    alsa snd_intel8x0 issue


    I've installed alsa on a gentoo 2.6.16-r7 system. I have the onboard sound controller of an intel 845G chipset:
    lspci:
    00:1f.5 Multimedia audio controller: Intel Corporation 82801DB/DBL/DBM (ICH4/ICH4-L/ICH4-M) AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 01)
    the loaded modules:
    snd_intel8x0 26780 0
    snd_pcm_oss 35232 0
    snd_mixer_oss 14592 1 snd_pcm_oss
    snd_seq_oss 29824 0
    snd_seq_device 6024 1 snd_seq_oss
    snd_seq_midi_event 5888 1 snd_seq_oss
    snd_seq 43440 4 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi_event
    snd_ac97_codec 81184 1 snd_intel8x0
    snd_ac97_bus 2176 1 snd_ac97_codec
    snd_pcm 69512 3 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm_oss,snd_ac97_codec
    snd_timer 18436 2 snd_seq,snd_pcm
    snd 43364 9 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_seq_oss ,snd_seq_device,snd_seq,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm,snd _timer
    snd_page_alloc 8072 2 snd_intel8x0,snd_pcm

    I-ve played a lot with alsamixer, alsaconf, and still has no sound. This is screwing up my third day! I want some music with Linux!
    kde is silent; cat /dev/urandom > /dev/dsp does nothing.
    Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks

    Very good&clear instructions there, "fransman".

    I think that should work very well.

    thanks Antidrugue

    still no solution. I think I'm gonna buy a sound card. ...not with Intel chip.
    It's not that I have something against Intel, but I cannot find any other solution.

    modprobe snd-intel8x0 and modprobe snd_intel8x0 loads the same snd_intel8x0 module. In the alsa-driver folder in /lib/modules/<kernel-version>/ there is no snd-intel8x0 module.

    Here is a part of my modprobe.conf:
    alias /dev/mixer snd-mixer-oss
    alias /dev/dsp snd-pcm-oss
    alias /dev/midi snd-seq-oss
    alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
    alias sound-slot-0 snd-intel8x0

    Change distro perhaps?

    I have the same "sound card" as you do and I never had an issue with it.
    Try Arch Linux if you will, it's faguely Gentoo style, it's fast, optimized, and simple.

    Post your cat and new lspci audio controller output ...

    # sudo cat /proc/asound/cards
    # sudo lspci -v

    The same snd_intel8x0 module, maybe thas the way it goes in gentoo, but with a locate on snd-intel8x0 in Ubuntu i'll get.

    name@deblnxsrv3:~$ locate snd-intel8x0
    /lib/modules/2.6.15-23-powerpc/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0m.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.15-23-powerpc/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.15-22-powerpc/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0m.ko
    /lib/modules/2.6.15-22-powerpc/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0.ko
    name@deblnxsrv3:~$

    Hi fransman!

    on yous suggestion I digged deeper in the snd-intel issue, and I realized something strange:
    Indeed, locate snd-intel8x0 gives:
    /lib/modules/2.6.16-gentoo-r7/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0
    and after I rmmod snd_intel8x0, and tried a modprobe snd-intel8x0 with the full path:
    modprobe /lib/modules/2.6.16-gentoo-r7/kernel/sound/pci/snd-intel8x0
    gives this:
    FATAL: Module /lib/modules/2.6.16_gentoo_r7/kernel/sound/pci/snd_intel8x0.ko
    not found.
    so it tries to insert a snd_intel8x0 module
    trying to locate the snd_intel8x0 module gives no result
