So, I've managed to compile the necessary modules, install ALSA, and unmute the sound device I want to use. It shows up in /proc/asound/cards, and the master and PCM are both unmuted in alsamixer. ALSA is set to start during boot.

I'm at a loss as to what I should try next, so I'll just post some relevant info in hopes that someone can help me

/proc/asound/cards:
Code:

jason@jason-gentoo ~ $ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [NVidia         ]: HDA-Intel - HDA NVidia               <---- The one I want to use
                      HDA NVidia at 0xdfdf4000 irq 22
 1 [Generic        ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic
                      HD-Audio Generic at 0xdffbc000 irq 44


alsamixer: http://i.imgur.com/QdWRXvF.png

If there's any other output anyone wants to see, I'm happy to oblige

You haven't even stated what the problem is.

..oh. The problem is that sound does not come out of my speakers when I try playing videos with mplayer, or try using speaker-test.

Useful debugging info:
Code:
wget -O alsa-info.sh http://www.alsa-project.org/alsa-info.sh
bash alsa-info.sh --upload

Then show us the URL that the script shows at the end.

So does that mean the issue is that the card is not using the right sound device by default?

Could be. Only you know that. Google for the various methods to set the default device, and try them ;)

I've tried running speakertest on all 3 sound devices, and still nothing. Really the only one that should matter is hw:0:0, because that is the analog output of the card that I want to use, but I tried all of them regardless.

This is what I tried:

Code:

speaker-test -D hw:0,0 -c 2
speaker-test -D hw:0,1 -c 2
speaker-test -D hw:0,2 -c 2


None of them throw errors, I'm just not hearing anything..

Still no sound :?

Can u check aplay -L for devices list
and try

aplay -D device_name some_wave_file.wav

where device_name u take from aplay -L ( its like: hdmi:CARD=NVidia,DEV=0 )
for me speaker test just say only device is busy, nothing more
but aplay plays

( I had similar problem yesterday after kernel upgrade to 3.9.1, but I set default device using kde systemsettings )
