no sound after reinstalling

Jamie Griffin-3
Hi everyone

After i reinstalled my os the other day, i've noticed there is no sound now. It did work fine prior to this. I only noticed it because i had the bell sound enabled on the konsole but could not hear it.

I've checked to make sure it wasn't something silly like being on mute, but that is not the case.

I'm not sure if this tells much, but 'dmesg | grep sound' shows:

ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c:2333: autoconfig: line_outs=1 (0xf/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c:2337:    speaker_outs=1 (0xd/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c:2341:    hp_outs=1 (0xa/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_codec.c:2349:    inputs: mic=0x13, fmic=0xe, line=0x0, fline=0x0, cd=0x0, aux=0x0
ALSA sound/pci/hda/patch_sigmatel.c:1306: dac_nids=1 (0x5/0x0/0x0/0x0/0x0)
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_generic.c:683: hda_generic: no proper input path found
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_generic.c:430: hda_generic: no proper output path found
ALSA sound/pci/hda/hda_generic.c:1001: hda_generic: no PCM found

Which suggests to me (correct me if i'm wrong) that there might be a problem.

i've had a look in yast->hardward->sound, and the sound card is showing there as:

82801H (ICH8 Family) HD Audio Controller
Configured as sound card number 0
Driver snd-hda-intel

I don't know if there is any more information you need, please let me know. I wasn't comfortable making any changes without getting some advice from you guys first.  

I'm using Dell xps laptop, opensuse 10.3 (KDE 3.5).

Hoping it's something simple, and would really appreciate some help.

TIA

I have managed to solve this using alsaconf in a root shell.

Sorry to have posted unnecessarily.

Hi Ed

I simply logged into a root shell, entered the 'alsaconf' command and followed t
he prompts, accepted the default values and it configured the sound card automat
ically. A 1 minute process really.

I wasn't aware of that utility, and found an archive from another list where someone else had posted a similar issue.

He did- he just ran alsaconf from a root shell ;-). I tend to just use
alsaconf also and not bother with SUSE's sound setup.

alsaconf is the configurator that comes with ALSA. It is part of
alsa-utils.

Thanks to all;
    I am saving things like this for reference. I have seen many sound
issues in the past, and a number of users I know are not subscribed to
this list. So I help where I can.
