I've done all I can think of.

I'm not using the NVIDIA card for audio but the onboard Intel chip.

Code:
lspci -vv | grep -i audio
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation C600/X79 series chipset High Definition Audio Controller (rev 06)
03:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK104 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)


Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
  Subdevices: 0/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 9: HDMI 3 [HDMI 3]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0



I get this error every time I use an audio program, aplay, mpg123 as root even though my (onboard) card is there:

Code:
xcb_connection_has_error() returned true



I tried googling this error and I'm not getting anywhere.

Pros I need yer help please!

Physhi,

Code:
00:1b.0 Audio device: Intel Corporation C600/X79 series chipset High Definition Audio Controller (rev 06)
03:00.1 Audio device: NVIDIA Corporation GK104 HDMI Audio Controller (rev a1)

Your defaurt sound card is the Intel one. That helps.

Code:
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC892 Analog [ALC892 Analog]
says that you have the ALC892 codec.
I think that needs CODEC_REALTEK support in the kernel.

What do you have in /dev/snd/

What does amixer -c0 show?

Thanks for the response Neddy

Just checked .config -- This is already in my kernel
Code:
CONFIG_SND_HDA_CODEC_REALTEK=y



Code:
ls /dev/snd/*

/dev/snd/by-id:

Physhi,

That looks good.
Code:
aplay  somefile.wav
should play somefile.wav.
Is your normal user in the audio group?
Code:
$ groups
tty wheel uucp audio cdrom video games kvm cdrw usb users vboxusers scanner wireshark plugdev roy

Needs to include audio. If not, add yourself, log out and log in again.

This may not be relevant to your immediate problem (or it might be the solution), but I want to point out that your kernel is both very old and not even the last of its now long unsupported line. v4.0.5 was released Jun 2015. If your hardware is not substantially older than that, it's possible that a kernel upgrade is required to obtain full support for your devices. Your current kernel might have relevant audio-related bugs that are already fixed upstream (but I know of no specific bugs to back up this speculation). Even if a kernel upgrade is not relevant to your current problem, it's still a good idea on principle.

It was working even before I started to merge new packages. Working on the 30th and the 1st without me doing anything in portage and the same kernel -- it just broke somehow.

Though you have a point... Go the long route and grab a new kernel. You're someone with XP and I'm a regular jacko. I should try your advice.

I've been two days without sound and it's getting to me. :evil:
