OK, I 'think' this is simple, but I must be missing a dependency here.

I've often done a little more specific tuning of my kernel, however this time... I must have tuned too much.

I've got three kernels in my config now... a 3.3.8 that I built pretty generic, a 3.3.8 kernel (all of these are gentoo-sources) that I tried to minimize what I needed, and a 3.4.9 that I also tried to minimize what I needed.

I have the following...

simple enough I would think... I compile the new kernel.. as with the old with snd_hda_intel.


However upon reboot with a new kernel, the ONLY thing I see is the pulse audio config is the HighDef audio controller, but NOT the analog (sorry, yes I still have 3.5mm jacks.. :-( )


ideas?

Code:

# cat .config | grep SND_HDA
CONFIG_SND_HDA_INTEL=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_PREALLOC_SIZE=64
CONFIG_SND_HDA_HWDEP=y
CONFIG_SND_HDA_RECONFIG=y

To rule out it being a bug with the new kernel, maybe you could take your current slimmed down kernel config and use it with the older "working" kernel.
I've only ever used "make oldconfig" for kernel upgrades, but perhaps it'll work ok for a downgrade as well? Can anyone provide any input on that?

Just copy your slimmed down .config file to the "working" kernel's directory and run "make oldconfig".

If pavucontrol isn't showing the analog outputs, what *does* it show in that device selection?

epsilon72, I have a slimed down 3.3.8 kern AND and working 3.3.8. so I don't think it's a bug with the kernel, but rather something I'm missing in my .config that is a dependency of sometype?

pavucontrol shows a "dummy output" in the slimed down version, where as the non-slimmed down one shows analog output. Under the config tab i ONLY have the High def audio controller, not the "Built in Audio"

Do you have two HDA sound cards? Your lspci output only shows one.

Just one card. (I think...It's on-board It has both analog 3.5mm jack output and HD audio.

I suppose maybe it's seen as two..
I supposed I should repost this.. :-) with both.

both still use the intel_hda drivers though....

It's a Asus MB

I could both both full kernel configs... though... not sure if everyone wants to see 1500 or so lines of config... :roll:

Use wgetpaste to paste them and post links.

You could use vimdiff to compare the working 3.3.8 config and the new non-working config.

Maybe do a diff between the 3.3.8 .config where sound works as expected
and the 3.3.8 .config where some outputs seem to be missing, and post or
pastebin->post that.

While this is a bit of a non-answer to your problem, you might want to look at kernel-seeds.org for guidance in slimming a kernel. He even has seeds available that are very slim and an app on the page I linked that will tell you exactly which modules you need. I have been a kernel configured like this for a long time, and besides being quick to compile, it all my hardware works flawlessly.
