Hi

I have been trying to get sound to work correctly on my Acer Apire 8930G with
no success. I have already tried to get a resolution at the forum. The user who
was helping me there suggested that i file a bug.

I am pasting my findings here (the entire thread is available at
https://forums.opensuse.org/english/get-technical-help-here/multimedia/484375-sound-hda-intel-alc889-analog.html#post2542434)

I ran also-info.sh and my output is at
http://www.alsa-project.org/db/?f=83678a06bd03818ed55d40674cd315453af74cee

When i run speaker-test -c6 -Dplug:surround51 -t wav -l1, i get a segmentation
fault!
-----------------------------------------
speaker-test -c6 -Dplug:surround51 -t wav -l1

speaker-test 1.0.26

Playback device is plug:surround51
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 6 channels
WAV file(s)
Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
Buffer size range from 22 to 87381
Period size range from 11 to 43690
Using max buffer size 87380
Periods = 4
was set period_size = 21845
was set buffer_size = 87380
Segmentation fault
----------------------------------

When I run speaker-test -c6 -l5 -twav, this is what i get

speaker-test -c6 -l5 -twav

speaker-test 1.0.26

Playback device is default
Stream parameters are 48000Hz, S16_LE, 6 channels
WAV file(s)
Rate set to 48000Hz (requested 48000Hz)
Buffer size range from 32 to 349525
Period size range from 10 to 116509
Using max buffer size 349524
Periods = 4
was set period_size = 87381
was set buffer_size = 349524
0 - Front Left
4 - Center
1 - Front Right
3 - Rear Right
2 - Rear Left
5 - LFE

I hear sound for all the channels except LFE. However, this is how it is -
most sounds from all speakers
Front left - 'Front left' is heard from Rear left and Front left
Front Center - 'Front Center' is heard from Rear Right and Front Center
Front Right - 'Front Right' is heard from the Sub Woofer (Tuba in this case)
Rear Right - 'Rear Right' is heard from Front Right but it is barely audible
Rear Left - 'Rear Left' is heard from Front Left but is barely audible

I noticed in the also output that the output is shown as Mono. Should it not
be Stereo? There is definitely something wrong here. I have also tried changing
the model in options and the index and turning on enable_msi. Some of them does
not produce any sound and some do but none in the right channels.

Thanks
