Description of problem: On an ACER (Ferrari 1000) and FC6-X86_64, with the kernel 2.6.18-1.2798 I can hear the sound but when I updated the kernel to 2.6.19 or 2.6.20-1.2925 there is not sound. Actually with the kernel 2.6.20-1.2925 and all the components updated, I can hear the sound test of system-config-soundcard only with the left headphone. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): alsa-lib-1.0.13-1.fc6 alsa-utils-1.0.13-1.fc6 How reproducible: always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:
Comment 1 Martin Stransky 2007-03-21 13:44:28 UTC
Can you please check packages alsa-lib-1.0.14, alsa-utils-1.0.14 from devel or from my test page? (http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/)
Comment 2 esteve 2007-03-27 14:29:37 UTC
After updating alsa-lib and alsa-utils to 1.0.14-0.1.rc1.fc6, the problem remains even worse (no sound on the let headphone)
Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2007-03-27 14:39:34 UTC
I've asked you to update to rc3/rc2, 1.0.14-0.1.rc1.fc6 are packages from fc6.
Comment 4 esteve 2007-03-27 15:34:49 UTC
With alsa-lib-1.0.14-0.1.rc3 alsa-utils-1.0.14-0.1.rc2 kernel 2.6.20-1.2937.fc6 the problem remains, there is not sound even on the left headphone
Comment 5 esteve 2007-03-28 14:10:32 UTC
Please note that alsa-lib-1.0.14-0.1.rc3 alsa-utils-1.0.14-0.1.rc2 kernel 2.6.20-1.2937.fc6 solve a similar problem (bug #231414 ) on a chip ATI SB450 but the Acer Ferrari-1000 has an ATI RS485
Comment 6 Martin Stransky 2007-05-16 12:26:09 UTC
Can you please attach /root/scsconfig.log? (it's generated by system-config-soundcard, on the "System" page)
Comment 8 Martin Stransky 2007-05-22 14:40:54 UTC
You have installed user-space packages alsa-lib-1.0.14-0.1.rc3, alsa-lib-1.0.14-0.1.rc1.fc6 and kernel drivers 1.0.14rc1. So please remove your user-space packages, check my page (http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/) and install the rc4 ones (kernel, alsa-lib and alsa-utils packages).
Comment 9 esteve 2007-05-25 10:44:25 UTC
Created attachment 155443 [details] new scsconfig.log file after the changes After doing that, the problem remains. Please find attached the new scsconfig.log file (Note that although I have installed the alsa-driver-1.0.14-60_rc4.fc6 , alsa-driver-devel-1.0.14-60_rc4.fc6 and alsa-kmdl-2.6.20-1.2948.fc6-1.0.10-60_rc4.fc6 it appears the alsa-driver 1.0.14rc3 in the scsconfig.log)
Comment 10 Martin Stransky 2007-05-25 10:54:12 UTC
yep, you still use the 1.0.14rc3 driver. please try to compile it by yourself, from tarball (but I'm not sure if it really helps you)

(In reply to comment #10) > yep, you still use the 1.0.14rc3 driver. > please try to compile it by yourself, from tarball (but I'm not sure if it > really helps you) I have compiled from tarball the alsa-driver-1.0.14rc4, and installed with make , make install but the 1.0.14rc3 driver is there and it appears again in he scsconfig.log ¿what is wrong?.
Comment 12 Martin Stransky 2007-05-25 12:24:24 UTC
did you reboot your box?
Comment 13 esteve 2007-05-25 12:32:46 UTC
(In reply to comment #12) > did you reboot your box? yes, several times.
Comment 14 esteve 2007-05-25 17:13:27 UTC
Created attachment 155466 [details] new scsconfig.log (with the driver 1.0.14rc4) After the compilation of alsa-driver-1.0.14-60_rc4.fc6 , make install puts the drivers in /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/kernel/sound whereas the system loks at /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/updates/sound So I copied /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/kernel/sound to /lib/modules/2.6.20-1.2948.fc6/updates/sound and now system-config-soundcard recognizes the 1.0.14rcd drivers. But there is not sound. I send you the new scsconfig.log file
Comment 15 Martin Stransky 2007-06-26 15:08:15 UTC
Can you please check the latest drivers? (1.0.14 final, from http://people.redhat.com/stransky/alsa/)
Comment 16 esteve 2007-06-27 10:28:39 UTC
Created attachment 157992 [details] new scsconfig.lof file with the asla-driver-1.0.14 and alsa-lib-1.0.14a-0.6
Comment 17 esteve 2007-06-27 11:40:25 UTC
No sound again. Please find attached the new scsconfig.log file. I suspect that all is due to a problem with the 64bit kernel. In fact there is some one who claims that has not problems with the sound on an Acer Ferrari 1000 with ubuntu-7.04 and that has installed the official WindowsXP Ferrari 1000 wlan broadcom driver using ndiswrapper (rbak.demon.nl/ubuntu/acer_ferrari.php). But when I try to install the same driver I get a message: --kernel is 64 bit, but Windows driver is not 64-bit. -- couldn't load driver bcmwl5 So, surely he (she) has installed the 32 bit kernel.
Comment 18 Martin Stransky 2007-06-27 11:45:04 UTC
hm. I'll move it to kernel because it looks like a regression there. It would be great if you can confirm that the old kernel still works fine for you.
Comment 19 Chuck Ebbert 2007-06-27 20:57:00 UTC
Latest kernel is now 2962, was that tested?
Comment 20 esteve 2007-06-29 10:24:35 UTC
No, but: 1) Ruurt Bak (see rbak.demon.nl/ubuntu/acer_ferrari.php) has not problems with the sound but he told me that he is using the ubuntu 32-bit version. 2) Another user told me that he is using his own compilation of the 2.6.20-1.2952 64-bit kernel and that has sound So probably the problem is on the Fedora rpm that has mis configured somthing ?

Major Intel hda fixes went into that version...

With the 2.6.20-1.2962 fedora kernel, things are even worse. I have re installed the alsa-1.0.14 drivers (since the redhat kernel comes with the oldest .rc1 version). Please see attached the new scsconfig.log file. Now I can't use the camera even after recompiling the gspcav1 drivers and the spcaview fron Michael Xhaard which worked normally with the 2952 kernel. By the way, there is another problem with the wifi because the windows driver for the amd_64 uses more memory than that of the fedora kernel so ndiswrapper gets out of memory (but as I have seen on the net this is a general problem with fedora an the windows drivers that need more than 4M).

Created attachment 158330 [details] new scsconfig.log with the 2962 kernel and 0.14 alsa-drivers
