[EN] [Solved] No sound
« on: 2014/09/01, 06:38:04 »
Hi,
I'm setting up siduction on a new box. Most things work well but I can't get sound working.

Code: [Select]
effo@siductionbox:~$ lspci -nn | grep -i audio
00:01.1 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD/ATI] Trinity HDMI Audio Controller [1002:9902]
00:14.2 Audio device [0403]: Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. [AMD] FCH Azalia Controller [1022:780d] (rev 01)

Code: [Select]
effo@siductionbox:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards
 0 [HDMI           ]: HDA-Intel - HDA ATI HDMI
                      HDA ATI HDMI at 0xfeb44000 irq 58
 1 [Generic        ]: HDA-Intel - HD-Audio Generic
                      HD-Audio Generic at 0xfeb40000 irq 16

Code: [Select]
effo@siductionbox:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: HDMI [HDA ATI HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC887-VD Analog [ALC887-VD Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

In KDE Multimedia settings I have tested all devices but no luck. Backend VLC. GStreamer is installed too but I never tried that.

Any ideas on how to solve this...?

did you look at a mixer, like pavucontrol? your system uses pulseaudio, so pavucontrol or veromix are better suited than kmix. Make sure nothing is muted.

I installed pavucontrol but when I run it I get


"Connection to PulseAudio failed. Automatic retry in 5s


In this case this is likely because PULSE_SERVER in the Environment/X11 Root Window Properties
or default-server in client.conf is misconfigured".


Reboot, but still the same.


BTW, I doesn't seem to have pulseaudio installed...


Code: [Select]
root@siductionbox:/home/effo# dpkg -l | grep puls
ii  libpulse-mainloop-glib0:amd64                               5.0-6                               amd64        PulseAudio client libraries (glib support)
ii  libpulse0:amd64                                             5.0-6                               amd64        PulseAudio client libraries
ii  vlc-plugin-pulse                                            2.2.0~pre2-4                        all          transitional dummy package for vlc

It seems like you failed to install it completely.
Code: [Select]
# apt-cache show libpulse0

Ok, you can't code, but you still might be able to write a bug report for Debian's sake

So it doesn't require pulseaudio.. Shall I apt-get it?

I don't use it, so dunno. But as you like to use it (and may people account it for a good piece of SW) why don't you give it a try.

On the other hand, still we don't know whether or not the output is muted. So open a VT (virtual terminal) and open "alsamixer". It works without pulseaudio. Look for muted devices, especially master and pcm. And if not, give gstreamer a try.
