Alsa/OSS

Postby mbiwpeoyc on Sun Jan 04, 2009 4:44 am

Not sure if
A) this is the right place for this or not
B) Machine: ASUS G50V (Best Buy Model). Currently installed with Felicia. The only customization that's on there is using the nvidia non-free drivers.
Problem:
On the live CD I've got sound, right off the bat no complaints. However as soon as I install on my hard drive, I lose sound and get a crackling sound. If I change it manually via: Menu>Control Center>Mulimedia System Selector to OSS I get sound. Yet under the live CD It's very clear it's running ALSA. So the question is how to I get back to having sound at bootup? I'm set for OSS at the moment, but it's still crackly as all hell :(

There is a solution for Intel sound (specifically ICH8 but it works with newer ICH)
viewtopic.php?f=48&t=17801&p=107982&hilit=ich8+alsa#p107982
You switch model=acer to whatever you have or model=auto

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I would love to say this worked but I found a different work around actually. I was going to try that and for some reason my reason system started squeeling until I got to the login screen. The recovery kernel didn't do this. So I looked at /boot/grub/menu.lst and removed the final option of "quiet" for the regular kernel. Now the system boots, doesn't squeel and has sound from the getgo :)

For the record, I'm running an Asus G50V (The best buy model)

Also for the record, the live CD kept erroring on during the installation and various portions wouldn't fire up (terminal, parted, etc...) ended up following this guide http://www.pendrivelinux.com/linux-mint-6-flash-drive-install-via-cd/ to get it on USB and do the install with ZERO errors.

See if this solution doesn't help you:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p= ... ostcount=7

It relates to the same sound card that you have in the G50V.

I also read that add this at the end of you ALSA config might help:

Code: Select all
options snd-hda-intel model=3stack-dig


To edit your ALSA config, type this:

Code: Select all
gksu gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base


You might also try upgrading ALSA:

Edit by Husse - changed sudo to gksu above - do not use sudo for an pp with a GUI
