Well, i already disabled the onboard sound card.
the x-fi is much better than the onboard sound card
plus i couldnt get 7.1 from onboard in linux.
and right now i'm again without sound.
same error in dmesg
Code: Select all
[ +0,007087] snd_ctxfi 0000:28:00.0: chip 20K2 model SB0880 (1102:0043) is found
[ +0,000009] snd_ctxfi 0000:28:00.0: enabling device (0000 -> 0002)
[ +0,002824] snd_ctxfi 0000:28:00.0: PLL initialization failed!!!
[ +0,000017] clocksource: Switched to clocksource hpet
[ +0,000067] snd_ctxfi 0000:28:00.0: Something wrong!!!
[ +0,000011] snd_ctxfi: probe of 0000:28:00.0 failed with error -16
so, focus is on the x-fi card. all other cards are disable (bios for onboard and blacklist for nvidia)
is there any way to force initialization of the card after the boot?
edit: i've tried sudo modprobe -r snd_ctxfi and sudo modprobe snd_ctxfi twice
1st time i had the same error in dmesg
2nd time computer started to work very very hard and eventually linux kind of crashed. monitor went offline and i started to had a "beep" from soundcard. had to reset the computer.
