Description Kelsang Tsenle 2007-03-09 16:11:13 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20061011 Fedora/ Firefox/

Description of problem:
The soundcard in this notebook is a 'Sigma Tel High Definition Audio CODEC, Location 65535'. (That's what Windows XP says, at least, I don't know another way to check. :) )

The audio configuration program (system-config-soundcard) recignizes this card as an ATI card, model 'SB450 HDA Audio' and tries to use the module 'snd-hda-intel'.

It doesn't play the test sound, though, and asks me to file a bug report here.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
system-config-soundcard-2.0.3-2.fc6, alsa-lib-1.0.12-2.fc6, alsa-utils-1.0.12-3.fc6

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open system-config-soundcard
2. enter the root password
3. click on the 'play' button is 'Sound test'

Actual Results:
The 'Stopped' label is replaced by the 'Paying' label, but there isn't any sound. After a few seconds there's a window asking 'Did you hear the sample sound?'

Expected Results:
Roughly the same, but with sound.

Comment 3 Martin Stransky 2007-03-21 14:50:33 UTC
from dmesg:

hda_intel: azx_get_response timeout, switching to single_cmd mode...
hda_codec: invalid dep_range_val 0:7fff
hda_codec: invalid dep_range_val 0:7fff

hda-intel: Invalid position buffer, using LPIB read method instead.

Looks like a problem in drivers. Please report it to the ALSA Project
(, they're authors of linux sound system.
