Possibly it is not kernel related. I run kernel 3.5.7-gentoo at present, and this did not change on my last update, but sound performance did change. My dmesg now says:
Code:
ALSA device list:
  No soundcards found.
.
.
.
snd_intel8x0 0000:00:1f.5: setting latency timer to 64
00:09: ttyS0 at I/O 0x3f8 (irq = 4) is a 16550A
intel8x0_measure_ac97_clock: measured 50080 usecs (2414 samples)
intel8x0: clocking to 48000

so it looks as though the sound card is recognised, but after ALSA has missed it.

The machine then comes up with no sound. Running alsamixer, using F6 to select the sound card instead of the "default", then unmuting will fix the problem. On shutdown the alsamixer levels are apparently saved, but the trouble recurs on each boot.

Anyone having this problem: can you discern if anything ALSA was recently updated on your machines?

Oddly, nothing directly related to ALSA was updated, but I did move to udev-171. This apparently rebuilt my /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules, which was OK on my desktop but permuted the ethers on my firewall.

So maybe this issue is a udev issue, and not a kernel or ALSA issue...

I don't get the error with older kernel 3.5.x and the sound works fine too. Boot back into 3.7.0 and the error comes back and although sound works, i can barely hear it.

I modified the restore() function in the init.d script to make it more verbose, and saw that my problem was with CARDNUM=1. In my case, that's HDA NVidia (alsamixer -> F6). Took a look at the controls, and yep, there are 4 SPDIF controls under HDA NVidia (the same number of errors I got). I removed HDMI/DisplayPort HD-audio codec support (under Intel HD Audio) in the kernel, and the messages are gone. I still have an HDA NVidia card in alsamixer -> F6, but now there are no controls there and no errors restoring either (of course).

I probably lost HDMI audio out, but I don't use it in my PC anyway...

Good find! Worked for me.

Happy Newyear to all! :mrgreen:

Having this issue also, I am now downgrading my kernel to 3.6.11. See what happens...

I forgot about this until just now, I saw this yesterday and it made me take a look at my kernel configurations.
It seemed as though for some reason when starting out with this config I enabled a lot of things rather then just:
Code:

[*]   Build Realtek HD-audio codec support
:oops:
Which is all I actually needed, stopped alsa, deleted asound.state, rebooted, everything was fine and no errors, re-set audio levels. I'm going to assume that since the problem was HDMI/DisplayPort HD-audio codec support for Jupiter1TX and Fran it was also the problem here :)

Downgrading the kernel provided no improvement so it must be kernel-unrelated.

While others find that disabling HDMI support improves the situation this cannot be a real solution. Moreover, I just need that one :evil:

Still wondering whether it is alsa, udev or something else...

I have tried with kernel 3.6.8, 3.6.11, 3.7.0 and 3.7.1 with lots of modifications and changes for either /etc/init.d/alsasound or kernel changes.

I am always succeeding hearing sounds on login screen, however, after I login the sound is too low that I can barely hear it.

Again, alsamixer -> F6 to detect the soundcard and raise the SPEAKER volume bring me back audio.

I suppose it is ALSA related...

Yeah, sorry for that.

Are you guys using Nvidia graphical card by chance ?

Code:
for card in `cat /proc/asound/cards |sed -e s/^\ // -e /^\ /d -e s/\ \\\[.*$//`;do alsactl -I -f /var/lib/alsa/asound.state restore $card; done
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:3:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:7:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:8:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:9:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state


it's a direct call from what the runscript do.

Now if I look in the asound.state file :

Code:
Tiger ~ # egrep ^st /var/lib/alsa/asound.state
state.NVidia {
state.NVidia_1 {


After this :

Code:
Tiger ~ # alsactl -I -f /var/lib/alsa/asound.state restore 0
Tiger ~ # alsactl -I -f /var/lib/alsa/asound.state restore 1
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:3:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:7:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state

OK.. this is a udev issue. It seems to be with =sys-fs/udev-197-r1. Although I get the set_control error on boot, I have sound.
What I found was with the above version of udev, on boot there were 4 udevadm file not found errors when populating udev. This stopped sounds, hardware acceleration (onchip Intel) and all my DVB cards from being detected correctly.
So I masked this version and rolled back to udev-197 and all is working again!

Same issue: gentoo-sources 3.7.2, gcc-4.6.3, udev-197-r2, NVIDIA GTX 560M, Xfce (in parallel with [mostly unused] KDE and Gnome).
Code:
 # /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
 * WARNING: you are stopping a boot service
 * Caching service dependencies ...
Service `hostapd' needs non existent service `net.wlan0'                                      [ ok ]
 * Storing ALSA Mixer Levels ...                                                              [ ok ]
 * Restoring Mixer Levels ...
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:3:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:7:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:8:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:9:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state     
I have however some additional problems, perhaps related, but probably more from also having pulseaudio installed. When this thing with very low volume appears, I have to manipulate both pulseadio volume and alsamixer volumes and they seem to have a race condition between them and affect eachother. I haven't yet sorted out if one always has preceedance over the other, it seems rather arbitrary. What happens is that if I slide for instance the pulseadio volume slider slowly towards lower, suddenly (at say 15%) all volume controls jump to zero, and sometimes mute is turned on, and I have to flip all mute flags on and of in another unidentified sequence before sound comes back.

I have this feeling that my problem(s) appeared at the same time as these bad filedescriptors. Is there perhaps a connection?

Hi pste,
When you updated to udev-197-rX did you re-emerge all the packages that use udev?

An easy way to see if you have done them all is to "ls -l /usr/lib/udev". This path should not exist as everything has moved to /lib/udev.

Code:
for f in $(equery d udev | cut -f1); do emerge =$f; done && emerge hwids
did it for me.

The "bad file descriptor" issue only effected my server and downgrading udev solved it, however, my laptop is running udev-197-r2 and has no issues with anything.

My laptop info is
Code:

I agree that this may not be solely a udev issue.

I still get the below, but sound works ok.

Code:
# /etc/init.d/alsasound restart

alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:3:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:7:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state

Hi pste,
When you updated to udev-197-rX did you re-emerge all the packages that use udev?

An easy way to see if you have done them all is to "ls -l /usr/lib/udev". This path should not exist as everything has moved to /lib/udev.

Code:
for f in $(equery d udev | cut -f1); do emerge =$f; done && emerge hwids
did it for me.



This only works in bash, how to make it work in zsh :?:

Thanks for this. I wasn't experiencing any weird behavior with my sound, except for the boot message from alsactl. However, I also wasn't aware that all packages that use udev should have been rebuilt.

Using your bash command rebuilt most of the affected packages on my laptop, except for libmtp, (which moved mtp-probe to the new /lib/udev location), and libgphoto2, (which moved check-ptp-camera over). Finally re-emerging alsa-utils fuse libosinfo mdadm ntfs3g and sane-backends moved their respective /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/ rules files over to /lib/udev/rules.d/. Once that was done my /usr/lib/udev directory was removed.

Thanks..

cdstealer and jasn, thanks for great tips, I too wasn't aware of (hadn't noticed) the move of udev rules, mission now completed 8) ! Just a small note (addition). I wasn't perceptive enough to realize this in time myself, and got to do a time consuming manual cleaning of my world file. That is, the great oneliner of cdstealer could perhaps be improved by a simple 'emerge -1 xxx', and inspired by both of you I did the second oneliner to find the remaining packages with leftover udev rules...
Code:
#1 : for f in $(equery d udev | cut -f1); do emerge -v1 =$f; done

#2 : for f in $(equery b /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/* | cut -f1); do emerge -v1 =$f; done

Altough I'm afraid my little annoying volumecontrol problem persists. What happens is that pulsadio volume control increases alsamixer alright (in a slightly lagging manner) but does not decrease it. Alsamixer volumecontrol make pulseadio volume follow, but 100% alsa means ~80% pulse and when alsa volume makes pulse reduce past 18% it jumps to zero. Furthermore, everytime a sound application is started, say banshee, pulse jumps to 100% (making alsa follow) and your ears start to ache... which perhaps is the most annoying thing about this, together with the fact that banshee now has started to crash (spontanteosly shut down without a clue about why nor producing any logs). It sounds to me like a calibration/interaction problem between alsa and pulse, but I have no idea where to start look for configurations...

Code:
"file descriptor in bad state"


I had the same, but I didn't pay much attention and eventually it went away.

Somewhere in 3.7.2 changelog mentions some ALSA fixes, specifically about HDA driver.
