Hi list,

I've a problem with sound on a Thinkpad X60, which has an Intel HDA chip.

This is what I see in dmesg:

hdac0: <Intel 82801G HDA Controller> mem 0xee240000-0xee243fff irq 17 at
27.0 on pci0
hdacc0: <Analog Devices AD1981HD HDA CODEC> at cad 0 on hdac0
hdaa0: <Analog Devices AD1981HD Audio Function Group> at nid 1 on hdacc0
pcm0: <Analog Devices AD1981HD (Analog)> at nid 5 and 25,8 on hdaa0
hdacc1: <Conexant (0x2bfa) HDA CODEC> at cad 1 on hdac0
unknown: <Conexant (0x2bfa) HDA CODEC Modem Function Group> at nid 2 on
hdacc1 (
no driver attached)

and from sndstat:

FreeBSD Audio Driver (newpcm: 32bit 2009061500/i386)
Installed devices:
pcm0: <Analog Devices AD1981HD (Analog)> (play/rec) default

and from mixer:

Mixer vol      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer pcm      is currently set to 100:100
Mixer speaker  is currently set to 100:100
Mixer cd       is currently set to   1:1
Mixer rec      is currently set to   1:1
Mixer igain    is currently set to  42:42
Mixer ogain    is currently set to 100:100
Mixer monitor  is currently set to  67:67
Recording source: cd

But I have no sound. This is using Gnome 2.32 on 9.1-R. I did initially
accidentally install Pulseaudio, but have subsequently deleted it and
reinstalled everything that depended on it without the Pulseaudio

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance.

Peter Harrison.

ps copying this via the gmail web interface as it didn't seem to make it
through from Mutt. Apologies if it appears twice.
