PCI soundcard EMU 1212M is not detected

Post by koda95 » Tue Sep 16, 2014 2:41 pm

Hello everyone,

Hope someone could help me out here. My older PCI sound card is NOT detected by Mint 17 ... or ANY other Ubuntu-based distros. I have an EMU 1212m sound card (driver = emu10k1). My EMU sound card is not showing anywhere in the "Sound" system setup in Linux Mint.... nor does "Alsamixer" show this sound card.

The strange thing is that when I tried 2 different RPM-based distros (Fedora 20 and OpenSuse 13) ... the sound card were installed correctly and worked like a charm. A couple years ago I was using older versions of Linux Mint (up to version 14).. and also older versions of Ubuntu Studio and Zorin OS, Back then, these "Ubuntu"-based distros installed my sound card perfectly.

So ... I really believe that something has changed with the Ubuntu-branch of hardware detection.

Here's an output from my console:

Code: Select all

Hi,

seems no driver is loaded for it.
Let's see

Code: Select all

sudo inxi -U

Code: Select all

inxi -Fxz

Code: Select all

Lastly, these are identified as sound playback devices....but no trace of my EMU 1212m:

Somehow the system don't "see" my real soundcard... Could it be something with the configuration of the newer Ubuntu-kernel versions? Something that "disables" checking of the old PCI-buses? I really don't know... I'm on a thin ice here...

Re: PCI soundcard EMU 1212M is not detected

Post by PatH57 » Wed Sep 17, 2014 12:33 pm

it's an "older" card so let's try to force it.

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install alsa-utils --reinstall 
Download and install alsa-lib
Here is a link to version 1.0.25-4(the stable version)https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+archive/p ... ig.tar.bz2
Extract the archive and run the following code in the extracted directory

Code: Select all

./configure && make

Code: Select all

sudo make install

Code: Select all

sudo alsa force-reload 
now check your sound settings.

Okay... I now did all of these steps; Reinstalled the alsa-utils, then downloaded sourcecode for alsalibs: configuring, compiling and installing the alsa-libs went just fine.

Then reloaded alsa.... Here's the output of "aplay -l":

Code: Select all

How come it says "Capabilities: <access denied>" for the sound card?

seems you also have an onboard sound card?
could you try disabling it (probably in the bios) and check again.

just noticed this and the fact that you are running a 32 bit version of Mint?

Yes...? What did you have in mind about this?

I run 32 bit ...this time ... but every earlier attempts with other Ubuntu-based distros have been 64-bit versions. I chose 32 bit this time because of my intentions of running different music-production software where I'm planning to use some Windows audio plugins that only will work with 32 bit linux.

The kernel version was just an experiment I did now during these LAST ATTEMPTS - to see if it would give any different results.... All the attempts I did before that, was with the stock Mint kernel.

UPDATE:
I booted back up with the stock kernel again and ran the same tests:

Same results ...no luck. I believe there HAS to be something the Ubuntu-dev.team has changed with the system or kernel (during the last 2-3 years ) that causes this problem. Because, WHY does it work flawless with the latest versions of OpenSuse and Fedora? Both use relatively updated kernels and Alsa-versions.

try one of the 3.15 kernel (I would use 3.15.10 generic)
maybe this could work as it is using a "generic" EMU driver

These cards are not creative cards like the audigy series they are the Emu pro audio cards for music production. The Emu cards are 1000 times better than the creative cards for audio quality and they are very stable in use. They wont have support for a lot of the direct x drivers most games use too.
