I am trying to use a sound applcation (xmms/noatun/rhythmbox/etc) and I find
that I am getting no sound.  I have checked all the sound channels and un-muted
them and turned them onto full volume and still no go.  I have even download an
ogg file and tried to run it from the command line using ogg123 and still no go.
 Interesting thing is if I run ogg123 with the '-d oss' it all seems to work
fine.  I get the following output from ogg123 :
[k@localhost Desktop]$ ogg123 -v noa_061222_053.ogg

Running the system-config-soundcard I can get the tune to play without any problems.

I have included my scsconfig.log log file.

Hello guys,

I have the same problem as the OP on almost identical hardware (Dell Latitude
D820). Running FC6 with ATRPMs, dries and Livna.

By adding 'options snd-hda-intel model=3stack' to
/etc/modprobe.d/sound.localhost, rebooting and fiddling around with alsamixer, I
was able to record sound with Skype Test Call exactly once. After that, the
microphone is totally mute again.

Sound playback has been working fine from day one. I'm mostly using gstreamer.


I'm going to recompile the FC7 SRPMS for alsa and see what happens.

Comment 10 Martin Stransky 2007-07-09 08:13:14 UTC

Comment 11 Marius Andreiana 2007-07-09 09:23:34 UTC
# rpm -qa|grep alsa
(weird, there are 2 alsa-utils)
