Re: a question on motherboard replacement - audio problem
Everything that is in the hard disk, installed using the old
motherboard, seems to work well with the new motherboard, except for sound.
After installing the new motherboard, I didn't run alsaconf and this is
how my sound was "behaving":
Gnome events sounds were very distorted and I could not make other
applications to obtain any sound. The applications are mplayer; browser
plugins like java, mplayer and flash; totem, xmms.
Of course the system was using a previous alsa configuration, set for a
different sound card. Thus, I ran alsaconf.
After I run alsaconf, all the above mentioned applications present a
satisfactory sound, however, Gnome events sounds do not play anymore.
I don't run Gnome so I cant help here. Maybe you need to reconfigure
Gnome to use alsa for sound events once you have alsa up and running.
After I terminate the Gnome session or even restart the computer, the
alsaconf setup seem to be lost as the sound condition reverses to the
one as described prior the alsaconf with the new motherboard.
Did you run 'alsactl store' before rebooting.
I noticed this alsa error whenever the system or Gnome restart: No state
is present for card SI7012.
According to this page:
http://www.infosys.tuwien.ac.at/Staff/tg/SiS7012/ the audio in the new
motherboard doesn't seem to be unsupported by Linux.
Based on the above, and due to the sound issue, should I reinstall
Debian Sarge again or is there another thing that I should install or
reinstall, or run again, in order to fix this sound issue?
I doubt a complete reinstall is necessary. If the above doesn't help try
posting more info e.g. which kernel and distribution etc.
