Default No Sound since latest updates.

Running fully up to date 8.10, I have no sound on Movie Player, Dragon Player, KMPlayer, VLC Player, gxine. Any suggestions as to what I should do? I've tried a restart.

The motherboard of your computer is probably the source of your sound signal.
The motherboard is made by ASUS and will have a model number shown at startup
time. So you might see A7M-22VM for example, or something like that. Also
there probably is a motherboard manual - a little book of about 100 pages -
in the bit bag and it will say on the cover what motherboard you have. If
you send this information to the list when you make a request the people who
theoretically can help you will have more of the information they need to
give a good answer.

If on the other hand the sound card is discrete, added after the fact and not
integrated into the motherboard, then you can perhaps supply the name and
model, for the same reason.

Being this is Ubuntu 8.10 and there were problems in the beginning
of this version with sound, I suggest you right click the little
speakers in the upper right hand corner by the date. Select to Open
Volume Control and make sure they are turned up.

I've also had problems with sound after update. It seems that the problem
is with packages of the 2.6.24-23 kernel. Maybe some drivers doesn't work.

Because of that I'm working again with the 2.6.24-22 kernel. I've edited
/boot/grub/menu.lst and I've changed the line saying

default 0

to

default 2

You have to put the number corresponding to the 2.6.24-22 kernel in your
menu.lst file (in my case 2).

And the sound works again (at least for me). I don't know if your problem is
the same as mine.

Manuel.

Default No Sound since latest updates.

As an update to all this:
Using a Zen live CD I found that my sound
worked fine. I now have inserted my Ubuntu 8.10 .iso CD and installed
it as a live CD (I know it was as the desktop reverted to the
installation desktop). Again the sound works fine. I'm now back on my
updated 8.10 and once again I have no sound.
Obviously an update has knocked it out. Thanks a lot Ubuntu.

Hi Roger.

I usually go for pulseaudio as the usual suspect, but it appears to be
behaving itself on my Ubuntu Intrepid 8.10 install, on a machine using hda
intel soundcard.

Have a go at opening alsamixer on Gnomes terminal, as user, as below. there
was a problem where the PCM control was either being muted, or set back to
zero when rebooting. I believe that was fixed with a kernel update, but you
never know.

alsamixer -D hw:0

Perhaps you'd also post the output from the following commands.

cat /proc/asound/cards
grep ^Codec /proc/asound/card?/codec*
lsmod | grep snd

Don't give up. Most sound problems are resolvable.

Nigel.

Hi Roger.

I don't see any problems with the output you've posted above, and sound should
be working.

Try running speaker-test as user, and post the output.

Also run the following commands to see what may be grabbing the soundcard, and
preventing you hearing sounds. I ask because of this line from your lsmod
output.
snd_intel8x0********** 37532* 4 (the 4 may be a problem)

lsof -n | grep /dev/dsp
lsof | grep /dev/snd

All the best.

Nigel.
