The sound server will continue, using the null output devise

ALSA:
Error while instalizing the sound driver:

The sound server will continue using the null output device.

as i said before, i've looked all over the forums but haven't been able to find anything. here is my entire lsmod output incase you need it.

Go to www.alsa-project.org. Click on 'SoundCard' links, select your manufacturer (Creative or whatever), and then find your card. When you find your card, you'll see a link to details on how to set things up. The downloads are available at alsa-project's home page, and the alsa-users mailing list (accessible at the home page, too) is quite useful.

Hi Iseek,

You have to tell us your hard-ware specification (in this case, sound-card) you can find it by typing command in terminal : lspci.

Hi, I am completely new to linux.

I recenlty installed Ubuntu inside VMWare 6. The sound worked and it used drivers called ES1371. My real soundcard is an X Fi elite pro. But the sound came out perfectly...

Now I installed Ubuntu in a dual boot with Vista.

I am not getting any sound and Ubuntu doesn't detect any soundcard.

Is there anything I can do to make the sound work, I know it works since inside VMWare it did...

Thanks

Oh -- I should mention -- my sound card is:

nVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2)

I don't understand; where am I supposed to go; what am I supposed to do? I think I need some sort of driver for Ubuntu 9.04, Acer computer, for the nVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2) card -- at least, that's what lcpci says is my soundcard.

Again, help greatly appreciated.

Hi Crunchie!

Thanks for your post -- but unfortunately a driver for my soundcard -- nVidia Corportation MCP61 High Definition Audio (rev a2) was not one of the cards on their download list for linux (Ubuntu 9.04 in my case).

Help would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,

-- Saul

hai, i hv installed ubuntu 9.04 and i hv a problem with audio.... no sound is coming.... my sound card is

00:1a.1 USB Controller: Intel Corporation 82801I (ICH9 Family) USB UHCI Controller #5 (rev 03)

can anyone tell me wt to do..........

I believe I am responding to the person with the acer aspire with a nvidia card in it running 9.04. This worked for some folks over at ubuntuforums.org. I think they had Realtek cards.

The following may work anyway, and can be undone by merely opening the file again and deleting the lines added if not. They are easily found due to being at the end.

Reboot after each change to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Run the following command in Terminal

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf

Add these 2 lines to the end of the alsa-base.conf file:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=auto

If those alsa-base.conf options don't work:

alias snd-card-0 snd-hda-intel
options snd-hda-intel model=acer-aspi

On my sony vaio I needed the last line to be

options snd-hda-intel model=sony-assamd
