PostPosted: Fri Dec 14, 2012 1:02 am    Post subject: Problem with alsasound after Kernel 3.7.0 upgrade Reply with quote

alsasound on boot is displaying this message:

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

workaround to fix sound after login:

alsamixer, hit F6, choose soundcard, raise the volume for Speakers
or
alsactl init

I have tried to change /etc/init.d/alsasound to bypass this error, It is successful till the login page (I hear login sound)
After I login, the volume is really quiet and I barely hear a small noise when running music for example.
I am supposed each time I login to do any of the above workarounds.

Any idea about the problem?

EDIT

Debug log for /etc/init.d/alsasound -d restart

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

I'm going to check this out. I've installed 3.7.0 and need to reboot. Posting to keep this in my "view your posts" lists so I can come back to it.

EDIT:

Rebooted, have no such problem. Let's see if we can figure this out. Please post your emerge --info.

Did you recently upgrade to gentoo-sources-3.7.0? Did this problem start after you upgraded the kernel?

Yes, definitely after upgrade to 3.7.0

I was on 3.6.10 with no audio problem

I'm seeing the "file descriptor in bad state" message at boot as well with 3.7.0 (Intel HDA), using KDE here and once the audio control centre has identified the new devices, and deleted the old, it doesn't appear to have any adverse effect on volumes - save and restore works OK across boots. I haven't tested if the HDMI output through my NVidia card works though, maybe that's what the errors are related to.

I get
Code:
$ sudo /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
 * 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               

but sound works without problems.

FYI, alsamixer detects three cards: HDA ATI SB, HDA NVidia and VF0610 Live! Cam Socialize HD.

EddyC, since you are using the gnome profile, am I correct to assume you are using Gnome? Can you temporarily install some other WM or DE (such as XFCE, LXDM or Fluxbox) and see if you have the same problem?

Hi, I'm using XFCE and I upgraded too. I have the same error but my sound is working too.

It appears as if this is just another bug showing up in 3.7.0. At first blush, 3.7.0 seems to have some pretty intense bugs.

I have one machine that just won't run with it. This is a headless server that somehow forgot that it has reiserfs. I had to rustle up a monitor and power cord and backpedal it to 3.6.8, which of course, booted quite normally.

On this machine, it won't load the wireless driver (ndiswrapper), and I get a general feeling of instability from this batch of source. I'd recommend writing bug reports on all the separate audio issues. You can start with Gentoo's Bugzilla, but you will most likely also have to post a bug report at the kernel-dot-org Bugzilla as well. If the ndiswrapper bug hasn't been fixed yet, I'll probably end my day sending that one along. It's been a while since I posted a bug report. Woohoo! More emails!

Cheers,
Pappy

Not sure if this is related, but for my sound card (creative xfi) I had to reset / save mixer levels after switching to 3.7.0. It would print a similar message to the OP's (didn't write it down though) and cause noise. So something about the asound.state file changed.

See if it still happens when you delete/rename /etc/asound.state /var/lib/alsa/asound.state and (after a reboot) you recreate them using /etc/init.d/alsasound save and alsactl store

EddyC, see pappy_mcfae's post above. It is likely this is a kernel bug, and you could either file a bug report or downgrade to a kernel that does not have this issue.

audiodef,

There are times when I wonder what's happening at kernel-dot-com. There was a period of time before KMS became stable that I had to stick with an older kernel source that didn't demand it. That period was about nine months long. What a drag.

I say again folks, send bug reports. Even better, perhaps post the bug report here so others can see if it fits their situation as well. That way, they can keep an eye on coming changes.

Cheers,
Pappy

I have an Intel HDA and had sound problems at first when upgrading to 3.7, which I fixed by deleting asound.state and rebooting.

If you want to narrow it down further, it's probably not even necessary to reboot: just restart the alsasound script. Good luck.

That's what I did but apparently there are two different problems since it didn't work for other people.

Or it could be the save alsasound on shutdown setting, I have that disabled, so after deleting the asound.state, the init script does not write it back before the reboot for me.

And having said that, I am still having problems with ALSA and some other weird stuff happening, so I am going to go with 3.6 until the major quirks in 3.7 are resolved.

Nothing new to add but I have the same issue with 3.7.1 -
Code:

# /etc/init.d/alsasound restart
alsasound     | * WARNING: you are stopping a boot service
alsasound     | * Storing ALSA Mixer Levels ...                           [ ok ]
alsasound     | * Restoring Mixer Levels ...
alsasound     |alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:3:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsasound     |alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:7:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsasound     |alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:8:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state
alsasound     |alsactl: set_control:1464: Cannot write control '3:9:0:Playback Channel Map:0' : File descriptor in bad state                              [ ok ]


I'm assuming it was the same with 3.7.0 - I use Intel HDA also, but have not lost any sound (hence why I only noticed this crop up last night when I saw OpenRC throw the messages out for me).
