No sound with AMD Hudson Azalia (64-current) Ottavio Caruso 9/6/13 3:32 PM
Hi,

after a bit of trouble I was able to install Slackware 64 current on
my Packard Bell Easynote TE BZ  11.

The big stumbling block right now is no sound at all.

In alsamixer I can see two sound cards:
0 - ATI R6xx HDMI with no sound control (default)
1 - Realtek ALC  269VB (not muted)


These are some outputs:
root@darkstar:~# aplay -l

This is the only command that doesn't generate an error:

Playing WAVE '/usr/share/sounds/alsa/Noise.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little
Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mon

But no sound is played.

I'm a bit at loss and any help is welcome.

The first thing that I would do is to double check in alsamixer that the
channels are not only unmuted, but also have rather high levels.

If that doesn't help I would next try to google for something like
"1022:780d alsa" to see if there are any trouble with your specific sound
chipset.

The "Generic" shows that the driver does not know your hardware.
Try a newer kernel.

Thanks Clemens (and Henrik for the previous post).

This is the newest possible kernel (3.10.9).

As per Henrik, I spent the whole night googling around, I haven't
found a possible solution, so I returned the unit to store, which
kindly refunded me the money.

I am not sure what to do next. I don't want to reinvest this money
into another Windows 8 laptop. Here in the UK Linux Emporium sells
overpriced and slightly obsolete laptops and I don't honestly think
they're worth the money. A desktop is out of the question at the
moment (maybe if there was a tiny all-in-one).

I like tablets but it's quite clear that Stuart (and possibly Eric)
are not willing to invest time and money into porting the ARM build
fully onto tablets (this has been discussed at length on LQ forums).

That doesn't leave me much room for running Slackware on bare metal.
This one may have well been my last ever Slackware installation. Pity!

You could probably have got it to go OK.  This from google:
