Have you tried this?

I had a similar problem, I hope it helps. Drivers are one thing, but
codecs another.

Hi, gentoo,

I'm trying to get sound to sound on my new Gentoo box, following the
"Gentoo Linux ALSA Guide". Everything seems to be working fine, except
no sound is coming out of my loudspeakers.

I've checked the obvious things: the speakers are plugged in, switched
on and connected to the appropriate socket on my motherboard (the light
green one).

I have drivers for my motherboard's sound chips compiled into my kernel,
and they are correctly identified by alsamixer. With alsamixer I've
unmuted various things and turned up the volume.

madplay appears to play an mp3 file I have. Just that no actual sound
comes out.

One other strange thing: the titles under the "volume bars" in alsamixer
are very different from the ones in the document: Instead of "Master /
Headphone / Tone / Bass / Treble / 3D Contr / PCM", I've got " Master /
Headphon / Front / Front Mi / Surround / Center / LFE / Side / Line /
Mic / Mic Boos / S/PDIF / S/PDIF D / Beep". Why is this? In
particular, I'm missing the "PCM" volume bar which the documentation
says is so important to unmute.

What am I missing here?

Thanks in advance!

I had a similar problem with an Audigy (CA0106) card. If depends if you have
analogue or digital speakers. If they are analog the S/PDIF slider must be
*muted* or there is no sound. This is counter-intuitive since one's first
action with Alsa is to unmute everything!

Did you get this worked out yet? VERY strange that you don't see pcm
as a mixer control...

It's a bit hard to say much with so little info but I'll offer a
couple of things:

1) IMO Alsa has never run so well when drivers are compiled into the
kernel. I do a lot of audio in Linux and have always had the best
results using modules. I would strongly suggest you give it a try...

2) Under /proc/asound/card0 (or whatever card you are using if you
have more than 1) do you see any pcm directories?

3) Post back a little more info?

cat /proc/asound/cards
aplay -l
aplay -L
lsmod

Good luck,
Mark

I believe the speakers are analogue, but I don't know for sure - there's
nothing in any documentation to say so, and I couldn't find anything
relevant on the net. They're a pair of Altec Lansing "expressionist
BASS", black desk standing speakers that look a bit like daleks
(mechanical badies from the british science fiction series Doctor Who).

I've set both S/PDIF and "S/PDIF Default PCM" to muted. No joy.

Not yet, no.

I've got alsamixer 1.0.21. Could it be that it choses its controls
according to the capabilities of the sound card?

Oh deity! I was hoping not to have to do this. I've never used modules
before, since they are (or were) an unnecessary complication, and might
introduce security risks. Maybe I'll have to read up on this.

, so yes, I can see some pcm directories.

I have Intel HDA and load the necessary drivers as modules. I had to
add some "stuff" to the module configuration to get sound from my card,
which is:

pyrope ~ $ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: Headset [Logitech USB Headset], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC885 Analog [ALC885 Analog]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Intel [HDA Intel], device 1: ALC885 Digital [ALC885 Digital]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

It was the ALC885 that was troublesome to get going. Have a look in
/usr/src/linux/Documentation/sound/alsa/ at the HD*.txt for information.

Good luck,
Roger

You probably won't need modules. Module configuration options can
usually be replaced by kernel options in Grub.

OK, so did you run alsaconf? This will often (but in my experience not
always) unmute everything required to get sound. However MANY people
(including myself for about a day) have had problems with the
HDA-Intel stuff. I'm not exactly sure what HDA ATI SB means thought.

If alsaconf finds and unmutes what you need to get sound then alsa run
alsactl store to save state.

BTW - On a new motherboard I found the Intel HDA analog output (the
green plug is analog) wouldn't drive cheap speakers at all. I get
sound on that output if I use headphones or a power amp but nothing at
all when driving cheap speakers with no power amp. That's the first
motherboard I've had which had this problem.

If you have some good headphones give them a try.

OK - what did you put in /etc/modprobe.d/alsa? Here's mine:

firefly ~ # cat /etc/modprobe.d/alsa.conf

OK - I get that you don't want to, and that you have good reasons, but
I'm suggesting you do it at least for debug. Once you have it working
you can try building them into the kernel. I will report that I've had
trouble over the years doing this, but I've used a lot of strange
cards here so maybe it's old issues that have been fixed.

I know the Alsa developers used to insist we do it with modules. That
was 1999-2000 so likely it's all fixed but I still use modules here.

So it seems that the Intel SB cards - what's SB? Sound Blaster? - is
being chosen as default. That implies to me it's got a reasonable
driver.

It may well be that the card is routing audio to the digital output
when you are trying to get analog.
