How many sound cards do you have?
Did you ever have problems with pulseaudio?
Does VLC play music (to check if it's these programs or your hardware/drivers).
What did you try to solve the problem?
In other words: we need details ;)

Please, post the output of:

Code: Select all

Code: Select all

 options snd-hda-intel model=auto
to the bottom of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf (this is the method suggested by slackware)

was a tip from cwwgateway in an other topic that did the tric for me, everything works fine now :)

I'm glad it worked :D . If anyone's curious, the page is here: http://docs.slackware.com/howtos:hardwa ... -hda-intel.

Edit: Ubuntu has a long list of options here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1043568.

I wonder if this works for the other people who have been having audio problems? So far we've come up with three different solutions, the one here, one here: http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=92#p873, and one here: http://forums.solydxk.com/viewtopic.php ... probe#p176.

at least for this similar cards is always one of the options we should consider

Code: Select all

zerozero@solydk ~ $ inxi -Ax
Audio:     Card: Intel 7 Series/C210 Series Chipset Family High Definition Audio Controller 
           driver: snd_hda_intel bus-ID: 00:1b.0 
           Sound: Advanced Linux Sound Architecture ver: k3.7.0-9.dmz.2-liquorix-amd64
sometimes the problem is going to find the right combination: generic and auto look like the most common but for example wizard had to change to a specific laptop model model=asus-laptop

@zerozero/cwwgateway
Could you collect these solutions with the specific hardware in a separate thread?

I think this is something to include in the next Device Driver Manager.

Would you like some of the data from Ubuntu in the thread? Maybe a link would be good; they have a very large database of options.

Edit: I don't know if I ever posted this, but here's my sound card info:

I tried model=auto and it also works for me, I've always used model=asus-laptop by habit as it's recommended for my laptop model (French list here: http://doc.ubuntu-fr.org/audio_intel_hda).
auto seems to be better than generic :lol:

For the audio_intel_hda there is this link
http://www.alsa-project.org/main/index. ... _Intel_HDA

and most importantly, this one
http://git.alsa-project.org/?p=alsa-ker ... xt;hb=HEAD

I have the infamous ALC892 chip and thanks to those links, it works fine now. I used the ALC880 settings to set model name ( in particular "model=3stack-digout"), but that depends on your exact hardware configuration, meaning the exact number and type of output/input jacks. It is also important to run alsamixer in the terminal after changing the model name ( and rebooting) and increase the volume of the outputs/inputs you are using ( usually they are set to zero by default, resulting in no sound)

The setting model=auto reads the BIOS setup while model=generic is , well, a generic configuration that may or may not work. From my experience, setting the correct model name works the best, followed by model=auto and then model=generic if the previous two options fail.
