NO SOUND!

Postby Branta on Mon Apr 12, 2010 12:20 am

Mint 8 Helena

After a clean install I have no sound.

Here is
ilspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: nVidia Corporation nForce2 IGP2 (rev a2)
00:00.1 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Memory Controller 1 (rev a2)
00:00.2 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Memory Controller 4 (rev a2)
00:00.3 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Memory Controller 3 (rev a2)
00:00.4 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Memory Controller 2 (rev a2)
00:00.5 RAM memory: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Memory Controller 5 (rev a2)
00:01.0 ISA bridge: nVidia Corporation nForce2 ISA Bridge (rev a4)
00:01.1 SMBus: nVidia Corporation nForce2 SMBus (MCP) (rev a2)
00:02.0 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a4)
00:02.1 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a4)
00:02.2 USB Controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 USB Controller (rev a4)
00:04.0 Ethernet controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 Ethernet Controller (rev a1)
00:06.0 Multimedia audio controller: nVidia Corporation nForce2 AC97 Audio Controler (MCP) (rev a1)
00:08.0 PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation nForce2 External PCI Bridge (rev a3)
00:09.0 IDE interface: nVidia Corporation nForce2 IDE (rev a2)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge: nVidia Corporation nForce2 AGP (rev a2)
01:06.0 Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR2413 802.11bg NIC (rev 01)
02:00.0 VGA compatible controller: ATI Technologies Inc Rage 128 PF/PRO AGP 4x TMDS


Control Pannel -->Sound-->Hardware lists no hardware.

I have used different PCI soundboards and the lspci shows the change but no sound or sound device.

What should I do?

What's the output of aplay -l?
[Edit] your original post and add [SOLVED] once your question is resolved.

“The people are my God” stressing the factor determining man’s destiny lies within man not in anything outside man, and thereby defining man as the dominator and remoulder of the world.

Re: NO SOUND: aplay -l

aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
ALSA lib conf.c:1589:(snd_config_load1) _toplevel_:13:0:Unexpected char
ALSA lib conf.c:2850:(snd_config_hook_load) /home/bob/.asoundrc may be old or corrupted: consider to remove or fix it
ALSA lib conf.c:2714:(snd_config_hooks_call) function snd_config_hook_load returned error: Invalid argument
ALSA lib conf.c:3079:(snd_config_update_r) hooks failed, removing configuration
aplay: device_list:232: control open (0): Invalid argument


What should I do . . . though it might be obvious!

Thanks in Advance,

Bob

SOLVED: NO SOUND!

Postby Branta on Mon Apr 12, 2010 7:06 pm

I removed/deleted ~/.asoundrc and that fixed it!

All I had to do was what aplay -l said!

Thanks,

Bob
