Hello Group -

I'm really confused about what's gone wrong with my sound. Total
Silence even though it was working less than two weeks ago after an
upgrade to 8.10. User error?, or a bad patch maybe...can you help?

I'm running ubuntu 8.10 on a 64-bit machine

I have done some research and have been following the steps I found at
this posting:

http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=205449&highlight=comprehensive+...

First step is this:
results appear normal.

reid@linux-rv:~$ aplay -l
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: V8237 [VIA 8237], device 0: VIA 8237 [VIA 8237]
Subdevices: 4/4
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
Subdevice #1: subdevice #1
Subdevice #2: subdevice #2
Subdevice #3: subdevice #3
card 0: V8237 [VIA 8237], device 1: VIA 8237 [VIA 8237]
Subdevices: 1/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
reid@linux-rv:~$

_____________________________________________________________________________

Second step:
reid@linux-rv:~$ lspci -v
:
:
00:11.5 Multimedia audio controller: VIA Technologies, Inc.
VT8233/A/8235/8237 AC97 Audio Controller (rev 60)
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Device 80b0
Flags: medium devsel, IRQ 22
I/O ports at c800 [size=256]
Capabilities:
Kernel driver in use: VIA 82xx Audio
Kernel modules: snd-via82xx

Looks Ok, I think

______________________________________________________________________

Third step:

reid@linux-rv:~$ sudo modprobe snd-via-82xx
[sudo] password for reid:
FATAL: Module snd_via_82xx not found.
reid@linux-rv:~$

That's not good, or expected.

Fourth step (sorry about the screwy formatting):

reid@linux-rv:~$ lsmod|grep snd
snd_via82xx 36904 3
snd_via82xx_modem 21900 0
gameport 21776 1 snd_via82xx
snd_seq_dummy 11524 0
snd_ac97_codec 133080 2 snd_via82xx,snd_via82xx_modem
ac97_bus 10368 1 snd_ac97_codec
snd_pcm_oss 52608 0
snd_mixer_oss 25088 1 snd_pcm_oss
snd_pcm 99208 4
snd_via82xx,snd_via82xx_modem,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss
snd_seq_oss 42368 0
snd_mpu401_uart 16768 1 snd_via82xx
snd_seq_midi 15872 0
snd_rawmidi 34176 2 snd_mpu401_uart,snd_seq_midi
snd_seq_midi_event 16768 2 snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi
snd_seq 67168 6
snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi,snd_seq_midi_event
snd_timer 34320 2 snd_pcm,snd_seq
snd_seq_device 16404 5
snd_seq_dummy,snd_seq_oss,snd_seq_midi,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq
snd 79432 18
snd_via82xx,snd_via82xx_modem,snd_ac97_codec,snd_pcm_oss,snd_mixer_oss,snd_pcm,snd_seq_oss,snd_mpu401_uart,snd_rawmidi,snd_seq,snd_timer,snd_seq_device
snd_page_alloc 17680 3 snd_via82xx,snd_via82xx_modem,snd_pcm
soundcore 16800 1 snd

So...I'm not sure what to look for here....

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Reid
