Hi, I can't get my sound card to work with kernel 2.6.32-tuxonice. Insufficient drivers are loaded... though I don't know what is missing. Here is the info:
Code:
# lspci |grep -i audio
03:00.0 Audio device: Creative Labs [SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio] CA0110-IBG

Code:
~ # lsmod |grep snd
snd_seq_oss            23439  0

snd_seq_device          4373  2 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq
snd_pcm_oss            29421  0

soundcore               4479  1 snd
snd_page_alloc          5777  1 snd_pcm

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

Does that mean you had it working in the previous kernel and the update broke it?

Here's a thread you might find helpful. It also points back to a thread on these forums.

Looks like Creative has been making it necessary to be creative. :P

No, this is a new install. I'm sorry that wasn't clear.

Also can you post the output of:

Code:

dmesg | grep -10 -i snd


Just to see what the kernel has to say about sound drivers if anything.

There is no output from this command.

This thread seems pretty old. (Ranging Aug 06-Jul 08). It also is primarily about ubuntu and "creative" solutions (as you suggested). I'm hoping that since then this thing has stabilized. Do you have experience that the thread leads to working solution?

Using http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/, I found that maybe this sound card should be using snd_hda_intel (snd_hda_codec_ca0110). I compiled this and still nothing.

Thanks again.

I want to take a look at the driver. Can you post lspci -n?

I have the same soundcard and it's not working ... It seems there's a problem with the communication between the soundcard and the pci-e bridge or something like this. The driver used ist snd-hda-intel with the snd_hda_codec_ca0110 - codec.

there are different threads on alsa-devel which are talking about those problems:

http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.alsa.devel/66096
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.alsa.devel/67447
http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.alsa.devel/66072

I tried it with media-sound/alsa-driver-9999, but it still doesn't work.

besides, here my "lspci -nn":
Code:

05:00.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Creative Labs [SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio] CA0110-IBG PCI to PCIe Bridge [1102:7006]
06:00.0 Audio device [0403]: Creative Labs [SB X-Fi Xtreme Audio] CA0110-IBG [1102:0009]

Yep, snd-hda-intel is the driver listed (http://kmuto.jp/debian/hcl/ which you used). Put lspci -n into this form and make sure you have all other listed drivers in your kernel. I also recommend, if I haven't yet, Pappy's kernel seeds (kernel-seeds.org). Might not solve your audio card problem but it'll give you a sleeker, more tuned kernel.

Also take a look at this page: http://opensource.creative.com/soundcard.html

I used this sound card for about 1 hour and then returned it to the store. The sound card is not an Soundblaster Creative XFI class sound card. When configuring the audio select the Intel HD audio and then select the different audio codecs. The one you'll want is listed in there listed as CA0110-IBG.

bump again... more months have passed. Not a squeak out of the speakers.

After kernel updates... the alsaconf appears to be successful and there are options under alsamixer. Everything is unmuted and the speakers work otherwise... any other possible stupid mistakes? I'm willing to consider anything.

Current modules loaded:
Code:
snd_seq_oss            23487  0
snd_seq_midi_event      4476  1 snd_seq_oss
snd_seq                41901  4 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi_event
snd_seq_device          4389  2 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq
snd_pcm_oss            29549  0

snd_hda_intel          17666  7
snd_hda_codec          38909  2 snd_hda_codec_ca0110,snd_hda_intel

possible to pastebin your most recent kernel config?

snd-hda-intel should typically "just work", not sure where the disconnect is happening if you've already gone through alsamixer and unmuted everything. Only thing I can gather is maybe a driver conflict, but that's a shot in the dark.
