    No sound with snd-hda-intel module on Fedora 8

    I am running an Inspiron 1420 laptop from Dell and I have unfortunately not gotten sound to work. I have tried many of the seemingly (to me) random suggestions on this forum and others with people with similar problems. I have also tried the pulseaudio "perfect setup" instructions on their website. However, I really do not understand enough of what I am doing to know if some settings have been stomping on others.
    I have included the output of everything that I know to be relevant to sound including some bolding where I considered part of the output to be more important than others. I would appreciate any help towards getting this to work including any pertinent explanation as to why some things don't work.
    Also, I have been using "aplay /usr/share/sounds/shutdown1.wav" to test sounds. I am not sure if this is the best at-least-something-works test.

    One thing that has worked for me on the acer was to create a file /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-plugins.
    The file just has one line

    options snd-hda-intel model=acer

    I know that has worked for a few people with Acers and at least one with a Toshiba (errm, obviously, he put model=toshiba) .

    It requires a reboot. Worth a shot. Also, see if you can get sound as root. That will help narrow down the problem.

    I had problems on my Inspiron 1520 with F8 and ended up removing pulseaudio. It worked but the sound was poor. When I installed F8 x64 I found Kmix (I use kde) didn't have output enabled. Turned that on and sound works very well with pulseaudio.
    Probably doesn't help you though.

    my dell 1420 work fine, may help********Oct 30 2007**********
    I found a very useful reference for me made my speaker working now!
    useful link

    according to instruction:
    rsync -avz --delete rsync://alsa.alsa-project.org/hg alsa-cvs
    cd alsa-cvs/alsa-driver
    ./cvscompile --with-cards=hda-intel --with-card-options=all
    make install
    reboot

    if not work
    edit modprobe.conf the snd-hda-intel line should look like ...
    options snd-hda-intel model=dell-3stack
    then in alsamixer, move your adjust Master value, you will get the sound work...

    ** it works for me if modify the modprobe.conf as above

    Never Mind the Branding :0)

    I got the same chip to work yesterday by adding, in

    /etc/modprobe.d
    a file called

    alsa-base
    in which I added a single line saying

    options snd-hda-intel model=lenovo
    ...and yes indeed I have an ASUS F9laptop... I am guessing the kernel has some hack for this 'High Def' soundcard from Intel under the name Lenovo (or Toshiba, or whatever as it seems to happen).

    Please notice I have REMOVED all PulseAudio and INSTALLED all alsa stuff.

    Works all; vlc, xmms, flash, xine...

    Cheers

    Talking Thank you

    Thank you so much bilyhui!

    Recompiling alsa from the cvs repository with hda-intel flags worked for me (with the same modprobe.conf change).
