Maya - No sound after login with new graphics card

Postby WeJaHe on Sun Feb 24, 2013 9:43 am

Hello.

I hear the login beep and the welcome sound just right after login, but then my sound systems malfunctions.

Each sound-related application (VLC player, Banshee, ...., Adobe Flash plugin) crashes or freezes.
In particular, I can not start the "Sound" menu in my control center. It crashes silently.

I suppose the error comes from a recent hardware change. I recently exchanged my old Nvidia graphics for a Sapphire HD 7750.
First I had the typical "AMD unsupported hardware" watermark, which vanished after I installed the post-release driver.

Maybe it is related to the new graphics card being HDMI. It seems to have its own audio device (??):

I just noted that in fact, the post-release driver for my graphic cards isn't even in use.
"This driver is activated but currently not in use."

My xorg.conf
Code: Select all
Section "Screen"
        Identifier      "Default Screen"
        DefaultDepth    24
EndSection

Section "Module"
        Load    "glx"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier      "Default Device"
        Option  "NoLogo"        "True"
EndSection

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

ONLY when there is no optional solution...

zerozero recommended this driver software project for me, it uses the driver the system thinks is best for you

i had this problem yesterday too and reinstalled Linux Mint and now using "Bumblebee 3.0" as driver even when Mesa is still shown active

As far as I understand, Bumblebee is for nvidia, not for amd/ati.

Strangely,

Code: Select all
aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav


does just hang, while

Code: Select all
sudo aplay /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav
Home directory /home/martin not ours.
Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono


produces the desired audio output.
