I am running R6.03.00 and I cannot get any audio playback.

I ran alsaconf it detected the correct audio card. Ali M5455 same device is output from lspci.
Code:
00:04.0 Multimedia audio controller: ALi Corporation M5455 PCI AC-Link Controller Audio Device (rev 20)


I also see the correct device from aplay -l
Code:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: M5455 [ALi M5455], device 0: Intel ICH [ALi M5455]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: M5455 [ALi M5455], device 2: Intel ICH - IEC958 [ALi M5455 - IEC958]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0


I checked alsamixer made sure volume levels were ok. I tried to play a test sound using aplay /usr/shared/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav but no sound.

Thanks.

For what its worth I disabled the onboard sound and put in a soundblaster then did those same steps.
alsaconf
alsamixer
aplay /usr/shared/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav

It played fine. Then tested TV and DVD both worked. The only issue is I cannot get the alsamixer settings to save after a reboot.

Tried "alsactl store" but it didnt work.

yaplej,

I don't mean to insult you, but have you tried the alsactl store as root?

Just a thought

No insult taken but yes I have tried alsactl store as root. Also from an ALT+X shell as the myth user.

I was more interested in why the onboard ALi M5455 audio didnt work. Everything seemed to be detected correctly and setup correctly too. Kind of wishing for a known support issue. If it should work then its going to bug me to no end.

Just did a quick google and whilst these are not specific to LinHES, they are to ARCH so hopefully they may help you. Have a look at:
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=69853
http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=499969

I just thought to look at my system and neither of these post are appropriate. I did find in /etc/rc.d/ a file called alsa which is the script that does the restoration of the sound settings. Acording to http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_Boot_Process functions in the /etc/rc.d/ folder and called during the boot process.

Sorry can't be much help, just really food for thought.

Adding the alsa daemon to /etc/rc.conf did not help.

I added "alsactl restore" to my /etc/rc.local that did not help either. This box is a diskless frontend so I wonder if its not mounting the nfs share quick enough before it tried to run the scripts.

Manually running alsactl restore does work or running the /etc/rc.local script manually works too.

The startup script location and init system that LinHES uses is different than Arch. LinHES uses runit for starting services and /etc/runit/1.local is the equivalent of /etc/rc.local. See this wiki page.

The alsactl restore should be run on boot by runit if the alsa-utils is set to run. To enable it run:
Code:
sudo add_service.sh alsa-utils

Thanks so much for that. At least with the soundblaster card I now have sound when the system boots.

Still wondering why it did not work with the original onbard sound but maybe I will have time later to dink with that.
