Audio detected but No /proc/asound, alsa-restore term 19

Postby FieroGT42 on Sat Mar 30, 2013 2:55 pm

Foxconn C51 with NVidia NForce 590 AMD / MCP55 / onboard Realtek 882 HD audio.
Running Linux Mint 64 bit on AMD Athlon X2.
Everything works fine in Windows 7 x64.
I have no sound devices visible in the sound control panel.

I am running commands with sudo or su.
I am an administrator.
I have added myself to the Audio and every other group.
I reinstalled the ALSA packages with the softwaremanager and apt-get install.

I'm trying to follow this guide...
https://docs.google.com/doc...ngc5SFLMI/edit?pli=1

If I run the command for step Ac, it shows two audio devices recognized by the system, and ALSA, and activated:
Code: Select all
Sound cards recognized by ALSA, and activated:
00:0e.1 Audio device [0403]: NVIDIA Corporation MCP55 High Definition Audio [10de:0371] (rev a2)
01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: NVIDIA Corporation High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0be4] (rev a1)


... but I think ALSA might be messed up despite reinstalling it:

Code: Select all
sudo su
DEEPBLUE jason # amixer
amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such file or directory
DEEPBLUE jason # alsaconf
alsaconf: command not found
DEEPBLUE jason # aplay -l
aplay: device_list:252: no soundcards found...
DEEPBLUE jason #


Also tried this blacklist fix. Nothing changed afaik:

Grep'ing logs gets me only this:

Code: Select all
DEEPBLUE jason # cat /var/log/dmesg | grep alsa
[   12.350630] init: alsa-restore main process (1088) terminated with status 19


/var/log/boot.log shows nothing odd.

I found this, but I'm not sure where to go from here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/...sa-utils/+bug/989955

Try running sudo service alsa-restore restart manually and see if your card shows with aplay -l command. If it does, restart pulseaudio and sound should be working properly.

Code: Select all
DEEPBLUE jason # service alsa-restore restart
stop: Unknown instance:
start: Job failed to start
DEEPBLUE jason # aplay -l
aplay: device_list:252: no soundcards found...

Running the aadebug script tells me that asound doesn't exist and confirms that the hardware is being recognized:
