Default Soundcard not detected after reboot with Lenny

Hi all,

I have a problem with my on-board sound card. I have an Asus A8N-SLI
motherboard with on-board nVidia CK804 AC'97 audio controller. When I
reboot my computer (Lenny) it is not recognised. I get no sound.

When I run `asoundconf list` I get two choices: HDMI and UART. Neither
gives me sound.

Then I run `alsaconf` as root and it offers me three soundcards to
choose from:

hda-intel: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio
intel8x0: nVidia Corporation CK804 AC'97 Audio Controller (rev a2)
mpu401: snd-mpu401

Strange, since I have no extra soundcards in this system. Just what's on
the motherboard. When I pick the nVidia card and let alsaconf finish
configuration I get working sound, but after a reboot the sound is gone
again.

After I fix my sound with alsaconf, running `asoundconf list` only gives
me one option: CK804.

The contents of /etc/modprobe.d/sound:

====
alias snd-card-0 snd-intel8x0
options snd-intel8x0 index=0
====

The contents of /proc/asound/modules before running alsaconf:

====
0 snd_hda_intel
1 snd_mpu401
====

The contents of /proc/asound/modules after running alsaconf:

====
0 snd_intel8x0
====

Output of lspci:

Any idea how I can fix this issue and have sound working on boot? It has
always worked fine under Etch.

Thanks in advance,

Hi Sander.

I've seen this sort of problem before. It looks like the hda intel card is
being detected first, and grabbing the slot for card0, then the actual sound
card that is set to use card0 can no longer use it, as that slot is occupied.

I'd suggest adding a couple of extra options lines to /etc/modprobe.d/sound,
as below, reboot, and see how that goes.

options snd-hda-intel index=1
options snd-mpu401 index=2

The snd-mpu401 is for the games/midi connection on your soundcard
The snd-hda-intel looks like it's for some sound component on the graphics
card, probably HDMI.

<from your lspci above>
03:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Device 944c
03:00.1 Audio device: ATI Technologies Inc HD48x0 audio

All the best.

Nigel.

Hi Sander.

Nice to see the problem is resolved.

Just a suggestion, but write down these fixes in a notebook. they are often
simple fixes, but easily forgotten after a few months have passed by.

Enjoy the sounds.

Nigel.
