Fedora Installation :: Audio Soundcard Detection Was Skipped During Install?

Oct 27, 2009

I put "%" before and after my username and name which gave the install an error. So I changed the username to one without the special character '%' but left the name with and the setup proceeded with an error and skipped the other three stages (sound testing, time, hardware setup). But everything seems fine with the install except I have not configured the sound card.

From what I have seen the install is pretty much fine other than the lack of functions which I obviously missed during the preference end section of the install. And so I was wondering is there a way to manually detect and use a easily configure a sound card or any way for that matter? The installation guide of Fedora 11 gives advice that was outdated 'system-configure-soundcard"(or something similar) has been removed since F9.


Currently have a few mixers installed which may be conflicting but the extra mixers were a symptom I created due to the no sound problem. The mixers are definitely not the major cause though. My onboard motherboard sound has not been set up as a module to be run is what I assume but any help would be great.

Ubuntu :: USB Soundcard Playback - No Audio

Apr 27, 2010

I've just bought a very cheap USB sound device as the jacks built into my laptop are practically dead. I bought it as I'd googled around and seen that other people have it working in linux. Anyway, I plug it in and am able to select "USB AUDIO (ALSA)" from the xfce4-mixer. However, I don't get any sound from any applications.

Here is my aplay -l output:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: STAC92xx Analog [STAC92xx Analog]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: ATI HDMI [ATI HDMI]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 2: default [USB AUDIO], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

I can't find any options for the output on alsamixer and don't really know what to do. I'm running Mint with xfce4 on a Dell Studio 15.

Software :: MIDI File - No Audio Output From Standard PC Soundcard?

Aug 6, 2011

have recently installed CentOS 5.6 Final on TWO DIFFERENT desktop PC's, and, on EITHER ONE, I can not get any sound output when using KMid to play a "standard .mid file (the file I am using to experiment with is "Canyon.mid", from the Windoze Media directory, a fairly standard midi audio file, I should think?!). I have normal audio output on both of these machines (.mp3 files, system sounds, etc.), so the specific sound cards are NOT the issue, here!I am thinking I must be missing something, as both of these PC's are completely different CPU types, etc. as well. The only significant similiarity in the two machines is the complete lack of MIDI audio output!And, yea, the soundcards are BOTH MPU-401 compatible, and they both have irq's assigned to this port (or, maybe just one has an irq assigned, I will have to double check...).

Fedora Installation :: Automatic Swap Detection And Mount?

Jun 8, 2011

I've installed FC 15 on a USB stick (it is not a live usb, it is a regular installation on a usb stick), and I am looking for a way to automatically detect and mount swap partitions on a host system where usb stick is plugged in. I am using many FC boxes and almost all of them have a swap partition on the hard drive and I would like to use them even if I boot my system from a usb stick.

No Sound On Ubuntu 10.04 With "soundMAX Integrated Digital HD Audio" Soundcard

Nov 2, 2010

i would like some help, i wanted to setup a ubuntu 10 desktop on some amd64 comp to make it a comp to watch movies and listen to music, but no luck cos i cant get the sound working. i noticed lots of ppl with same soundcard than me having the same problem. ("soundMAX integrated Digital HD Audio" its an onboard video card on my 64 bits nvidia motherboard thats about 5 years old..) old thread about this: [URL]....


-Update BIOS (not even sure if that is required step, but it generally always good idea to do that).
-Get latest ALSA drivers [URL].... I got "1.0.12rc1" but "1.0.11 final" should also do.
-Put "options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 model=3stack" to "/etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base".
-Worked for me after reboot.

i skipped all the parts about *updating, i downloaded that ubuntu install from [URL]... yesterday im pretty sure the alsa drivers should be up to date.........

OpenSUSE Install :: 11.3 And Monitor Detection?

Jul 22, 2010

I opted to blow away my system (no did not save xorg.conf), and do a clean install of 11.3. Not a big deal to blow it away, nothing lost.

Dell Dimension C521, 3GB RAM, Athlon DualCore
OpenSuse 11.3 x64
Nvidia GeForce 6150LE (on mainboard)
Dell 2048FP 24" Monitor, connected via VGA

When doing the install, all appears to go well. I added the "nomodeset" option after the first boot to avoid the graphics issues. KDE comes up and is in 800x600 mode at 50hz. That is the best resolution it will show. All other options in the configure desktop applet are lower. This monitor was driven at 1900x1200 on the same config with 11.2.


In the nVidia-Settings applet (run as root), it shows the display as "CRT-0". 11.2 showed it as a Dell.

OpenSUSE Install :: Re-initialize Soundcard After Reboot (11.3)?

Jan 2, 2011

I have the problem that for working properly my soundcard needs sort of re-initialisation after every reboot (11.3, 64 bit). I have to change a setting in the sound module of yast that causes the yast to rerun its final steps. What is not working otherwise is audio playback from a usb TV-stick (recording is no problem, same as playing an audio/video file). any idea what might be the problem? how to call the final steps of the sound module of yast from the command line, I could at least put that call into boot.local to avoid having to call yast.

Debian Hardware :: Unable To Install Soundblaster X-Fi Soundcard?

Mar 17, 2010

I am a total Newbie in the matter of Linux installation and configuration and I just ran into my first major problem. I have a Dell XPS 720 with a Creative Labs Soundblaster X-Fi extreme Gamer Soundcard. But when I tried to set the Sound-Preferences, I got the following error message:"audiotestsrc wave=sine freq=512 ! audioconvert ! audiosample ! gconfaudiosink: Could not open audio device for playback."By now I know, why the system is unable to open the device, because during the installation of Debian (Lenny) the system recognized another "sounddevice", which is called SP2208WFP. That is my monitor with integrated webcam and microphone. And of course, it doesn't make a noise. So I have disconnected the USB cable to the monitor to avoid an automatic recognition (that costs me 3 important USB plugs) and I tried (now since 3 days) to configure the Sounblaster as the current sound device. But without success. lspci -v shows me, that there is a Soundblaster device:

02:04.0 Audio device: Creative Labs SB X-Fi
Subsystem: Creative Labs Device 6002
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11

OpenSUSE Hardware :: No Sound After Installation Of New Soundcard?

Mar 25, 2010

Recently I installed a new soundcard to my computer, and I don't have any sound anymore in Linux. Now I have in YaST two sound chips, one AC97 and my soundcard Asus Xonar Essence STX. Obviously Linux detected my soundcard since the custom driver called "Virtuoso" is there. However, my soundchip has still the slot 0, and my soundcard is not configured yet. And here I'm stuck, because:

1. when I tried to delete the AC97 entry, YaST hangs (actually y2base or something like that, the sound subprogram). Alternatively, I tried to just disable the driver, but this wasn't possible (unlike with Windows, where you just click a checkbox).

2. when I tried to configure my new soundcard, the configuration program got stuck again - with every of the three alternatives (fast setup, normal setup and custom setup or so).

I also tried whether the old soundchip is still working, plugging in my headphone into the output of the AC97 soundchip, but I didn't hear anything, so system sound really seems to be broken.

Fedora :: Using A Presonus Firebox + Soundcard On 11?

Sep 21, 2009

This is how I got my firebox to work in conjunction with my onboard soundcard (in my case, Intel HDA) on Fedora 11 x86_64. This article assumes you have basic knowledge on jack and qjackctl and a jack-compatible program such as ardour.

My smolt: [URL]

Reasons: Personally, I just wanted to be able to do it and to be able to give a good explanation when people ask me why I'm monitoring recordings through headphones - and because it won't work through the PC speakers wasn't going to cut it. You may also need it because while recording "deaf" might be fine, playback needs to go through your state-of-the-art monitors. You may need it because you have a studio all set up and for some odd reason, you just need to add a firebox in. Of course, if you had a studio, you could have just patched the line outs to your main speakers. But that is besides the point.

After searching for almost 3-4 days, I chanced upon rokit's thread and was very disheartened when he seemed to have found no solution. Today, he solved the connection issues but I wanted more. Unlike him, I wasn't using my firebox as a sound card. It would be a sin to waste my onboard audio capabilities. The Juice (some parts paraphrased from rokit's solution)You need to install the PlanetCCRMA repository. Since I'm using Fedora 11 (x86_64), I used this one. This will install the repositories for you so tat yum will be able to locate the needed updates.

Code: [URL]

If you have jack1 (0.x.x) already installed, you MUST uninstall it. jack2 will NOT work with jack1.

yum remove jack-audio-connection-kit*

The * at the end will also remove the -devel version if you had it installed. Uninstalling jack will remove a lot of existing software that uses jack as a dependancy. Take note of them so you can reinstall them later. Install FFADO. FFADO is the new Freebob from the same developers. It's the driver that will connect jack2 to the firebox. You MUST install this before jack2.


yum install ffado libffado

Install jack2.


yum install jack-audio-connection-kit jack-audio-connection-kit-devel


Like rokit, I have had much trouble running this without the realtime kernel. I ended up installing Fedora in another partition and this is what I have. As a result, I now have no graphics driver and everything looks weird. I will try to install ATI Catalyst 9,9 and if it works I'll post back. If I don't, assume it doesn't.

Fedora Hardware :: F12 After Upgrade USB Soundcard Not Detected?

Dec 30, 2009

I'm using an external Cambridge Audio Dacmagic with F12 and Amarok. This worked great, until I upgraded Fedora this morning. The Dacmagic does not appear anymore in the Multimedia Audio Systems settings, only Pulseaudio is shown. However, in my hardware info widget, the Dacmagic does appear? This is shown as "C-media USB Headphone set". Now I'm totally lost. I did restart Fedora with the Dacmagic on, I did restart the Dacmagic with Fedora running, but nothing changed.Any good suggestions on what I can try next--- Post added at 04:47 PM CST ---------- Previous post was at 03:05 PM CST ----------Isn't the net fun? Poking around, I found I could try "lsusb". The output gives:

Fedora Hardware :: Removed Pulseaudio - No Soundcard Detected Now

[NetGh0st@localhost ~]$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:235: no soundcards found...
[NetGh0st@localhost ~]$ cat /proc/asound/cards


It does not find my soundcard, and I have a nasty feeling that the whole sound module was removed ... i don't know, may be from the kernel...

Fedora :: Audacity Unable To Record Sound From Soundcard

Jul 6, 2011

I'm running Fedora 15 XFCE spin, Audacity 1.3.13-beta and my sound is ALSA/Pulseaudio (I'm not totally sure what these are anyway, are they drivers?) Anyway, when I'm in Audacity and I go to the record options I can choose from default, pulse, and HDA ATI SB:ALC268 Analog (hw:0,0). If I try any of these three options and press record I get static. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like to press record for each of the three options in order.


The last option won't even record nothing, it just doesn't work. Also, if you look where the little picture of the microphone is, the option to drag the input volume is greyed out.
