Automatic detection of sound card did not work...sometimes
 
My machine has a problem with sound card detection. About half the time, it can't find the sound card. I want to get this solved (either that or just wait for the time the sound works and never reboot again:) ) I want to make sure this is a software issue and not my new motherboard being flaky.

The specs:
Fedora Core 5 x64
MSI k8ngm2 motherboard with integrated Nforce chipset for sound (MCP51)
Using KDE

When I go into the sound card detection, it shows my card, but the "Default PCM" device is blank. If I tell it to play the sample sound, I hear nothing and if I click "No" I get the message:

Automatic detection of the sound card did not work. Audio will not be available on the system.
You can inspect /root/scsound.log and file a new bug
at http://bugzilla.redhat.com.
In the dmesg it has the error:

hda-intel: Error creating card!
HDA Intel: probe of 0000:00:10.1 failed with error -12

one other interesting piece of information:
Quote:

[root@polaris dev]# cat /proc/asound/cards
0 [CX8801 ]: CX88x - Conexant CX8801
Conexant CX8801 at 0xfc000000
for some reason, some program (don't know what yet) has decided the audio input from my capture card is the ideal sound card.


I really don't know how to solve this issue. I've tried flashing the BIOS, but that didn't solve the problem.

When the sound card is detected, the sound is perfectly fine.

Any ideas? (or better yet solutions?)

Have you run
alsaconf
yet?
If not, try that.
ALSA will(should) write a config file.

Use
man alsaconf
to get info... or use the KDE Help Center which also can display man and other documents.

The KDE mixer will save your sound level settings IF you check the widget box to do that: kmix -> Settings -> restore volumes on login.

I doubt that it is your mainboard causing the problem but having the BIOS Plug-n-Play setting to "OFF" (disabled ... whatever) might help a bit.

HTHelps...

PS: looking on the FC mailing lists might help you too.

I think this is working now. I upgrade to the latest version of Alsa and the problem seems to have gone away.

Hi,
I've got the same problem.
When I boot my computer, I also get
Quote:

hda-intel: Error creating card!
HDA Intel: probe of 0000:00:1b.0 failed with error -12
And then, I have to run manually alsaconf to have my sound back without any other problem... Anyway it's quite boring to do at each reboot :(

Does anybody have a solution?

Thanks a lot
