Re: Two Lenny problems
Excuse me, I did not complete the assignment last time, alsa-utils and
cdtool are both installed. They are shown in Synaptic as being installed
and, when I issued the dpkg-query command for them, they were identified
just as was alsa-base. I didn't realize that separate commands were
needed, so it looked like alsa-utils was not installed.
No, there are no audio jacks on the system other than those on the sound
adapter card. The card is connected to the front headphone jack by an
internal cable, which is the only other audio jack on the system. The
adapter card was with the system when I got it. I did not get this system
new, but from a recycling service, so I don't know what was originally
packaged with the system. FYI: there are four jacks on the card:
mic/digital-out (blue), out 1 (green), out 2 (black), out 3 (yellow).
I can remove the heat-sink of the unidentified chip, wipe off the
conductive cream and see if it is a sound chip, if you so desire, although
I have seen many systems come through the recycling service and not one
had a sound chip with a heat-sink on it. Since the unit is identified in
lspci as an 82801 family and that is the number of the chipset, it makes
sense that it is integrated into the chipset, but I don't know for sure.
I'll see if I can find out at the Intel site if the 82801 family
integrates sound into the chipset. Yes, it does: Intel HD audio
Technology and Intel AC97 Technology. So, why didn't setting all the
"Devices" categories in the Sound Preferences dialog window to "CA0106"
work? I tried that along with setting them all to Alsa, Autodetect, and
ICH958. Hmmm. Now there is no ICH958 choice in the various device
selections. What do you think? I also noted that there are four "CA0106"
choices in Sound Events, Music and Movies, and Sound Playback, doe it
matter which of the four is chosen?
