) I have to switch the sound device in xmms from ALSA to OSS. Also my tv card (an hybrid card from Hauppauge, WIN-TV HVR-1300) is only getting a signal after a restart, before there is no signal found. To get sound while watching tv I'm using one of the following lines, it seems to be random wich of them is working without error:
So it looks like a problem in loading the modules in correct order, but I'm not sure. Perhaps there is also a problem with my nvidia graphic card (see list below for the kind of card), that I have installed with the unix-drivers from nvidia's webpage. To solve this problem I'm now searching since september, when I got my new computer, including:
-graphics: Lead896 D3 X GTX260 Extreme+
-CPU: Intel Core2Duo E8500, 3166 MHz, FSB 775
-mainboard: Asus P5Q-E, P45 F G SA
I just bought a new graphics card and installed it. it works perfectly although my sound worked perfectly this morning and I think the graphics card is overriding my built in sound card. I need help fixing the sound. The graphics card I bought is an ATI Radeon Cedar HD 5450 The sound I want to use is HDA VIA VT82xx when I run alsamixer I get Card:
Trying to install from a 10.04.1 Lucid LiveCD. The computer is pretty old but has Windows XP installed on it currently, which runs. (So it can't be that old!) I boot up and press F6 and I get the screen. When i try to install I get the Ubuntu logo with the 5 white/red dots and there is movement. The activity light on the CD drive flashes regularly and chugs along. At a certain point the screen attempts to change resolution or something and it goes all cyan and messed up. I assume that this is at the point where it attempts to load the graphical disk partition utility or whatever. Is there a way to pass a command line option at the install menu to make it a text only install or at a lower resolution? I'm not sure if it's trying to jump to the default IDID (or whatever it's called) resolution of the LCD monitor, since the video card may not support that resolution or something. (Because the video card is much older than the monitor).
My PC has the ASUS P7H55-M SI motherboard with the audio chipset VIA VT1708S. Under Fedora 13 (64-bit) I have no sound although the audio chipset seems to be properly recognised and supported by the OS.
I used the alsmixer application and I set the volume for all channels, including PCM to their maximum value but still I get no sound. When the OS boots I hear a "click" sound coming from the audio chipset when it is initialised by the kernel but then the sound stops and I hear nothing.
Note that I do not have this problem with Ubuntu 10.04 but I have the same issue with openSUSE 11.3 Milestone 7. My guess is that F13 and openSUSE 11.3 having newer kernel/alsa software versions exhibit this problem due to some bug introduced to the code.
Here is some extra information:

I have an EeePC 4g netbook which only has a 4Gb hard drive and I thought I would like to install Fedora 13 on an 8 Gb SDHC card and use it to boot the netbook.
As neither the netbook nor I have an optical drive, I made a bootable USB memory stick using Unetbootin which boots the netbook and could be used like a live CD to install Fedora.
On booting with the live USB stick, with the blank SD card in place, and clicking on the install icon, the installation starts but then there are 2 problems; the first is that the installer appears to want to install to both the SD card and also the USB stick. There is a tick in the box beside the USB stick which I can't remove.
I decided to ignore that and put a tick in the box beside the SD card but when it got to the point where it creates partitions it said "Could not find enough free space for automatic partitioning. Please use another partitioning method"
Surely 8 GB is more than enough space for partitioning, so where am I going wrong and why does it want to install on the USB stick as well?
I just closed another issue about an unrecognized USB C-Media headset, because the issue seems to be deeper... On an Asus Eee 1001p running Fedora 13, I've run lspci | grep -c audio, which returns 0.
Running alsa-info.sh --no-upload I get a report that tells me that there are no soundcards... Pulseaudio is running though. Also, if I use VirtualBox the sound works fine there (including my USB headset).
I used to have sound, and I'm not sure how it disappeared. I really don't know where to start with this, it's been a pain in the ass all week.
everytime i use alsamixer command i get only the "Master" volume control, and i see the card its using is "Pulseaudio" so i press f6 to select the sound card and i found that i have "default" and "HDA SIS966" so i wanted to know how can i change that "default" to the HDA SIS966?.i tried pressing f6 and selecting the card but when i close alsamixer and run it again i get the "default" sound card again.
i left some pics, the 1st one is what i get when i run alsamixer, the 2nd is the options i got when i try to change the sound card, and the third is what i get with the card HDA SIS966 which is the one i'm trying to get as my default.
My wife is reluctant to move from WinXP so I started my own personal campain to promote fedora at home but my wife complains that I "spend too much time fidling with the thing(PC)" and that "it wasn't the case with WinXP" so I =was looking for ways to impress my wife with fedora's capabilities so I flashed her with compiz and dual screen using our old 52" projection tv as a DVR but rhe problem is that my daughter want to watch her DVDs and my wife want to watch a ..... video.I have a system with two Sound card one embedded on the main board and one on a PCI slot and what I am trying to achive is haveing two applications, like two instances of VLC play their sound on the souncard I select per instance, or one Sound card playing VLC and the other playing a ..... video's sound.
I have looked at pulse audio properties and it detects both of my sound cards just fine and it plays wonderfully on either but that is just it... it will pay on either but not both.I have read that you can configure pulse audio to use your second sound card as sorround or duplicate audio but the idea is dicrete audio from dicrete application. Is there such an use case already supported by pulseaudio?So there might be a solution if I disable Pulse Audio but I rather not but I'm open to either.
I can not set default sound card for alsa. It detects my sound card and I can play audio with xmms when I config that to use alsa and my intel sound card, but other applications which use default alsa sound card, and also pulse audio, can not play any sound.
I have a Dell PowerEdge 840 that has no sound card. I would like to install a completely compatible sound card. I have not been able to find any recommendations for compatible sound cards on these forums, but I have learned that the C-Media chipset is supposed to be well-supported by Linux. There are C-Media sound cards on e-bay for under $10. I was considering a 6ch c-media 5.1 surround sound 3D PCI sound card. I believe the chipset is CM8738. Does anyone know whether this card is supported in F12? Or does anyone care to share any recommendations for sound cards that are known to be compatible with Fedora 12?
My intention is to be able to install a decent, inexpensive, commodity sound card that is known to be compatible with Fedora 12. I would prefer to purchase and install one that I know works rather than guessing and then fiddling with it forever and asking a lot of questions that could have been avoided.
Surprisingly, this information has been very hard for me to find. I understand that there is no Fedora hardware compatibility list, but it seems that a very brief list of hardware that is know to be compatible with the most recent release or two of Fedora could save a lot of time and resources. The purpose of such a brief list wouldn't necessarily be to see if a certain piece of hardware is compatible, but to find a component that is know to be compatible, so as to easily be able to get a completely functional system up and running.
Fedora-13 will not play sound. It's definitely a kernel issue and I am not the only one from what I read elsewhere. Prior to kernel 2.6.28 audio works on this Samsung Q1 Tablet PC. Any kernels from 2.6.28 onwards will not recognize my sound card and therefore won't play sound no matter what. I've proved it running different livecds (Suse, Mandriva, PCLOS, etc.) with kernels 2.6.25, 2.6.27, etc., all with audio. How can I use/import a suitable kernel for Fedora-13 so that it will recognize my sound card (driver snd-hda-intel) on this Q1?
With my Compaq CQ62 it seems I can either have a distro provide a working wifi or a working soundcard but not both. I would love to have Linux working properly. Wireless internet works great in Windows 7. The ethernet works perfectly when I plug directly into my router, but pressing the wireless button will not change the light on it from orange to white or do anything else. Yet a simple distro like crunchbang or kubuntu seems to make the wireless work fine.
They just cant make my soundcard work. Being that there is at least some sort of a protocol for installing wireless drivers, I figured I would go with the distro that gives me SOUND since installing a sound driver seems unheard of or impossible. I have a realtek wireless network card in my laptop that Fedora, one of the biggest names in Linux, seems oblivious to even recognize. When I click on the network icon and go to Manage Connections, the Wireless tab is greyed out and cannot be clicked on.
I know I can use alsamixer in a terminal to adjust the sound for various input/outputs. But when I launch the alsamixergui, I only get Master Volume for Pulse Audio, which does me no good (Experienced the audio bug described in this ..... video [URL] how can I change the sound card in the Gui Mixer (S and F6 does nothing).
I have installed Windows7,and Redhat9 next installed but set as default.Problems:- Sound card is not detected using sound card detector.(I faced no such problem when i had installed Fedora3,and Fedora11) -Modem is not detected too when querying modem. -Could not find in PC (when Fedora was installed)or find and download needed codec packs and plugins so nearly most media could not be played.
i have a creative sound card installed in my system. But it is not working. What I got is a mono sound output. I also check pulse audio volume control but only mono sound it displayed in the play back tab. i checked sound & volume control in system-> preferences -> hardware ->sound system-> preferences -> hardware ->volume control
But no avail it can only play analog front speaker, neither IEC958 centre nor left/right speakers.Actually in this,(F-10) there is no options to check a 5.1 surround sound(which is available in windows explicitly). Can anyone please help me to configure the sound card for a 5.1 surround system?
I have a PC with Fedora Core 5, and only command line available for this PC. I try to use the ALSA sample program to playback a simple sine wave, and I can't get any sound from the audio out. I suspect that the sound card is set as mute. My question is how to unmute the sound card, which is integrated with the VIA82xx mother board.The following is some of the info about the PC and sound card.
After installing an external sound card, Im having some weird issues. The cards chipset is fully supported by suse, (CM8738) so I dont think thats the problem. Besides, I'm getting sound, but not in some applications. The system's sounds work just fine (login, logout themes) amarok plays without any problems, kaffeine, mplayer they all work flawlessly, in fact I can see the difference in quality between the onboard sound and my new card. However, no web browser is able to play any sound at all, firefox, opera or chrome, nothing,zip. Plus, vlc cant reproduce sound either, nor can smplayer.
I've tried switching channels on and off(muting)in kmixer and in alsamixer, on the console, with no results. I disabled the onboard audio on the bios before installing the new card, however my ati video card has integrated sound, which I cant disable.... I used to get this exact same problem randomly with the onboard sound, but I just had to go to kmixer and turn up the "pcm" channel volume, which was set to 0, and I had sound again on my browser. However this card's pcm channel is at max and turning it up or down affects the whole systems volume, not just the browser's. Is it better to just reinstall the sound system, if so how could I do that.
I have an M-Audio Delta 44 sound card, and a USB MIDIinterface device, both are recognized, and work. My problem is as each are seen by alsa as sound cards, sometimes the alsa card numbers switch between boots. Is there a way to set these devices to always have the same card number for alsa
I have just bought a new PC with an ASUS M4A78-AM motherboard with integrated VT1708S 6-channel sound chip in it, so I freshly installed fedora 12 without any issues However, I can't get the surround sound working. I have searched many forums a lot, and haven't found any solution yet.It seems that even the SPDIF output does not work on this sound card, and that is what people talk about on almost every forum / mail list. So I was unable to find almost ANY information regarding ANALOG surround sound.
The motherboard has 3 jacks on it - green for FRONT / 2 speaker set; blue is the line in OR THE REAR-SPEAKER out, and pink is the microphone OR side speaker out in the 6-spk configuration.My speaker configuration is 4.1 [2 front, 2 back and subwoofer]. Line out does not produce any sound.I have uninstalled pulseaudio [sudo yum remove pulseaudio]Now alsamixer shows a lot of controls, but even if I unmute line out and set it to max, it is still not producing any sound.
I recently installed Fodora 14 on a PC with Asus mainboard. CPU is AMD LE-1100. The sound card is Realtek ALC662-GR Azalia High Definition Audio Unfortunately after installation, there is no sound. In fedora, System->Preferences->Sound window, Hardware tab is empty.
I tried to install two versions of sound card driver. One came from the CD of the mainboard called realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x First I tried to run the "install", it went through to the final GUI stage searching for the sound card but failed to find. Then I tried to do a manual install following the readme file. Basically, unpack->configure->make but make failed with the following error message
make: Entering directory '/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x/alsa-driver-1.0.14rc3-4.06x/acore' ..... /lib/modules/220.127.116.11-45.fc14.i686/build/include/linux/types.h:4:23: fatal error: asm/types.h: No such file or directory compilation terminated. make: *** [memalloc.o] Error 1 make: Leaving directory '/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-4.06x/alsa-driver-1.0.14rc3-4.06x/acore' make: *** [compile] Error 1
Later I tried to download another version of the driver from Realtek website realtek-linux-audiopack-5.15 make also failed but with a different error: make -C /lib/modules/18.104.22.168-45.fc14.i686/source SUBDIRS=/home/user/00Sound/realtek-linux-audiopack-5.15/alsa-driver-1.0.23 CPP="gcc -E" CC="gcc" modules ..... make: *** [compile] Error 2
I bought a Diamond Xtreme Sound 5.1 sound card because I had read online that this card was a good choice with Linux and came with universal driver software. I installed the hardware correctly (as it works with WinXP) but I'm not able to get it working with Ubuntu.
I've followed the steps outlined in the Fedora FAQ regarding sound issues. I am attempting to play some MP3 files using RhythmBox, and there's no sound. I have dug a bit deeper. I've tried alsamixer, and when I press F6 (Select Sound Card), I see three entries:
- (default) 0 HDA Intel 1 HDA NVidia
I have tried selecting a different sound card. When I select 1, I see this text: "This sound device does not have any controls". I have an NVidia GeForce 480 video card, but it has been suggested to me that I don't want to use it for sound. My speakers are in my monitor. I would assume that has ramifications on how I set things up for sound within Fedora. I have used some kind of sound test utility by executing this at the command prompt:
"speaker-test -c 2 -t wav".
I hear nothing. I don't know what to do next. If anyone can IM with me using Pidgin, that would be perfect
My USB sound card used to work perfectly, but after i unplugged it, there seems to be a problem. When it is unplugged it is in the multimedia device preference list, but it is greyed out. When i plug the sound card in, nothing happens to the greyed entry, instead a new device shows up with the same name.
When press test on the new entry, it works fine, but it's like pulseaudio dosn't recognize the USB sound card, and the sound just comes out of the internal speakers. Also, if i move the new entry up in the list, it has none effect at all. Sound still comes out of the internal speaker. Does anyone know how i can fix this?
I`m using Fedora 14 and i`ve one problem, i use x-lite phone on windows and what is x-lite alternative for linux ? i`ve found x-lite phone for linux but it dont work fine . It has problems with sound card etc. What do you recommend?
There is no sound card listed in "lspci" and also I receive this error when I use dmesg command: [15.012010] AC'97 0 does not respond - RESET [15.012017] AC'97 0 access is not valid [0xffffffff], removing mixer. [15.012024] Unable to initialize codec #0
I install a copy from an iso of Fedora 14 on a old Dell Computer with some upgrades not prepriatary hardware. One of the hardware problems I am having is getting my Creative Soundblaster 5.1 Live card to work with Fedora 14. I have been looking for a driver and as of yet have not found one that works well. Do you have any suggestions regarding this so I can do some site development on this machine.
