My computer has a motherboard Gigabyte GA-P35 family. In the schematic in
manual is showed an Intel ICH9 sound processor, in audio section of product
specification is showed a Codec Realtek ALC889A.
openSUSE 11.1 detect an Intel ICH9 family soundcard, but, at least, no sound
in KDE 4.1.3. After some install and uninstall of the soundcard (yast), I
observe that KDE Phonon system refuse Intel ICH9 and put as your default
soundcard the Realtek ALC889A.
My question is: how Phonon obtain the right information about soundcard and
yast not do?
I'm no expert, but I had/have similar problems.
What I learned is this :
Intel HDA is a sound-architecture that has a front-end : ICH9 (ICH8, ...
?) and a backend : yours is an ALC889A, mine is an ALC883.
I had to configure the alsa-driver to use the right parameters. See in
the driver-documentation of snd_hda_intel and search for ALC889 (if it's
I can't give more information because I don't have 11.1 system at hand
and my 'problem' system is at home.
It's a problem system because I can't use my 'front' and
inputs/outputs independently and other sound-related problems (like
recording). With OS10.3 I have to compile drivers for sound and network.
OS11.0 also had sound-problems so I installed my old Soundblaster-live
card but this wasn't acceptable either. I did have a try with 11.1/64
but I didn't have time yet to fully test all sound I need, so I'm still
I hope this gives you a starting-point.
